There is some telepathy going on between Bush and McCain, particularly on the bailout issue. Notice how both are AWOL on this issue. This country should change its name to S.U.S.A.

Come on, be reasonable, Obama is AWOL too, but I suppose he gets a free pass with you......

Look at McCain's campaign staff. Nearly 90% of them are ex-Bush.

Try taking off the rose colored lenses and look at Obama's advisors, specifically, the economic ones. Ooops, looks like most of them contributed DIRECTLY to this whole finance mess since many of them ran Freddy and Fanny...so don't talk to me about McCains advisors.....

Is that why he has picked up in the polls. It is a no-brainer to assess a candidate with a Keating 5 history and his campaign chair's company being on the payroll of Freddie and Fannie. You think those campaign advisors of Obama squealed on McCain?

Turmoil in the financial industry and growing pessimism about the economy have altered the shape of the presidential race, giving Democratic nominee Barack Obama the first clear lead of the general-election campaign over Republican John McCain, according to the latest Washington Post-ABC News national poll.

Do I really have to point out that McCain is the only candidate that read the warning signs and tried to pass a bill to deal with the finance mess in 2005? Much to his chagrin he couldn't get the support to bring it to the floor from either side of the house.

Do I also have to point out that the reason that little support was found for the bill was because no one wanted to tip the apple cart when it came to the cushy revolving door set up between the congress and Fanny and Freddy.

So if he is not getting support from the Republicans, there was something wrong with it. You think that all those other Republicans members are fools and that he and only he is the right one?

He is finished. Romney could have helped him here. And he is more worried about Obama not choosing Hillary?

except also that two McCain top advisors were on the Freddie Mac gravy train at a total of $45,000 a month for years -until August. Also the deregulation so loved by McCain was allowed to turn into a festering wound of financial fraud by the Bushies and Gramm McCains then top financial advisor calls us a Country of Whiners as we get stripped.

We need Change, not a wrecking ball. That is what even his Republican Senators fear. McCain is a wrecking ball, not someone who can craft things differently.

Just look at his knee-jerk reaction to the current crisis. "Fire SEC chairman Cox." Nobody even considered that suggestion, not even his Republican colleagues in the Senate. I guess Palin is the only one who agrees with him.

If he cannot work with his fellow Senators as a member of the Senate, people wonder how he will be able to work with them from the WH.

Again, you're being completely myopic. Do I really have to post the list of top GSE money receivers, (hint, they're all democrats). BY FAR democrats have enriched themselves and their campaign war chests far more that any GOPer to the detriment of us all. Not to mention the executive body of both the GSEs are packed with democrat sycophants, part off of the congressional revolving door.
