MCCain Urges President to Act without Congressional Approval


www.huffingtonpost.com

I saw McCain make the proposal again during the NBC Nightly newscast. So he's serious. He really thinks that Bush should just spend $1 trillion without talking to Congress, without seeking approval, without building any sort of consensus -- without getting any protections whatsoever for taxpayers.

Okay. Um. I wonder what kind of president he'll be?
Cheney Sr. perhaps?

Is this not a damning statement? This seems like a sucker-punch to the american citizen. You don't matter. Of course they will spin it that politics would prevent an action, but we all saw the people's voice on the first bail-out rejection. So it was for show, it still looked cool.

Beyond Stupid.

I cannot begin to understand what the strategy is.


Maybe he decided he doesn't want to be president afterall. Is possible
. He can't withdraw or appear half-hearted, so he will occassionally slip out such deplorable comments.

Suuuuuuuurely his campaign manager is watching the polls on this issue.

I mean, SURELY this man is watching the polls.

No one other than the bankers, and Bush and Pelosi's family members want this bill to pass. lol

I am honestly scratching my head on the thought-processing that conjured up this idea. Perhaps it was a slip of the tongue and his ego refuses a public retraction? It's possible.

There is no campaign manager per se. They're all "aides".


We will see how he defends it in the next presidential debate.

I bet Obama won't touch it like Kerry wouldn't touch 9/11 truth in the 04' debates.

As long as nothing is at stake. Never bet on a sport where the outcome is being designed by people that like your money.

We should expect them to empty the treasury if an Obama win becomes inevitable.


Run away with the money before the commie gets it.

This has nothing to do with Bush or executive orders
He's quite right, the treasury and the Fed have a huge amount of money they can use as they please. All that money the Fed has been using for loans doesn't need approval, it's their money. All he's saying is that the Treasury, which has this money, should be spending it rather than waiting around for Congress. I agree, if they have the money, they should spend it, even though it won't fix the problem, neither will Congress' plan, so it doesn't matter. People should be asking why the Treasury isn't doing what it can, this isn't a Bush/McCain/Obama issue.
