McCain and House Republicans blame Obama and the Democrats.
Obama doesn’t really blame anybody and calls for calm.
Meanwhile…the quote that could very well sink McCain in all of this came from his top campaign strategist, Steve Schmidt yesterday on Meet The Press…
“What Senator McCain was able to do was to help bring all of the parties to the table, including the House Republicans, whose votes were needed to pass this.”
You can’t claim leadership on an issue and take credit for its success beforehand, and then turn around and blame Dems when 60% of them voted for the measure and almost 70% of your Republican compadres voted against it.
And, by the way, how irrelevant is Bush now? It’s like he doesn’t even exist.
