John McCain did his "Captain America" routine and suspended his champaign to fly back to Washington, DC and the press followed like baby ducklings all in a row - amazed by his apparent leadership.
"For the Country" was his mantra, and everyone cheered his heroism. He sat in a joint meeting with the president and his competition and said nothing, not a single syllable, for forty minutes, while Obama asked questions as to the course the current leader of the United States was going to take to turn the economic fortunes of our nation around and stop the bleeding.
The initial House vote turned out to be a bucket of crap - supposedly because Nancy is such a powerful witch and cast a spell on the Republican membership.
Obama boasted that a prospective Commander in Chief should be able to multi-task and within 48 hours of that blasphemy McCain put the country’s best economic interests aside and restarted his suspended champaign.
Nobody said a word about John’s apparent lack of leadership and until the new bill was loaded with sugar - it would barely pass the House. Negating any image of McCain’s leadership and he put his hero cape away.
Point to all of this: The economy is going to be subject number one for this race.
