McCain lie 59,546,115: He will suspend his campaign.
Tucker Bounds, McCain spokesman, just told Andrea Mitchell,
Before John McCain suspended his campaign yesterday, the situation we were looking at looked very different than after he showed leadership and called for bipartisanship, to put partisanship aside and tackle this solution.
So many things wrong with this picture.
1. Tucker’s presence and comments on MSNBC alone are campaigning.
2. It was clear the Dems and Repubs were much closer to reaching a deal on the bailout package before McCain gave his politically preemptive press conference.
3. Tucker’s comments prove true all the claims that McCain wanted to swoop in and take all the credit for the Congressional cooperation on the bailout package. How? Cause his spokesperson just swooped in and gave him all the credit for the bail out package. So funny when just last week McCain was saying the fundamentals of the economy were strong.
