It seemed the Dems had gotten enough protection into the bailout, oversight, caps on CEOs, incremental lending, help for home owners, to make the bailout acceptable. It seemed a done deal. Now McCain has told Reps to withdraw their support, it seems, just to avoid the Fri debate. If McCain is elected the deal will return to the original proposal and pass. This guy is off the rails completely. It's hard to believe the disdain the Reps have for the wellfare of this country.

On top of all that, McCain proposed less regulation and tax breaks for the wealthy.

WTF is this guy thinking?

I don't know, it's sounds far fetched that McCain could convince his fellow Republicans to can the deal for the sake of political cover for his obvious screw up with the debate. Unless they're all as desperate as McCain.

As long as 51% of this Country is painfully ignorant or in denial or both then McCain has a good shot.....how can anyone over the age of 8 not see that every move McCain makes is to hide his embarrassing girl. McCain's and Palin's motto is "the Country and it's people be damned, Republican Party first, people second"

McCain on his own....scary
Palin....a LOT scarier
Never having to hear Palin's name again after November......priceless.

It does sound far fetched, but the Repubs are about the Repubs and they are desperate....desperate enough to choose Palin...who ironically enough has caused them much more desperation.

True....I'm curious to know how many Republicans in leadership positions and involved in these "negotiations" are up for re-election in November. Anyone know?

I've read where the Dems accuse Boehmer (I think that's right) of acting on McCain's orders, but is there any proof? I'm voting for Obama anyway, but I find this very hard to believe that McCain would possibly sabatoge the economy just to get elected. Very sad if true.

McCain is now head of the republican party and he knows where the fissues are. He went straight to the house to talk to conservatives and he sort of gave them his support. All he needed to do was stay silent really. But his intentions were known.

Wednesday McCain said that the situation is dire. both he and Palin said that we are facing the next Great Depression. Then, he didn't even show up in DC til yesterday afternoon. Now there's talk of the GOP digging their heels in.

Make up your mind. Is this a dire situation or not? Does something need to be done now or not?

Country first, my a$$.

I read a report that after about 20 minutes into the Whitehouse meeting, Obama asked to hear from McCain. The only thing that McCain said was "I support the house republicans" (the alternative proposal).

This is getting really wierd.

As I said in another thread.....McCaiin is losing it big time.....it's going to be interesting to see if he shows up for the debate....if not....Obama will be there making his point that now is the time leaders need to be speaking to the people, and if he does show up without an agreement, he looks weak and like his camapign suspension was a ploy....either wasy he's stepped in it big time. Think of the country first? Not a chance.

Don't be suprised if they get a deal today and McCain shows up at the debate claiming to be the hero! It's sick.

The deal the democrats negotiated was a lemon and they knew it. They need the GOP to help them cover their asses. Watch McCain emerge triumphant with a better, Republican oriented bailout.

I suppose then the deal is done since McCain is on his way to the debate. Wow, what a gunslinger.

If he's bitch-slapping Obama over it tonight you know it'll take til Monday at least. I'm pissed I have to be at my niece's wedding and miss the floorshow.

LOL - this one is news to me too, Jack. But I won't hold my breath waiting for any definitive explanation or proof of this 'better Republican oriented bailout'.

The dems had enough votes to pass the damned thing themselves. If it was so great why didn't they just pass it? Why? Because they don't want to take the burn themselves.

Thanks for another of your biased, non-fact based opinions, but the reality is the dems and the conservative republicans wanted more oversight. It was Bush's party that shut him down. Nice try, but some of us actually read both sides of the story.

Keep breathing, because the proof will be that the taxpayers don't get stuck paying for the whole mess. That's why they jammed up the original plan in the first place. The Democrats were just fine with that solution.

If Bush is going on air to tell everyone this situation could cause a 'panic' then I'm beginning to see the hustle more clearly. If you caught Jon Stewart last night, he put the 'Iraq' speech side by side with the 'panic' speech and it appears they really didn't have to change too many key words. And we know how Iraq turned out.....greet us with flowers? The oil will pay for the war? As I said....everybody do the hustle.
