What Was That About Putting Politics Aside?
Amount of time it took the McCain campaign to use its supposedly apolitical stunt for political gain: Zero seconds.
This is from the McCain campaign statement announcing the resumption of campaign activities — or, at least, whatever activities actually stopped:
The difference between Barack Obama and John McCain was apparent during the White House meeting yesterday where Barack Obama’s priority was political posturing in his opening monologue defending the package as it stands. John McCain listened to all sides so he could help focus the debate on finding a bipartisan resolution that is in the interest of taxpayers and homeowners. The Democratic interests stood together in opposition to an agreement that would accommodate additional taxpayer protections.
Yeah, no politics here.
