Adults Versus Schoolboys

Again, Obama is being the adult in the room, dealing with McCain's team of schoolboys. Here is Obama's statement

At 8:30 this morning, Senator Obama called Senator McCain to ask him if he would join in issuing a joint statement outlining their shared principles and conditions for the Treasury proposal and urging Congress and the White House to act in a bipartisan manner to pass such a proposal. At 2:30 this afternoon, Senator McCain returned Senator Obama’s call and agreed to join him in issuing such a statement. The two campaigns are currently working together on the details.

So Obama calls, asks that the campaigns COME TOGETHER, put POLITICS ASIDE to work on the crisis and guide Congress to a bipartisan solution.

McCain responds by issuing a partisan statement pre-empting the joint announcement, and wanting to avoid the debates.

Remember being a kid and having a fight with some punk and let's say something happens like a car accident and and you say, "let's stop fighting and go help that old woman who's been run over by a car," and the opponent says "sure" and then as you both put down your fists to go help the old lady, he lands one last punch in your gut. That's McCain.
