Didn't the DemocRats claim McCain & GOP are nothing but Bush clones? Well, the evidence is to the contrary, they stood up AGAINST his proposal & warnings!
The Republicans are not going to march under Bush's order when they know they are marching towards the edge of a cliff!
Latest polls indicate that only 30% of the American public support this bailout. McCain can make a powerful case that he is representing the people by voting against this with the rest of the Republicans. So far they stood their ground.
The Democrats tried to steal McCain's thunder by declaring prematurely that there was a DEAL, when there was NEVER a deal. They lied.
