McCain Needs to Get His Facts Right aka McCain Does Not Know Crap...

Reading an article on CNN about McCain & Obama's reaction to the failure of the bailout, when I noticed something that really just did not add up.

Read these two quotes from the story and you will see what I mean:

"Sen. Barack Obama blasted Congress for not passing a financial rescue package Monday, while Sen. John McCain's campaign accused Obama and Democrats of putting 'politics ahead of country'."

"The bill failed by a vote of 205 to 228, with 140 Democrats and 65 Republicans voting in favor and 95 Democrats joining 133 Republicans against."
Um, can someone, anyone, tell me how this is Obama's and the Democrats fault of putting "politics ahead of country"? I know I can have problems with math, but I do not think this is one of those times. Assuming the CNN numbers correct (and I have no reason to assume otherwise), more Democrats voted for this then against and more Republicans voted against this then in favor for this.

To me, this seems like the republicans had more to do with killing this then the Democrats did. I think John McCain & his campaign needs to get their facts correct before they opens their mouths. Now I am not going to blame anyone for this failure, cus I really can not tell you who or what side is responsible (if anyone or any side is).

But what I can tell you is that they need to go back to the drawing board and figure something out that they can agree on. Because, if we do not get something passed by weeks end, I get a feeling we will be in The Great Depression, Part Deux. The Great Depression of the 1920's will look like child's games if we do not do something SOON...
