The McCain campaign seems a little miffed that the election rhetoric is switching over from hockey moms and lipstick and onto the economy.
You can't blame them, really. Not when they've got a candidate going around telling people the economy is peachy keen and an opponent who cynically and politically tells people that they've got a candidate going around telling people the economy is peachy keen...
Top aides to Republican John McCain are claiming Democrat Barack Obama and his advisers are exploiting Wall Street's financial problems for political gain.
Aide Steve Schmidt, who worked for the Bush-Cheney team in 2004, told reporters Thursday aboard McCain's plane that Obama is "cheerleading this crisis."
Really, I think it's just disgusting how Barack Obama would exploit a national disaster to further his own party's fortunes. In fact, just take a look at what an insipid display of political exploitation this is on Obama's part...
Whoops. Sorry. That was totally the wrong video. It wasn't footage of Barack Obama cheerleading our economic downfall at all. It must have been something from the Republican National Convention two weeks ago.
I have no idea how that happened. I'm so embarrassed.
