Ever Wonder What They Think?

Over at Hot Air (h/t Sadly No for the link to "Cap'n Ed") the comments section on how brave sir robin...I mean, John McCain, fought for principle in the white house meeting looks like this.

Rush Limbaugh gave a detailed description of what went down in the White House yesterday on his radio show. Apparently, Pelosi, Reid and the other Democrat Leaders deferred to Obama to lead the discussion. However, instead of acting in a bipartisan manner, Obama decided to rip the Republicans for their policy position on this matter. Obama was suppose to stick to support for the Democrat plan. Instead, he “got in their faces”.

Needless to say,the Republican Leaders led by Boehner responded vigorously to the attack. The meeting was totally derailed by Obama.

Another tells us it was practically fisticuffs:

We hear from several sources who were in the room that the meeting between Bush, John McCain (R-AZ) and Barrack Obama (D-IL) quickly devolved into a pissing contest between the two presidential candidates. Obama initially took control of the meeting, this while Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Harry Reid (D-NV) sat in silence. McCain then began to mumble something incomprehensible about "a plan" but we see no evidence that the AZ senator has formulated a serious proposal. So nasty and sharp was the exchange between McCain and Obama that President Bush had to get in between the two men.

But the real shocker is that they all believe that the bailout bill is no more than a stalking horse for which grand, left wing, commie front organization.? Oh, come on. No, not Move On. No, not Hitler. No, no, I'll wait.

Ok, here:

At the debate, Mcain has a great opportunity to go over the heads of the MSM and tell the American people to their faces he believes 100% of any “profits” from any bailout package belong to the American taxpayers. Period.

He then points out the current legislation among other things has a built in slush fund whereby the first 20% of profits - conceivably $100-$200 million (which belong to the taxpayer) will go instead to fund voter registration and other community activist groups - including ACORN which is presently facing criminal charges in over a dozen states.

Then he should call upon Pelosi to bring the bill to the floor, either with the 20% slush fund, or without, and have an up/down vote.

And you wonder why we struggle to reach 50 percent in this country?
