It's stunningly pathetic. The Democrats (read Obama camp) are spreading a massive disinformation campaign about John McCain's trip to the Hill to work on a bi-partisan approach to the Wall Street bail-out plan.
American Power has the machiavellian strategery - lie and lie again.
Think Progress is leading the left's political attack on John McCain tonight, alleging that the Arizona Senator killed the bipartisan Wall Street rescue plan.
While to be expected, the McCain-killed-the-bailout meme is bogus. Jennifer Rubin explains:
The Democrats have begun a ludicrous game: try to blame John McCain for nixing a mythical deal that was eminently reachable before he forced Barack Obama back in town. Throw in some trash talk and you have a perfect display of shabbiness.
The tale does not mesh with any available facts from reports we are getting. First, there was no “deal” — hence the cries of help from Harry Reid and Hank Paulson on Wednesday for McCain to come to town. My own conversations with Senate offices bear this out: McCain’s entry helped push a deal among Senators, but House Republicans were never on board (and still aren’t). Second, unlike his mute counterpart, John McCain is taking an active role in the negotiations and a constructive one. Third, the House Democrats likely have the votes to pass a deal – they simply wanted cover from at least 100 House Republicans.
