McCain Economic Comments Not Helping Him—tee hee

Take a look at Jack Cafferty’s blog today.  He rips McCain on his recent economic comments. 

His opening lines are:

“When you graduate 894th out of a class of 899, eventually it will show up.

And John McCain’s mediocre performance at the Naval Academy is showing up big time this week in his total lack of understanding of the nation’s financial crisis.”

Here’s a link to an opinion in the Wall Street Journal:   

I’m telling you guys he knows he can’t win.

    Sorry I forgot to make the links clickable. You’ll have to copy & paste, but each read is worth it!

    These guys are confident in their ability to steal elections — they don’t have to win them. They just have to get close. The dude not only thinks he is going to win, he is so sure of it that he thinks he can do anything he wants like nominating palin. Now he is just over his head because he doesn’t really understand this. Watch, this will be his spin: Just like you, this is all really, really complicated for meand I don’t understand it. . . but I will get the best minds together . . .

    Speaking of winning—Wildcats football today!

    First, go Cats. (Although the competition has not been tough.) Second, McCain chose Palin exactly to energize a conservative base, which can tip the result in a close election. There is a risk, because she may prove too embarrassing–but they think they can control that. Third, the focus on the economy works to the disadvantage of John McCain, even if Obama has not been as effective in his message on this as I would like. It will be a very interesting week of politics on Capitol Hill as Congress works on a massive bailout.

    George Will and Sam Donaldson fried him alive on “This Week” on Sunday. Christopher Hitchens thinks his candidacy should be all but dead after his dismal performance last week (though I think his analysis of why it’s not is, predictably, wrongly based on an assessment of Obama’s character rather than entrenched conservative anti-intellectualism and anti-Progressive politics). I think McCain is either so insane he doesn’t know how badly wrong he is or he is so ambitious he doesn’t care, for all the reasons Bob and LB give. Can they steal another one? They don’t have as many secretaries of state this time–particularly in Ohio, for example–but the reports of unfixed voting machine problems and gorked up electronic ballots are worrisome. On the other hand, I really do think the polls, which are now turning in Obama’s favor (check out Slate’s page) don’t begin to capture all of the newly registered D’s. Obama has the ground game advantage so if those folks show up and we get their votes counted–two big “ifs”–then we will indeed wake up happy on Nov. 5.

    I repeat—McCain, the maverick knows he will not win. Look–he’s conceding Michigan today!

    In spite of the maverick & his adorable partner, he’s done & he knows it.
