McCain Blames Self For Economic Meltdown

John McCain, yesterday:

“The fact is, that the same people that are now claiming credit for this rescue are the same ones that were willing co-conspirators causing these problems we are in.”

Politico, “McCain claims bailout credit”, Sept. 28, 2008:

“Previewing a McCain campaign message for the days ahead, top strategist Steve Schmidt claimed Sunday that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is partly responsible for the tentative agreement on a mortgage bailout that congressional leaders announced shortly after midnight.”

My friends: you will know their names.
