Yesterday, while on the campaign trail, McCain complained "Senator Obama saw an economic crisis and he’s found a political opportunity. My friends this is not a time for political opportunism, this is a time for leadership,”
I'm confused. McCain is upset that Obama is using the current economic crisis to differentiate himself and his policies from those of his opponent?
Is McCain suggesting that the crisis is so bad that it should be out of bounds for topics of discussion in this election year?
That can't be right because McCain feels that "the fundamentals of our economy are strong."
So now all of a sudden it's a 'crisis'?
If a political candidate isn't allowed to discuss the economic status of the country, and is called a sexist if he discusses a female opponent's beliefs/policies/history/record/experience/family in any way... it sure sounds like the Republican camp is simply saying "No fair bringing up anything that might make our candidate or our party look bad!"
