I just saw Rep. Barney Frank on C-SPAN addressing the press. He said they had worked out a bi-partisan agreement with Senate Democrats, Senate Republicans, House Democrats, and Secretary of Treasury Paulson. However, the House Republicans had refused to negotiate and instead offered some type of insurance plan which Paulson said would not work. It looks like John Boehner and the House Republicans are getting coached by John McCain. Did McCain show up today to try to get credit for a plan? McCain doesn't even serve on a Senate Committee that would be responsible for any of these Wall Street or banking problems. Obviously, McCain has influenced Boehner and the House Republicans to the point that they are now holding up the agreement. Word has it that the White House meeting with Bush was a worthless event.
> Do you remember when McCain said he was suspending his campaign? That was just baloney. His ads are still on TV and radio. He continues to do fundraising and making appearances. The McCain organization appears to be on the brink of total collapse. They seem to have no direction or stability. McCain's vice presidential running mate is definitely not ready for prime time. McCain is just plain scares me.
> Sen. Barack Obama will be at the debate tomorrow night. Although no one is sure that McCain will appear, it almost doesn't matter. McCain seems to be suffering from something. If Sen. Obama is the only candidate on the stage, it will allow voters to get to know him better.
