#12: Prematurely Taking Credit

McCain Saves Wall Street and Main Street! That's the headline the McCain camp was hoping for when he claimed credit for uniting Congress behind a victorious bail-out bill. Politico reports:

“I've never been afraid of stepping in to solve problems for the American people, and I'm not going to stop now,” McCain told a rally in Columbus, Ohio. “Sen. Obama took a very different approach to the crisis our country faced. At first he didn't want to get involved. Then he was monitoring the situation.”
McCain, grinning, flashed a sarcastic thumbs up.

“That's not leadership. That's watching from the sidelines,” he added to cheers and applause.

What a Maverick!
