    I'm glad it failed and YESD McCain looks like a doofus.

    But Obama was absolutely absent. How does he not get caught in the spray?

    Obama misses the "spray" because he didn't put himself front and center and wrap himself up as the savior of this bill. He didn't make grand gestures about riding in and making it work...nor did he or his surrogates get on national television and take credit hours before the bill failed.

    And he couldn't even flip 13 dems to save Pelosi's bailout?

    Does this mean you're going to vote for him to do nothing?

    And John McCain couldn't flip 13 republicans to save Bush's bailout?

    Does this mean you're going to vote for him?

    Pelosi got 2/3 of the Dems to vote for this, how many votes did John McCain get for what he championed?

    Far as I know, ZERO.

    you saying it was Pelosi's bailout shows your partisan bias. Obama's party delivered the promised 140 democratic votes... All the Republicans need to do was deliver 78 votes to get a majority...they fell short by 13 votes.

    Why is is the Dems responsibility to provide 153 votes when this is supposed to be a BIPARTISAN BILL? bipartisan would indicate EQUAL support from both sides, would it not?

    Obama isn't doing nothing... He laid out the principals he thought were important and every one of those ended up in the bill presented for the vote.

    Why can't McCain convince even 78 members of his own party to put the country first when that's his tag line for his campaign?

    McCain may be taking a dive, but they both should be for supporting that monstrosity of a bill. What a disappointing display of conformity.

    It's the dem's responsibility as the majority party to get a majority vote. Pelosi poisoned the well with her vitriol just moments before the vote - is that leadership? I don't think so. That was completely unnecessary and revealed to the US and the rest of the world what a ridiculous bag of water she is.

    After that rant, I am actually pleased with the outcome. :D
