John McBush’s big moment in tonight’s “town hall” meeting might not have been his announcement of another big bailout…his suggestion that the government buy up all the bad mortgages in America…up to $300 billion on top of the $700 billion just signed into law last week. No, it might just have been his dismissive reference to Barack Obama as “that one.” Looking grumpy as usual, McCain could be seen tottereing around in the background often while Obama was speaking, as if lost. Referring to Obama as “that one” came across not only as goofy….did he forget Obama’s name?…but could be seen as near racist. His suggestion to nominate Meg Whitman, founder of eBay as his Treasury Secretary, on reflection also seems strange…maybe his solution to America’s financial crisis is…put America on eBay.
