The Verdict of Wall Street Journal: McCain Confused, Lying, Angry, and Unpresidential

The conservative, Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal ripped McCain some new holes in an editorial today. Here are some excerpts.

McCain confused:

“John McCain has made it clear this week he doesn’t understand what’s happening on Wall Street”

McCain lying:

“But this assault on Mr. Cox is both false and deeply unfair.”

McCain angry:

“Mr. McCain is sounding like a candidate searching for a political foil rather than a genuine solution. He’ll never beat Mr. Obama by running as an angry populist…”

McCain unpresidential:

“It’s also un-Presidential.”

With their nominee getting both direct and unintended poundings by conservatives like the WSJ, Fiorina, Rothschild, and Gramm, not to mention the mounting gaffes by McCain and Palin, the Republican party increasingly appears to be a ship without a rudder. Or perhaps a better analogy given the candidate: an aging fighter plane full of holes in a tailspin, nosediving to the ground. Maybe one with propellers.

  1. Great Post gorn. McCain doesn’t have a plan so let’s blame Obama. Not a good strategy.

    He looks worn out and tired. Whenever that happens his temper gets even worse, as we are witnessing. Hopefully, these scorching reviews of his behavior and lies will start sinking into the people that are diehard fans of his.

  2. And during today’s speech he was more bitter and angry and lying and blaming. I guess HE didn’t read this editoria. What pisses me off though is that one of the “pundits” compared his behavior to Al Gore’s. WTF.
