Folks, not that we needed one, but we just got one more example of how and why the USA has lost it's role as leader of the free world.
As the world looked on, America's legislators huffed and puffed but could not put their petty party rivalries aside to resolve the world-wide crisis which is entirely of their own making.
Never again should any nation put its trust in that spent force of a nation. Alarmingly, however, those people have the power to wipe out life on earth with their weapons of mass destruction, so reluctantly we must avert our eyes and offer lip service in a show of undeserved respect to them.
America cannot any longer win wars—even ones they start against a nation a fraction of its size and wealth; America cannot care for their own citizens in times of natural disasters—Hurricane Katrina; America can no longer claim the moral high ground—Guantanamo Bay and the Iraq war in general. Now they have placed the worlds financial security in peril.
When it came right down to it, the McCain Republicans voted against the bill, they say, because their feelings had been hurt by Nancy Polusi. Pathetic. And shame on you!
And what was war hero McCain's first reaction? Word of the lost vote was hardly out when that pompous, blowhard, pretender and political opportunist John McCain was blaming his political opponent Barack Obama even though clearly McCain has much of the blame to shoulder—if only he were man enough to do so.
