The Washington Post Writers Group’s E. J. Dionne, Jr. is sometimes called “the thinking liberal’s pundit.”
Today Dionne tires to blame Sen. McCain for the White House and Congress’ failure to reach a deal on the current financial mess. Dionne ends with this:
[Rep. Barney] Frank [D-Mass.] did not need McCain to make him bipartisan, and he grumbled before yesterday's White House gathering that it was a mere "photo op." After the meeting, Senate Banking Committee Chairman Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) called it "political theater" that may have stalled an agreement.While many in both parties contributed to the current mess, Frank and Dodd played – I’ve got to use the word – prime roles it bringing it about.
When I see and hear those two blaming everyone on the R side and then learn they’re "working on the bailout,” I get the feeling a bank teller must have gotten when he saw Jesse and Frank James walking up to his window.
Can you believe Dionne used Dodd and Frank to bolster his “blame McCain” column.
What must liberals think?
