…when it comes to waste­ful spend­ing McCain is cer­tainly a leader:

If it seems like I’m angry, it’s because I am,” McCain said, tak­ing the White House to task for treat­ing the bill as left­over busi­ness — and not sub­ject to the full mea­sure of ear­mark reform promised by can­di­date Obama.

Last year’s busi­ness?” McCain asked, incred­u­lous. “The pres­i­dent will sign this appro­pri­a­tions bill into law. It is the president’s busi­ness. It is the pres­i­dent of the United States’ busi­ness. It is the pres­i­dent of the United States’ busi­ness to do what he said — stated — when we were in debate seek­ing the sup­port of the Amer­i­can peo­ple — where he said he would work to elim­i­nate earmarks.”

We need ear­mark reform and when I’m pres­i­dent, I will go line by line to make sure we’re not spend­ing money unwisely,” McCain said, read­ing back Obama’s words at a debate last fall. “That’s the quote, the promise of the pres­i­dent of the United States made to the Amer­i­can peo­ple in a debate with me in Oxford, Miss. So what is brought to the floor today — 9,000 earmarks.…So much for change.”

He is exactly right and the media’s “reha­bil­i­ta­tion” of McCain post elec­tion assures that his objec­tions will be cov­ered. Where was this voice dur­ing the campaign.

…when it comes to wasteful spending McCain is certainly a leader:

“If it seems like I’m angry, it’s because I am,” McCain said, taking the White House to task for treating the bill as leftover business — and not subject to the full measure of earmark reform promised by candidate Obama.

“Last year’s business?” McCain asked, incredulous. “The president will sign this appropriations bill into law. It is the president’s business. It is the president of the United States’ business. It is the president of the United States’ business to do what he said — stated — when we were in debate seeking the support of the American people — where he said he would work to eliminate earmarks.”

“We need earmark reform and when I’m president, I will go line by line to make sure we’re not spending money unwisely,” McCain said, reading back Obama’s words at a debate last fall. “That’s the quote, the promise of the president of the United States made to the American people in a debate with me in Oxford, Miss. So what is brought to the floor today — 9,000 earmarks.…So much for change.”

He is exactly right and the media’s “rehabilitation” of McCain post election assures that his objections will be covered. Where was this voice during the campaign.
