John McCain Understands the Frustrations of ‘Occupy Wall Street’

When it comes to political menopause, John McCain leads the pack in hot flash mood swings. He’s drafted amnesty bills with Ted Kennedy; chosen Sarah Palin as his running mate; insulted the Tea Party; done 180 degree election year turnarounds to appease conservatives; and now he’s kinda-sorta down with Occupy Wall Street:

The 2008 GOP presidential nominee said he understands the growing protest movement’s concerns over Washington bailouts of major financial institutions.

“Down in Arizona today, Maricopa County has the highest number of homes underwater of any place in this country,” he told reporters Wednesday. “And it’s disgraceful that we took care of the financial institutions, and we did nothing about the housing crisis. So I understand their frustration.”

He later quipped that he may be the “only” Republican does.

So what’s McCain saying? That he’s partly responsible for Occupy Wall Street because of his vote for TARP, or because he’s part of the one percent?

I’ve seen plenty of interviews with the Occupiers, and I’m not sure I’ve heard any of the “Birkenstocks on the ground” foot soldiers mention the subprime crisis as being what motivated them to show up.

Sister Toldjah has a little more on the kind of frustration that McCain understands. This guy didn’t mention the housing crisis as being a motivator either.
