Obama ‘Business as Usual’ Despite Pledges

February 15, 2009

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Senator John McCain said the Obama Administration was doing “business as usual” despite pledges of transparency, bipartisanship and avoiding top appointees with blemishes on their otherwise clean records.

He specifically said he was disappointed in the new Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner who had admitted to not fully paying his taxes.

Geithner now runs the IRS.

On the stimulus, McCain said, “I hope the next time we will sit down together and conduct truly bipartisan negotiations. This was not a bipartisan bill.”
