Circular Firing Squad
In a post yesterday, I suggested that given recent developments in the financial markets, it was reasonable for John Sununu to steer away from both John McCain and the Bush Administration on economic policy matters, if necessary to keep his campaign competitive. Well, he may have just gotten some additional help in that regard from McCain and other Congressional Republicans.
McCain’s all-out populist assault on Wall Street and SEC Chairman (and former Republican Congressman) Chris Cox earlier today is apparently not sitting well with some GOP legislators. And they are in turn voicing sharp criticism of the Bush Administration’s overall handling of the financial crisis. So, with the Republican economic message now fragmented across the campaign and two branches of government, Sununu clearly has some additional cover (and incentive) to go his own way should he need it.
