His Fundamentals are Strong

The LA Times‘ Bob Drogin reports that after the supposed four day unilateral campaign suspension Senator McShame has some momentum repairing to do.

Here is some of the response from his GOP base:

But in pressing so publicly for a bailout deal and attaching his imprimatur to it, McCain has alienated some of the GOP conservatives who had cheered his selection of Palin to the ticket.

David Keene, head of the American Conservative Union, said some of McCain’s responses over the last 10 days were “goofy” and “just don’t make a whole lot of sense.”

“There’s a cooling among conservative Republicans toward him since the convention” early this month, Keene added.

At various times, McCain has called for a study commission, advocated firing the chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, proposed a new government agency and refused to back House Republicans who sought to shift more of the bailout cost to banks.

Matt Kibbe, president of the conservative advocacy group FreedomWorks, said he had hoped McCain either would oppose the bailout deal or propose a meaningful alternative.

“His message has been pretty muddled, and the stunt coming back to Washington basically . . . made him just another senator at a table with everyone else,” Kibbe said.
