from jonathan martin:
...Asked this morning on Fox & Friends why polls had shown Obama benefiting from the financial crisis, McCain had a candid response: "Because life isn’t fair... He certainly did nothing for the first few days," McCain argued about his rival's response to the crisis. "I suspended my campaign, took our ads down, came back to Washington, met with the House folks and got on the phone, and also had face to face meetings.”
McCain also went further than he had yesterday in responding to a question about Gwen Ifill serving as the moderator of tonight's veep debate, saying he preferred somebody else.
"Frankly, I wish they had picked a moderator that isn’t writing a book favorable to Barack Obama," McCain said of Ifill, who is examining the rise of the Illinois Democrat and other post-civil rights Let’s face it. But I have to have to have confidence that Gwen Ifill will handle this as the professional journalist that she is.”
“Life isn’t fair, as I mentioned earlier in the program.”
