"McCain laments politics as usual"
"The old business as usual." That's John McCain's blunt assessment of the Obama administration, on CNN this morning.
Hence the headline atop Reid Wilson's piece in The Hill. And here's the top:
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Sunday bemoaned what he called politics as usual and criticized President Obama's early Cabinet choices as typical Washington appointees.
"I'm not happy, and most of us aren't at the lack of true bipartisanship in approaching this legislation," McCain said of the stimulus package during an interview on CNN's "State of the Union."
The eight-pound, thousand-page measure is "the old business as usual," McCain said, criticizing the president for going back on his pledges of transparency.
