Jeanne Cummings over at The Politico:

John McCainWith John McCain poised to win the Republican nomination, Democrats are already gathering ammunition to use against him in the general election.In more than a few instances, the best fodder has been provided by the candidate himself.

A case in point: As the economy was rising late last year as a major issue for voters, McCain in New Hampshire delivered this grenade, with its pin still in it: “The issue of economics is not something I’ve understood as well as I should,” he said. “I’ve got Greenspan’s book.”

Those are not the only words that will come back to haunt him in November.

This is news? I mean, we’ve been saying for months that this was going to occur… Did anyone really think that the buttock licking McCain’s been doing with Democrats was really going to advantage him in any way? He now stands between the Democrats and power, and like any other blockage in their path to power, he’s about to find out that respect they’ve been showing him was all an act. So much for the dream of ‘bipartisanship’.
