The president has become more centrist, which makes him easier to work with, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Thursday.
Speaking with Bloomberg Television a day after a private meeting with President Obama, McCain said he could picture working with Obama on several issues going forward.
“I think there’s a number of issues we could work on together, and I think it’s pretty clear that the president has really pivoted to a much more centrist position, which I think makes it much more for us easier to work with him,” McCain said.
Obama simply must try to appear more centrist, given the dismal true state of the economy. But we saw in his State of the Union address that Obama’s policy prescription — spend! spend! spend! — remains the same.
Did McCain nod off during the speech, maybe?
