Obama Says "Stay Calm", McCain Blames Obama

Two very different initial reactions to the failure of the bailout plan in the Congress. Obama had this to say:

There are going to be some bumps and trials and tribulations and ups and down before we get this rescue package done. It is important for the American public and for the markets to say calm because things are never smooth in congress and to understand that it will get done. That we are going to make sure an emergency package is put together because it is required for us to stabilize the markets and to make sure that when a small business-person wakes up tomorrow morning, he will be able to make payroll.
McCain's campaign had this to say:
From the minute John McCain suspended his campaign and arrived in Washington to address this crisis, he was attacked by the Democratic leadership: Senators Obama and Reid, Speaker Pelosi and others. Their partisan attacks were an effort to gain political advantage during a national economic crisis. By doing so, they put at risk the homes, livelihoods and savings of millions of American families.Barack Obama failed to lead, phoned it in, attacked John McCain, and refused to even say if he supported the final bill.
Of course, it was McCain's campaign on Sunday touting that he had gotten the House Republicans in line and was going to be responsible for delivering the votes. Doesn't this mean he gets the blame?
