The NYT:

Despite signals that Senator John McCain would have new prescriptions for the economic crisis after a weekend of meetings, his campaign said Sunday that Mr. McCain, the Republican presidential nominee, would not have any more proposals this week unless developments call for some.

Josh Marshall notes:

As I frequently tell colleagues when we're working on political stories, you must always keep in mind to some degree that the losing campaign can't help but seem poorly run and erratic. After all, consistency of message strategy comes pretty easily when you're winning. When you're behind, by definition, something's wrong. And so a sputtering campaign often has little choice but to riff from one thing to next hoping that something will work. Even by those very generous standards, though, this is pretty lame.
