    Default McCain (almost) Postponed Friday's Debate (Sept 26)

    McCain Heads to Washington

    I'm curious why he seems unable to multitask? I have been anxiously waiting for this debate for weeks and now it's canceled?

    What do you think?

    Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-New York, said McCain's move was "just weird."
    Hah. Yeah, I guess he's going for the patriotic "country first" impression but he just comes across as an increasingly eccentric desperate old man. Still, erratic behavior in a major politician always keeps things interesting.
    No offense.

    Lame.

    I think that even the most avid McCain supporter can see through his explanation that now is the time to "put politics aside." He must be a terrible debater.

    If you can't fix the economy and run a campaign at the same time, then I don't want you as President. I guess they want to keep his workload low so his heart doesn't stop.

    They are still putting Palin through Political Science 101, she's still cramming before the test. Palin vs. Biden, such an unfair match lol.

    McCain has a mixed history with debates. He has decent comedic timing, but Obama will no doubt give him little opening to use it.


    The debates will be what helps Obama/Biden brake away and win this thing.

    Maybe he's going senile.

    Well he certainly looks fucked up.

    So is it on or what? Obama wants to (not surprisingly) move forward.

    There may yet still be a debate if this bill gets passed on Friday, and most likely it will. Many key politicians seem to think this is the last chance to save an economic meltdown, and if this REALLY does need to be done this week to avoid disaster, Paulson and Bernanke will likely concede some on issues such as the lack of oversight in the current bill.

    However, I now see that McCain wants to replace the VP debate next week with the presidential debate scheduled this week. While I really, really doubt this is the reason McCain is suspending the campaign, he is certainly trying to milk this as much to his advantage as he can.

    If there was ever a time when the Republicans needed a terrorist attack on the US, it's now.

    McCain is a bad orator, and a so-so debater. He excels in the town hall meeting/public forum Q&A events.

    Y'know, I'm not so sure that this is an entirely bad thing.

    You know what this does? This gives us a chance to see which way he'll go, economically speaking. I don't find it to bve a coincidence that this suspension happens the day after a couple of conservative pundits bitched about the fact that neither McCain nor Obama had any plans to go back and vote in this issue, because they were too busy campaigning.

    Personally, I think that the fundraising and commercials can continue with their VP candidates running the show, but both of them had better get their asses back to Washington and try to fix this in a way that they'll be proud to have their names associated with.
