Re: Re: McCain Wants Friday Debate Postponed

posted by on September 24 at 12:35 PM


The Obama campaign said Obama had called McCain around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday to propose that they issue a joint statement in support of a package to help fix the economy as soon as possible. McCain called back six hours later and agreed to the idea of the statement, the Obama campaign said. McCain’s statement [suspending his campaign and calling for a postponement of the debate] was issued to the media a few minutes later.

See, this is what Democrats get for trying to be "good" and do the "right thing". The Repugs crap all over you.

Old Guy and Gov. MooseMeat are a real threat to our future.

Maybe it's a hint to Obama to quit supporting a bailout. If he can.

It's a bad sign when a Presidential candidate admits he is unable to multitask.

The Mccain camp is just trying to buy time to figure out a way to spin themselves out of this mess.

If they are smart they will point the blame squarely upon the fucked up policies of the Reagan administration. It is amazing how much Reagan fucked us and all of his chickens have come home to roost. First 9/11 (Bin Laden was among those that Reagan's policies trained in his misguide adventures in Afghanistan, Reagan's lack of action and response to the Marine Barracks explosion in Lebanon which greatly emboldened and shaped the terrorist plans of attack), Saddam Hussien (Reagan Administration's stooge, even though the administration was playing both sides in the Iran Iraq war) and now this a De-regulation disaster. I think dubya has some competition for worst President ever.

NEVER extend a hand of friendship to your opponent when he's just about to cut his own throat.

Dear Senator McCain: I, along with all other true Americans, understand that this decision of yours is the only honorable decision that a war hero such as yourself could possibly arrive at. We true Americans support your campaign's continuing suspension, and we sincerely hope you continue to hold your campaign in suspension for an appropriate length of time, at least until well after the 4th of November.

So, did Socialist McCain have a heart attack ... or a stroke?
