YOU GUYS, THIS COULD BE EPIC
If you haven't heard yet, John McCain wants this Friday's presidential debate pushed back so that he and Obama can go to Washington to "work on the economy."
Oh, and he would like to also push back the Biden/Palin debate.
But, you know, I can see why.
O HAI, how much money will McCain be costing Ole Miss if he cancels this debate? $5.5 million. Let us pause and reflect on this for a moment. To fix the economy, McCain will cost Batesville, Mississippi 5.5 million dollars.
“I feel like sending a text message to Barack Obama,” said Ruth Schiele-Moore, the manager of a 50-unit hotel in Batesville, half an hour from Oxford, where the debate will be held.
And what how does Senate President Harry Reid feel about the senators coming back to Washington for the weekend to fix the economy?
This is a critical time for our country. While I appreciate that both candidates have signaled their willingness to help, Congress and the Administration have a process in place to reach a solution to this unprecedented financial crisis.
GO HARRY REID. PWN THOSE N00BS.
BUT THE BEST PART? Obama has been called to the doghouse, and will be meeting with President Bush, tomorrow. Probably so Bush can ask him to call off this debate. HOW MUCH MONEY WOULD YOU PAY TO SEE A PRIVATE MEETING BETWEEN THESE TWO MEN? Obama Campaign's post on the subject.
He could so easily "win" Friday's debate by simply showing up. Standing at the podium. Gesturing to the empty one next to him.
It's time for America to decide who it wants to lead this nation. Friday supposed to be a night for debate. An open discourse between Obama and Senator McCain. The topics would center not only on the economy, but each and every issue that is so intricately entwined with it: the on-going wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Abortion. Campaign finance. Civil rights. Military defense. The education of our youth. Taking care of those Americans who live in poverty every day, for whom worrying about their financial situation is not a new concept. Social Security. Immigration.
Becoming president is not a job you slide into. It's not about grandstanding. It's not about laying blame. It's not about picking a vice presidential candidate who will deliver you your party's base, but in reality has nothing to offer the nation.
TAKE THOSE GLOVES OFF.
Seriously, this is like Christmas for the Obama campaign. If they play this right, all he's going to have to do to win this election is giggle.8:58 PM
