My Take on John McCain Suspending his Campaign to Concentrate on the Bailout; Obama Press Conference on Suspending the Debate (Video)

Yes, true.

He is also asking that the Friday's debate at University of Mississippi is postponed.

My take.

I am glad that John McCain is going to work, really he has not been to the senate in almost a year, if that.

Next, it is magnanimous of McCain to attempt to show gamesmanship, leadership must be the DIVE in his polling numbers, since he is viewed at not understanding the economy.

But in terms of the timing of this move: The only thing that's changed in the last 48 hours is the public polling.

Also, I believe the debate should go on. It is already set. McCain can do BOTH, equally. After the debate, get in Cindy's private jet and go back to Washington, D.C., to work very hard on the BAILOUT.


Oh, the McCain Campaign are also suspending running ads on tv, holding off ad buys, is he in money trouble? Don't have enough to stretch? just sayin'......and here are the McCain Campaign talking points for the media. You decide if this is a stunt.

That is my take.

P.S. The Obama Campaign reached out to the McCain Campaign FIRST, now look at what McCain does. just sayin'


Per, MSNBC, University of Mississippi states the debate GOES ON.

Obama Campaign, looks to move on with debate and campaigning. It is now confirmed, "The Debate is On".

Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) on MSNBC with Norah O'Donnell stating this is "DRAMA". That the debate can and should go on. You can work on both.

Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) on MSNBC with David Shuster stated this is a "STUNT".

Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) "The longest Hail Mary pass in either football or Marys."

Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) "We need leadership; not a campaign photo op."

Per kos, a poll out ALREADY on if the debate should be suspended, and McCain is on the wrong end of the issue.



McCain cancelled on David Letterman and he is mocking him hard and heavy. Make sure to tune in and watch, TONIGHT.
"You don't suspend your campaign. This doesn't smell right. This isn't the way a tested hero behaves." And he joked: "I think someone's putting something in his metamucil."

"He can't run the campaign because the economy is cratering? Fine, put in your second string quarterback, Sara Palin. Where is she?"

"What are you going to do if you're elected and things get tough? Suspend being president? We've got a guy like that now!"
