Hmmm….John McCain is putting his campaign on hold so that he can deal with the financial crisis (you know the one that he and his advisors have been poo-poo-ing until…you know…pretty much today). Nice try buddy. He wants to reschedule this week’s debate with Barry…to be held instead of the VP debate. Interesting timing since Barry’s been moving up in the polls lately – largely as a result of the financial crisis.
I’m thinking that the President of the US needs to be able to multitask. There’s a strong possibility that more than one area will need his attention – even when there’s a crisis.
Second of all, McCain has consistently voted and spoken out in favor of many of the root causes of this crisis – especially deregulation of banks. I’m not so sure I want him heavily involved in figuring out how to fix said crisis as a result.
Third of all – go Barry! He pointed out that in real life, you can’t just put something “on hold” when you’re the President. Nice to have a Dem running who’s not letting them push him around and then apologizing (yes, I’m talking to you Kerry).
Then there’s the lies. And the press is getting pissed off and finally starting to talk about them, like here.. And Andrew Sullivan has a running list of documented SarahP lies. Here’s his list of the first twelve. And of course, you can always go to the nonpartisan site Factcheck.org to see if what both campaigns are claiming is actually, you know…true.
And Sarah Palin is not allowed to take questions from the press, has had two “interviews” – not sure Sean Hannity qualifies as an interview, but let’s give him the benefit of the doubt (sigh) and now the campaign wants to reschedule the VP debate for some time in the future – What? November 5? Let this woman out and let us see who she is and how she handles tough situations. She could be the VP of a 72 year old President who has serious health risks. Stop hiding her!
And best of all, listen to Campbell Brown talking about sexism and SarahP…the McCain campaign’s sexism towards her:
I’m fired up this morning.
