McSame: Cuts and Runs

September 24th, 2008 | by Windspike |

You may have heard that McSame wants to ditch Friday’s debate to focus on his bit with the economic bail out that will cost the American Taxpayers dearly. Perhaps it’s because he’s protecting his own vital interests? Or, he really doesn’t want to be called to the carpet as one of the people that helped get us into this mess.

Obama has a great point

“It’s my belief that this is exactly the time when the American people need to hear from the person who, in approximately 40 days, will be responsible for dealing with this mess,” Obama said at a news conference in Clearwater, Fla. “It’s going to be part of the president’s job to deal with more than one thing at once.“

Really, if McCain can’t run a campaign and deal with his congressional responsibilities, perhaps he should give up on one or the other. One thing is certain, the President will have to be able to juggle multiple weighty issues at the same time, with no time to cut and run on any one of them.

    Does Barack Hussein Obama believe he’ll take over the country in 40 days if he wins the election? Someone should tell him he doesn’t take office until January 20, 2009 if he wins. While they’re at it, they can also let him know there aren’t fifty seven states in the Union!

    I think McCain’s decision to do his job as a U.S. Senator rather than continue campaigning demonstrates real leadership. Barack Hussein Obama has spent so much time (like the last two years) on the campaign trail, I wonder if he knows which Senate office building he’s in. It’s a shame he doesn’t care enough about the people to set his ambitions aside and put forth his plan for economic recovery now, instead of making us wait to see if he wins the election. He hasn’t even won yet and already he’s worried about his legacy. What an arrogant elitist!

    Obama is clueless. He wants to debate to promote himself just like he did in Europe. McCain is rolling up his sleeves and getting to work Obama is like an employee waiting to be told what to do.
    Somehow that makes me feel a bit uneasy.

    This is exactly the time that the next president of the US should be involved in the most pressing issue of our time. He should be in Washington helping to forge the legislation that will potentially have more effect on his first term than any other issue. The legislations that will have more effect on the people he will govern than any other issue.

    This is why McCain is going to Washington while Obama stays in his hotel boning up for the big debate.

    Barack Obama: “I would rather lose an economy than lose an election.”

    Even Bill Clinton supports McCains desire to put the country ahead of the campaign:

    “ABC News’ Nitya Venkataraman Reports: Former President Bill Clinton defended Sen. John McCain’s request to delay the first presidential debate, saying McCain did it in “good faith” and pushed organizers to reserve time for economy talk during the debate if the Friday plans move forward.”

    snip

    “We know he didn’t do it because he’s afraid because Sen. McCain wanted more debates,” Clinton said, adding that he was “encouraged” by the joint statement from McCain and Sen. Barack Obama.

    “You can put it off a few days the problem is it’s hard to reschedule those things,” Clinton said, “I presume he did that in good faith since I know he wanted — I remember he asked for more debates to go all around the country and so I don’t think we ought to overly parse that.”

    Then there is always the possibility that McSame knows he’s toast. So he figured skipping the debate was the best way to go. Another possibility is that the lobbyist have convinced him to get to Washington to make sure they get a sweet deal. Given his track record on regulation I go with the one of the above.

    Ps It is impressive that he can’t handle a debate and this bill at the same time. Alzheimers? Dementia? Lazy? Unfamiliar with the phone?

    Hmmm… Chris and Windspike are both wrong here.

    Warren Buffet is an adviser and supporter of Obama

    Warren Buffet calls the economic situation “an Economic Pearl Harbor”

    The only thing Obama appears to be doing as an elected US Senator, whose term ends a few years from now, is what he does for best: Run for President. He is not doing anything to solve any crisis. This guy is supported by the 2nd wealthiest man ever, who is calling this an economic Pearl Harbor, and you want to say McCain cuts and runs and speculate on his involvement? Why don’t you ask Bill Clinton why he abolished the Glass-Steagal Act? That is the cause of this mess!!

    Sorry but… who do you liberals think you are?

    Dear Lisa, Man and IM - you guys feel better now after ejaculating all over Obama when this post is about McSame?

    Really, the fundamental question is if McSame cannot run a simple campaign for president and work his real job, how’s he going to be effective as President? It’s going to require much larger capabilities to multi-task than this. If you ask me, McSame is cutting and running because he wants to save himself and his pals from fiscal ruin, not help the individual 60K a year taxpayer.

    Even more important, I can’t think of a better time for two presidential candidates to talk about their position on the economy could you? BTW, the Congress was doing just fine without McSame pulling this stunt to divert attention from his seizing and wallowing campaign.

    My reaction: this is the biggest economic emergency to face the country in a good long time. It is important for Congress to get this right. Obama, Biden and McCain were elected to be their states’ Senators before they elected to run for president/vice-president. They should all three be in Congress debating this thing to get it right. Either this is the biggest economic emergency since the Great Depression and getting this thing right is vitally necessary, as Democrats claim, or it’s just not important enough to disturb presidential politicking as usual. If it’s an emergency, let’s at least pretend to treat it as one.

    Iraq was/is an emergency. Is it treated as such?

    Wouldn’t you like to know, Craig, how Obama and McSame stand as they debate this issue on Friday? The topic was supposed to be the economy. I cannot think of a more important time to have that debate. I for one want to know how these two men differ on the matter of how to solve it. And we won’t be able to get near as clean and unadulterated version of it if they submerge themselves in the congressional committee rooms or on the Senate floor delivering well crafted, propaganda speeches from the floor.

    Have the debate? What’s the harm? Have it in Washington DC that way they can go back to work directly after…but not having it? I think it’s cowardly.
