It Takes Two To Debate

Remember that talking point, about Obama promising to do ten townhall style debates then backing out? Looka this!

NEW YORK (AP) - John McCain wants to delay debate with Obama to focus on economic crisis.

Because John McCain, you know, is running the economy right now and he doesn't want to drop the ball.

Still, it's a perfectly legitimate excuse for Obama to run misleading, vicious attack ads. McCain has said it's okay!

How can you even compare the 2 issues, Piker? Really.

Obama: "I'll debate you anywhere, anytime in 10 TH debates." Then, because it's more important to HIM, changes his mind FOR NO REASON,.

McCain: Is left with only the 3 MANDATORY debates vs BO. Then, due to a potential National CRISIS, decides it MIGHT BE MORE IMPORTANT for AMERICA to try & fix the problem, than debate.

Again, the clear difference between the two. BO: It's all about HIM. McCain: It's about America, first.

What at terrible trait for a possible leader of our Nation, eh?

I'm going to let Obama speak for me on this one.

"Presidents are going to have to deal with more than one thing at a time. It's not necessary for us to think that we can only do one thing and suspend everything else."

McCain is becoming as afraid of speaking in public as Palin is. By election day, we may not even remember their names.

Piker is right. Let them debate, and Obama can vote "Present".


GWK said...

Then why couldn't BO do the TH debates, after he said he would, Piker?

Too hard for him to juggle more than 1 thing at a time, especially with no tele-prompters and no pre-prepared speeches, perhaps?

Danielk said...

I'm not convinced it was Obama who backed out of the Townhall debates.

wamk said...

Then why isn't Obama asking for Townhall style debates now?

Danielk said...

Townhall-style? We can't even get McCain to show up for SCHEDULED NORMAL debates!

GWK said...

Post a better "suited" picture of yourself, Piker. I could at least start taking you more seriously.

I can't believe you are saying it is McCain who backed out of the TH debates. I'm sure you have credible sources for that comment?

Danielk said...

No sources. It's just a suspicion of mine.

The suit stays, pal.
