Good for John McCain. He cancelled the Debate Theatre (my God, the sky will fall!) Who needs to hear some staged political crap from people who want to get elected while Rome burns? Obama’s whining as usual because he’s spent so much time cramming for the exam. But Obama was offered to have all the debating he wanted in a town hall atmosphere that couldn’t be scripted or staged and he consistently refused. John McCain wanted Town Hall style one-on-one with Obama since the beginning but Obama doesn’t like that kind of format. Who can blame Obama for that? He’s a loser on substance.
Okay, let’s tell the truth. Much of the American public doesn’t understand the particulars of the financial crisis. Congressmenpersons (sic) are facing elections themselves and are more concerned with looking good than fixing the economy. Congress really doesn’t know how to fix the economy, but they have bonafide geniuses in Paulsen and Bernanke. Of course, they’re Wall Street Demons, not to be trusted! Instead, let’s trust Schumer who wants to partition the economy remedies proposed by parceling it out penny at a time. Or let’s trust Dodd or Barney Franks who got us into this mess by consorting with their investment banker pals in the sub-prime mortgage giveaway.
Now, drastic steps are needed. I don’t like it. You don’t like it. But this needs to be done! Action now, pandering later!
