Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

McCain Stunt Panned by Voters

Survey USA:

Immediately after John McCain’s announcement 3 pm ET today, Wednesday 09/24/08, that he was suspending his campaign and seeking to postpone Friday’s schedule presidential debate, SurveyUSA interviewed 1,000 adults nationwide. Key findings:

A majority of Americans say the debate should be held. Just 10% say the debate should be postponed. A sizable percentage of Americans, 36%, think the focus of the debate should be modified to focus more on the economy. 3 of 4 Americans say the presidential campaign should continue. Just 14% say the presidential campaign should be suspended. If Friday’s debate does not take place 46%, of Americans say that would be bad for America.

Massive Fail from McCain.

  1. Barack is right the debate must go on as planned.. A President must be able to juggle many things at the same time. And Mccain called him out over the debates.A President can not call a time out…Go Brack

  2. John McCain is afraid! He will do terrible because “he knows nothing about the economy”. What a crock, McCain has missed past votes in congress. What the hell, grow a pair and have the debate.

  3. This is another trick from mcCain to dodge the issues. It seams like The mcCain/palin ticket is afraid to be asked questions. The presidental debate is very important. alot of time and money has been put into this debate and it should not be postponed. I think that we have very smart Democrats and republicans taking care of the crisis and McCain is not needed to interfere at this time.

  4. This is no more than really bad, political theater. McClown has missed 80% of votes since fall ’07 – but now the Senate can’t function without his sage advice. phttt!
    What does he have to fear in the debate with the economy, as he said, being so fundamental sound. That’s the assertion from a guy that ranked lower in his class than the current chimp in charge.

  5. I feel bad for McCain. I think he was a good man at one time, that that seems to have been lost in the rush for the white house. Apparently there is nothing McCain will not sell to be president. This includes both integrity (ongoing lies) and judgment (Sarah Palin for VP??? Are you KIDDING ME????) Suspending the campaign is great for McCain – he does not have to show up for the debate (to expose that he simply cannot stand up to Obama), and to hide away Palin, a most unbelievably RIDICULOUS choice for running mate (actually, I think the cashier at Walmart would make a great VP – maybe we’ll see that headline in 4 years – would that be ANY MORE absurd than Palin???

  6. This is typical John McCain behavior. He is afraid of the debate. He talks about victory in Iraq when we troops continue to be killed there. Maybe it is an attempt to delay the VP debate because we know Palin will get eaten alive. She may not blink but she sure does not think! The failure of this economy is the cummulative effect of the lack of governmental oversight by the Bush Administration on just about everything!

  7. This guy’s a joke. Does he really think he can fool voters? I mean, is he really even trying?! I shudder to think that this guy could possible be the president one day…

    I like your blog — keep writing! 🙂
