  1. Perhaps Obama can have Rev. Wright or Bill Ayers fill in for a intimate chat about the past.

    McCain must lead, not follow. Go McCain/Palin.

  2. Perhaps McCain should learn to Multi-Task… If his big brain can only tackle one issue at a time he is not qualified to be President!

    If he can’t even send an eMail maybe he doesn’t even know what “Multi-Tasking” is. Maybe you could explain it to him James

  3. Maybe Sen. Obama should be doing his job in Washington on Friday. You know the one in which he receives a paycheck and benefits. Too bad the “people’s business” also appears to be above his pay grade.

  4. Come on — just think how wonderful it would be to see a gathering of the One’s friends, Ayers, Wright and Oprah. Wow, that would be quite the heehaw.

  5. “…Arizona Senator, John McCain wants to postpone Friday’s debate so that he and Illinois Senator, and Democratic presidential candidate, Barack Obama, can help the Senate focus on the economy….”

    Naturally Obama isn’t interested in anything to directly help this country in an economic crisis…he isn’t grown enough for such a task…personal debate attention comes before country.

    The Senate job should take priority over a debate, or is he joking that he doesn’t want to cancel?

    Senator Obama should have the next four years to grow up and learn to put country first, not a campaign debate.

  6. Perhaps Obama should just send in a present vote on the bail out , and McCain donate a few of his houses to solve the mess , he obviously will not miss them .

    I figure I will insult both of them , it makes me feel part of the whole crowd .

  7. Being the President requires the ability to handle multiple tasks at once. If Senator McCain isn’t capable of that (i.e., working to resolve this financial crisis and debating foreigh policy), then he isn’t qualified to be President.

  8. Elliott, did you actually type that post with a straight face? Obama’s job as a senator has only been an infrequent stopping point and stepping stone on his way to the presidency. He has never viewed his job and obligations as a senator with the commitment and dedication it deserved. How could he when he has spent much of that time campaining for a job he does not even have yet instead of doing the one he does have. Why should it even occur to him to actually start doing it now?

  9. Elliott,

    It wasn’t about “multi-tasking” and you know that. You and I both know good leadership understands the necessity of “showing the flag” during important times of decision.

    After all, isn’t that why both McCain and Obama are spending so much time in “battleground” states? To show the people they care, they actually go to those states and “show the flag” to bolster support.

    Both McCain and Obama needed to be in Washington to “show the flag” of support for working out a bi-partisan solution.

    “Multi-tasking” wasn’t the issue. But you already know that. ;=P
