Obama… Postpone?: No, Politics More Important Than Recession

As we await Barack Obama’s response to Senator McCain’s request to postpone Friday’s Presidential Debate, we have time to reflect upon Obama’s lack of leadership once again. After the Russian invasion of Georgia, Obama followed (only after a few lame attempts at tackling the subject) meekly in line with McCain’s harsh criticism of Moscow.

It should come as no surprise that McCain is demonstrating Presidential judgement in deciding that a debate is a mere trifle compared with the economic problems facing the country at this time. It should be equally unsurprising that Obama is putting his campaign and his own personal success ahead of the prosperity of the country and of every American. No doubt, he thinks the average American can find refuge in their religion in these tough times.

It is time to demonstrate bipartisanship – Obama has rarely shown this quality compared with McCain who has consistently reached across to the opposition to broker deals that benefit every American.

McCain remains the real hero, a GI Joe turned President; Obama remains an Inaction Man.

    Let the current President handle this situation. McCain has one vote throughout this whole thing. This is the time where people want to hear what these two men will do during this situation. I don’t want either of them to postpone their campaign. I want to hear there solutions and ideas, and I want to hear them debate.

    Yes, shame on Obama for wanting to give the country an opportunity to hear the presidential candidates debate! Shame on him for being willing to both be in the senate during the day on Friday and then participate in the debate at night. He is shameless that guy!

    McCain has a new strategy, to deny media and the American any insight in his thinking. Palin is giving no real interviews, and now McCain won’t debate? Smart move, McCain. The less people know about your policies and are being able to compare them to Obama’s, the greater are your chances to win this election.

    America’s 1st Reaction — Friday’s McCain-Obama Debate Should Still Be Held On Friday, But Perhaps with New Focus: Immediately after John McCain’s announcement at 3 pm ET today, Wednesday 09/24/08, that he was suspending his campaign and seeking to postpone Friday’s scheduled presidential debate, SurveyUSA interviewed 1,000 adults nationwide. Key findings:

    A majority of Americans say the debate should be held on Friday. 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 campaigns should continue. Just 14% say the presidential campaigns should be suspended. If Friday’s debate does not take place, 46% of Americans say that would be bad for America.
