Stop playing politics. Seriously. Stop.
You were losing ground in the polls because you fail at handling the economy, and you decide that pulling something like this is the best way to make you seem like you’re on top of the situation.
Thank god Obama is calling you out on your shenanigans.
Between this, your outright lies in your ads, and your dirty campaign, I have lost all respect for you and what you stand for. You used to be the politician I respected the most… always spoke his mind, stood for his beliefs and what was right, and never yielded. Now you’re worse than Bush.
Now I hope to god that the nation isn’t so blinded that they won’t see this blatant political move for what it is.
Also, good job Congress for not passing Bush’s irresponsible bailout bill. Now find a way to fix it.
Edit: I see what ur doin thar.
If it’s really so important that you don’t debate this Friday, why didn’t you suggest that the VP debate take place this Friday instead and the debate between you and Obama take place when the VP debate was scheduled for? After all, it’s not like Palin has to be back in Congress
for photo ops to politically benefit from fix the economic mess despite not being on the committee in charge of negotiating the bailout.
Mr. Letterman told his audience that Senator McCain had called him directly on short notice Wednesday, to tell him he had to cancel his appearance.
Mr. Letterman said Mr. McCain had said the economy was “about to crater” which necessitated that he get to Washington right away.
[Mr. Letterman’s] critique reached a high point when he learned that at the very moment Mr. McCain was supposed to be on the couch next to him being interviewed, the senator was at the CBS News center three blocks away in Manhattan, getting ready to be interviewed by the CBS News anchor, Katie Couric.
