Pelosi: “We have to be able to do a couple of things at once. That’s what leadership requires.”
Barney Frank: “It’s the longest Hail Mary pass in the history of either football or Marys.”
Sen. Schumer: “Just weird…”
Harry Reid: Stay away. “We need leadership; not a campaign photo op.”
David Letterman: “You don’t suspend your campaign. This doesn’t smell right. This isn’t the way a tested hero behaves. I think someone’s putting something in his Metamucil.”
The McCain campaign is also using this as an excuse to cancel the vice presidential debates. That Palin isn’t ready for prime time has become apparent to all. She still hasn’t had a real press conference, they tossed out the press yesterday at one event, and a new NBC/WSJ poll says 49% think she’s unqualified to be president.
The McCain campaign may end up being the most inept ever, even worse than John Kerry’s. We could be witnessing the self-destruction of a presidential campaign.
Cynthia McKinney ready to step in for McCain at Friday’s debate
WASHINGTON, DC — Green Party presidential nominee Cynthia McKinney has offered to debate Barack Obama if John McCain’s opts out at this Friday’s presidential debate in Oxford, Mississippi, following the Republican nominee’s announcement that he is seeking a delay of the event.
“If John McCain wants to bow out, I’m willing to step in and take his podium on Friday,” said Cynthia McKinney.
“The financial meltdown won’t come any closer to a resolution because a presidential debate is postponed. Now is the best time for Americans to see how prepared their leaders are to handle emergencies, how they introduce fresh ideas and solutions for national problems, and whether they’re willing to stand up for the American people instead of Wall Street moguls and corporate interests,” Ms. McKinney added.
