How transparent is John McCain's attempt to postpone the debate? Over the last week, he has demonstrated that he can not coherently discuss the economic crisis and has seen his poll numbers go down.
And how slimy is McCain's political maneuvering today? Obama called McCain this morning to suggest they come out with a joint statement supporting a bipartisan solution to the economic crisis. McCain returned his call this afternoon when they agreed to the joint statement - to be developed collaboratively between the two campaigns. Minutes later, McCain is on TV issuing a call to suspend the campaigns and challenging Obama to agree and to postpone the debates. Is this country first or is this manipulating a serious situation to stem a political slide? My head spins with how the Republicans can accuse the other side of EXACTLY what they are doing.
