Obama Says, Lets Debate! McCain Says, I Might Be Late
Mc Cain says suspended and Obama says "ain`t nothing goin to stop my stride!"
I AM 2 for 2 ... in this last week I have made two statements that have validated that I am not only a humorist but that I am either a keen adviser or a fortune teller. I think if things tank I would rather be known as a fortune teller than an adviser. If things get too far out of hand and we revert to cannibalism, I think that advisers would be the first to be served up. Plus they are by far the plumpest ones in this country.
The big news yesterday seems to be that McCain decided to put a hold on his campaign. Which I stated might be a good idea a few days back. But my idea was that they would stop all the song and dance about the things in the campaign that don`t matter . . . MUD SLINGING!
Well McCain did that, he went for the "we must come to the aid of our country", idea and head to Washington and help out. This he did in a very clever way. Barack called McCain, not at 3 a.m., but it was an emergency and Barack had to leave a message; it is 3 a.m. and did you leave your answering machine on?
Then Mr. McCain decided to do this clever trick, he did not call back until 2 p.m.ish and somewhere a few hours before that released his own JOINT statement; Both parties need to help together, with a kicker, and "I think we should postpone the debates and the campaign for that matter."
Barack waited a little and then replied, "We don`t need to walk into Washington together, but we need to address Americans in the debate on Friday as well. Show the Americans we are there for them with answers. " (Of course, I am paraphrasing.)
So you all know this case McCain is pushing about being there when they vote on this bailout. Here is a little info you folks might want it digest. Eat all you can, it is free and the more you do digest the less we will have a stomachache later on.
It seems that all three Senators will be exiting stage left ... McCain, stage right even! On this vote on the bailout anyway. So as much as this drama on the hill is coming to a head, the three Senators won`t be heading to Washington to vote. All that huffin and puffin and no one is stickin around to blown down the HOUSE. Maybe cause it is already laid out flat.
The other suggestion I made was for the President to come out from hiding behind the oval desk and give us a pep talk. The peek a boo speech he gave Americans in the beginning of this debacle only confirmed that we are sure the President did not get the memo in the beginning of his Presidency. You know the one that said that the job was not a 9-5 position. No it is a full time job, it means being on call and you had to answer the phone at 3 a.m.
Anyhow, he took my advice and came back out and talked to us a little bit more. This time he gave us more of what we paid him for, a few more answered questions. But this President or any other President can only do so much. I think what the President was trying to say is we must all get ready to grab a pail and start scoopin.
That is it for now
And whatever you do, if you are in California DON`T text these comments of mine to your friends on the road. Schwarzenegger passed a law stopping folks from sending secret decoder messages to your friends while you drive. It only took a few deaths to get him to take this action. I kinda wish he was the Republican that was in office when this war broke out, we might be out by now . . . 4170 and counting.
