McCain Blinks…Game of Chicken Fails

The Battle in the Bayou is set for tonight ……..

McCain blinks after Obama calls his bluff. And to think that McCain thought he could get away with this stunt. After is was clearly visible that he was politicizing the campaign suspension and that he had absolutely significant value to the economic crisis that he can claim, he regrettably will go to the debate kicking and screaming. 

I’m breaking out the popcorn for this one. I think this debate will define the election and determine who will go to the White House. I think McCain showed some real bad judgement and fumbling, and grandstanding and it backfired. While Obama played it cool and level headed. The point was simple. Congress already has enough key folks working on this, probably too many, and adding to that number would be more negative than positive, as we’ve recently seen. McCain couldn’t even do anything with own party, so what does he plan to do as president?

What I want to hear tonight is each persons direct beliefs, and plans, and why their plans for major issues facing this country. The economy and regulation, healthcare, education, infrastructure, energy, small business support, taxes, government intrusion into personal lives, the church and state debate, national security, political reform and our judicial system. And I will be posting my beliefs and what should be done on each of these shortly.

Senator John McCain’s campaign said Friday morning that he will attend tonight’s debate with Senator Barack Obama at the University of Mississippi, reversing his earlier call to postpone the debate so he could participate in the Congressional negotiations over the $700 billion bailout plan for financial firms.

Moments after Senator McCain ended several of days of suspense and announced that he would participate in the debate after all, the doors of his campaign plane were opened and the steps were down, as Mr. Obama’s 757 idled nearby on the runway at Ronald Reagan National Airport outside Washington, according to a pool report. Both planes were set to arrive in Memphis on Friday afternoon.

McCain Will Participate in the Debate –
