The Campaign of Ploys

So, I was watching the news yesterday and they started talking about how McCain wants to postpone Friday's Presidential debate to concentrate on the economy. All I could think to myself was, "another ploy." He knows he can't mess with Barack in a debate and he's trying to buy himself some time to prepare. Personally, I don't think he'll ever be prepared so he might as well get it over with.

Barack has regained the lead, according to polls, and McCain had to do something. I think he tried to blindside Barack when he announced that he will be suspending his campaign. He now feels that both parties should come together in a bipartisan effort to solve our economic problems. He is, after all, the candidate of change and maverick of politics, right?

This is the real deal. If you look at the polls, the economy is the issue Americans are most concerned about. This is why McCain is trying to show his concern on that issue. He'll do anything to try and make himself look like he actually gives a damn.

McCain received a phone call from Obama that he returned six hours later. Obama asked McCain to join him in issuing a joint statement in reference that would let Congress and the Bush administration know where they stood. McCain wanted to meet but Barack felt they should focus on the statement first. They next thing he knew, McCain was on television announcing the suspension of his campaign and saying it is not time for statements, but time for action.

The Palin ploy is losing its effect and they lost their lead in the polls. The next ploy would be to make it look like you're this selfless politician who is putting country first. The reality is you know you won't win the debate and the transparency of your campaign is becoming clearer and clearer by the day.

I've tried to see McCain as an intelligent man of service but it's just not going to happen. I can't help but see him as Bush III. I tried to watch the W's speech last night, but I just couldn't do it. Every time I look at him I get more and more upset that Curious George is running the country. He finally noticed that, "Our economy is in danger," and wants Congress to allow his $700 billion bailout plan to go through.

So, back to McCain who wants to postpone the debate. Bush has invited both candidates to Washington to discuss the economy. This came at the perfect time for McCain. It gives him an excuse. Like Barack said, if you can't multi task you have no business running for President. What is he going to suspend when he's in the oval office and things get rough? This is something that cannot be solved in a day, so the debate should go on.

Ploy, after ploy, after ploy, that's all McCain's campaign is about. His vice presidential candidate has no communication with the press and hasn't done a real interview since we found out about her. She's sitting down with world leaders for photo ops, but won't talk to the press. How do they get away with that? It amazes me.

One of my biggest pet peeves is having my intelligence insulted. The McCain campaign hits that nerve each and every day. They have nothing to say. It's amazing that this man is who the republican party chose to represent them.

Like someone commented on my previous post, "We need Barack more than ever."

I'm mad that Bush is f.... up the economy and the R. are willing to take 4 more years of the same BS. I've worked to hard for my home and my retirment and $$$$$ for them is like running water!!!!!!!!!!

The Republican Party has insulted the intelligence of anybody who truly was intelligent in this country for the past 8 years. What really guals me is their total arrogance. They have to know that they have gone way too far, that
people are on to them now...and yet they still roll out the same old stale plays that have worked so well for them before ,but that aren't working for them now. There is no smoke screen to hide behind now..Game is damn near over.
Excellent Post. Thanks for stopping by today..It's always a pleasure to hear from you.

Very thought-provoking.

I agree, we might have a real winner in Obama. I hear that he's still proceeding with the Townhall, even if McCain doesn't. Real dignified on Barack's behalf.

There is absolutely nothing which I can add concerning Palin and McCain. I think you've summed it up perfectly - nothing but ploys on the part of a man who has the audacity to consider himself as Maverick. I beg to differ.

How do they get away with that? It amazes me.

I wasn't at home yesterday but I taped the debate. There is not one thing about McCain that impresses me in any way. I think Barack did an excellent job.
