McCain Just Gave the Election to Obama
I'm sure the motivation for McCain 'suspending' the campaign was born out of that Katrina photo of him and Bush holding his giant birthday cake as people died in New Orleans. But this economy mess (which has been building for years - thanks to Phil Gramm
) isn't a hurricane and just makes McCain look like he's running away from Obama and the debate at hand. Letterman's heavy handed response
to his canceling the guest appearance (while McCain's on live with Couric) just cemented how out of touch this Republican campaign is. This is just another example in a series of bad choices from McCain, and they just keep getting worse and more pronounced. From, "the economy is strong, all the negativity is all in your head"
- to one week later - "things are such a mess financially, we have to suspend the campaign"
. Wow. Just wow. So, the bottom line? Like him or not... get used to saying President Obama for the next four years.
