Surprise! Barack Obama thinks the first presidential debate should go on, suggesting the next inhabitant of the White House should be able to multitask. What a novel thought, considering the last 7 and a half years of single mindedness. Obama sets the record straight, AP:
Barack Obama said "it's more important than ever" that the country hear from its next president. It's my belief that this is exactly the time when the American people need to hear from the person who, in approximately 40 days, will be responsible for dealing with this mess," Obama said at a news conference in Clearwater, Fla. "It's going to be part of the president's job to deal with more than one thing at once."
I thought this was rather revealing:
McCain senior adviser Steve Schmidt said that if an agreement is not reached by Monday, "there is potential for an economic calamity the likes of which has not been seen since, potentially, the Great Depression."
Thank you. The irony isn't lost on most of us. So we should elect another Republican and party member that believes in the very ideology that brought about this crisis?
