McMum’s the Word: McCain Looking for a Way Out of the Debate?

September 24, 2008

“It’s the longest Hail Mary pass in the history of either football or Marys.”   – Rep. Barney Frank

Two days to go, and McCain seems a little shaky in his boots.  Requesting to cancel the debate in order to resolve the financial crisis? It would be one thing if he were actively participating in all phases of the negotiations, but as stated by chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-New York:

“We haven’t heard hide nor hair of Sen. McCain in these negotiations. He has not been involved except for an occasional, unhelpful statement, sort of thrown from far away, and the last thing we need in these delicate negotiations is an injection of presidential politics.”

Why, then, when both parties urgently need to know where he stands on the issue of the bailout, is he- well, bailing out?  Obviously the McCain campaign focus groups are still trying to figure out what he should say, as opposed to having an actual opinion or platform.  Or, this is a total attempt to “psyche-out” Obama, whose rejection to the request was spot on:

“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. It’s going to be part of the president’s job to deal with more than one thing at once.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself.  But, I’ll try:

Senator McCain needs to learn to McMultitask, or forget his presidential bid entirely.
