Riiight. He or his campaign manager is going to come out and proclaim his fear.
Are you serious, or just trolling for an argument?
Wait a second. Aren't you Obama Bashers the SAME POSTERS who claimed he was ARROGANT and OVERLY CONFIDENT? NOW HE'S CHICKEN?
WHICH IS IT?
Also the "Lincoln Douglas Debates" weren't as interesting as some think...
In the Lincoln-Douglas debates, held seven times during Abraham Lincoln's losing Senate campaign against Stephen Douglas in Illinois in 1858, a
candidate spoke for an hour, the other for an hour and a half, and the first candidate was allowed a half-hour rebuttal.
THIS SOUNDS HORRIBLE! What about some genuine back and forth.
Let's figure out what McCain has actually proposed...the EXACT specifics please, no BS and then we can discuss whether Obama is "chicken"...
Really...calling a candidate Chicken? Running ads with Brittany Spears and Paris Hilton? With all the crap about McCain being elderly (and I do
believe it is a non-issue), he is letting his campaign be run like a grade school bully. I used to think he was better than that, but I guess
desperation has taken hold.
