And if he didnt accept, you would be on here saying how Obama doesnt put his country first.... yawn.............


Exactly. Obama has fallen into the political trapdoor. He is in over his head and he looks the part all too well.
It now appears that Obama is being called to Washington after he refused to go. He can't win no matter which way he turns.

This is classical Bush.

Scare the people, Panic the people, Put Fear at the heart of the people. That was his message tonight and that's are the action that he is taking, thats what he has send Paulson and Bernanke to do. The problem is that the tactic hasn't work so far, thats why Congress hasn't budge.

People the people are waking up, if not this bailout would have gotten through already. Republican and Democratic in Congress up for reelection are feeling the heat from their constituents.

If this mess would has happen in a non-election year this bailout would had taken place, no questions asked.

By all accounts Obama should have sealed the deal after the conventions. He should have had way over 50% everywhere with the low public opinion of Bush. It is not the case so you should be asking yourself where did he go wrong or is he just the wrong candidate?

I will step out of my usual form and outline for you the REAL reason McCain is a genius at political moves here.

1) The upcoming debate was all about foreign policy.

2) That subject was out the door with this current crisis. This is bad for McCain good for Obama. If the debate went on as usual, foreign policy would be out the door to the Economy which is Obama's strong point. Obama would effectively get two Economy debates.

3) McCain gets the debate delayed till the bill is passed and he can go on dominating Obama in his strongest debate platform, foreign policy.

4) Obama either has to agree to suspending the debate and follow McCain to Washington looking like a follower not a leader. OR he continues his campaign and gives up the high ground to McCain who is appearing to put country first as usual over his chances at president.

5) No foreign policy debate is better than having two Economy debates in Obama's favor.

Well Obama did say earlier today that he would return to Washington if needed. But he would continue on the campaign trail and insist on Fridays debate. Hmm placing getting elected (a personal gain) Over helping his country right now (putting his country first and showing leadership)

you tell me which looks better taking the initiative and saying your headed back to Washington to do the Job your being paid to do right now. And work with the other members of Congress to pass a bill that will help the economy while at the same time trying to protect the taxpayers.

Or having to be called by the president and invited to the white house before you would Return to Washington to do your job?

My choice. not waiting for the sitting president too call me and invite to the white house.

I'd be getting my BUTT back to Washington to do the job the taxpayers are paying me to do first then pursue my campaign for POTUS

edit to add:
Guess what McCain hit this one out of the park. he now has the high road and Obama looks like the shill in having to be told to get back to Washington to do his JOB

Ha.....to talk about securing a bill to rescue the economy? Yea right probably more like to tell them that the elections will be suspended due to the current National financial emergency or even Global financial emergency. He will probably use the Constitution as his backup on that....the irony of that would be to him " is just a goddamned piece of paper".

As I mentioned at the rally today, the era of greed and irresponsibility on Wall Street and in Washington has led us to a financial crisis as serious as any we have faced since the Great Depression.


source

Obama's own word......a leader in my view wouldn't delegate his job to Pelosi and Reid, he would jump in their and doing the leading especially with the way he describes the crisis. Sad that the debate takes priority over crisis.



We have to act swiftly, but we have to -- we have to also get it right. And that means everyone. Republicans and Democrats, the White House and Congress need to work together to come up with a solution that protects


same source

Kinda hard to work together when he isn't there. Sorry guys..you read how Obama describes this crisis and one has to wonder why the hell he isn't up in Washington pushing his ideas. From my view nobody had to suspend their campaign or even hold a press conference. They should have just took off to Washington and took care of the rehearsed debate at a later date.

Bush was right calling both of them in. I still don't agree with this bailout no matter how they slice it. However, I am a realist. The rich will still be rich but the non-rich people will be severely hurt.

I guess the economy isn't as great as McCain said it was last week. It looks Bush is saving McCain from having to debate Obama. Hopefully there will still be a debate after this is passed and elections will continue as planned.

With the Russian disclosure of news that Bush contacted UK with plans to declare martial law
in the first week in October, it makes sense. They're being briefed in full that the election is off and the details.



Yeeah! That was my exact thoughts! With this debriefing they are not shocked when they hear Bush say it.

I think a lot of us conspiracy theorists were thinking the exact same thing when McCain announced he has suspended his campaign to go back to Washington to "meet" with both parties. They are going back to Washington to "Bow down and bow out" Obama just seems a little more feisty and egotistical than McCain, and was squirming. If the election gets dissolved, say goodbye ATS and any form of free media and goodbye to all of us, because we will take action then.

The sad thing is... we can't organize anything. It's against T and C. How convenient.

Democrats this, Republicans that. Still pushing the two-party system I see, even at your darkest hour. Dear god when will the political bullcrud end?

Actually it's no wonder Bush didn't invite others to the table on Thursday, if he had the likes of Ron Paul or others there he would not be successful in bullying those attending into submitting to his bogus plan to save the economy.

Lol. and again Mccain shows how cowardly he is, he actually needs his "father" to call and tell Obama bully to come to a meeting that only Mccain was attending. What a joke this man is, and seriously there are people who will vote for Mccain, that is beyond my imagination..

Sheeps, that way nothing to see here...

Best of luck

Loke.

I don't know man, its very rugged here. One side thinks the other is a pack of sociopathic, crooked and evil tyrants. The other side thinks the world will swallow
AMERICA if the other is in power.

Seriously... I think America could go into full on civil war like a dime drop.
Monkey style, hatchets, guns and broken bottles. I know I am so perpetually infuriated
I could be convinced with a slight breeze.

There is no logic here bud...We have TWO distinct and opposite sources of information, split along party lines. The absolute truth in America is buried and hidden in plain sight
at the same time. We have a certified CROOK and SOCIOPATH president who looked
like he wanted his mommy tonight on TV while addressing the nation. Half the country wants to keep on this same road like nothing is wrong. CHRIST its a mess.

They want to put a woman in office who should be working in an office among five hundred peers. BLOW up Iran, BLOW up North Korea and send more of our jobs to INDIA.

IF you had that starring you in the eyes everyday how would you frame it?

The question is if President Bush was to cancel the election, would the American people just let it go or fight it? Its quite genius to brief Obama and McCain on it because it allows them to tell the American people how "Its the best thing to do". Bush may be doing this in the hope of getting people to accept such a decision. However we all know that there will be people who will be 100% against a decision to cancel the election, and will try to do something about it. I find it interesting that the information leak from the U.K. predicts Martial Law on the 5th of October. This is the same date, if I recall correctly, that that internet poster predicted for the next big economic disaster. Correct?

This just makes McCain's decision to suspend his campaign have more legitimacy. IT adds to the sense of urgency to have an unprecedented meeting called like this so close to election. Obama looks like he is not on the ball and had to come higtailing it to Washington while McCain knew the grave seriousness of the matter.


Exactly, he looked silly,

Invitation, that's a nice way to put it, more like get here, NOW!

Don't you think the timing of all this is odd?

This is good. It will give Obama a chance to check out his new house. I'm sure there will need to be some redecorating...



This is all political BS on BOTH sides and is annoying at best.

Obama doesn't have the job of Pelosi, Harry Reid or President Bush and should not be expected to do any of those jobs unless elected to do so. Republicans have seemed like they wanted to go along with Bush no matter what he said. Now some to many of them are standing up for what they really believe in and it is the same core of beliefs that any democrat and American citizen has which is Constitutional Law, Bill of Rights, etc.

Are we still the United States of America or are we just customers of the Corporations of the States of America? We have common ground.
