Wait! Hold the presses... McCain didn't suspend his campaign. He just came out with a new smear ad. Apparently, he's doing other 'more important' things rather than taking care of the problems that face this country. Hypocrites, can we count on your vote this year? McCain himself has indirectly said, that your poll is hogwash and the smear talk express must go on...

Man, oh, man... do I hope the VP debate goes on... Palin takes even 'rehearsed questions' to an all time low. This is gong to be a massacre, lol.

His campaign was NOT suspended at all - everything is still moving forward. He just "suspended" himself from going to the debate.

Both candidates need to fully understand this.....

As has been stated before both candidates economic plans only make things worse.... 3.5 and 5 trillion worse... They both need to focus heavily on the economy if we haven't already fallen over the cliff we are tip toes over it.

McCain needs to take care of ALL of his business. He's asking people to make him president but doesn't want to give them two hours worth of information to help them decide.

Ah, but then, by your argument, you don't take care of your job and family at the same time, no? You go to your job, then come home and take care of your family.


I'm just sayin'.

Now McCain is going to debate? Last I checked the country was not saved. Seems he actually screwed things up. Question to the 43 people who voted FOR McCain going to DC - is he a traitor? Afterall, he has come for the debates at the cost of the nation.

you are correct, the country is still not saved. this is the time to stop all of the partisan bickering and tell our representatives that they work for us. i have previously posted the senate contact numbers and email.

here is the house of representatives phone number page to start bombarding them with refusal to accept this bailout.
Office of the Clerk
here is the email page for the house of representatives:
www.house.gov/writerep/

the american people better quit taking sides and stop this bill before they screw over the taxpayers of both parties.
