Maybe Obama should be smooth about this and propose shifting the debate to Tuesday night, same location and time. And the VP debate could remain on Thursday as scheduled. What would McCain say then? "Well ...... that's not what I really had in .... mind ...."

To expose this for what it really is. He has nothing to lose by doing this.
But he has everything to gain in any scenario.

Because that old coot is trying to fix the problems these dems got us into.

Everyone knows who is going to look like he does not care about us, Obama just proved that he does not.

I say get these guys on a couple of cell phones and let 'em slug it out. If Faux can report the news from around the world over cell phones I think a couple of guys can have a debate.

The only problem the old coot is trying to fix is his dropping poll numbers.

How about we suspend the war in Iraq, and use that money for our financial crisis.

No kidding, didn't Papa Smurf supposedly know this was going to happen via his masterful legislation, from ... 2006, July??? You know, the one that died in committee (I'm just a bill, just an regular bill and I'm sitting here on capitol hill ... ). So hypothetically, he shouldn't need to sweep in ... he should be able to phone all his vast knowledge in AND STILL do a debate .. ta daaaaa!!!
