McCain´s Trick or Treat! Cancelling the VP Debates!

Now we are seeing the REAL REASON McCain is suspending his Campaign. His PLOY: Cancel the VP Debates. How dare McCain utilize this National Economic Crisis for Political Reasons, and to continue to HIDE Palin! Deplorable!!
BREAKING NEWS;
McCain camp to propose postponing VP debate 10:44 AM ET
Biden and Palin are set to debate October 2.
(CNN) — McCain supporter Sen. Lindsey Graham tells CNN the McCain campaign is proposing to the Presidential Debate Commission and the Obama camp that if there's no bailout deal by Friday, the first presidential debate should take the place of the VP debate, currently scheduled for next Thursday, October 2 in St. Louis. In this scenario, the vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin would be rescheduled for a date yet to be determined, and take place in Oxford, Mississippi, currently slated to be the site of the first presidential faceoff this Friday. Graham says the McCain camp is well aware of the position of the Obama campaign and the debate commission that the debate should go on as planned — but both he and another senior McCain adviser insist the Republican nominee will not go to the debate Friday if there's no deal on the bailout.
Couric: I'm just going to ask you one more time - not to belabor the point. Specific examples in his 26 years of pushing for more regulation.
Palin: I'll try to find you some and I'll bring them to ya.
I think the McCain campaign knew the Couric interview would be a disaster as soon as it was done taping and spent much of the day frantically trying to think of a way to push it out of the headlines. The clincher for me is the fact that McCain cancelled his Letterman appearance at the last second and instead sat down for an impromptu interview with, of all people, Katie Couric. The hope was to bump the Palin interview even on the CBS Evening News, which otherwise would have hyped and teased the Palin interview all afternoon and used it to lead the broadcast. Instead, CBS devoted most of its coverage to McCain and played segments of the Palin interview almost as an afterthought. Mission accomplished.
Now the McCain campaign is trying to reschedule the Vice Presidential debate. Undoubtedly they'd like to move it back as far as possible to give Palin more time to prepare. And it wouldn't shock me if they tried to cancel it all together or at least move it to a date where it can only dominate one or two new cycles before being eclipsed by other events (like a presidential debate).

According to your own post, it is possibly to be re-scheduled, not canceled in the term you are using canceled, as in not to happen. You contradict your own diatribe.

Katie Couric is a hack.

The highlight of her career was having a probe in her butt.

Liquid,
Postpone to a date "yet to be determeind" IS Cancel!! There is NO TIME to reschedule. We ALL know that! They are still hiding that rabbit in a hat!

You could have at least commented positively on my creative pix I made for this post. A pix is worth 1K words.

Oh Azz,
Your comment suggests you are very anal retentive.

Actually, my comment was a metaphor for how her career was like. Consider what 'specials' she has done:
Legend to Legend Night: A Celebrity Cavalcade in 1993 (lame)
Everybody's Business: America's Children in 1995 (noble, but full of socialist agenda)
Harry Potter: Behind the Magic in 2001 (seriously)
And then the series she is most noted, and got The Peabody Award for:
Confronting Colon Cancer in 2004.
But which show got the highest ratings?
When she had her colonoscopy -LIVE- in 2000.....

I stand by my statement.

Katie Couric is clownshoes.

Has see ever gone overseas yet? To actually report something?

Dee said...

Katie is a good reporter. Very nice and purdy. Just like Sarah. But Katie is a bit more intelligent!

Katie is a good reporter.

(suck teeth)

YEAH!

patriot said...

What part of the debate would be rescheduled, didn't you get dee?

patriot said...

So since the reschedule date hasn't been decided yet that means it is cancelled forever? How did you manage that stretch of the truth, dee?

patriot said...

No, your pics depict how scared you are of a McCain/Palin win in November, dee. All you pro-illegals are trembling in your boots and I love it!

fla mom,
You are right. We should be sending in our questions to the debate lines. I visited your site and it is a good one. We should focus on the issues and listen to her responses during the debates. I hope they do have the debates. Now that McCain decided he would join the debates tonight, there is no longer an excuse for them to cancel the VP debates next week. I know I will be watching!!
