Economic Bailout

They said they would be working through the weekend. I checked today, Saturday, at 3:00 PM PT.  H.R.2638”, “Making appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2008, and for other purposes”, had passed. No other Nay or Yey votes so far. (more…)

A funny thing happened on the way to the debate. Some guy name Paulson told some other folks that life as we know it was about to come to an end, and pretty soon, with no credit, we’d all be back to the barter system or the gold standard or some darn thing.

Folks was gonna be living hand to mouth and lucky to have a job, and forget livin’ to be old, ‘cause you know, we’d probably starve by then with no 401K. So Paulson told some people called senators all about this, and boy! Was there a stir! So them senators got together and figured a senator’s gotta do, what a senator’s gotta do! You know, the thing they got hired to do in the first place, cogitate and say Yea! Or Nay!

-UPDATE-

Take a trip to the store and stuff changes. The first AP article said, despite the title, that the suspension was Obama’s idea. However, the SFGate now is indicating that Obama wants to have the debate on Friday. See:

Obama rejects McCain’s call to delay debate

(09-24) 16:03 PDT NEW YORK, (AP) —

[The economic crisis and raw politics threatened to derail the first presidential debate as John McCain challenged Barack Obama to delay the Friday forum and join forces to help Washington fix the financial mess. Obama rebuffed his GOP rival, saying the next president needs to “deal with more than one thing at once.”…]

I really can’t tell from this whose idea it was but, see this:

McCain campiagn asks to suspend debate to focus on economy

12:34 PM PDT on Wednesday, September 24, 2008

Associated Press

Republican John McCain said Wednesday he is directing his staff to work with Democrat Barack Obama’s campaign and the presidential debate commission to delay Friday’s debate because of the economic crisis.

I don’t know about you, but a one person debate sounds more like a speech to me. How will this drama play out? I just heard from PocPuma that even Rendell thinks it a good idea to take care of business! And really, can you get any more snarky, then over the “deal with more than one thing at once” comment? They are both senators first after all! Interesting maneuvering going on.

What BostonBoomer said:

Was the debate schedule gamed for Obama too?

Posted on September 23, 2008 by bostonboomer

We now know that the DNC did everything in their power to make sure Barack Obama would be the Democratic nominee for President. Never mind what the voters wanted, this is the year the DNC decided to nominate a black man. Anyone who thought Hillary Clinton was the better candidate was screamed at, called a racist, and told to either stand aside or get out of the Party. The DNC even scheduled their convention so the winner would accept the nomination on the anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech. Accident? I don’t think so.

So, this is an interesting juxtaposition to the recent AP survey on race, the reports on the HIV crisis, Katrina rebuilding, and unemployment.

We surely know by now that McCain will fight and must have a plan as well. What might be his reasoning for agreeing to this location choice? Who would be his audience? (more…)

The USA is currently unable to democratically elect a presidential candidate!

Voting has already begun in places like Virginia, and other states are still trying to register voters, yet we are just getting ready to have our first debate on Friday between McCain and Obama. I turn your attention to this recent article:
