First I love it when articles in his OWN state admit there is an Enthusiasm problem.And an Arizona article about how Obama is ahead with young people miles ahead.
And 80% say we are in the Wrong Direction, and as far as the Economy People choose Obama over McCoot 45% to 33% New York Daily News found, and the Bailout is also not favored by most Americans either.
But the Best is the Polls out of Wapo that show 83% think Country is going in Wrong Direction.
and here is a snippet:
"More voters trust Obama to deal with the economy, and he currently has a big edge as the candidate who is more in tune with the economic problems Americans now face. He also has a double-digit advantage on handling the current problems on Wall Street, and as a result, there has been a rise in his overall support. The poll found that, among likely voters, Obama now leads McCain by 52 percent to 43 percent."
2:15PM LA TIMES sent This Out:
Los Angeles Times | September 24, 2008 | 2 p.m. PDT:::
New poll shows Obama with small lead over McCain in presidential race.
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama leads his rival, Republican John
McCain, 49% to 45% among likely voters, a new Times/Bloomberg poll shows.
That lead shrinks to 46% to 44% if all registered voters are counted. The poll has
a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
-- voters believed Obama was more likely than McCain to make substantial changes in Washington, 51% to 27%.
-- on the economy, registered voters preferred Obama’s ideas over McCain’s, 46% to 32%.
-- more people in the poll believed that McCain's Vice Presidential running mate Sarah Palin is not qualified to become president than those who believe sheis qualified. Some 46% said she was not qualified; 41% said she was qualified.
Just got home...and so here is the news>..McCain wants to suspend his campaign ????during this Crisis? and NOT have the Debates ? WTF???? what a giant chicken, I bet he saw the polls and is scared shitless.........And then we learn Bush is planning to Address the nation tonight at 9 PM....( damn right in the middle of Rachel....) ((and my perdictions it wil be 14 minutes of Pissy Petulence and Blame this WHOLE mess on THE People, the Homeowners that have LOST everything....) I will Liveblogg the King's Speech tonight....oye
McCain cancelled his Dave Letterman Appearence today- KEITH OLBERMANN WAS INTERVIEWED INSTEAD ;-)
( so I guess we will all be watching Dave after all...)
Shuster read what Barney Franks Said about McCain 's Manuver " Well, it is either the Longest Hail Mary, or worst Mary ever"...
Lieberman interviewed that " mccain is showing leadership"....I think that McCain looks like a HUGE Chicken and I saw his stupid little speech- and thought WOW...he is FEARMONGERING " oh let Grand- daddy save you...I will suspend my campaign for you"....( what a weasel manuver...) Still Waiting for Obama to come forward...See the thing is Neither of these Canddidates is on any of the Committees that are working on this...and also McCain just DAYS ago Said the "Fundamentals are Stable"...and hey , while he is taking some Time off the Campaign trail- maybe he should answer Some Questions about Rick Davis- read below...
Obama gave presser - Blogged the whole thing in the Comment thread...basically he had spoken to McCain, and last spoke to him at 2 PM and they had decided to issue a Joint Statement...then at 2:30PM McCain came out and gave his little presser-and THAT was a totally different situation...McCain had NOT said anything about postponing the debate or suspending his campaign- Barack said it was mentioned in passing - he did not realize even at 2pm McCain was going to do this.....so as far as he is concerned- the Debate is to go on- it is important that 40 days before the Election THE people need to see the Candidates and hear from them....and then at 5 PM the Debate Commission issued a statement that they indeed intend to still have the Debate....Obama made it clear that he is in contact with DC and all revelant people Paulson and Dems ...So there you have it....McCain is trying to weasel out of the debate...
Bottem Line McCain can't Walk and Chew Gum...
Next we will hear how his dog ate his homework....
