Obama backs away from McCain's debate challenge
    #8716632 - 08/02/08 04:55 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

2 hours, 16 minutes ago

AP

WASHINGTON - Democratic candidate Barack Obama on Saturday backed further away from rival John McCain's challenge for a series of Lincoln-Douglas debates, agreeing only to the standard three face-offs in the fall proposed by the Commission on Presidential Debates.



In a letter to the commission, Obama campaign manager David Plouffe said the short period between the last political convention and the first proposed debate made it likely that the commission-sponsored debates would be the only ones in the fall.

"We've committed to the three debates on the table," campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in an interview. "It's likely they will be the three appearances by the candidates this fall."

Asked by The Associated Press if that meant Obama would not agree to any other debates, Psaki said, "We're not saying that."

The first debate planned by the commission is set for Sept. 26 in Oxford, Miss., three weeks after the Republican National Convention concludes Sept. 4. The other presidential debates are set for Oct. 7 and Oct. 15 and the vice presidential debate for Oct. 2.

Plouffe said Rep. Rahm Emanuel of Illinois will be Obama's representative in further discussions with the commission.

COWARD!!!


Every time McCain appears at a town hall he should have an empty stool sitting next to him for Obama.

The flip flopper vs the Bush clone. What a choice!

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” (attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville political philosopher Circa 1835)

Obama's plan.... lay low as f'ing possible.  Maybe if he doesn't have to speak non scripted speeches then no one will notice how outta place he is.  How is he even considered for the Presidency in the first place?  Did the dems really not have anyone else?

I could give a shit less about either candidate, but this cant be the entire story.

no one says "Lets debate"... there have to be some other parameters that arent being talked about.
Debates are pretty rigged... look at the questions Ron Paul got in comparison to the other candidates questions...

Is it possible that Obama didnt want to go to these debates in "McCains home turf"?

Who gives a shit, McCain just backed away from Obama's debate challenge about taxes because Obama didn't want to do 10 other debates in town halls. Equally cowardly as I see it. They should compromise, until then its back to slander slander pander pander.

Is it possible that Obama didnt want to go to these debates in "McCains home turf"?






"In May, when a McCain adviser proposed a series of pre-convention appearances at town hall meetings, Obama said, "I think that's a great idea." In summer stumping on the campaign trail, McCain has often noted that Obama had not followed through and joined him in any events."


"Obama's reversal on town hall debates is part of a play-it-safe strategy he's adopted since claiming the nomination and grabbing a lead in national polls. Advisers to the Illinois senator, speaking on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss strategy, say Obama is reluctant to take chances or give McCain a high-profile stage now that Obama's the front-runner."

"We understand it might be beneath a worldwide celebrity of Barack Obama's magnitude to appear at town hall meetings alongside John McCain and directly answer questions from the American people, but we hope he'll reconsider," spokesman Brian Rogers said.

that's what we need, another republican running for president

Quote:

Recognizing Barr's precarious situation, the Libertarian Party seized on the opportunity to oust one of the federal drug war's most vocal proponents (Barr), and ran TV ads criticizing Barr's opposition to medical marijuana.





oh, wait a second... topple the republican and make him the
libertarian presidential nominee, I'm sure all his opinions have
changed and he's love to see the drugs flow freely and illegal
aliens shipped back to which ever country they came from.

Barr doesnt believe in freedom, he believes in slavery to jesus

In Congress, he also controversially proposed that the Pentagon ban the practice of Wicca in the military.
