McCain shows his true character and leadership

Reacting to polls showing Americans are furious about the economic meltdown, John McCain wants to postpone Friday's debate and is heading back to Washington to involve himself in the bailout process.
Now that's a smart move. By suspending his campaign for a few days, McCain is trying to make himself part of the solution, because right now many Americans see him as part of the problem.
Wednesday, the initial economic meltdown polls rolled in, and they're good news for Barack Obama. [..] A new FOX News/Opinion Dynamics poll says Obama now leads McCain by six points nationwide. Two weeks ago, McCain was ahead by three points. When asked who is better suited to handle the economy, Obama leads by 10 points.
The daily tracking polls by Gallup and Rasmussen are closer. But there's no question the chaos from Wall Street is helping Senator Obama at this point. So McCain is making a bold move. Whether it will work, of course, remains to be seen.
I don't keep score to know which one lies more often. Or misspeaks more often. It is a totally useless waste of time to do so because it really doesn't matter what the score is on that account. If you don't think your man Obama lies at least nearly as much as McCain in order to win votes then my arguing that point with you would also be a waste of time, so pardon me for not being drawn into that one.
As far as his "believing" the economy is sound comment from last week, since I didn't hear it and do not know the context it was spoken in, I cannot honestly comment on it.
If I were a betting man, I would bet that 95% of everyone on here will vote for the candidate of the party they are affiliated with regardless of who is running. That's why I happily stood up for those who complained to BPB about his stance of not voting for Obama. The talk seemed to be that he should vote for him simply because he was the democrat nominee. Well, sorry, I don't think that way.
Well, at least someone comes back with something constructive rather than making an assumption of my political smarts.
I had heard of course that McCain had made this comment, but I have not taken the time to investigate it since I doubt it would make a difference on how I am going to vote. (Right now, honestly, I am undecided between McCain and Barr. I will not under any circumstance vote for Obama because there is too much I don't like about his politics.) Anyway, if you really would like my comment, then yeah, you're gonna have to get me the comment in context. So feel free to do so and I will get back to this topic and gladly comment on it.
Catch ya later Cy.
I think it's fair to say that while all politicians are liars, the question of degree is a valid one
