    “”Obama and McCain both need to come back,” Graham said, adding that he’s concerned about the consequences if Congress fails to reach a deal.”

    The fact that people are doubting McCain’s intentions of trying to get something done to help alleviate this financial crisis is making this political, not the McCain move itself.

    You can inject political grandstanding as the reason behind this move, but it still doesn’t change the fact that it is the right thing to do and at the end of the day, I believe most Americans will agree…..period.

    McCain is acting just like a self-centered three-year-old brat who takes his ball and runs home to mommy because his team is losing. (And what is his wife doing standing three feet behind him everywhere he goes? Is she afraid he'll fall and she's there to catch him? Is this guy a flake or what?)"

    So? Was it the right thing to do, though? That is the real question everybody should be honest and courageous enough to answer. And if you are being totally honest here, you can't help say that this is the right move, no matter what appearance it may have to all of you doubters out there.

    BTW, are you people the same ones who always complained when President Bush was out campaigning and not 'doing his job' when he ran for re-election in 2004? So how then is this any different when we are in the middle of a huge crisis that everyone agrees is extraordinary? Why then would you not expect nor want our Senators to suspend political campaiging for a little while and go back to Washington to help take care of this crisis?

    Letterman was pissed because McCain lied to him. McCain canceled at the last minute because he had to rush to Washington to save the world but went on TV with Katie Couric instead. He tried to clean up the mess Palin left in her studio.”

    No. The truth is Senator McCain had both appearances scheduled I’m sure but given the seriousness of our crisis and the announcement of suspending the campaign, what do you think would have been the appropriate move to take? Probably not too appropriate to appear on Dave Letterman but rather take the serious platform of Katie Couric instead, would be my guess. Duh!

    “How many houses do you have?”
    McCain: “I’ll get back to you.”

    “What has McCain done?”
    Palin: “I’ll get back to you.”

    Yeah! They are ready to lead.
    So Palin is expected to know every single thing about McCain’s record of 26+ years? Do you think Obama knows about Bidens? I am sure Biden knows all three pages of Obama’s but that would be racist of me to point out.

    One thing would have been nice.”

    I agree. It would have been nice if she could have given at least one example but I appreciate her honesty in answering she did not know and would have to research it and get back with the answer. How refreshing. You know what a typcial politician’s answer would have been to that type question.

    Anyway, it just help prepare her for the debates. I guarantee she will have an answer the next time she is asked that question.

    Why is no one asking Sarah palin to describe how she would help McCain go through this type of economic crisis? I beleive they claim she has experience, so lets see her tell us what she might do as VP?

    But Palin told Katie Couric that she is still discussing the economy with McCain, and yet McCain is moving to save the economy without discussing it with his VP?”

    You will get to see her tell us what she will do as VP in the VP debates. I expect she will do fine. But then again I can see you and others clearly want and hope she fails so I don’t think I will be looking for your opinion after the debates. I need to hear from those with open minds, not closed and blinded by selfish agendas.

    McCain has not cast one vote in the Senate since April. Not one vote. On anything. He was AWOL for five months. But now the country needs him to save the day. What a joke”

    Totally irrelavent. What is your point? Nothing in the past five months even remotely comes close to this crisis and you know it. He and Obama better be back in Washington voting on this and working this issue or they both don’t deserve to be President!!

    Dream on. McCain blew it by denying the American people the debate that was promised and and Palin is in hiding.”

    Stop being so close minded and open your eyes. Palin was interviewed just yesterday on CBS news and we still may have the debates.

    You know if you keep thinking negatively, you become negative. I would hope that most of us would choose to keep an open mind and think positive. Life is too short to do otherwise.

    The republicans said last week the economy was sound. This week they’re saying it’s in crisis mode. Which one is it? Quit flip flopping.”

    Again more “spin”, things taken out of context to fit your agenda and simply more “seeing only what you hope and want to be true so bad, rather than dealing with reality”.

    The truth is the fundamentals of our economy are sound and most economists would tell you that. It is our financial market sector that is in turmoil and I don’t care how robust or fundamentally sound an economy is, it cannot withstand that.

    BTW, for those interested in seeking out the truth….here is what McCain actually said in full context on Black Monday………….”You know,” said McCain, “there’s been tremendous turmoil in our financial markets and Wall Street and it is — people are frightened by these events. Our economy, I think, still the fundamentals of our economy are strong. But these are very, very difficult time. And I promise you, we will never put America in this position again. We will clean up Wall Street. We will reform government.”

    and the title of this article is what? “Seeking a boost, McCain changes the game”

    Well that confirms it for me. Our mainstream media is definitely not biased. How insightful of them, not to mention, supernatural, to be able to read McCain’s mind to get his “true intentions” for why he did what he did. Unbelievable.
