On McCain's debate-ducking tactic
Tags: politics

This is a terrible choice, for numerous reasons:

1) If a "solution" is found, when Americans hear of $X billion being sent to Wall Street, both Republicans and Democrats across the country will be outraged. So, if there's a "solution" found, McCain will be tired to an albatross

2) If debate drags on and the market stabilizes despite this, McCain looks like he's been granstanding

3) The ploy plays into the anti-vetting, anti-media practices that have cut the "Palin bounce" down at the knees

4) In being willing to talk straight to the American people, Obama seems open, honest, and willing to put his ideas on the line, contrasted to McCain

5) The debate-ducking makes it look like McCain may be out of money because he wanted to "suspend" the campaign

6) The hurried, surprised debate-ducking plays into the narrative of McCain as rash in his decisionmaking

Although some are predicting this could benefit McCain, I do not think that is possible. It looks like he's ducking, not addressing, the issue of the economy, which will surely decide the election. Obama looks like a statesman, and all he has to say is "We'd have plenty of time to make the debate with our jets," while McCain reminds everyone of how he's been a deregulating senator since the early 1980s. In fact, it looks like McCain forgot his homework and is asking for an undeserved extension. Watch the poll numbers react accordingly.
