What is going on!? We have one candidate suspending his campaign to do his real job, another deciding his "job" is to debate and continue stumping. No deals have been reached on the economic crisis. The WWW is slinging rocks at both sides. The polls are crazy..up and down up and down. He's in the lead, no..wait a minute..the other guy is.
I can't fault John McCain for doing the job we are paying him to do. On the other hand, I understand that the debates are important. A lot of money has gone into preparing for them and they should go on.
What I don't understand is that Barack Obama doesn't want to do the job we are paying him to do. He wants to "talk" about doing it. The debates are important, no doubt about it, but we are not paying him to "talk" about it.
I don't know if McCain's presence on the Hill will make one iota of difference, what I do know is that he made doing his job a priority. In a crisis moment he stopped the stumping and went to work. This is the man's character. Folks on the net and the news say it could backfire on him, he could lose the election because of this. I don't think he cares. I think he cares that Americans are paying him to do a job and it's time to get off of the playground and get to work.
I have to agree with him on that.
