McCain Wants to Delay Debate, Stop Campaigning

For the first time in his political history, John McCain wants to take time out from campaigning and instead focus on the American economy. He even wants to suspend Friday's debate, you know, to put country first. Talk about using a crisis to political advantage. What a schmuck. From MSNBC:
According to the source, McCain wants to create a "political free zone" until a deal is reached on legislation for a $700 billion bailout of the financial industry.
McCain also said he wants President Bush to convene a leadership meeting in Washington. Both he and Obama would attend the session. The dates of the debates, which include three presidential and one vice presidential debate, were announced on November 19.
So now he gets how serious this is. Now he gets that he shouldn't be bringing up partisan politics at a time like this. Now he gets that no one in America thinks he knows what the hell he's doing when it comes to the economy. If the debate goes on, he'll stand there all night and say how wrong he thinks it is. What a stunt.
Of course McCain wants the campaigning to stop. Barack Obama is kicking his ass! Nothing like getting a campaign to stop its message for three full days, if not longer. How can he beat you if he's not allowed to campaign? It worked for Hillary in Florida and Michigan. Maybe McCain thinks he's on to something.

Update:
FOX News is reporting that Presidential Debate Commission is giving a big "F-You" to John McCain and says the debate will go on as scheduled.

Update 2:

Statement from University of Mississippi where the debate is supposed to be held:
The University of Mississippi is going forward with the preparation for the debate. We are ready to host the debate, and we expect the debate to occur as planned.

At present, the University has received no notification of any change in the timing or venue of the debate.

We have been notified by the Commission on Presidential Debates that we are proceeding as scheduled.

We will keep you posted as information becomes available.
