Why Obama Can't Postpone the Debate

I posted another version of this on another blog, but today I've been thinking that what I posted yesterday says a lot about why Obama can't agree to postpone the debate. Here's the promo for the debate.

The video:

And here's a copy of the email Michelle sent to subscribers on the Obama Website:

[Your Name Here]--

This Friday, we'll reach another milestone in this campaign -- the first debate of the general election, on September 26th at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time.

Millions of Americans will tune in to watch Barack debate John McCain about America's foreign policy and our role in the world.

Barack will share his plan to bring the change we need -- to restore our place in the world, ensure security at home and abroad, and reestablish the United States as the world's economic leader.

This is a great opportunity for you to learn more about the issues. And it's also a great opportunity for you to share Barack's message of change with your friends, family, and neighbors by attending a Debate Watch Party.

Watch the debate with friends and supporters, and talk about how you can get involved in this movement.

I recorded a brief message about these parties. Please take a moment to watch the video and sign up to attend a Debate Watch Party in your community.

Many Americans are still learning about Barack and this movement for change.

They don't know about his plan to restore the middle class, cut taxes for 95 percent of American families, provide health care for every American, achieve energy independence, improve our schools, and responsibly end the war in Iraq.

Many people also don't know that John McCain has voted with George Bush more than 90 percent of the time -- including to continue Bush's failed Iraq policies, not investigating the government response to Katrina, not supporting children's health care, not supporting college benefits for returning veterans, and passing tax cuts for the rich at the expense of the middle class.

This debate is a chance for Americans to hear directly from Barack. And with just a few weeks left before Election Day, it's more important than ever that we bring people together and talk about the issues that matter in our communities.

I hope you'll watch my short message and sign up to attend a Debate Watch Party:

Thank you for all that you're doing,


As you can see, a lot of plans have been made for this debate. Obama plans it would seem to lay out his entire campaign (ad nauseam if you ask me).

And what about this changing in the polls. I just don't see how anyone can trust Obama. I've been vaguely sick at my stomach all day just thinking about an Obama Presidency because the voting public is so easily scammed.
