It’s the day after the first debate. Both Presidential candidates are back out on the campaign trail stumping for votes and talking about how they will lead America. Oh wait, that’s a lie. Only SENATOR Barack Obama was back out on the campaign trail today while SENATOR John McCain was in Washington working on the bailout legislation. SENATOR Joe Biden, SENATOR Obama’s running mate, was also out campaigning today.
Why is this so important to note? Because voters are being told today that Senator McCain’s performance last night was condescending and arrogant and that he even talked down to Senator Obama during the debate. The reason they are being told this by the pundits and press is because Senator McCain answered every question with specifics and highlighted his experience and accomplishment in those answers. Senator Obama repeated the same argument about Bush and McCain whenever he had the chance and gave virtually no specifics in answers to the questions. Yet on the day after the debate, when Congress is in session to work on what could be the most vital piece of legislation in decades, Senator Obama chose to take the day off (again) from his duties as Senator and do what he has done for most of his political career, campaign, instead of gaining the experience McCain talks about regularly. Today, Senator McCain went back to work and chose to let his actions speak louder than his words once again.
Senator Obama answered that abortion was above his paygade while at the Saddleback forum. Perhaps his actions during this crisis also show that the economy is also above his paygrade.
