McCain to Debate Tonight

Here is a statement just released from the McCain campaign:


Statement By McCain Campaign On Negotiations

John McCain's decision to suspend his campaign was made in the hopes that politics could be set aside to address our economic crisis.

In response, Americans saw a familiar spectacle in Washington. At a moment of crisis that threatened the economic security of American families, Washington played the blame game rather than work together to find a solution that would avert a collapse of financial markets without squandering hundreds of billions of taxpayers' money to bailout bankers and brokers who bet their fortunes on unsafe lending practices.

Both parties in both houses of Congress and the administration needed to come together to find a solution that would deserve the trust of the American people. And while there were attempts to do that, much of yesterday was spent fighting over who would get the credit for a deal and who would get the blame for failure. There was no deal or offer yesterday that had a majority of support in Congress. There was no deal yesterday that included adequate protections for the taxpayers. It is not enough to cut deals behind closed doors and then try to force it on the rest of Congress -- especially when it amounts to thousands of dollars for every American family.

The difference between Barack Obama and John McCain was apparent during the White House meeting yesterday where Barack Obama's priority was political posturing in his opening monologue defending the package as it stands. John McCain listened to all sides so he could help focus the debate on finding a bipartisan resolution that is in the interest of taxpayers and homeowners. The Democratic interests stood together in opposition to an agreement that would accommodate additional taxpayer protections.

Senator McCain has spent the morning talking to members of the Administration, members of the Senate, and members of the House. He is optimistic that there has been significant progress toward a bipartisan agreement now that there is a framework for all parties to be represented in negotiations, including Representative Blunt as a designated negotiator for House Republicans. The McCain campaign is resuming all activities and the Senator will travel to the debate this afternoon. Following the debate, he will return to Washington to ensure that all voices and interests are represented in the final agreement, especially those of taxpayers and homeowners.

Update: It will be interesting to see how much of the economy gets discussed at tonight's foreign policy debate. One very good thing that came out of all this is that more people will watch this debate now, which is something I feared would not happen for a Friday night debate.

Update II: In my Townhall column today, which was written when the debate was still in doubt, I talk about the two things I would say over and over again between now and election day if I were John McCain. I hope I hear a lot about them in tonight's debate.

Update III: This is excellent:

Update IV: My email is full of people more angry than I have ever seen at Harry "no one knows what to do" Reid about his ridiculous statement today. Here is Reid's email contact page for those who want to contact his office: http://reid.senate.gov/contact/index.cfm. Here is his phone info: Phone: 202-224-3542 Fax: 202-224-7327 Toll Free for Nevadans: 1-866-SEN-REID (736-7343). Okay, now stop emailing me telling me how mad you are at Harry Reid.

Update V: John Hawkins has a great interview with Jim DeMint on the bailout plan.

hermie:

Well played!

McCain can point to his attempts to be bipartisan and open-minded, while Obama is again the 'go-along/get-along' candidate.

The Dems can point to McCain and accuse him of sabotaging...a very, very bad piece of legislation, while Obama is shown as someone who would rather pass a bad bill than actually come up with something that all parties can agree to.

Once again...leadership and bipartisanship versus follower and mindless partisan.

Larry:

Everyone is now going to say their guy was right and the other one wrong. I believe McCain did the right thing and made the right statement. Obama supporters will say something different. Negotiations in the press, as I believe was going on through the Obama camp, is seldom helpful in a situation like this. But that is what happened, especially Dirty Harry's statements.

Now it is up to the American public, as educated by a less than non-partison media, to make up their minds about the truth.

The fact is that McCain didn't posture until he decided to leave for Oxford. He met behind closed doors and tried to get the House Republicans to designate a negotiator, which was not the case up until McCain did his thing.

Fact is, there was no deal until this morning to even negotiate in good faith, all we really had was posturing and preening and attempts to blame shift. Now there is a deal to negotiate in good faith, apparently.

About time.

They're not the only ones.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said Thursday that Sen. John McCain made a "huge mistake" by even discussing canceling the presidential debate with Sen. Barack Obama.

...

Huckabee said he still backs McCain's candidacy, but said the Arizona senator should not have put his campaign on hold to deal with the financial crisis on Wall Street. He said a president must be prepared to "deal with the unexpected."

"You can't just say, 'World stop for a moment. I'm going to cancel everything,"' Huckabee said.

I didn't expect you to agree, nor did you. You are incapable of seeing things in a nonpartisan fashion and I understand that. If you contrast the statements of Reid and Gregg, you will see a vast difference. But then again, you are incapable of seeing.

Fact: There was no agreement when McCain went to Washington.

Fact: There is now the framework for one.

Fact: Obama wants credit.

Fact: McCain wants credit.

Fact: Both of them going to Washington helped the process.

Fact: McCain was the first invited and the first to go.

Fact: Obama didn't make up his mind until Bush asked him.

There is no functional difference. You can no longer read what the comment says, it is effectively deleted.

Most of your comments remained untouched, even after I devowelled the out-of-line comments.

You deleted my comments, and deleted subsequent comments. Why would I attempt to comment more? "Out-of-line" is apparently synonymous with pointing out your demonstrably false claims.

No thanks, you're a dishonest person who deletes (ok, disemvowels - same difference) comments.

It's a web ad, genius. They rotate, and can be removed from rotation. Tell me, what evidence is even possible to obtain other than a screenshot? Plus, you're wrong in that there is a link to the page the screenshot is of. You can spend some time reloading it to see if the web ad is up, but my guess is the "suspended" McCain campaign has already had it taken out of rotation.

mantis:

Btw, for those not inclined to automatically assume it was the work of evil photoshoppers, here's an interesting tidbit:

Our Work: MSHC Partners worked with the DNC to construct a banner ad campaign to shape and win the post-debate spin. We designed and placed ads that would begin running on the home page of every major news outlet site in the 16 targeted states as soon as the debate finished. These ads were designed to cement the perception that Kerry finished the debate strong and was ready to lead the country.

Results:
We commissioned a study to determine the effectiveness of the ads. The research showed that voters exposed to the ads were more likely to think Kerry won the debate and to associate positive messages with Kerry.

Looks like McCain took a page from Kerry's playbook, and the WSJ put the ad in rotation early. Or evil photoshoppers did it.

DJ Drummond:

Wrong again, mantis. Yes, web ads rotate, but that would mean the ad would come back if you waited long enough. This one never does, and guess what that means ...?

No, you cannot claim that the McCain campaign retracted it, because that's not how it works, boyo. Once on an independent site, that site's webmaster controls the operation, and he's not going to disrupt the operation without at least a day's notice. So, they could pull that ad for tomorrow, but not the same day.

Which also brings up how this guy "found" the ad. Adults, which admittedly leaves out a lot of Liberals, do not camp out at websites and wait for ads to come across the screen. The guy you linked to, would have to have done the following to have honestly "caught" the McCain ad:

1. Someone else - he says - saw the ad "this morning" and notified him about it

2. He goes to the site, waits a while, sees the ad and 'screenshots' it.

3. He has it up on his site by 10:40 AM Eastern time

4. Less than three hours later, the McCain campaign has - magically, I guess - found out they are "caught", contacted the Wall Street Journal and convinced them to pull the ad against their normal practices.

Frankly, you have to have eaten Kerry's 'magic hat' to believe that kind of conspiracy theory.

But then, you guys have done that before ...

I didn't claim it, first of all (first hint: "my guess is"). They certainly could have called the WSJ to notify them of the error though, or someone else did.

Adults, which admittedly leaves out a lot of Liberals, do not camp out at websites and wait for ads to come across the screen.

Do you have any idea how modern ad servers work? "Disrupt operation"?! All it would take is pulling up the ad run in the management app and clicking "Suspend" or some other counterpart. Or if the start time was mistakenly entered or omitted (defaulting to midnight last night), just change that to 8pm EDT.

This is standard operation, not "against their normal practices". Just a few weeks ago, Bloomberg mistakenly ran Steve Jobs's obituary. This happens all the time on news sites. Do you think they left it there for 24 hours out of fear of "disrupting" the site?

What's hilarious is that McCain is objecting to the President's too big, too much money going to those who caused the problem, plan and those on the left keep saying McCain is "McSame" and that he would just be a continuation of the Bush admin. How stupid would someone have to be to buy that? Libs aren't even that stupid. They know exactly how McCain differs from Bush and how he has for years. Those here making a point that Republicans opposed Bush's proposal might be calling attention to the fact that McCain did as well. But they will probably still be making that same lame "McSame" argument because they think Americans are stupid enough to fall for it. I hope they aren't right.

marc:

Chris "CountryWide" Dodd also said this of the deal that never was:

"A visibly irritated Sen. Christopher J. Dodd (D-Conn.), chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, later said on CNN that the meeting was thrown off when Republicans brought up "some new core agreement" that supposedly had been floated by McCain and was being considered by the Treasury Department.

"What this looked like to me was a rescue plan for John McCain," Dodd fumed. "This is a sad day for the country."

However:

Though Sen. Chris Dodd implied that Sen. McCain sandbagged the rest of the negotiators by bringing up alternative proposals, McCain himself did not bring up those proposals, according to four independent sources briefed by four different principals inside the meeting, including two Republicans and two Democrats.

"McCain has not attacked the Paulson deal," said a third Republican who was briefed by McCain direclty. "Unlike the [Democrats] in the [White House] meeting, he didn't raise his voice or cause a ruckus. He is urging all sides to come together."
The elephantine question in the room is... why is this guy anywhere near this process?

Dodd is alledged to have the recipient of an illegal sweetheart loan under the Friends of Angelo scandal that the FBI is currently investigating?

Talking in circles does not get the job done gettin' in and gettin' your hands dirty does... I pray that the future of our country will be put into the hands of a like minded man, a god fearing man.. I pray for those who vote the opposite!
