Do you think dealing with the economic crisis is a legitimate reason for McCain to postpone participating in the first presidential debate?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 26, 2008
“No. He’s going to have to deal with plenty of economic issues if he becomes president, and he’s not going to be able to put everything on hold to deal with them.”
“Yes. I think the problem is that the Democrats are trying to stop the bailout, which is urgent and necessary, and I think McCain is using the debates as a tool to make sure it gets done.”
“No. It seems like a pretty substantial economic package to be forcing it through without enough discussion. I think the debates should go on as scheduled. He shouldn’t be able to hijack them in order to push the bailout through.”
“No. I just think it’s a strategy to divert attention away from his faltering campaign.”
