Senator McCain has asked to suspend Friday, September 26th debate so he may focus on the economic crisis. Senator Obama, I ask as a democrat and as an American that you not comply with his request.  For weeks he has slandered your good name, and by extension the values of democrats across this nation, with hateful commercials, disingenuous press releases and personal interviews where he said the tenor of this campaign would change if you meet him face to face.  Now when the day is finally upon him he wants to put it off?

I understand that we are in a crisis, I understand that someone as wealthy as John McCain would be very worried about this bail-out not playing out as he would like.  But the occupation of President requires multi-tasking ability.  Why should you, with all your vigor and skill, suspend an event because John McCain can not split his focus adequately?  If he is fit for office he is fit for debate.  The financial melt down of Wall Street is a crisis, no doubt, but it is not so dire that we as Americans and you as a candidate should place a moratorium on other spheres of political life.  No one has died, we aren’t in morning.  It is in no way disrespectful for you and John McCain to stand before the TV cameras and answer questions for the American public, in fact it is just the opposite.

Ultimately though this isn’t about the financial crisis, this is about John McCain’s very bad week, and his desire to put off having to answer questions about so much more than just the Wall Street melt down.  Please Mr. Obama, do not let him weasel out of this debate by pretending this is an issue of appropriateness.  It s not inappropriate to participate in a debate at this time, instead it would be inappropriate not to.
