Failing to Prepare is Preparing to Fail

I’m hip to John McCain’s game. Everyone else might have thought that slipping the ACORN issue into the debate was just another snipe at Senator Obama’s character but I know the deal. I’m talking about the following quote:

MCCAIN: Yes, real quick. Mr. Ayers, I don’t care about an old washed-up terrorist. But as Senator Clinton said in her debates with you, we need to know the full extent of that relationship.

We need to know the full extent of Senator Obama’s relationship with ACORN, who is now on the verge of maybe perpetrating one of the greatest frauds in voter history in this country, maybe destroying the fabric of democracy. The same front outfit organization that your campaign gave $832,000 for “lighting and site selection.” So all of these things need to be examined, of course.

Preparation is key. Slipping the ACORN statement into the debate was just preparation for November 5th. When the votes are counted and all is said John McCain will blame it all on ACORN. This was his attempt at planting the seed of dissension. Because if Senator Obama becomes president….it’s because ACORN pulled off the biggest sham in the history of American voter history (forget those Grandfather Clauses implemented in the Southern United States in the 1890s to disfranchise Blacks and poor Whites…that’s child’s play).

Of course they need to be examined Senator McCain…of course.

The Keeping It Real Award Goes To…

(Drum Roll)…

Bob Schieffer

The Keeping It Real Award of the Third 2008 Presidential Debate goes to moderater Bob Schieffer for this question:

SCHIEFFER: All right. We’re going to move to another question and the topic is leadership in this campaign. Both of you pledged to take the high road in this campaign yet it has turned very nasty.

SCHIEFFER: Senator Obama, your campaign has used words like “erratic,” “out of touch,” “lie,” “angry,” “losing his bearings” to describe Senator McCain.

Senator McCain, your commercials have included words like “disrespectful,” “dangerous,” “dishonorable,” “he lied.” Your running mate said he “palled around with terrorists.”

Are each of you tonight willing to sit at this table and say to each other’s face what your campaigns and the people in your campaigns have said about each other?

And, Senator McCain, you’re first.

To summarize, Bob Schieffer dared the candidates to “Say it to his face”.

That’s instigating.

That’s keeping it real.
