I’m starting to think that the entire election is riding on tonight’s debate. I know how that reads, but if John McCain turns in a mediocre performance, doesn’t substantially address the mortgage crisis and explain just who was in the middle of the whole mess, and doesn’t knock Obama off his game, this thing could […]

I’ve had a persistent thought the past couple days that John McCain has been going easy on Barack Obama and the Congressional Democrats on purpose. I saw McCain’s performance during the debate and it baffled me why he wasn’t more aggressive toward Obama on the bailout question. It’s not as if he didn’t have plenty […]
