Barack Obama Chickens Out of Town Hall Debates Against John McCain … What Happened to Debate McCain Any Where, Any Time?
BARACK OBAMA … CHICKEN!!!
Barack Obama is no rock star, he is a studio produced candidate incapable of thinking or responding independently from a pre-rehearsed speech or a teleprompter.
Barack Obama, the Democratic candidate for the President of the United States has chickened out of debating Republican John McCain in town hall style debates. So why is Obama being an coward and ducking McCain? Is Obama afraid that soon to be 72 year old John McCain can out think him and out maneuver him to discuss “We the People’s” questions on the fly without prior knowledge of what may be asked? You mean Barack Obama is afraid to speak and discuss his views if he were President in an off the cuff type of debate because he is afraid of the gaffes and blunders he may stumble into? This is what people want for a President … a candidate who cannot just talk to them without being rehearsed!?!
Democratic candidate Barack Obama on Saturday backed away from rival John McCain’s challenge for a series of joint appearances before the political conventions, agreeing only to the standard three debates in the fall.
In May, when a McCain adviser proposed a series of pre-convention appearances at town hall meetings, Obama said, “I think that’s a great idea.” In summer stumping on the campaign trail, McCain has often noted that Obama had not followed through and joined him in any events.
On Saturday, in a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates, Obama campaign manager David Plouffe said the short period between the last political convention and the first proposed debate made it likely that the commission-sponsored debates would be the only ones in the fall.
“We’ve committed to the three debates on the table,” campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Saturday in an interview. “It’s likely they will be the three appearances by the candidates this fall.”
Asked by The Associated Press if that meant Obama would not agree to any other debates, Psaki said, “We’re not saying that.” She said the McCain campaign had rejected Obama’s proposal for two joint town hall meetings. (Fox News)
Not only is Barack Obama a chicken, he is a LIAR!!! Remember when Barack Obama said he would debate John McCain any where, any time? If you have forgotten, as obviously Obama has, watch it for yourself.
So why is Barack Obama running scared? Is Obama actually afraid that a 71 year old candidate can out perform him in a “live” and unrehearsed debate setting? Is Obama afraid that a “so-called too old” candidate will embarrass him? Obama claims to be a rock star and play to 100’s of thousands of people when he speaks. However, it appears that the Obama rock star is nothing more than a studio produced candidate who is only as good as his rehearsed pre-written speech is. It is obvious that Obama’s campaign thinks their candidate would fail in discussing the issues of “We the people” in an unscripted format. I guess he is too good for the common fold “Town Hall” debate and its “Beneath A Worldwide Celebrity”
The Obama campaign has stated that McCain’s recent ads refuse to discuss the issues and instead are juvenile. So when McCain does put forth the challenge … Obama chickens out. Instead of a free and open debate, Obama runs from the town hall debates challenge issued by McCain.
As Wake Up America states from the McCain campaigns response to Obama’s ducking of the debates,
via Brian Roges, a McCain spokesman, “We understand it might be beneath a worldwide celebrity of Barack Obama’s magnitude to appear at town hall meetings alongside John McCain and directly answer questions from the American people, but we hope he’ll reconsider.”
Wow, looks like Macsmind and Scared Monkeys are on the same page. I just came across this blog post, McCain and Mr. Chicken. They remind us in the video below just how inept Obama really is in a town hall setting.
Of course he won’t debate because he sucks at it. Evidenced by his less than stellar – and sometimes awkward – performances in the primary debates, the last thing “Mr. Chicken” wants is unscripted moments in front of the nation.
How bad is it when he’s off script? Once again Obama Unscripted:
