2008 Wrap-Up – Skillz

Reminisce on a crazy year that was 2008 with the always clever Skillz. 

McCain Running or Gunning?

McCain may seem like he is pulling a bitch move to some but is he? I personally think McCain may be a lot smarter than he looks. With age comes wisdom they say and this nigga is holding down age like a muthafucka! McCain is suspending his campaign to work with the senate on a way to help America from a massive recession. Now a lot are saying he weak, Obama says a president needs to multitask. If we look past the surface this is a great strategy as I and Ben discussed , McCain is placing all eggs in one basket peep; if he and the senate find a solution to the recession he is the man, if not its over….. or is it? I think just for making the attempt McCain is showing the American people that he cares more than Obama, while Obama is focusing on the presidency, McCain is trying to solve a problem of bigger proportions. So I pose this question what is more important the “Presidency” or “Recession” Politricks is a bitch.

Can’t Keep Running Awaaaaay

Barack Obama rejected John McCain’s call on Wednesday to postpone a debate between the two on Friday, saying Americans wanted to hear what their future leader had to say on the crisis and that a president should be able to multi-task.

McCain announced that he would “suspend” his campaign, pull television advertising, halt fund-raising and return to Washington on Thursday to try to help negotiations for a bail-out plan for Wall Street.

You don’t suspend your campaign. This doesn’t smell right. This isn’t the way a tested hero behaves. I think someone’s putting something in his metamucil. He can’t run the campaign because the economy is cratering? Fine, put in your second string quarterback, Sara Palin. Where is she? What are you going to do if you’re elected and things get tough? Suspend being president? We’ve got a guy like that now!”  –David Letterman on McCain canceling the debate
