OTM Dems Debate Party and Obama Fundraiser


John McCain may not show up for tomorrow night’s debate, but the Over the Mountain Democrats will be there.  At least in spirit.  Or maybe spirits.  Join the OTM Dems at Rojo for cold beer and big screen viewing of the debate whatever-you-call-it-when-only-one-candidate-bothers-to-show-up-to-talk-to-the-American-people.  Admission is a $50 check to the Obama campaign; RSVP here.

If you cough up the bucks and go to Rojo tomorrow night, you’ll get in free for next week’s Biden-Palin debate party at Matthew’s Bar & Grill.  That’s assuming McCain’s handlers allow Palin to appear.

    If it turns out to be a one-candidate appearance on Friday night, that might just be par for the course for this campaign. I seem to recall that McCain asked Obama to appear in several town hall meetings with him and Obama was AWOL on those occassions. Both candidates seem to be playing a game of “campaign chicken” on the road to the White House.

    Don, it’s one thing to turn down the offer up front. It’s another to back out at the last minute and conveniently postpone the VP debate as well.

    Kathy, I think both candidates are equally at fault for not taking every opportunity to let voters hear their positions.

    Considering the current situation, if there is a debate, I think the subject of it should be changed from foreign affairs to the economic crisis. But I doubt that either one of them has a clue about what to do about it because they’ve never studied, nor do they understand, economics. Maybe they could ask Texas Congressman Ron Paul to stand in for both of them because he is recognized by members of congress on both sides of the aisle as one of the most knowlegeable persons in Washington on the subject of economics.
