John McCain told us today it's urgent that he and Obama head to Washington to deal with this "crisis."

If it's so urgent, why isn't McCain on his way to Warshington [sic] right NOW???

Instead, he's waiting a whole day to suspend his campaign.
He's waiting until AFTER he speaks at the Clinton Global Initiative?

If it's so urgent, why isn't he there now?

Why wasn't he there days ago?

As Ben Smith says, the only thing that has changed in the last 2 days is his  numbers have plummeted!

We need to hit McCain hard on this. It's 8 years of the Bush/McCain inability to focus on more than one issue at a time that got us into this mess!  For 8 years, they've focused solely on Iraq.  And look what happened?  Now McCain is making that same mistake again - the man is only capable of dealing with one thing at a time.

Focus on this crisis AND debate on Friday. That's what you have to do as President!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
