Bono at Clinton Global Initiative, Speaks on Moral Bankruptcy. McCain There Tomorrow
I am not qualified to comment on the interventions that have been put forth. I can assume these people know what they’re doing. But is is extraordinary to me that you can find 700 billion dollars to save Wall Sreet and the entire G8 cant find 25 billion dollars to save 25 thousand child who die every day of preventable treatable diseases and hunger. That is mad. Bankruptcy is a serious business. And we all know people who have lost their jobs this week, I do anyway. But this is moral bankruptcy.
This country we sit is in a great country, and it’s a great country because it’s not just a country. It’s an idea and that idea is supposed to be contagious and it is bound up in the inalienable rights of men and women and children, equal in the eyes of God.
GOP candidate John McCain, who feels the campaign should be halted until the financial crisis is resolved, is due to speak tomorrow at at 8am the CGI; the Campaign Silo at www.shadowproof.wpengine.com has an immediate report.
"It’s my belief that this is exactly the time when the American people need to hear from the person who in approximately 40 days will be responsible for dealing with this mess.
Earlier in the day, before he wanted to call them off, McCain said that Obama "was able to, I think, with his eloquence inspire a great number of Americans. So these are going to be tough debates."
