From a reader:
What if this is a rope a dope move by Mac. He says let’s not debate and concentrate on the bailout. The One says no the debate is on. Mac then says well if you insist I think we should have the debate on the economy. The One is forced to agree but the problem with this for him is that he’s been prepping for the foreign policy q’s. He will be even worse than normal off teleprompter. Sound like a good strategy or am I grasping here as the wheels come off Mac’s bus?
