It seems like Obama has used every excuse to avoid having to debate his opponents throughout this campaign. He dodged Hillary Clinton's proposal for a Lincoln Douglas style debade a couple months ago and recently he has refused to joain McCain in a town hall debate. Why does Obama refuse to debate? because he is weak on the issues. all he can talk about is 'chance' and 'hope' in vague terms, but when it comes to specifics he has no substance. Hopefully the American people won't be fooled and see Obama and his baby momma for the Marxist liberals that they are.
