McCain Already


I’m sorry, I have to conclude that McCain is economically illiterate.  Yes, President Reagan wanted to cut spending, and he fought for it despite what some now say, and fought hard, including shutting down the government on occasions and vetoing spending bills.  But his tax cut plan was fundamental to his economic policy.  McCain’s views have changed since then, not Reagan’s.   And why can’t Huckabee address a specific challenge about his tax and spending record without immediately asking Romney to discuss his?  Does this sound like Huckabee is actually proud of his “conservative” record?   I also am a little tired of the whining about “negative attack ads.”  These guys have run for office repeatedly.  They have used these ads and been the target of them in every election cycle.  To pretend that these ads are somehow over-the-top is getting old.
