Why does Senator Obama believe itís so important to repeat that idea over and over again?

Because... ummm... he's right?

McCain's economic policy IS a bit of a departure from Bush's -- because it's even more radically insane than the one Bush has used to drive this country to bankruptcy. Basically, he's going to use $18 bn in spending cuts to pay for an additional $300 bn tax cut on top of the $300 or so deficits we're already running, while simultaneously spending EVEN MORE on a godforsaken war that cannot pay any dividends ever, for eternity.

Federal economics are pretty easy to understand, actually, and it doesn't take very long to see that there are really only two priorities that matter very much: ditching the Bush tax cuts, and stopping the war. Do those two things, and only those two things, and we're back in surplus. Do just a tiny bit more, and we can actually afford national health care without much trouble.

But someone needs to stand up and say it. I'm hoping Obama is that somebody. Republican economics are going to destroy this country if pursued for even one more year.

Fuck you for linking to Drudge yet again in the same day. Why shouldn't Slog readers just cut out the middleman, and go right to Rove's mouthpiece (heh) for their "breaking news"?

McCain:Because he knows itís very difficult to get Americans to believe something they know is false.

He's gotta have Alzheimer's to actually believe this after the last 7 years.
