("Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." .Ralph Waldo Emerson)
I heard McCain say on TV during the time those cuts were first passed that he was against the Bush tax cuts because they were tax cuts for the rich. I heard that with my own ears right from his mouth. The reason I remember that so vividly is because that is the moment when I knew McCain was a liberal and was using liberal talking points against tax cuts. Before that day, I did not know much about McCain’s beliefs. I have also heard him say that he does not really know much about economics and whether supply side economics is good policy or not. He can spin this all he wants, but I know what I heard. It was not a quote or second hand or even a sound bite. It was a full interview.

Why doesn't McCain get it all over with and just put his "good friend" Teddy Kennedy on his grubby ticket now?
Can you say President Hillary Clinton?
The way I have it figured, McCain and Hillary have a total of 88 YEARS suckling at the public teat.
Anyone with a REAL job (private sector) is...f*****...
I hate McCain...I hate the Clintons..and country is going straight to hell.

This goes right up there with saying Putin is the president of Germany.

(The Status Quo Sucks!)
“In 2001, McCain said the tax cuts favored the wealthy at the expense of the middle class. In 2003, he said there should be no tax cuts until the Iraq war costs were known.”
“I disagreed when we had tax cuts without spending restraint,” 2008
I don’t see the big deal here. What he is saying now fits with what he said in 2003- spending restraint because of the war costs. So right there AP is full of crap.
You have to go all the way back to 2001 to get close to a supposed disparity and even then concern for the middle class does not exclude concern about government spending.
If anything what this all shows is consistent concern for the economy. Something the anti-McCain press tries to make us believe McCain knows nothing about.
Which is it? Either McCain thinks about the economy or he doesn’t.
Actually, when AP has to bend-over backwards like this to attack McCain during a close race, it punches holes in the constant charges that the media is pumping him up.
If AP wanted to do a story about a man that changed his position, I think Romney is the expert on that.

(WAA! Bush is not conservative! - Let's vote for FLIP Romney!!)
What would happen if Romney put out an ad showing a clip of McCain saying what he originally said along with what he said in last night’s debate? The MSM would probably accuse Romney of being mean-spirited, but McCain should not be allowed to get away with misrepresenting the facts.

I am thunderstruck that the AP would run a negative McCain article. This must mean that the MSM wants the Republican race to drag out longer.
