“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.

THOMAS SOWELL ARTICLE CIRCA 2000 ON MCCAIN FIGHTING BUSH TAX CUTS

Here's an article from 2000 reporting McLame saying he didn't support Bush's tax cuts because it favored "the rich". It's no AP article either...It's Thomas Sowell:

{SNIP} Then there is the McCain approach to taxes. Here again he buys into the liberal notion that it is somehow wrong to cut taxes across the board, for fear that "the wealthy" will benefit. Are taxes to be cut because they are too high or are tax cuts to be used to redistribute income?{SNIP}
