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.

What do you think Obama or Hillary are going to do with those statements once McCain says that he favors keeping the Bush tax cuts?
That's right, they're going to run Ads using just those words and poof; one of the few good issues the GOP has working for it in this election is gone.
McCain's nomination takes ever potential strong issue but the war off the table for the Republicans.
