Obama, Biden, McCain, and the Deregulation as Disaster Theme

(Cross-posted at Clintonistas for Obama)

The Democratic ticket is hitting John McCain's inadvisable comments in the most recent issue of Contingencies where in an article he wrote in that magazine on page 30 he says:

Opening up the health insurance market to more vigorous nationwide competition, as we have done over the last decade in banking (italics mine), would provide more choices of innovative products less burdened by the worst excesses of state-based regulation.

Yes, thanks and thanks again, to that road to nowhere

(Cross-posted at Clintonistas for Obama)

Sarah Palin, many times and oft falsely has claimed that she said to Congress, "Thanks, but no thanks," in their offer of that bridge to nowhere.  Doubtless we all know now that Governor Palin was for the bridge to nowhere before she was against it before she was for it. Be that as it may be, Palin has taken money from the Federal government to build a road to nowhere.

Each Day a New Beginning

(Cross-posted at Clintonistas at Obama)

You have to admire John McCain's commitment to change.  He does it every day.  If you didn't like his policies yesterday, don't sweat it.  As long as his poll numbers are changing for the worse on one day, you can count on new attitudes to fundamental issues the next day.

Mark Halperin has assembled some pithy quotes from various sources about how Johnny "I was against Government Intervention before I was for It" McCain is recasting himself after the decline of his poll numbers in the wake of the financial crisis.

Updated: Biden Comes Out Slugging While Palin Panned Sunday

Photobucket

The Democratic nominee for vice president has come out slugging in recent days.  A report on Politico suggests that our vice presidential nominee will deliver a major and hard-hitting address today in Michigan.  According to Politico:

While the lines of attack have long been drawn, Biden will assert . . . that a McCain presidency would amount to a third Bush term and will focus, in a detailed, comprehensive and aggressive way, on John McCain's domestic policies and harsh campaign tactics.

If his speech hammers at away at a point he made the other day in Saint Louis, I think it may have some impact.  The St. Louis Dispatch the other day reported that Biden in a Missouri stop hammered away at McCain's proposal to tax your healthcare benefits:

Taxing American workers' health care is not the answer, he said. Under McCain's plan, Biden said, a person earning $50,000 a year, with employer-provided health care worth $12,000 a year, would be subject to income taxes on all $62,000. Now, no taxes are levied on (workers') health care benefits.

McCain has been highlighting his proposed $5,000 a year tax credit to offset some of that tax hike, but Biden said that at least $7,000 would still be subject to the tax.

Yeah, that's change we can believe in, Senator McCain.

Palin Still Wants to Build the Bridge to Nowhere with Earmarks

Ah, yes, this story is an immense fount for all of us who are amazed that McCain actually chose the most suspect candidate for vice president since Dan Quayle darkened American history.

Sarah Palin is a cocky whacko. Period.

(Cross-posted at Clintonistas for Obama and Daily Kos)

Sarah Palin has caught the fancy of many people, and I confess there is something very engaging about her.  But there is something even more frightening about her that outstrips the measure in which she is engaging.
