Go Johnny go...Johnny be good

Bulletin from McCain: Obama will raise taxes and spending:

“We both disagree with President Bush on economic policy,” Mr. McCain said. “The difference is that he thinks taxes have been too low, and I think that spending has been too high.”

“This election comes down to how you want your hard-earned money spent,” Mr. McCain said. Only Republicans, he said, favor policies that can “restore confidence and create economic growth.”
To this line of attack I say, hurray! That's the kind of argument a Republican should make. After eight years of Bushonomics, and several rounds of enormous tax cuts for the wealthy that McCain himself opposed, it's a ridiculously outdated argument. And being a late-stage-decay Republican, McCain has to caricature it by branding Obama a socialist. But even that's an ethical giant step from "Obama, friend of terrorists."
