Just a quick question because I need to go to bed so I can get up for work. Watching John McCain tonight though, I am a little concerned about fiscal conservativism.
John McCain talked about cutting the budget and fighting earmarks. Kudos for that.
At the same time though, he introduced a new $300 BILLION mortagage buyup program to rescue homeowners who cannot pay their mortagages. The government would then renogiate them at lower rates.
This is a huge program and I have to be concerned. He is attacking Obama for proposing $700 BILLION in spending and he's the fiscal conservative for only asking for half as much, for one program?
I realize the campaign is lagging and he needed to do something bold but I think morphing into a Democrat on the stage is going a bit far.
