Economic Plans…

Obama gave a speech on his economic plans this morning that consisted of six principles that should guide the legal reforms needed to establish a 21st century regulatory system.

He called JohnMcCains economic plan as something that amounts to little more than watching this crisis happen.

While this is consistent with Senator McCains determination to run for George Bushs third term, it wont help families who are suffering, and it wont help lift our economy out of recession, he said.

Tucker Bounds, McCain campaign spokesman issued the following statement on Mr. Obamas speech:

No amount of rhetoric can hide Senator Obamas clear record of embracing the liberal tax and spend, big government policies that hit hardworking American families at a time when theyre most vulnerable, and are certain to move America backward.

McCain would take over for the current’ administration’s policy of Borrow and Spend, which is even worse, considering that eventually that debt has to be paid back plus interest. So yes, “tax” and spend is a far more responsible way of getting things done.

Hillary Clinton had this to say about John McCain’s economic plans:

Sometimes the phone rings at 3 a.m. in the White House and its an economic crisis, Mrs. Clinton said. And we need a president who is ready and willing to answer that call. But I read Senator McCains plan which does virtually nothing to ease the credit crisis or the housing crisis. The phone is ringing and he would just let it ring and ring.

Good god, woman! That 3AM telephone call routine is starting to spoil. You need some new material and pronto.

BTW:

Does this photo make Barack Obama look bigger than life, or is Bloomberg really that small of a man?
