Say what?
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, June 11, 2008

Who are these guys and why would I want them anywhere near my economy:
McCain's top economic adviser, Doug Holtz-Eakin, blithely supposes that cuts in defense spending could make up for reducing the corporate tax rate from 35% to 25% and the subsequent shrinkage in federal revenues. Get that? The national security candidate wants to cut spending on our national security. Wait until the generals and the admirals hear that.
Now, that's a line in Robert Lenzner's "The Croceus Chronicles" at Forbes, in which he takes both McCain and Obama to task for having no clue about Econ 101 - but I have to say that particular line really caught my eye.

It never fails.

Every time I get more disgusted with Obama and consider voting for McCain because of it, McCain does something to make me say ’why bother?’.

I heard him brag that two of his ad visors were Paul Volcker and Warren Buffet.

Volcker is the jackass who almost destroyed the US economy. And Buffet is a crazed old limousine liberal who wants high estate taxes, but has already made plans to evade the ones we already have.

I read this post the other day and have been thinking about it. After some thought it does not sound so bad:

With continued Iraqi reconciliation and increased security, less burden will be placed on US troops for operations as we move into a support role - based on improvements. With less need for US troops over time we can reduce our presence and monetary outlays ( a reduction in spending on military operations). I don’t think McCain is so naive as to place us in a position where we cannot defend ourselves, he is just recognizing that as the Iraq situation improves we won’t have to spend so much money on construction, military payroll and other operating expenses (food, clothing, weaponry, etc)
