Magic Proposals

Marc Ambinder reports the McCain campaign is less than pleased about Obama’s recent ad tagging McCain a “Big Spender”, specifically calling Obama a liar for failing to name a single McCain “spending item” and of course ignoring the fact that a tax cut is if not in name, at least in fact, government spending. Anyway, the most amusing part of the response, as Ambinder notes, is this:

JOHN MCCAIN HAS MADE NO SPECIFIC SOCIAL SECURITY REFORM PROPOSAL, SO IT HAS NO COST

Sophistry of this caliber is impressive, even for the McCain campaign. Anyway, with the elderly vote always a key demographic, look for questions on McCain’s proposal. He has supported privitiazation, which is exceedingly unpopular among the elderly, and even more so in light of recent stock market woes.

    Actually McCain has supported voluntary opt-in privatization of Social Security. Nobody has to my knowledge endorsed mandatory privatization.
