Johnny McSame used to present himself as someone who took great relish in railing against the absurdity evident in the through the looking-glass reasoning of George W. Bush and his half-witted minions. Then in 2000, the GOP handed his head to him in South Carolina and Johnny decided to venture through the looking glass himself...abandoning all pretense of reason for sycophancy and the promise of power.
Nowhere is Johnny's journey into the GOP twilight zone more evident than in his criticism of Barack Obama's plan make the necessary corrections to the fiscally ahistoric and irresponsible Bush II tax cuts for the wealthy at a time of war-- the very tax cuts which have turned the the robust middle class of the Clinton Administration into the dying and besieged working and middle classes of a dark Bush/McCain 2008 economic reality.
Once the healthy backbone of the American economy, the shrinking middle-class has fallen victim to the McBushenomics redistribution of wealth upward, through which the greatest disparity in wealth between the super-rich and everyone else since Great Depression has been created in less than eight years.
You see, while Johnny now opposes Obama's planned tax cuts for 95% for Americans and a return to Reagan era tax progressivity, in 2001 and 2003 John McCain not only supported what Obama now proposes, but railed loudly against the very same Bush II tax cuts he now seeks to extend and expand. In 2001 Johnny not only thought that Clinton's tax policy was fair, but that the wealthy should bear an even greater tax burden than they did under Wild Bill Clinton, and that the middle class should be the ones targeted to receive tax relief.
You see, McCranky was for Obama/Clinton tax policies, before he was against them and firmly believed that the Obama/Clinton approach was not only fair, but THE ONLY WAY way to assure the long term fiscal health of the country
Today however, John McCain sees the fiscal policies of the Reagan era and the hyper-economic-growth Clinton era as dangerous experiments in socialism (or even...gasp...Communism). Why, he says, should we abandon the wildly successful Bush II economic policies (heck...business at soup kitchens is booming!) in in favor of revisiting the horrors of the Clinton fiscal policies, which yielded unbearably good times and the longest economic expansion in U.S. history. Why would anyone be crazy enough to settle for a return to Clinton's massive Federal Budget Surpluses when it is so clearly the case that continuing Bush's record breaking half-TRILLION DOLLAR DEFICITS are the path to a new American heyday!
Sure Ronald Reagan might have been a communist at heart, after all it is rumored that he tried to join the Communist party (and that they rejected him), but I had no idea that he was visiting a red-menace of his own upon 1980's America by signing into law a capital gains tax of 28% and signing off on the wildly Marxist tax policies of the Reagan/Bush I era!
And Bill Clinton...the 1990's...don't get me started. I think we all remember the sheer hell of rising wages, cheap gas, low inflation, and booming business (Damn you Robert Ruben!!). Thank the gods (you know...gods Greed and Power) for the enlightened approaches of the Bush/McCain era!
I think you'll find that it is possible to find McCain's plans sensible, but only if you are willing to stand with him, and view reality from through the Republican Looking glass. Yes, give yourself to the collective psychosis that characterizes Republican thinking and it all makes sense. Or not.
Now, which pill was it...which one makes the Economy bigger and which one makes it smaller? Red? Blue?
Which one takes us to the reality of a brighter future and which one leads us down the same delusional Bush/McSame Rabbit Hole?
