    This just broke over the wires. McCain was doing a town hall recently and was asked if the middle class were given tax cuts and the upper class were given tax increases, would that be socialism. He said no.

    I've got a video of it right here. For some reason, he looks a lot younger.

    Is this like your claim McCain ask for 300 billion more than the 750 billion?

    wait... he sounds like Obama right there! where is THIS John McCain?

    Show us where he's indicated that the 300 billion he's suggesting to buy up those bad mortgages would come out of the $750 billion already approved.

    That guy in the video is McCain 2000. If the republican party hadn't gotten their handlers all over the guy, we'd actually have a choice... at least on tax issues.

    I'll bet that guy would support Obama over McCain 2008...

    The government buying up bad mortgages is socialism, people.

    So since Obama supports the bail out you admit he is for socialism, thanks.

    Final debate. He said:

    This is different then what he said during his second debate.

    The problem with that is that, in all, the United States has $11 trillion worth of mortgages right now and 10% of them are in serious trouble. That's $1.1 trillion. Not even the entire $750 billion bailout bill could help us with that. John McCain's plan is too risky because we could wind up owing a lot more than $300 billion and it takes money away from banks. The $750 billion should be used to buy up the bad debt banks have.

    Obama's plan, though, deals with the banks and says to the bank, "Ok, this customer owes you $500,000 and he's going to default on his mortgage. Instead of losing $500,000, re-negotiate with the customer and we'll guarantee the loan. We'll pay the difference between the new and the old mortgage."

    Listen, I like Obama, but this plan, this plan is really great and it's a lot smarter than McCain's.

    I would vote for McCain 2000 in a heartbeat. McCain 2000 would turn California and New York red. McCain of 2008 turns Georgia blue.
