    Couldn't be doing any worse, and we wouldn't be this far in debt.

    he likely would not have spent a trillion dollars on a stimulus plan that failed.
    He never would have spent all of that time on a healthcare bill during a time when all attention should have been on how to prompt the private sector to create jobs.
    The Harvard Professor would have recieved a summons and the worlkd never would have known or cared about it.
    Spending would have been significantly less as he was never a man that believed in pork.

    SO yes...I believe they would have been a bit better.

    I don't think so and I voted for him. Obama did not win the election we lost it running the wrong two candidates. McCain is am embarrassment to conservatives everywhere.

    He couldn't do worse that is for sure. Honestly I think either better or the same, McCain has some social progressive positions that would lead him toward big govt spending sorta like Bush jr did with his unfunded Medicare Part D plan.

    I'm going to vote same but I just wanted to post that i think he could have possibly done better too.

    A block of cheese would have done better than the Oman.

    McCain ran pretty much with what Bush did and so does Obama so I say no real difference.

    And btw there is no quick fix for our current problems.

    I can't totally disagree with you. I saw no real differences between McCain & Obama. It became more of an American Idol-type Vote. I almost voted Same too but i still think McCain would have been a little better overall. It's a toss-up though.

    I believe with McCain in the White House, small business would not be wondering what thier liabiliuty will be come the implementation of the crux of the healthcare plan; there would be no talk of cap and trade; and there would be less rhetoric about how bad "business owners" are.
    That in itself would have assisted in the recovery of the recession and there would most certainly be a lower unemploymnent number.
