This morning, instead of offering up concrete plans to solve these issues, Senator McCain offered up the oldest Washington stunt in the book:  You pass the buck to a commission to study the problem.  (laughter) Here’s the thing.  This isn’t 9/11.  We know how we got into this mess.  What we need now is leadership that gets us out.  (cheers and applause) I’ll provide it, John McCain won’t, and that’s the choice for Americans in this election. ---Barack Obama 9.16.08

<i>"If elected I promise to vote "No" on any bill that proposes to expand government power for any purpose. I promise to vote "No" on any bill whose net effect does not reduce government spending. I promise to vote "No" on any bill whose net effect does not reduce federal taxes."</i>


That sums it up.  That is why, despite Morgan getting the vapors, CPAC went for Ron Paul.  Remember Mitt Romney was the one who ushered in the painfully expensive and soon to collapse public option in Massachusetts.
