McCain Runs Away from Blogger Attack on Fiscal Policy

The Wonk Room.

Late last week, the Wonk Room reported a new analysis by the Center for American Progress Action Fund finding that John McCain would recklessly exacerbate the fiscal irresponsibility of the Bush Administration and create the largest deficit in 25 years.

When contacted by Slate magazine for a response to our deficit analysis, the McCain campaign offered this:

Spokesman Brian Rogers dismissed the CAP study as coming from “a left-wing Democratic front group” but did not provide alternative figures. “The fact that they falsely criticize Sen. McCain’s policy proposals is unfortunate, but it’s hardly surprising,” he wrote in an e-mail.

Well, needless to say, we don’t believe our analysis is false, and we are very open to a debate on its merits. Note that you can read our methodology in detail on page 3 of the report.

  1. There is so much information floating around the Internet, that I thought it might be a good idea to put it all in one place, so I created a blog of compiled news stories and videos about McCain and Palin. I understand there is a huge polarization against whatever party a person might be for, and I might not reach the people who really need to see this, but it is my hope that it will help the people who want to know more about McCain and Palin see the "truth" of their actions, lies and distortions.
