Worse or Worser?

I love headlines like this: "McCain says Obama policies are bad for business."

Can someone explain how McCain's policies, which are exactly like Bush's only more, can make things better if it was Bush's dumbass policies that made this mess to begin with?

Let's see, Obama has pledged to end the Bush administration's tax cuts for upper-income workers and has called for new taxes on oil companies and wealthy individuals, along with $1,000 tax cuts for the middle class tax. McCain wants to make the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy permanent and would not impose taxes on oil companies which have been reaping record profits while the rest of us struggle to pay upwards of $4 a gallon at the pump.

Hmmm...which one do you think might be better for the economy?

Any study of the historical data will show you that Democrats are consistently better for the economy and for small businesses by putting people to work and making sure that working people get their fair share. Republicans are only interested in supporting their tiny little constituency of already very wealthy people who don't actually work for a living, but make money off of those of us who do. Sorry, I don't think you should be rewarded so disproportionately for moving money around instead of actually working for your income.

BTW, McCain was introduced at the event today at which he said this crap by eBay CEO Meg Whitman, which might explain his bizarre pronouncements about how millions of people are supporting themselves through eBay sales. At any rate, I plan to not spend any money on eBay and to let Meg Whitman know that she's an idiot for supporting this clown.
