McCain is not only playing the part of FDR in this crisis, he is quoting him. Schmidt and other McCain aides are starting to point out Obama is “cheerleading this crisis” for political points, which is true.
Both sides will take each other to task over ties to lobbyists and CEOs connected to the crisis. Obama’s are worse, but that will not carry us on this issue.
Obama has come up with an array of policy proposals, which are actually less vague than his ordinary rhetoric and McCain must get into a specific plan of some sort, and soon, or Obama will continue to reap the benefit of appearing stronger on the economy to many.
To own this issue a bold new proposal is needed. Like the investment tax credit (see my post immediately preceding this one).
