Noteworthy Economic Pundit Rips McCain Economic Plan

Clive Crook the former deputy editor of The Economist and Washington columnist for the Financial Times has written a devastating piece about John McCain's economic plan. Here a taste.
"He promises to lower taxes, and to balance the budget in four years, but he will not say where he would cut spending. In area after area, McCain has failed to say exactly, or even approximately, what he wants to happen. He will reform this and improve that, he insists, but he rarely says how. Perhaps to make up for his silence, on the issues where he feels he has a political advantage -- gas prices and offshore drilling, for instance -- he has brazenly substituted simple-minded populism for honest economics."
