The Debate Like a Million Other Bloggers

• noun fluent or persuasive speaking or writing.

— ORIGIN Latin eloquentia, from eloqui ‘speak out’.

John McCain said that Barack Obama was using the eloquence of his words to persuade us. According to my Oxford English dictionary that is what they both were doing and I don't see that as a bad thing. It is what they should both be doing right now to win the hearts and minds of voters.

Here is what I do see and feel free to leave any comments that reasonably discuss this here on this post.

  • Barack Obama wants to try to protect 95% of us from paying more taxes.
  • JohnMcCain wants to reduce taxes on businesses to encourage growth.
I know these are campaign statements made with the best intentions and sometimes we have to vote on the stated goals knowing that the way government works means that the goals may not be met.

My curiosity leads me to ask this-
Are these the same greedy businesses that caused the Wall Street troubles to overflow to Main Street according to John Mcain? Why would we possibly think that these greedy businesses would trickle down their lower tax benefits to us?

Things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmmmm?

  1. Cozy - it does seem that those are each talking points from the campaigns, and a very good point you make in trickle down economics. It didn't work with Bush, and I don't think it will work for McCain.

    And, obvious from debate #3, McCain doesn't has the stamina, after 30 minites!
