Here’s the lede from the AP’s latest McCain fluffer, this time from Nedra Pickler …
Barack Obama says John McCain’s plan to balance the budget doesn’t add up. Easy for him to say: It’s not a goal he’s even trying to reach.
Well, easy for McCain too, since he doesn’t either.
Pickler doesn’t mention that McCain doesn’t even say how he’ll do it; he just says he’ll do it. No numbers — No nothing. Every sentient being who’s looked at his spending and tax cut proposals knows he won’t come close to balancing the budget in four years. And within a few hours of making the claim his own economic advisor decided that he was actually going to do it in eight years not four.
