And so today, after much speculation about whether McCain would announce bold new economic proposals, here is what happened:
- John McCain gave a speech saying, “These are hard times, my friends. Our economy is in crisis. Financial markets are collapsing. Credit is drying up. Your savings are in danger and your retirement is at risk. Jobs are disappearing.”
- Barack Obama gave a speech outlining specific policy proposals on aiding the economy.
Now, if you were an independent voter concerned about your retirement, your job security, and your mortgage, what candidate would attract you?
You do not need to be high priced political consultant (Schmidt, Davis, etc) to realize that.
