Watching the Debate

McCain keeps complaining about millions of dollars, and Obama keeps coming back with billions.  I think this is a signature problem of McCain’s.  He doesn’t appear to have any overriding proposals for revamping government; instead he betrays a small-minded obsession with minor spending scandals.

Sure, I much prefer McCain’s plan to save us hundreds of millions of dollars to Obama’s plan to increase taxes by billions, but it makes for mismatched rhetoric.
