The mortgage mess brings a rambling, unfocused answer from McCain, that manages to work in everything from Wall Street penalties to a town in Norway.
He sees spending cuts as his in with the conservative vote – which it might well be.
He sounds sort of like an old man tonight... oh wait.
McCain clearly tries to run out the clock on the economic questions.
It's the Chuck Norris factor.
Seems to me Romney is very deftly reaching out to conservatives by BRINGING UP cutting entitlement programs. Remember when candidates dreaded that question being asked? How times have changed ...
John McCain looks like he has Attention Deficiet Disorder. Then other times looks like he is going to take a nap.
I can not imagine this guy running our country – seriously.
I heard someone say today it doesn't matter if McCain wins he will be dead by the next election!
I cant believe that McCain just claimed that the Republicans lost power in 2006 because of spending, not the war in Iraq. Man, I wish the Democrats were involved in this debate so that someone would actually challenge him on that unbelievable statement.
Romney is spot on with immigration.
Well, he had no clue last time about a Presidential Working Group, and he doesn't know squat about economics anyway (see Ron Paul as the on-stage expert there), so this isn't surprising. Besides, he can't even balance his own campaign books, running up $4.5M in debt and a $1.6M hole overall after deducting cash on hand.
How did McCain get so much of the Florida vote when it came to economy issues? This guy has no idea. Romney just makes sense when talking about this stuff. Why didn't voters get this?
Totally agree. Said the same thing..His lack of breath on this issue of the economy is frightening!...
Gotcha flip-flop #2 McCain-Kennedy
Senator McCain clearly doesn't understand economic policy. The knee-jerk Republican response is always about cutting taxes. How far can we go with the policy?
I don't understand what the hell McCain is talking about. I don't think he knows much about this issue. He's Rambling.
It all seems to be about Romney and McCain. They're dueling like Clinton and Obama. Give each potential nominee time with the media to stress his opinion! And about McCain, all of his remarks seem to be in Klingon.
McCain just does not come across as the individual prepared to make major economic decisions. I think his history points in a direction that does not mirror his recent claims.
I live in FL and I can tell you McCain got by with his respect from the older voters for being a Vet and with a 5 to 1hispanic vote over romney because of ihs cuban support and his horrible shamnesty act! Wake up america!
McCain never answers a straight question.....I was a foot soldier, I did this etc....and that is the problem, he was part of it. Esp. all the questions Mitt gave him that he did not answer and then Mitt answer every one of McCain's questions.....what an old timer!
Somewhere in America, a bunch of Romney staffers are lined up at a computer ...
Mccain stated he voted for the tax cuts Twice, He didn't , He is still tap dancing Around Immigration, He says secure the border first, but fails to expain him self after that, He would give Amnesty to all Illegals , He supports La Raza, but fails to vote for any bill that Supports Veterans.
McCain doesn't know what he is talking about concerning the housing mess.....he is soooooooooooo out of step with what is going on here on main street!!!!
Hillary will tear John McCain up Matt if he gets to debate with her. She will make him answer those questions – just like with Obama now – just throwing words out is not enough.
Dear God McCain answer a question already!
He has said several things tonight that when he gets done I just want someone to say..."DID ANYONE UNDERSTAND THAT??" I can't believe this guy is the front runner. I m not a republican but If I were....talk about depressing.....
Why the hell does anderson cooper skip over ron paul on every single question. this is ridiculous. CNN has the elections so slanted towards JUST the front runners. it makes me sick
Mike hukabee, would make a great President. It's too bad he doesn't get the focus like McCain and Romney.
