Enough with the straight talking John McCain when it comes to the economy. “Mr. Straight Talk Express” likes to have it both ways. And the problem is when he has it both ways, he has it no way. I would like to see John McCain stand for something.

One way on the economy and economic policy.

One way on immigration reform.

One way on the Supreme Court appointments.

One way on the Iraq War.

It is no wonder the conservatives of the Republican Party distrust him. John McCain stands tall with you until he doesn’t. Is it any wonder he chose Governor Sarah Palin? I don’t like her politics and would never vote for her, but I do know where she stands: right wing, neoconservative, anti-government, laissez faire kind of person. He could learn so much from Sarah Palin.

The latest economic crisis is a particularly difficult position when a candidate has no strong views on the economy or how to fix it. He recently spoke out against bailouts, just hours before the Bush Administration announced a bailout.

Washington (AP): The US economic free fall has played havoc with Republican John McCain’s Presidential campaign, as he tries to distance himself from the unpopular Bush administration and walk away from his own record as a champion of government deregulation.

As the stock market has plummeted, polls show support rising for Democrat Barack Obama in recent days, erasing the bounce McCain enjoyed after the Republican National Convention and his surprise pick of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as the party’s first female Vice-Presidential nominee.

McCain found himself in a particularly difficult spot on Wednesday as the bellwether Dow Jones Industrial Average fell nearly 450 points — slightly more than 4 percent and the second huge loss this week — after an $85 billion government bailout of one of the world’s largest insurance companies, American International Group McCain had vigorously opposed the bailout just hours before it was announced.

John McCain doesn’t get it because he is out of touch not only with Main Street, he is also out of touch with Wall Street. Even a key economic advisor says neither he nor his running mate couldn’t run an American corporation.

The public face of John McCain’s campaign on the economy disappeared from public view yesterday after she queried whether he and his running-mate, Sarah Palin, were capable of leading a large US corporation.

Carly Fiorina, who climbed her way to the top of the corporate ladder as the chief executive officer at the technology giant Hewlett-Packard, made her remarks in a radio interview. Yesterday, her planned television appearances were abruptly canceled. The gaffe was particularly embarrassing because they came from a businesswoman brought in to provide ballast to a candidate who admits that the economy is not his strong point.

Mr McCain has been racing to keep up with the turmoil in the US economy. The Republican candidate was wrong-footed by the $85bn (£47bn) government bailout of AIG, the world’s biggest insurance company, as he was forced to declare his support for an action that only hours earlier he had opposed.

In fairness, she also says the Democratic candidates couldn’t run one either, but it still begs the question: why would Fiorina say such a thing about John McCain. She is expected to trash the opposition. But trashing McCain and his running mate. Well, she knows him better than I do. If he can’t run a major U.S. corporation, according to Fiorina, how can he run the most complex institution in the world.

One thing is clear to me: I do not want John McCain leading this economy. Maybe he will lead this country to a bridge in Alaska going nowhere. Oh, that’s right, they haven’t built it yet. But rest assured, they will. Reading on Walden Bookstore.
