McCain's shift has come in stages, catching some Republicans by surprise. Speaking with reporters on his on July 9, he cited a need to shore up Social Security. "I cannot tell you what I would do, except to put everything on the table," he said.
"There is nothing that's off the table. I have my positions, and I'll articulate them. But nothing's off the table," McCain said. "I don't want tax increases. But that doesn't mean that anything is off the table."
That comment drew a strong response this week from the Club for Growth, a Washington anti-tax group. McCain's comments, the group said in a letter to the Arizona senator, are "shocking because you have been adamant in your opposition to raising taxes under any circumstances."
" will raise your taxes," McCain said. "I won't."
That should make it difficult for McSame to attack Obama on taxes as he has been doing, but we all know that Republicans suffer from reality deficit syndrome these days, so I wouldn't be surprised if he still attacks Obama for maybe doing what he may do himself.
As I've said here before, McCain is a train wreck.
