The dishonesty coming out of this campaign is impossible to ignore, even for Fox News. Tucker Bounds says that we must base the truth of what Obama will do on Obama’s record. So by that logic, we must do the same for McCain who was originally against the Bush tax cuts. So even though McCain says he wants to make those tax cuts permanent, following the McCain campaign’s logic here, we must not believe him because he was previously against those cuts. I guess the only thing they can do when confronted with their blatant dishonesty is to concoct some ridiculous, backwards rationale to distract voters away from the truth.
