We Are Not Stupid, John

"Battling George W. Bush for the GOP presidential nomination in 2000, John McCain lashed out at the Texas governor, denouncing his proposed tax cuts as a giveaway to the rich." Huh? Did I read that right? Did the writer of this statement in the Washington Post make a mistake? No, that statement is exactly right. The same John McCain who made a serious run at the presidency in 2000 by advocating the position that he now bases his entire campaign against claims to be a man of principle Let me ask; what principle is involved in such a quantum shift? If you ask me, the principle involved is mudslinging mixed with quite a bit of deceit. What McCain currently claims is that what he strongly advocated eight years ago is now welfare, taking from the rich and giving to the poor, socialism, any other name he can think up to try to discredit Obama in the short time left before election day. Such a turnabout could only be predicated upon one belief; that the people of the United States are stupid. I wonder if McCain has given any thought as to why he is behind in the polls?
