Maybe someone should tell McCain that a commission doesn't solve a crisis, they study something in the past to identify why it happened and how to fix it. We're in an on-going battle to keep our economy afloat, fiddling around with a commission isn't the answer. It may be the single worst idea of his campaign so far, and that's no small feat considering the plethora of bad ideas (or no ideas) he's put forward.
Later in the day at a campaign rally in Tampa, McCain told the crowd:
Of course McCain has long been a supporter of deregulation. A decade ago he tried unsuccessfully to push through a moratorium on all federal regulations. This March, he told the Wall Street Journal:
"I'm always for less regulation. But I am aware of the view that there is a need for government oversight. But I am fundamentally a deregulator."
So which one is it - a deregulator or for regulations to clean up Wall Street. McCain's never ending pendulum swing on his own position is making me dizzy.
