McCain and the Economy

More

Brendan Nyhan calls me out for too much psychologizing in my last post on John McCain. And it's true. I don't like the guy. He's not the worst politician on the planet, but he's pretty bad, and I'm pretty sure he's the most overrated politician so thinking about him aggravates me. But these would be my sober-minded, non-psychic points about John McCain and the economy:

All of this leads me to conclude that John McCain would not govern very well on economic policy issues, and would fare poorly in a campaign that focused heavily on economic problems.
