  • I'm sure it would be, but probably not by a considerable amount. McCain is far too leftist and, therefore, probably would have been spend-happy just like Obama is.

  • I think we would have been in the same amount of debt one way or the other, no matter WHO was elected.

  • Ummmmm, I thought we were in debt when Bush was in office! What difference would it make if it was McCain or Obama. Did you think the new pres is given a magic wand to wave that magically removes any debt and war we had from the last term?

  • A lot of the money Obama has spent was bailing out the banks. If we would have let them fail, we would be paying out through the FDIC so McCain would have still bailed them out. The auto industry bailout was started by Bush so I'm guessing McCain would have continued it. The banks are insolvent and the bubble would have still burst.
