Remember those Reagan ads in '84?

If you do, this McCain ad will strike a memory chord. But it's also fresh.

That's my opinion. What's yours?

Based on the ads I have seen in this blog John McCain would spend his advertising telling us:

With tongue in cheek, Obama thinks he is a Messiah (The One), and McCain mocks religion.

The Pump ad is a fantasy about the cost of gas.

The "Important Democrats" ad shows them saying wonderful things about John McCain.

And now this tax ad warns us that Obama is going to tax us into economic ruin. That is pretty simple because it ignores the causes of our complex economic situation. KISS?

I say, what is John McCain promising to do? Must we depend on Obama ads to tell us about McCain's plan?

This, from his official web site, apparently, is McCain's plan for individual income tax:
Keep Tax Rates Low: John McCain will keep the top tax rate at 35 percent, maintain the 15 percent rates on dividends and capital gains, and phase-out the Alternative Minimum Tax.

What does that mean? Wouldn't you like to know? I don't really know but I'll take a stab:

The AMT has already expired, except that Congress keeps reviving it every year. Who gets tax relief by phasing out the AMT? Well, those with an adjusted annual income over 400 thousand dollars.

Oh. No wonder McCain spends his energy on anti-Obama ads. Sigh. Never mind.
