candidates on the economy

both candidates have responded to the economic mess with ads.

First Obama's

now McCain's

Here is a reader's response to both ads from Andrew Sullivan's blog.

Let me get this straight ... Obama's ad is two minutes in which he outlines, in broad strokes, his economic plan and points us to a site where we can read the plan in full. McCain's ad is 30 seconds of tough rhetoric without a word that says what he would do except "reform Wall Street" because he's "taken on tougher guys than this before".

And it's Obama's plan that's all talk?

Seems like Andrew's reader got it right. McCain is just macho posturing while at least Obama is giving broad strokes of what he would propose we do.
