It has been claimed by the Obama campaign that McCain is "more of the same," implying that McCain's policies are merely an extension of the same policies that Bush has had for the past 8 years. The McCain campaign has labeled him as a maverick reformer who is going to bring about change. Clearly one of them is wrong. I started this thread in the hopes that Republicans could put forth clear examples of McCain's policies (i.e. we shouldn't be talking about Obama) that show how he "isn't more of the same." Something to the effect of: Issue "A" Bush's policy is "X" and McCain's is "Y"; "Y" is clearly different from "X" because of "Z". Most of what I've been hearing from the Republican party seems to reinforce the idea that McCain really isn't that different from the Bush White house, but I think it's only fair to give the Republicans a chance to make their case. I'm hoping a structured format like this will provide an opportunity to focus on the actual issues instead of unproductive political mudslinging. EDIT: I forgot to mention that the intent isn't to debate the merits of the policy, but only whether it's the same or different from Bush.
