Here’s some analysis:

“I will not support a tax increase,” said McCain, who has said he voted against Bush’s tax cuts because they weren’t coupled with spending restraints. Legislation authorizing those cuts is due to expire in 2011.

In a broad-ranging interview, McCain, 70, also said he’d confer with Democrats to fix the Social Security program and dismissed concerns that he is too old for the White House.

McCain, who also ran for president in 2000, has been critical of the Bush administration’s handling of the war in Iraq and of what he calls “out of control” government spending.

Douglas Holtz-Eakin, who coordinates McCain’s team of economic advisers, says the candidate will highlight his record as a reformer in the Republican primary. Holtz-Eakin says McCain “stands uniquely among Republican candidates for having identified the importance of controlling spending at the federal level.” Read more.

On Fox, McCain also said climate change is a “big issue.”

McCain seems to be buying into the global warming nonsense. What a shame.
