McCain's "blunt talk" has a blaring caveat

I was reading in the Detroit News a story written by Ron French, who IMHO, the best investigative writer the paper has - always a good read).   His story talks about McCains "straight talk" on how the manufacturing sector has a bleak future, and how many economists agree with that assessment.  The article reminded me that McCain, if elected, would be just as detremental to Michigan's economic future.  McCain's embrace of increased CAFE standards, as well as his drinking of the global warming kool aid, would just exacerbate  the problem.  He would be no better than the Democrats, claiming to be for the "working man" but pursuing policies that will just shutter more businesses in the United States and ship them off to where it is more feasible.
