More Obfuscation from Holtz-Eakin

A reader asked what I thought of this radio interview with McCain's main economic policy adviser:

I don't recommend a listen, since this is a "friendly" interview, and the interviewer doesn't ask press Holtz-Eakin on much. The one interesting moment is when Holtz-Eakin is asked why should taxes be cut in time of war, and the interviewer follows up with, "but he wants to see more American troops in Iraq longer presumably than Senator Obama, right?"

Amazingly, Holtz-Eakin denies the truth of this statement--perhaps the clearest single difference between the candidates. This section starts about minute 5.
