His perspective is not comforting, but it is at least genuine and steeped in reality.

WASHINGTON — David Walker, the outspoken former U.S. comptroller general, gives failing marks to both presidential candidates so far on their proposals to drag the country out of its economic abyss.

Before an intent crowd at the National Press Club, Walker, the no-nonsense one-time certified public accountant for the nation reviewed the various proposals of Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama and played them off the “numbers — you know, that’s the bottom line.”

Primarily because both want to extend major portions of the Bush tax cuts and neither one of them want to pay for it.”

Second, Walker compared how each proposal would affect the bottom line. One would lose more money through tax cuts, both would lose money through tax cuts, and one would lose more money through spending increases, he said.
