DescriptionWe've heard all the promises, excuses, smart lines, and grotesque misrepresentations. Now it’s time to choose.

On the other is a supply-side Reaganomics disciple who says he is fit to lead because of his knowledge about the economy. A man who says he has a plan but when asked over and over for the specifics can't produce.
