Anyone remember McCain saying “the fundamentals of the economy are strong?” This is dumber.
The following are actual headlines from the past 48 hours:
And these two are from last Friday:
Obviously the economy could be doing worse. It could be the Great Depression, we could still be at 10 percent unemployment instead of 8.2 percent (the longest we’ve had 8 percent or higher unemployment since the Depression, by the way), a huge asteroid could have hit the East Coast, etc. etc.
But “it could be worse” is nowhere near “the private sector is doing fine.”
Oh, and this is what Barack Obama has to say in 2008 about John McCain’s “fundamentals of economy” comment.
