Remember a few weeks ago when the $h*t really hit the fan regarding the Wall Street meltdown? Remember how Obamuh got all, uh, mocking and condescending: “You see, Senator McCain just doesn’t get it – he doesn’t get that this crisis on Wall Street hit Main Street a long time ago. That’s why his first response to the greatest fiscal meltdown in generations was to say that the ‘fundamentals of the economy are strong,’ and why he didn’t say the words “middle-class” once in an entire 90-minute debate.” You remember that, right? I seem to remember many of the more liberal bloggers getting their self-righteous panties in a wad because, geez, how clueless is John McCain to say such a thing? The sky is falling, for chrissakes.
Well, it took a while, but it looks like BO finally gets what McCain was saying. Unfortunately, Barry O picked today of all days, when the Dow drop 777 points, to say this:
In case you can’t stomach eight seconds of Barry, here’s what he says: “After this immediate problem, we’ve got the long-term fundamentals that will really make sure this economy grows.” Um, isn’t that exactly the same principle that you excoriated McCain for touting?
Oh, I am so looking forward to checking out my favorite lefty blogs to hear their outrage. Because they’re all so progressive and open minded, I’m sure they’ll be raking Obama over the coals for his obvious stupidity in avowing free market principles. I am going to bask in smug glory as they eat crow and admit that, yes, their candidate holds a nearly identical view as McCain when it comes to the basics of our economy.
