Repeat over and over, and people will think you're a geenyus
Speaking in Florida this morning — the very day that two of Wall Street’s major banking institutions collapsed — Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) declared he “still” believes “the fundamentals of our economy are strong.”I can only advert to a recent post of mine here that covers this wonderfully (really ... go read it!):
"As long as the roots are not severed, all is well and all will be well in the garden."Then again, McSame is a person that knows as much as (if not less than) Dubya about economics:
“The issue of economics is not something I’ve understood as well as I should,” McCain said.But if he keeps repeating his tripe about the wonderful economy and the sound root... -- umm, sorry, "fundamentals" -- people might think it insightful...
* * * * *
... and lastly, when it comes to lack of regulations and financial institutions run amok, "McCain" and "Keating" need to be Googled together. Don't believe it when he tells you that he is the person that can step in and fix the "big sh*tpile" (as Atrios refers to it). And why would he? After all, the "fundamentals of our economy are strong"....
Speaking of "repeat over and over", that's exactly what McSame has been doing (some 18 times or so), as ThinkProgress points out.
