Anyone who thinks the economy is still strong after the beating the financial industry has taken in just the last month shouldn't be allowed to run for any public office, let alone President. Ironically, the McCain campaign released a TV ad this morning that began: "Our economy is in crisis."
So which one is it - we're in crisis or we're strong? McCain contradicts himself with his own ad. That's astounding double speak even for him.
Former fed chairman Alan Greespan said on Sunday that the market was the worst he had ever witnessed and predicted another major bank would close soon. I'm more inclined to believe him then this guy:
Of course Palin hasn't weighed in at all on the economy today and the media has been kept a football field's length away from her just to make sure she doesn't say anything ridiculous.
