Green Party presidential nominee Cynthia McKinney, fresh off claiming the federal government executed 5000 people during Hurricane Katrina and dumped their bodies in a swamp, sounds like Sen. Barack Obama in claiming that the financial meltdown was caused deregulation and free-market ideology.
Sounds a lot like Sen. Obama when he said:
“Now they said they wanted to let the market run free. But instead they let it run wild. And in the process, they’ve trampled on our American values of fairness and balance and responsibility to one another.”
Both of them — or either one — should explain in detail where free markets went wrong.
