Sen. Barack Obama is having a great time trying to pass off our financial crisis as an economic crisis. They are related, sure, but they aren’t the same thing. And McCain is right; the economy is strong.
And so, it is more than just interesting to note that when Obama’s criticism gives way to prescriptions, has reverts to the well-worn calls for “change” and the special brand of “leadership” he keeps saying only he can provide.
It’s very telling, then, that his ideas for “jumpstarting” the economy look an awful lot like the old, familiar tax and spend.
