Obama Goes After McCain’s Economy Comment

Barack Obama has a new ad in response to John McCain’s comment yesterday that “the fundamentals of our economy are strong.” There is no narration with the ad just headlines from yesterday about Lehman Brothers collapse, the fall of the stock market, and the thousands of daily foreclosures. Then video of John McCain saying, “I think our economy, still, the fundamentals of our economy are strong.” Then in bold headlines the screen reads, “How can John McCain fix our economy if he doesn’t understand it’s broken?” The ad ends with the standard picture of McCain and President Bush that we have gotten so used to seeing in Obama ads. McCain later tried to explain that he was referring to the American worker saying, “what I obviously was saying, and I believe, is the American workers, the most productive and the most innovative — they are the fundamentals of our economy and the strength of it and the reason why we will rebound.” Then McCain added, “We will come back from this crisis, but right now we are the victim of greed, excess and corruption in Wall Street.” Joe Biden wanted to know how the American workers could be strong if they are losing their jobs and homes. At least the candidates got off the pigs and lipstick issue and are now talking about issues that affect us.
