Yesterday I saw a crawl go by saying that an Obama Administration official at some level had been quoted as saying that the fundamentals of the economy are strong. Is this not the same group that laughed at John McCain and told the world that he was out of touch and basically didn't have a clue when it came to economics. So what's different? When John McCain made the statement we had 95.5% employment in the USA. Interest rates were at 6% and while the economy had definitely slowed down no one was in a panic and you could get a decent loan if you needed one with a score of under 650. When the Obama folks made the comment yesterday we were at I think about 93% employment or less. Interest rates are at 6% or lower. You can't get a decent loan today without a score of less than 740 (Fannie Mae).
They were also crying about the trillion dollars we had spent on Iraq and Afghanistan but apparently the 1.5 trillion given away in pay back so far, that's okay.
They were lying about McCain or they're lying now. You pick.
