Remember Mr. President?

Liberty -vs- Tyranny

Presidential candidate John McCain in all his befuddled "wisdom" essentially made the same gaffe in 2008 that President Obama recently made. Obama's response to the McCain gaffe in 2008? Let us refresh your memory.

Rational Nation did a post earlier on President Obama's lack of reality recognition. Because of glaring similarities it warrants the redundancy I am allowing myself here.

POLITICO - Republicans are drawing on an unlikely source of inspiration as they pummel President Obama over his comment that the private sector economy is "fine."

Consider, if you will, the similarity between Obama's 2008 ad targeting John McCain's most infamous gaffe -- "the fundamentals of our economy are strong" -- and the web video put out this afternoon. (As I'm writing this, I see that Obama has already backpedaled on his comment in a subsequent White House event.))

The context of the comments and the political mood are different, but the kicker is the same: "How can [McCain/Obama] fix our economy if he doesn't understand it's broken?" And this is only what the RNC could put together on rush notice.

Mr. President, get a clue or you WILL be voted out of office in November.

  1. Actually what McCain did is not the same. The underlying fundamentals were fine. That is the only reason that we have survived the past four years. Unlike Greece and Spain whose were not fundamentally sound.

    Obama is saying the entire private sector is fine. Which is no gaffe on his part. Since he believes that government creates most jobs it is the the government who has not done enough.

  2. actually McCain was right and Obama was wrong, the fundamentals of the economy is fine while the private sector of the economy is very weak. they are two different subjects of discussion. tho i will also admit it would take some one learned in Economics to see the difference.

  3. If by fundamentals you both mean true economic capitalism (which has not exited in America for well over a 100 years) I would agree.

    If you mean what passes as economic capitalism today (think crony and special interest)I must pause and and reference capitalism 101.
