While the financial infrastructure of the once-great United States of America is in danger of collapsing, presidential hopeful John McCain, in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, still maintains that “the fundamentals of our economy are strong.” Contrast this statement with, according to The Huffington Post:
…the McCain campaign released a television ad that began: "Our economy is in crisis." Moreover, with financial and job markets in disarray, and with Lehman Brothers, the troubled investment bank, filing for bankruptcy, it may not be the wisest political message to tell voters that the fundamentals are a-okay.
It is an oxymoron to claim that “the fundamentals of our economy are strong,” while also trumpeting that “Our economy is in crisis.”
It this straight talk or just more double talk?
