The more things ‘change’, the more they stay the same

8/20/08         MCCAIN: “I still believe the fundamentals of our economy are strong. We’ve got terribly big challenges now, whether it be housing or employment or so many of the other — health care. It’s very, very tough times. It’s very tough. But we’re still the most innovative, the most productive, the greatest exporter, the greatest importer.”

 

11/03/08       OBAMA: “It’s not that I think John McCain doesn’t care what’s going on in the lives of most Americans. I just think [he] doesn’t know…..Why else would he say, today, of all days — just a few hours ago — that the fundamentals of the economy are still strong? Senator — what economy are you talking about?”

 

3/14/09         In a dramatic, and some might say cynical, change in message, President Barack Obama said yesterday that the fundamentals of the nation’s economy are, “sound.” The comments come just weeks after the president was consistently warning that the economy faced a “catastrophe” if Congress did not act to pass his $787 billion economic stimulus bill quickly

 

Funny how the more things ‘change’, the more they stay the same.
