Obama slams McCain on economic crisis




And better still, he has been meeting with numerous financial heavyweights on both sides of the isle and will deliver his program on Friday. The same old thinking and the same old people who created this mess have to go. It’s not a matter of giving the boot to one or two people. The problems in our financial system are much broader than that and go layers deep. Of course, we could say the same about all of the Bush-McCain people who have been running the country. Their half-baked theories are bringing us all down.

Obama also mocked McCain’s promise to fire the head of the Securities and Exchange Commission if elected.

“I think that’s all fine and good but here’s what I think,” Obama said. “In the next 47 days you can fire the whole trickle-down, on-your-own, look-the-other way crowd in Washington who has led us down this disastrous path.

“Don’t just get rid of one guy. Get rid of this administration,” he said. “Get rid of this philosophy. Get rid of the do-nothing approach to our economic problem and put somebody in there who’s going to fight for you.”

Obama came up with yet another way to poke fun at McCain for his comment Monday that the fundamentals of the economy were strong. “This comment was so out of touch that even George Bush’s White House couldn’t agree with it when they were asked about it. They had to distance themselves from John McCain.”
