I have waited for this day since the end of the RNC.
No more lipstick talk. Forget talking about the bridge to nowhere. Nope – after a Republican imposed break from substantive issues, it’s time to return to discuss those issues that actually impact us in our daily lives. This week after Lehman, Merril Lynch and now AIG have all need to be bailed out. After Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were saved by the government two weeks ago – now it’s time to talk about the economy.
And what does John McCain say on Monday: “Our economy, I think, is still — the fundamentals of our economy are strong, but these are very, very difficult times,”
Well at least he got the last part right. These are very difficult times.
We’ll see if people can be distracted by gutter campaigning while their insurance company goes under, the mortgage company goes bankrupt, and the holder of their 401K files for bankruptcy.
People – wake the fuck up.
