Obama: Fundamentals of the Economy are Strong after All


Over at the American Spectator, Philip Klein notes that President Obama is starting to sound a lot like John McCain these days:

This is pretty shocking. Today, President Obama said, "if we are keeping focused on all the fundamentally sound aspects of our economy, all the outstanding companies, workers, all the innovation, and dynamism in this country, then we're going to get through this. And I'm very confident about that."

It seems like ages ago, but when John McCain came out in September and said the "fundamentals of the economy are strong" candidate Obama responded furiously, in what became a defining moment of the campaign.



Klein suggests, probably knowing full well it will never happen, that Obama owes McCain an apology. More to the point, the press that savaged McCain for the comment owe us an apology for ignoring this apparent flip-flip (or moment of truth) from the President. Of course, the odds of the press covering this honestly about as good as McCain getting that apology.
