‘Out of Touch’ McCain: ‘Fundamentals of Economy are Strong’

Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan told George Stephanopolous on Sunday that this is “by far” the worst economy he’s ever seen.

Below, at the recent Presidential Campaign Forum on National Service (left), John McCain says it’s “easy for [him] to go to Washington and be somewhat divorced from the day to day challenges people have.” Today, at a Jacksonville, Florida reality, he confirmed that divorce from reality by claiming that “the fundamentals of the economy are strong.”

At another rally today in Michigan, Joe Biden let him have it.

Said Obama spokeman Bill Burton: “Today of all days, John McCain’s stubborn insistence that the ‘fundamentals of the economy are strong’ shows that he is disturbingly out of touch with what’s going in the lives of ordinary Americans. Even as his own ads try to convince him that the economy is in crisis, apparently his 26 years in Washington have left him incapable of understanding that the policies he supports have created an historic economic crisis.”
