The McCain Economy

Today’s electoral map (from FiveThirtyEight): Obama 314.3 EV ; McCain 223.7 EV

John McCain has repeatedly said that he doesn’t know very much about the economy.

Problem is, now the economy has become America’s #1 issue.  How does McCain deal with the fact that he’s mostly clueless about the biggest issue in the country?

He lies:

“I have not. I have not. Actually, I have not.”

— Sen. John McCain, in an interview on ABC News, when asked why he “admitted that you’re not exactly an expert when it comes to the economy.”

Well, the DNC is on the case, exposing McCain’s record of doubletalk:

The economy is the number one issue on the minds of the American people, and John McCain–much like his close friend George W. Bush–knows almost nothing about it.  And let’s face it, you can’t fix a problem you admimt you don’t even understand.
