"Of Course the Fundamentals Are Sound... that WE'RE in charge."

From Fox News today--just connecting a few dots:


"Out of touch."

"Incapable of understanding" the economic crisis.

That's how Barack Obama and his presidential campaign team described John McCain last year when the Republican candidate famously said "the fundamentals of our economy are strong."

But now President Obama and his advisers are adopting similar rhetoric as they try to build public confidence in an economic turnaround.

"Of course the fundamentals are sound," Obama economic adviser Christina Romer said Sunday.

The Obama Administration's presumption of the average American's stupidity is astonishing.

Of course, we ARE the ones holding the bill for trillion dollar stimulus packages, so maybe we shouldn't argue with the assessment, now that it's out in the open.
