    L'il 'O has been very deferential to the man he's been ridiculing--and his zealots mocking--over economics. Well, it turns out L'il 'O ain't all that:

    I know, I know; McCain said he didn't know much about economics.

    Well, the libs ran off at the mouth about that, didn't they. Let's see if they can at least be consistent.

    Then they'll say: what's important is that he surround himself with smart people who know these things.

    uh-huh

    He's surrounded himself with Raines, Johnson, Goolsbee et al who made millions while Fannie and Freddie were giving away homes to the undeserving.

    Or maybe we'll hear that the smart man waits and sees...

    ...as Rome burns?

    McCain's Economic Adviser is ex-Texas Sen. Phil Gramm. On Dec. 15, 2000, hours before Congress was to leave for Christmas recess, Gramm had a 262-page amendment slipped into the appropriations bill. It forbade federal agencies to regulate the financial derivatives that greased the skids for passing along risky mortgage-backed securities to investors. And that, my friends, is why everything's falling apart. That is why the taxpayers are now on the hook for the follies of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Bear Stearns and now the insurance giant AIG to the tune of $700 billion.

    Stop re-posting the exact same comment in every new thread you jizz-swilling troll. I answered you moronic post elsewhere.

    Stick to the topic: your messiah is an idiot.

    Is that why you're threadjacking and ignoring my answer elsewhere?
