This is not a political blog (although it may have looked like one lately)--but as a professional historian, I could not let this comparison pass:
"The economy is fundamentally sound."
-- President Herbert Hoover, 1931
"The fundamentals of the economy are strong."
-- Presidential Candidate John McCain, 2008
Are we going from Hooverville to McCainville?
Both brought to you by the party that is wrecking America.
