Either way, only one of them knows how to think and use the people around him to solve problems. THAT, is the promise of OBAMA and THAT is a CHANGE from the way things are done in DC and in Alaska.

Neither do - that's a fact. But one actually refuses to believe that the economy is bad, while the other at least is aware that we are facing trouble. 2/4 major financial institutes collapsed this week, with a third facing possible demise (AIG). How can the economy be fundamentally strong

McCain did state that he does not know much about the economy while Obama minored in economics at Harvard even thought Harvard is a law school and Obama got his law degree.

I think McCain has been around longer than Obama, to have seen many wars, many economic donwturns in his life. This experince will give him a better judgment. Obama has a college degree and has worked in the community. Millions of Americans have the same experience as Obama has.

None, really. However, I think back to the Republicans' major talking point of the 1990's: the president has very little effect on economy. Therefore, does it really matter what McCain or Obama knows about economics when the economy is too big for them to truly control?
Answered By: Mercer Devil - 9/16/2008
While neither may be a Nobel prize-winning economist, at least Obama recognizes that something is fundamentally wrong with our economy and must be fixed. Facing the facts is the kind of change we need in the White House now!

Present. Just kidding, neither of them are an economist. However John McCain got it right when he said that the underlying economic foundation is strong. If it wasn't the economy wouldn't have grown by almost 3%

McCain believes "The fundamentals of our economy are sound". LOL What more do you need to know.

Listen to them talk. Look at their tax plans. Look at their voting records. And look at this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqGWTh_NZ-0 And tell me you want him running our economy.
