"The issue of economics is not something I've understood as well as I should."..... John McCain - December 2007.
From ABC News:
The Republican senator from Arizona smiled as he denied he ever dissed his understanding of economics and said he was "more experienced than my opponent."
The Republican presidential candidate made his comments during an exclusive interview from Cartagena, Colombia, with "Good Morning America's" Robin Roberts, who asked McCain why he went abroad when the No. 1 issue for voters was the U.S. economy.
Steven R at Daily Kos thinks that this will end more sucessfully than McCain trying to figure out the American economic situation. He may well be right.
