If Obama Has Any Original Ideas On The Economy, He Keeps Them To Himself

Obama -- who complains that McCain's economic policies would mirror Bush's -- was put on the spot today and asked exactly how his plan to deal with the Wall Street crisis would be any different than the current Administration's. All Obama could answer was essentially, "I will have to get back to you on that."

As Reuters reports:

Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama said on Friday he supported efforts by the U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve to shore up confidence in the financial markets and said he would hold off from presenting his own economic recovery plan.

When it comes to his economic policies, Obama seems to be following the advice of Abraham Lincoln, who famously said that it's better to remain silent and let people think you are dumb than open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Please note: The postings of "G. Morris", written by John K. Bush and which end in 2016, stated his views as of the dates of posting and should not be understood as current assertions of his views. The postings, which have not been altered since they came to an end, remain on this blog to preserve the historical record. In 2017, Mr. Bush took a position that precludes further public political comments or endorsements. He will no longer be contributing to this blog.
