Biden Uncorks Tough Populist Hit On McCain Over “Fundamentals” Line September 15, 2008

TPM Election Central

Joe Biden is currently speaking in Michigan, where he seized on John McCain’s claim this morning that the “fundamentals of our economy” are strong in order to unleash an extensive populist attack that pulled together just about every questionable McCain comment on the economy from the entire campaign.

Here’s a key excerpt (from Biden’s prepared remarks):

Senator McCain has confessed, quote, “It’s easy for me to go to Washington and frankly, be somewhat divorced from the day-to-day challenges people have.” And he’s right, if all you do is walk the halls of power, all you hear are the wants of the powerful.I believe that’s why Senator McCain could say with a straight face, as recently as this morning, and I quote “the fundamentals of our economy are strong.” That, “We’ve made great progress economically” during the Bush years. But friends, I could walk from here to Lansing, and I wouldn’t run into a single person who thought our economy was doing well, unless I ran into John McCain.

John McCain just doesn’t seem to understand what middle class people are going through today. I don’t doubt that he cares. He just doesn’t think that we have any responsibility to help people who are hurting.
