Well, golly gee and gawrsh, guys and gals! Governor Palin weighed in on the crisis that's got Wall Street in a tizzy today, and here's what she said more or less.
The country's economic problems need some "shakin' up and fixin.' "
She blames the GOP's favorite whipping boy for all this, saying "Our regulatory system is outdated and needs a complete overhaul. Washington has ignored this. Washington has been asleep at the switch and ineffective and management on Wall Street has not run these institutions responsibly and has put companies and markets at risk....we are going to reform the way Wall Street does business..."
Is it just me, or is this really the GOP speaking? I mean, who's been in office for the last 8 years and who built a political edifice on the maxims of St. Ronald Reagan, he of 'government is the problem not the solution' and all that?
If this is the real deal, then McCain and Palin are running as independents because they're biting the hand that feeds. Does anyone here believe that? How are they going to do this? With more tax cuts?
I mean, when you think about it it's stunning. They must think we're really stupid.
