Gibbs' Defense Neither 'SOUND' Nor 'STRONG'

Yesterday the AP noted the seeming contradiction between Barack Obama's recent declaration that the fundamentals of the US economy are 'sound' and his relentless criticism of Sen. John McCain - during the presidential campaign - for essentially saying the same thing.

However, White House spokesman, Robert Gibbs on Monday tried to smooth over this seeming contradiction by asserting that Sen. McCain had characterized the economy as being fundamentally "STRONG", whereas the president had merely characterized the economy as being fundamentally "SOUND".



Now, aside from the fact that Mr. Gibbs' contention is nothing more than a childish play on words and pure chicanery at best, it also happens to be patently skewered.

For indeed, during the first presidential debate in September, Barack Obama specifically stated that Sen. McCain had said the fundamentals of the economy were "SOUND" - not "STRONG". [although McCain had used the word 'strong', Obama thought he had used the word 'sound'] Obama then went on to say that he disagreed with McCain and that he did not think the fundamentals of the economy were 'SOUND':

OBAMA: And there are folks out there who've been struggling before this crisis took place. And that's why it's so important, as we solve this short-term problem, that we look at some of the underlying issues that have led to wages and incomes for ordinary Americans to go down.... because, you know, 10 days ago, John said that the fundamentals of the economy are SOUND.

MODERATOR, JIM LEHRER: Say it directly to him [to McCain].

OBAMA: I do not think that they are ['sound'].

LEHRER: Say it directly to him.

OBAMA: Well, the -- John, 10 days ago, you said that the fundamentals of the economy are SOUND. And...

MCCAIN: Are you afraid I couldn't hear him?

(LAUGHTER)

LEHRER: I'm just determined to get you all to talk to each other. I'm going to try.

OBAMA: The -- and I just fundamentally disagree...
So, Mr. President, I'm not really sure if you believe the fundamentals of the economy are 'sound' or not, but I am certain of one thing:

You and your minions need to spruce up your act a tad bit. This latest bout of chicanery emanating from the White House is neither "Sound" nor "STRONG", if anything, it's pretty "LAME".....

Sorry Mr. Gibbs, you're a deceitful charlatan at best - but nice try anyway.......
