Obama Tells It Like It Is

John McCain's response to the economic mess on Wall Street is - - fire the head of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Silly symbolism. Weaker than his 'let's-set-up-a-commission' do-nothing proposal.

To which Barack Obama replied today in New Mexico - - and I hope the campaign makes an ad out if it:

"I think that's all fine and good but here's what I think," Obama said. "In the next 47 days you can fire the whole trickle-down, on-your-own, look-the-other way crowd in Washington who has led us down this disastrous path. Don't just get rid of one guy. Get rid of this administration. Get rid of this philosophy. Get rid of the do-nothing approach to our economic problem and put somebody in there who's going to fight for you."

And then there's problem that the President can't actually fire the head of the SEC...
