Straight Talk!

CREDIT:

It’s kind of odd of John McCain to deny ever having said that he’s not that well informed about economics when he quite clearly has said that several times. What’s more, while the admission is damning, it at least qualified as some of the straight talk for which McCain is legendary (“I may not make a very good president, but at least I’m willing to admit that electing me would be a huge mistake”) now he’s just a guy who doesn’t know much about economics and also likes to lie about his own past confessions of ignorance.
