After tonight's debate, the AP went back to work as a Public Relations wing of Barack Obama's campaign. The Associated Press writes that John McCain said this regarding his plan for the economic crisis:
"It's my proposal. It's not Sen. Obama's proposal," McCain, R-Ariz., said at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn.(Source)
Obama charged that the current crisis was the "final verdict on the failed economic policies of the last eight years" that President Bush pursued and were "supported by Sen. McCain."
He contended that Bush, McCain and others had favored deregulation of the financial industry, predicting that would "let markets run wild and prosperity would rain down on all of us. It didn't happen."
Well, not only was there no response about John McCain's stance to regulate Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, here is John McCain's actual quote:
"It's my proposal. It's not Sen. Obama's proposal, it's not President Bush's proposal."
Now, why would the AP miss John McCain's point?
