Obama Action Wire: Black Monday

By: Harry Waisbren

Here's the latest from the Obama Action Wire on the ongoing market failure:

Harry -- 

Hard-working American families are anxiously trying to make sense of yesterday's disastrous economic headlines.

While they're trying to figure out just how hard the news will hit them and their savings, John McCain's advice seems to be: don't worry about it.

Right after a major global investment bank declared bankruptcy, and in the middle of the second-biggest Dow Jones drop this century, McCain told an audience in Florida that "the fundamentals of our economy are strong." 

How can the fundamentals of our economy be strong when, just this year, 600,000 Americans have lost their jobs? When people are losing their homes? When health insurance is beyond the reach of an ever increasing number of Americans?

John McCain clearly doesn't get it.

Our latest ad contrasts the Bush-McCain economic dream world with the economic realities Americans face every day.

Watch it now and write a letter to your local newspaper about how out of touch John McCain is with ordinary families like yours:

McCain shared his wishful thinking just one day after former U.S. Treasurer Alan Greenspan called the current economic crisis "by far" the worst he'd ever seen.

It's possible that John McCain doesn't care about the economic realities of average Americans. But more it's more likely -- and more troubling -- that he doesn't even realize families are hurting. 

The McCain campaign may think we're merely in a "mental recession." But there's a very real way you can fight back against his dangerously out-of-touch economic approach.

Write a letter to your editor now and tell readers in your community about Barack's plans for real change that will help keep American families strong.


Keep fighting the good fight,

Obama Action Wire
