That Was Quick

It took less than 24 hours for Obama to pounce on McCain's little gotcha suggesting that changes in banking be applied to healthcare. Obama went after him full bore this morning:

"So let me get this straight -- he wants to run health care like they've been running Wall Street," Obama told the audience. "Well, Senator, I know some folks on Main Street who aren't going to think that's such a good idea."

...

On Social Security, Obama said, McCain's support for privatization would leave senior citizens at risk at a time when the stock market has plummeted. "I know Senator McCain is talking about a 'casino culture' on Wall Street -- but the fact is, he's the one who wants to gamble with your life savings and that is not going to happen when I'm president of the United States."

Perfect move. McCain already fucked up on the economy, now Barack is saying McCain wants to treat healthcare as he'd treat the economy. People are going to see this and truly see what McCain is like for their everyday life.
