Can you explain the difference between George W. Bush’s economic policy and that of John McCain? No? Apparently Mark Sanford, one of McCain’s top advisers can’t either.
BLITZER: Are there any significant economic differences between what the Bush administration has put forward over these many years as opposed to now what John McCain supports?
SANFORD: Um, yeah. For instance, take, you know, take, for instance, the issue of — I’m drawing a blank, and I hate it when I do that, particularly on television. Take, for instance the contrast on NAFTA. I mean, I think that the bigger issue is credibility in where one is coming from, are they consistent where they come from.
I believe the word you’re looking for, Mr. Sanford, is “hamana-hamana…” In theatre, we call that “going dry,” as in forgetting your lines.
Between Phil Gramm and Mr. Sanford, it’s been quite a week for the McCain economic policy team.
