VIDEO: Obama. Economic Advisor Flip-Flop On Economy Fundamentals

Obama Chief Economic Advisor, Dr. Christina Romer, appeared on this morning's "Meet The Press", attempting to instill confidence in economic plan.

She and President Obama say exactly the same thing John McCain was blasted for last year on the campaign trail: "The fundamentals of our economy are strong."

"The fundamentals of our economy are still strong but these are very, very difficult times. I promise you we will never put America in this position again," McCain said.

Obama responded, "Today of all days, John McCain's stubborn insistence that the 'fundamentals of the economy are strong' shows that he is disturbingly out of touch with what's going in the lives of ordinary Americans," Obama spokesman Bill Burton said. "Even as his own ads try to convince him that the economy is in crisis, apparently his 26 years in Washington have left him incapable of understanding that the policies he supports have created an historic economic crisis."

David Gregory calls Romer out on this, saying the only thing that has changed since September is that the economy has actually gotten worse!
