It’s 3am, Economic Edition

By on 3.27.08 | 2:29PM

I'm working on a longer piece about the three candidate's economic proposals so will hold back on offering futher comment for now, but this Hillary Clinton remark today was too absurd too leave unmentioned:

"It's time for a president who is ready on Day One to be the Commander-in-Chief of our economy. Sometimes the phone rings at 3 a.m. in the White House and it's an economic crisis. And we need a president who is ready and willing and able to answer that call. I read the speech that Senator McCain gave the other day which set forth his plan which does virtually nothing to ease the credit crisis or the housing crisis. It seems like if the phone were ringing, he would just let it ring and ring and ring."
