Obama Reprises McCain’s “Fundamentals of our Economy are Strong” Remark in Florida


The Democrat pummels his rival for his statements on the economy made weeks ago during a rally at the same place Obama kicks off Monday.

Says at the Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville: “Well, Florida, you and I know that’s not only fundamentally wrong, it also sums up his out-of-touch, on-your-own economic philosophy.”

Also says he wants to “congratulate McCain on the great race that he has fought,” mistakenly says he’s in Ohio instead of Florida.
