The Republican View of the Economy
Delegates to the Republican National Convention are as divorced from reality as is John McCain. Like McCain, they think the nation's economic outlook is rosy. Nine out of ten Democratic delegates think the economy is in a recession, while nearly three out of four Republican delegates disagree with that assessment. The Republicans have proof:
"If we were in a recession, people would not be eating out — they would be in the grocery store and cooking at home," said Phyllis Gorman, 59, a business owner and delegate from Oklahoma, in an interview after the delegate poll was taken. "When I drive by McDonald’s, there are so many people in line there."
Right. Because if you can afford a Big Mac with fries, you must be doing well.
