McCain has belittled his own knowledge on economics
McCain, faced with his own past statements pooh-pooh’ing his grasp of economic issues, said “I don’t know where you got that quote from.”
Moderator Tim Russert probably got it from the Wall Street Journal.
“I’m going to be honest: I know a lot less about economics than I do about military and foreign policy issues,” McCain told the paper’s Steve Moore in 2005. “I still need to be educated.”
