Obama Speaks About the Economy in Colorado

John Cole pointed out an interesting parallel today between McCain and Hoover:

“On the morning of October 30, 1929, President Herbert Hoover awoke the day after the biggest one-day stock market crash in American history, surveyed the state of the U.S. economy and declared, “The fundamental business of the country, that is production and distribution of commodities, is on a sound and prosperous basis.”

Sound familiar?

Here's video of a great speech on the economy today by Obama in Golden, Colorado.
