John McCain has consistently referred to himself as a deregulator who has never wanted much government oversight of the financial industry. He believed in the Republican line that market forces will regulate themselves.
That hands-off policy has really worked out well, hasn't it?
Now that deregulation is the order of the day, Katie Couric, in an interview with Sarah Palin (9/24/08), repeatedly asked for examples of McCain's support for federal financial controls:
Couric: I'm just going to ask you one more time, not to belabor the point: specific examples in his 26 years of pushing for more regulation.
Palin: I'll try to find ya some and I'll bring 'em to ya.
Add this to the "Bush doctrine" as another subject that Palin has to review with her tutors.
I guess there's not much gravitas to this vice presidential candidate's manner. We'll see if her perkiness is a winning substitute.
