There once was an energy company called Enron.
Fortune named Enron "America's Most Innovative Company" for six consecutive years. At the end of 2001 it was revealed that its reported financial condition was sustained substantially by institutionalized, systematic, and creatively planned accounting fraud, sometimes called the "Enron scandal". Enron has since become a popular symbol of willful corporate fraud and corruption.
In a fit of denial as his company fell apart around him due to corruption and incompetence, the CEO Ken Lay defended the company despite all the evidence against him.
Like John McCain, Ken Lay was a good friend of George W. Bush. It seems they also shared talking points.
"The fundamentals of our business are strong."
That is right, John McCain steals his talking points on the economy from George Bush, Ken Lay, and Herbert Hoover.
The fundamental business of the country, that is the production and distribution of commodities, is on a sound and prosperous basis.
McCain would be an economic disaster, thank God we have a better option.
