Video: WH spokesman explains difference between economy being "strong" and "sound"

Via the Standard. Originally I had the headline referring to “WH spokestool,” but that’s unfair: It’s not Gibbs who adopted McCain’s infamous language about the economy, it’s our supposed rhetorical genius president’s top economic advisor. What you’re about to see here is, I believe, a demonstration of Alinsky Rule #13: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, then try to bore it into passive submission by ducking the uncomfortable question it asked you with a meandering two-minute answer. Didn’t work this time but hope springs eternal.
