On CNN's Late Edition Sunday, Rep. Roy Blunt acknowledged that John McCain would be like a third term of George W. Bush on the economy --- and "that's a good thing."
The left-leaning Think Progress group has hopped all over it, and offers VIDEO of the exchange with Wolf Blitzer.
Blunt spokesperson Nick Simpson responded with this:
"Last time I checked Republican pro-growth tax policies have given us 6 years of economic growth and prevented a recession after 9/11. More importantly, the economy didn’t stall out until Democrats took control of Congress and began raising taxes. I guess that’s the positive economic policy this new majority wants."
