Brian Williams: Congressman Paul, a question for one of your colleagues on stage.

Ron Paul: My question is for Senator McCain. This is an economic question that I wanted to ask. It has to do with the President’s Working Group on Financial Markets. I’d like to know what your opinion is of this and whether you would keep it in place, what their role would be, … if you… or would you get rid of this Group? And if you kept the Group, would you make sure we would see some sunlight and know what they were doing and how they’re being involved in our markets?

John McCain: Well, obviously we would like to see more sunshine. But I, as President, as every other President, rely primarily on Secretary of Treasury, on my Council of Economic Advisors, on the head of that. I would rely on the circle that I have developed over many years of people like Jack Kemp, Phil Gramm, Warren Rudman, Pete Peterson, and the Concord Group. The… I have a process of leadership, Ron, that is sort of an inclusive one that I have developed a circle of acquaintances and people that are supporters and friends of mine whom I have worked with for many, many years.

Ron Paul: So, you would get rid of this Group….?

John McCain: You remember back in 1982 when Phil Gramm… Phil Gramm and Warren Rudman and Gramm-Latta and all of those people got the first real tax cuts done – the real first real restraints in taxes. I was there. You were there. And I rely on those people to a much larger degree than any quote “formal organization”, although the Secretary of Treasury is one of the key and important posts that I would have.

Ron Paul: "Do you know jack shit about economics?"

McCain: "No, but I have lots of friends. Maybe one of them does?"

Oh ok now i see, he said "It has to do with the President’s Working Group." My kids must have been making noise when he asked it... somehow I missed RP saying "Group" and I was scratching my head

Nevertheless, sunshine, rainbows, lollipops, and acquaintances.

i think we should look into the people McCain named. just to see where his economic policies come from.

Mccain didn't have a clue what he was being asked and it was obvious.

Then he just gave a bullchit answer.

Bag it!

It's not surprising that McCain cut off Paul's attempt to get him to answer the question. Hmmph!

Ron Paul: "Do you know jack shit about economics?"

McCain: "No, but I have lots of friends. Maybe one of them does?"

I knew whomever got the question from Ron Paul was toast. Any of the media comment about that?

I asked last night and the thread got buried quickly so I'll try again. Who is the Concord Group McCain mentions? When I googled I got everything from an insurance company to a fine musical instument maker.

Any ideas?
