Steele Laughs Off Recession: “The Malls Are Just As Packed” (No, They Aren’t)

Michael Steele is at it again — this time denying that there’s a severe economic crisis going on, while guest-hosting Bill Bennett’s radio show, and laughing about it:

After a caller said he didn’t see anybody spending less money than usual, Steele replied: “I’ve heard a number of people say that across the country. [LAUGHTER] The malls are just as packed on Saturday. [LAUGHTER]”

In fact, according to market research, malls have been losing stores at an increased rate, as the consumer base has gone down.
