I haven't seen too many liberals blame Obama for anything -- except not being far enough left.
Yup. In Fearless Leader's big speech Thursday evening, I did not hear him accept responsibility for a single negative or admit that a single policy of his Administration has produced negative results. Nor did he give a single specific of what they would do differently with another almost $500 billion on top of the almost $900 billion in stimulus they have already spent or obligated.
But you can trust him. This time it really will turn out as promised.
All we got was am ambiguous 'millions of jobs' (again) that would be paid for (decided by somebody in the future) and distributed over the next ten years along with the 1.7 trillion in budget cuts (somewhere - they don't know where yet) distributed over the next ten years. This of course would be handled by other folks on down the line.
Meanwhile what about the runaway spending in the meantime? Where does that get paid for?
And, while not accepting any responsibility for anything but promising grandiose results for increasing the current deficit another $500 billlion (interest will be paid on the money borrowed to do this. . . .)
He did set the stage to blame the Republicans when it doesn't come off as advertised.
Apart from very real grief at how this is dragging down the economy and tearing the country apart, I feel real resentment, even rage, at how stupid he thinks we are. He thinks we're buying it.
Sadly, some are.
All his economic policies. You can tell because we're worse off now than when he took office.
All his economic policies.
