…water wet, and that President Obama needs to fire his economic team. Only in Washington, DC would something that would be such a blindingly obvious statement anywhere else in America be the subject of a press conference – and only in Dizzy City would it be something that needs a press conference, because otherwise the self-appointed elites who run the government right now wouldn’t even perceive it.
I mean, seriously. Of course Obama needs to fire his economic team. They suck at their jobs. They promised us a ‘mere’ 8% unemployment in exchange for an unprecedented stimulus package: and then they proceeded to botch said stimulus package and have now locked us into 9.N% unemployment for the foreseeable future. Not to mention deficits that are hard to even contemplate in any sort of meaningful way. And then there’s the small-business killing time bomb set to explode in next year’s tax hikes… I could go on. So, yes, please fire these people, Mr. President. As for their replacements?
Try a phone book.
