Now that President Obama has scared the Congress into authorizing the expenditure of more than a trillion dollars. A feat accomplished by constantly talking the economy down and endlessly referring to the worse economic downturn since the Great Depression. Today, Obama put on his rose colored glasses and declared most aspects of the US economy “fundamentally sound”:
On September 15, 2008, The National Debt Was $9,634,090,464,815.55; Yesterday It Was $10,983,549,928,728,.74. (U.S. Treasury Department’s Treasury Direct Website, accessed 3/13/09)
Ever since McCain’s fundamentally sound remark, week in and week out, we have been told how much worse the economy is than it was the week before. At least that was the story before Obama signed the latest pork-infested big government spending bill earlier this week. Suddenly we are back to McCain’s fundamentally sound,
So where is the derision and the umbrage now?
Obama’s his top economic advisers found a little. Larry Summers told the Brookings Institution that it’s “impossible to know when the
crisis will end,” and Paul Volcker said, “there are big economic problems behind
the financial system too that are going to take longer to work
out and you can’t neglect those problems while we’re working on
this immediate, continuing crisis in the financial system.”,
No, it’s not the same as it was when McCain said fundamentally sound, but the derision and the umbrage would have been the same if that was McCain saying what Obama said today.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Like Ron Paul, there’s no such thing as a conspiracy theory that Donald Trump will not believe. There’s a reason that people like Alex Jones exist, and that’s because a person who believes one insane conspiracy will most likely believe them all.
