Available evidence shows the U.S. economy is in shambles -there’s a 20% chance we’ll have a depression- yet the Obama administration’s stated views on the condition of the economy change from day to day depending on the audience.
A week ago White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) director Peter Orszag told reporters “fundamentally, the economy is weak.”
But then there was a miraculous turnaround, at least rhetorically, as President Obama osculated the posterior of Chinese premier Wen Jiabao whose bond holding government is justifiably nervous about the solvency of the U.S. government.
In the absence of actual evidence and contrary to every statement he made about the economy while he rammed his so-called stimulus bill through Congress last month, President Obama said Friday: “if we are keeping focused on all the fundamentally sound aspects of our economy, all the outstanding companies, workers, all the innovation, and dynamism in this country, then we’re going to get through this. And I’m very confident about that.”
White House chief economic adviser Christina Romer echoed her boss’s words Sunday, saying that fundamentals of the economy are “sound.”
“The fundamentals are sound in the sense that the American workers are sound, we have a good capital stock, we have good technology,” Romer said on “Meet the Press.”
Maybe OMB’s Peter Orszag didn’t get the memo from David Axelrod.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
