Wasting Away Again in Obamaville

The latest government figures show a slight uptick in unemployment in July. But these discouraging numbers are no deterrent to fraudulent happy talk about our rookie president’s leadership and policies.

In a press release from the White House, Allen B. Krueger, chairman of Obama’s Council of Economic Advisors, came up with this forehead slapper: “Today’s employment report provides further evidence that the U.S. economy is continuing to recover from the worst downturn since the Great Depression.”

Wow! If this is recovery, what would stagnation look like? What the press release provides further evidence of, as if we needed more, is that the Obama administration is cheerfully indifferent to the truth, has no respect for the intelligence of American voters, and recognizes no limits to outrageousness. If Obama’s campaign strategy required voters to believe  that July is the coldest month of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, I’ve no doubt Obama would simply appoint one of his willing elves to quickly prepare the necessary press releases.
