“Sometimes you can’t defend the indefensible.”
Obama White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley at a meeting of the National Association of Manufacturers. The topic, “the wholesale assault by Obama on the free enterprise system and the private job creators who make it run.”
Our Dear Leader openly criticizes the ‘private sector economy’, something he has absolutely zero experience with, for not creating new jobs in the harshly anti-business, anti-growth, economic environment created by President Obama and the congressional democrats. Then he sends out his new Chief of Staff to attempt to the “defend the indefensible.”
Kudos to Mr. Daley for having the guts not to stand there and openly and blatantly lie about the effects of the Obama economic policies as other members of this administration have done in the past. I can’t help but wonder if our Dear Leader will toss Mr. Daley under the bus, as he is doing to Kenneth Melson, the current head of the ATF.
Update: Doug Powers points out that it’s the one-year anniversary of Recovery Summer™. How is that working out for you? If you aren’t sure, try this simple experiment. Drive around your local community and start counting the number of empty store fronts. Are there more or less than last summer? How many new businesses have opened up in your local area in the past year? That should a good meter stick to measure the, ahem, “recovery” the Obama economy has brought us.

“Should I tell you the most damning thing I ever heard about the Soviet block? Just before the wheel finally came off in East Germany you couldn’t get a shredder for love nor money in West Germany. The STASI were shredding at a rate to keep all Europe in hamster bedding till 2050 and true socialism couldn’t keep up with the demand for shredders so they had to buy them from the West.”

We have an election coming up. We also have $5/gallon gasoline and $5/loaf bread coming up. I do not expect the real unemployment rate to fall, although there will be frantic attempts to make it look lower, largely through statistical manipulations based on the definition of unemployment: if you’re not looking for work, you aren’t unemployed even if you have no job and never again expect to find one. As more give up looking, the unemployment rate goes down. And since the unions do not intend to lower their wages and perks, and the states are out of money, there will be “furloughs” among public employees including teachers. You can manipulate those numbers so the “furloughed” are not unemployed. It promises to be an interesting summer, but it will end with $5/gallon gasoline and $5/loaf bread. Look for the price of a can of beans to get higher. Look for the price of Top Ramen to rise…
This will continue so long as the current economic and foreign policies continue.
“[T]he politically correct are above the rules of ordinary civility, once they have identified you as an unbeliever in their religion.”
Once again, Ann Coulter nails it:
“Do not allow Democrats anywhere near foreign policy. Not even to keep them away from domestic policy. It’s a mistake to ask those who don’t even like democracy to defend it.”
