"A smidgen of good news and suddenly everything is doing great. A little bit of bad news and ooohh , we're down on the dumps," Obama said. "And I am obviously an object of this constantly varying assessment. I am the object in chief of this varying assessment."I can only suppose he did not know the country would look to him for leadership. Huh-what a surprise!
Then Obama went on:
"....in defense of his blueprint to overhaul the economy Thursday, declaring the national crisis is "not as bad as we think" and his plans will speed recovery."
Well that sure is good news! Just 5 days ago he said the word "crisis" 4 times in his weekly radio address-which might not be so bad, until you realize the speech was only 5 minutes long. Nearly once every minute. Soooo, thank goodness that's over. Whew!
Finally we end with this little gem:
"I don't think things are ever as good as they say, or ever as bad as they say," Obama added."
Huh? What did he just say? As good or bad as who says? Him? Other people? Do we listen to the babble coming out of your mouth or dismiss it as over-blown? Or is it a case of "Hey guys while I'm talking to the actual business owners everything is cool. Oh, it's OK, just keep on doing what you're doing. If you quit who would I steal from?"
This is going to be a loooong four years.
