    Incredible Headline from AP

     

    Economic jitters compete with Obama agenda

    Precisely! It is the economy vs. Obama's agenda, which has nothing to do with, and has done nothing for, the economy.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Just as President Barack Obama is pushing new initiatives on gun control and immigration, the gloomy old problem of a sluggish economy is elbowing its way back into prominence. Consumer confidence is falling, the economy is contracting and large automatic spending cuts are threatening to hit the Pentagon and other programs, with uncertain consequences.

    That damd pesky economy, always making trouble for my gluttonous liberal spending. If the greedy businesses would just go out and hire a bunch of people, or build some new buildings, or buy a bunch of new computers and equipment and just stuff, the economy would improve and I could focus like a laser beam (formerly promised for the economy) on my emotion-based America bashing and deconstruction.
