It’s only been 7 weeks since the man whose resume fits nicely on the back of a postage stamp became the most powerful human being in the universe. As Presidents go, Barack Obama has proven at least one thing true: change is like the flip of a coin. Change can bring the best of times; change can bring the worst of times. And anyone over the age of twelve ought to have known that. Instead, 52% of the American electorate has run around like a bunch of howling ninnies for the past year chanting like a horde of Jim Jones’ followers, who can’t get enough of the poison kool-aid.

So much for progressive enlightenment.
With an economy in shambles, slinking toward all-out depression a little further each day, the President doesn’t know the difference between a popularity-based political tracking poll and the confidence meter of the stock market, which represents the actual savings and pension funds of millions and millions of ordinary Americans. Heck, the golden boy of campaign one-liners doesn’t even know that P/E ratio stands for price/earnings, not profit/earnings.
If only he had once had a paper route instead of all those pick-up games with the hoops.
That famed transition team — the team that was given greater inside access than ever in history by a more-than-gracious out-going President, is about to go down as the most incompetent bunch of nincompoops ever produced by a university system. Those fancy degrees are evidently not worth the paper upon which they’re printed.
In a time of mounting economic peril, even as the transition team dithered, one would have thought that fully staffing the Department of the Treasury would have been top priority. Not for this bunch. Timothy tax-cheat-TurboTax-challenged Geithner is a one-man Treasury Department and is so out of touch that he spent precious minutes in front of a Congressional panel scolding our own gas and oil companies for damaging the environment, even as a record 31.8 million Americans sign up for food stamps.
Earth to Tim: You won’t get the Country out of this mess by slamming the companies that hire us so we won’t need to be on the dole.
Is there a single business enterprise in America that this administration doesn’t hate with a death wish?
Some of those folks now lining up to get food stamps and the like probably worked in the domestic tourist industries that have taken a whack from President Obama. Every time the President slams a trip by so-and-so from such-and-such company, real people lose the jobs they would have had providing services to these executives….
