Has the Administration Gone Insane?

By Caomhin

I don’t think the Administration is stupid, or oblivious, so I’m starting to wonder just how far disconnected they are from reality.  The word insane comes to mind, but that’s rather harsh I suppose, however, this type of spin is pure desperation, and if it’s not, well then, the only thing it can reasonably be is craziness.  Have a better idea?  I’m all ears.  Allow me to introduce you to the new White House fairy tale as you anxiously await your unicorn to arrive:

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel told The New York Times Obama intends to use the news conference as a “six-month report card,” to talk about “how we rescued the economy from the worst recession and the legislative agenda moving forward, including health care and energy legislation.

Really, they think they rescued the economy?  How, by blowing the deficit up to astronomical proportions, the fact that they’ve readily admitted that unemployment is going to keep growing, that both producer and consumer price indexes are already rising, housing prices keep falling, and so on?  That’s a RESUCE?  Seriously?  How far in the tank can the media be?  They can’t possibly spin this and have any shred of decency left.  On the plus side, we all know they’re full of it, so maybe the media will finally show it’s hand in full and the public will see just what it is they’re doing.  Think this is an isolated statement?  Nope.  Get ready for this to be their new re-occurring theme despite it being completely, and utterly, false:

it is becoming increasingly clear that the economy is no longer on the brink of disaster.”

That according to Obama budget director Peter Orszag, who is incapable of producing budget numbers before Congress leaves for recess.  Also, he says that it’s consensus that private economists are saying that the US will have positive economic growth by the end of the year.  Yet almost all indicators I’ve seen and all reports I’ve seen equates to the possibility of a slight uptick in GDP and no reduction in unemployment until 2010.  Don’t think for a minute that they don’t know that everyone is going to get hit with a tax increase in 2010 unless they extend the Bush Tax Cuts.  The money that will be leaving the private sector will also harm the economy right about the time that it’s supposed to be recovering and we still have not yet figured out a way to pay the $787 billion Obama spent on his “Stimulus” alone.  He’s spent a great, great deal more than that already.  That’s not saving anything at all, let alone an entire economic system.

This is all about politics to them and that is unforgiveable.  These are people’s lives we’re talking about and all they can do is lie and say that they’ve “saved” the economy?  Are they on drugs?  This is beyond dishonest.  Obama even went on TV tonight to spew this garbage while telling you that because his policies on economics have went so well that you should trust your healthcare, your life, to be in his hands and the hands of the people who think that the economy is “fixed.”  This is the their new meme, that they’ve “fixed” the economy, that they’ve “saved” us.  This is our reality, Obama’s policies, in under six months, may have created a new natural unemployment rate that approaches 7% instead of what it has always been in the United States, 3.5%.  Unforgiveable.

    Obama and those around him have no idea what to do about the economy—all they seem to do is throw more money at it—government spending does nothing to create wealth and stimulate economic growth. They seem to be stuck on some kind of “Kinky – Kenyan – Keynesianism!!
