The Times-Dem, in its inimitable way, highlights the brainless 'leadership' emanating from this WH:
"But others, including Gene Sperling, Mr. Obama’s chief economic adviser, say public anger over the debt ceiling debate has weakened Republicans and created an opening for bigger ideas like tax incentives for businesses that hire more workers (talk about totally not getting it - EK), according to Congressional Democrats who share that view. Democrats are also pushing the White House to help homeowners facing foreclosure."
"The issue is being framed by the 2012 election. Administration officials, frustrated by the intransigence of House Republicans, have increasingly concluded that the best thing Mr. Obama can do for the economy may be winning a second term, with a mandate to advance his ideas on deficit reduction, entitlement changes (!!! holy-freaking-crap, are they kidding? - EK), housing policy and other issues."
These economic illiterates believe their own bullshit spin. If we don't jettison them next November, we're in for a world of hurt.
