He Said, She Said, Bob Said

Dear Leader said yesterday in a joint press conference with PM Gordon Brown:

“What I’m looking at is not the day-to-day gyrations of the stock market, but the long-term ability for the United States and the entire world economy to regain its footing. And, you know, the stock market is sort of like a tracking poll in politics. It bobs up and down day to day, and if you spend all your time worrying about that, then you’re probably going to get the long-term strategy wrong.”

New blog pal Steve said:

Of course he’s looking at the stock market. Does anyone really believe that there is a day of 3%, 4% or greater drops in the market that he and his staff are not aware of it? Baloney! The only truth in Obama’s statement is that if he worried about it, he would get his long term strategy wrong. If your strategy is to erase wealth from a broad section of the population then you purposely ignore the market. You also sow fear, confusion and mistrust so that the market is unable to find footing. Do this long enough and you will erase huge amounts of 401Ks and other investments.

Fausta is yelling from the windows.

Either he is the most clueless CIC to date, or this is some kind of script that has been honed and crafted for decades. The Anchoress leans towards the latter.

I don’t know, but the president seems content to let the economy crash. His press secretary seems amused by it all – at least he seems to be giggling as the White House names yet another public voice that is to be laughed at and dismissed for daring to question this administration.

The condescension.

How could one man, with a campaign so brilliantly managed that it resembled a tsunami, be plagued by so many missteps since day one? What if they are not missteps at all? Elizabeth also says

The president seems wholly untroubled by any of this and is happily continuing on toward the creation of “one world” with a global “new deal” on his mind. The swiftness with which he is accruing and consolidating power is breathtaking, and most people don’t even realize he’s doing it.

That is one master of the game, America has elected. Bill Clinton wouldn’t be worthy to tie his sandals.

After lobbing waterballoons back and forth over the fence for a day or two, Rush throws down the gauntlet and challenges King O to a debate. Since he is offering to put The Won up with his own money, not on the taxpayer’s dime, then will Obama have to bring his own teleprompter or will Rush provide that as well? Will he bring the market along, tucked safely in his shoe bag, so it doesn’t bob about on a daily basis? Who will head up the conga line? Enquiring minds want to know!
