- More Economic Illiteracy
How many times can you write an essay explaining economic illiteracy? Frankly, it's exhausting. It's gotten so I turn the volume off everytime another Democrat comes on the TV (although when it's people like Anthony Wiener or Debbie Wasserman Schultz I often leave it on for the comedy value). But the problem with standing by and let Democrats make the same mistakes over and over again is that it's never they who pay the price... it's us.
I didn't bother watching the SOTU speech last night - life is too short. And thanks to the people over at NRO, I don't have to write yet another tedious essay about how economically illiterate Obama is. My personal favorite from their copious selection is this one, where Henry Payne describes Obama as channeling former Governor of Michigan Jennifer Granholm.
It's hard to find a more economically illiterate pol than Jennifer Granholm. She's been breathing union helium for so long that precious few of her brain cells have survived. And the images you can see of the jewel in her crown, Detroit, obviously show that. That Obama would like to make all of America more like Detroit is obvious from his policies. He simply ignores the down side of top down thinking and omnipotent labor unions.
But at this point, even complaining about that is too much for me.
