“Obama White House: US likely faces ‘permanently slower’ economic growth”

So. Throw on a sweater or two, turn down the heat to conserve energy, and get used to it. It’s time to manage the decline. Because for fairness, malaise and homogeneity is a small price to pay.

What is it I wrote back in 2007, again? That Obama is Jimmy Carter with a tan?

Well, in fairness to Carter, Obama hates his country far more than does Jimmah, who is simply a misguided leftist ideologue who never understood his own intellectual limitations: one can be a nuclear physicist and still have no insight into human nature, and Carter’s leftism failed because he fell for the mythology of Rousseau and championed the noble savages who it turned out were not noble at all, merely savages, and opportunistic ones at that. And like giant angry water bunnies, they made him look foolish.

Whereas Obama is following Davis, Alinsky, Said, Bell, Piven, Ayers, Dohrne, Khalidi, and Wright. He’s their ideological offspring, their manufactured puppet, a product of the human mind basted in odes to tyranny disguised as bravely undertaking the necessary evils required to re-shape society into something more egalitarian — save, of course, for the elevated stature of those who will then run the leftist Utopia.

Still. Close enough.

  1. Does this mean we don’t have to listen to any more of that “he’s a good man” shit? One can hope so.

  2. That “permanent”, I take it, is a key to how long ObazZzma intends to stay in office?

  3. i have a fresh spreadsheet open and I’m a use it to quantify the amount of ass president food stamps sucks

    brb

  4. It’s worth listening to the old Thatcher speeches, if only to be reminded that there is a way out of the darkness. I just hope that our neighbors wake up before it’s too late (assuming it isn’t already).

  5. Don’t forget to include his own: he laps that shit up.

  6. Does this mean we don’t have to listen to any more of that “he’s a good man” shit? One can hope so.

    </staunch> What “good man” shit? I have no idea what you’re talking about. Perhaps you’re misremembering something, or you misunderstood, or misheard. I’ve always known this guy was bad news. Perhaps you’re paranoid, or otherwise unstable.<staunch>

  7. I think my favorite Thatcher quote that I saw recently is the observation that the left would rather see the poor poorer as long as the rich weren’t as rich, rather than have all incomes rise even if the highest incomes rise at a greater rate than the lower incomes.

    That is Obama in a nutshell.

  8. i have a fresh spreadsheet open and I’m a use it to quantify the amount of ass president food stamps sucks

    Infinite rows and columns takes forever, ‘feets. Maybe just put ? in cell A1 and call it good.

  9. That ? was a number 8, lying on its side.

  10. i had to reboot everything got all frozened

  11. so does this mean the President can rest now?

    Commas. They save lives!

  13. I had to explain the “malaise” speech to a 20-something engineer here at work. In a nutshell, the speech said that “Things suck, they’re not getting better, so you might as well get used to it.” He actually thought I was pulling his leg, probably because Harry Reid said that this is what a recovery looks like. In Zimbabwe.

    To be fair to my coworker, he’s actually not a leftist twit, he’s simply young and uninformed politically.

  14. I’ve noticed similar confusion from some of my younger cow-orkers. You make a couple of “Welcome Back, Carter” quips and they just stare at you like golden retrievers.

  15. commas are decadent and showy

  16. Try a coma, then.

    It just had to be added.

  18. In better news, yesterday I just happened to tune in to the livecam for the Great Blue Herons just down the road from where I used to live.

    The previous day, the male who built the nest had brought a new female on board and was courting her. Only minutes after I tuned in, he mounted her a couple of times; 50 hours from yesterday afternoon, she’ll be laying her eggs.

    I watched the bebe herons last year: they’re all eyeballs and beaks and foots and they go clackity-clack all day long.

  19. Doesn’t something have to be moving at all to be classified as “slower”, or is it a totally relative thing where “stopped” is slower than just “slow”.

    By my usage you don’t get to use the phrase “slower growth” until new jobs meets or exceeds the number of people getting out of the workforce and into the hammock.

  20. i read somewhere this morning the gestation period for to make a new golden retriever is like just a couple months or whatever

    who knew?

    nobody tells me anything

  21. Elefunk are double hooman gestation.

    Lucky them.

    They probably weren’t born yet when ‘Welcome back Kotter’ was re-running on TVLAND. Heyyoooooo.

  23. I have blue herons here, too. They stalk around in the shallows by our dock and spear unsuspecting small fry. They are unflappable, too. I had an eagle out there on the shore last week trying to intimidate the heron by spreading his wings and looking fierce-like. The heron was all “meh” and kept on fishing.

  24. “He actually thought I was pulling his leg”

    show him this

    CBS News archives: Carter’s famous “malaise speech”

  25. Seriously, can we admit that they’ve ruined America culture yet?

    Or do I have to endure even more Jimmy “man child who knows his marketing!” Fallon?

    Eh, I know, I know. It’s why I no longer have cable.

  26. I think we should all mail Obama some ratty cardigan sweaters with our regards.

    Jimmy Carter wakes up smiling each morning now that Obama has replaced him as the worst president evah.

  27. Given Harris-Perry’s strong voice for the enslavement of children, who couldn’t see this coming?: the enslavement of everyone else who isn’t Harris-Perry and Co.

  28. ObaZma: “You should be thanking me.”

  29. Doesn’t something have to be moving at all to be classified as “slower”, or is it a totally relative thing where “stopped” is slower than just “slow”.

    As the Evil Midnight Bomber What Bombs At Midnight once said: AN OBJECT AT REST CANNOT BE STOPPED!

  30. That’s funny. I had made mention of the irony of Ms. Harris-Perry, as an educated and articulate woman of color, advocating slavery in this day and age, just this very morning.

  31. “It’s worth listening to the old Thatcher speeches”

    We may have gone beyond Thatcher. Time for Churchill, maybe Patrick Henry.

  32. Business is too difficult, expensive, and complicated to start and run now. And since we are up to our grandkid’s eye teeth in debt now credit is drying up. You utopian douchebags totally fucked up. Like you ALWAYS do. Big surprise. All you do is make the rich poorer, the middle class goners, and the poor stay poor. You suck, and all you can ever really do is hurt people with your stupid ideas and then pat yourself on the back for trying and regret that you didn’t have MORE money to toss into your insipid boondoggles and red tape.

    Second worst. Buchanan let half the country try to up and leave.

    Obama’s just about worked his way into a tie.

  34. Second worst. Buchanan let half the country try to up and leave.

    Aren’t a lot of us here less and less convinced that that was a bad thing?

  35. Yakov Smirnoff: “Russia is much better country than America because in America you share your wealth unequally, in Russia we share our poverty equally!”

    Obama: “But we are fundamentally transforming the United States of America!”

  36. You suck, and all you can ever really do is hurt people with your stupid ideas and then pat yourself on the back for trying and regret that you didn’t have MORE money to toss into your insipid boondoggles and red tape.

    Which you ponder and lament while you jet off on vacation, to lounge at a five-star resort, or golf at an exclusive country club.
