Doctor Zero: The phantom priority
My favorite commentator, Doctor Zero, has this awesome post about our dear comrade leader and his “priorities.”
After the passage of his massive health-care plan, President Obama promised a “hard pivot” to dealing with our flagging economy. Job creation was said to be his new “top priority.” Politicians make a habit of declaring lots of top priorities. Mark Knoller of CBS News recently put together an amusing list of thirteen items the President has declared to be his top priority. The promise to put the economy first was repeated loudly and often. It will still be ringing in the ears of voters when they clean Democrats out of Congress with an electoral leaf blower this autumn.
In reality, job creation and economic growth are nowhere to be found on this Administration’s list of priorities. The “hard pivot” was actually the feeble ring of ruby slippers clicking together.
Not much more I can say other than read the whole thing…
