将巴拉克·奥巴马(Barack Obama)形容为"情节犯"有点麻烦。不仅"prisoner"唤起了令人讨厌的文化定型观念,这也使总统陷入了他肯定不会蒙受的牺牲 '不客气。布伦丹并没有将他视为一个有力而有力的人,而是使用暗示消极,屈服,奴役和and割的术语。

当然是布伦丹's comments were "都是在说积极的事情的背景下"关于奥巴马总统-蒂姆·凯恩为哈里·里德辩护'不幸的话。我想这还可以。

我不同意当前经济不景气基于的借口"circumstances",而不是糟糕的政策。这里's why:

1. Despite Krugman, I can think of no case when a 刺激 actually worked to end a recession. OTOH Bush'的减税措施成效斐然。

2.演示"stimulus"引导,这是一种欺诈。他们坚持必须尽快通过。因此,人们没有't have time to read it. Yet, its spending actually has been coming on gradually. Much of the spending was pork to Dem special interests, rather than traditional 刺激. Even if some sort of 刺激 could have worked, this slow motion pork was never doing to do the trick.

3. The Dems have been wildly wrong about the economy. They said without their 刺激, the unemployment rate would be 9%; but with their recovery plan it would be nearly down to 7% by now. 相反,它上升了10%。 并且,工作数量持续下降。

4.职位减少的另一个原因是Dems'其他不良法律的威胁:健康"reform", Cap 'n贸易等。此外,巨大的持续赤字意味着税收将大幅增加和/或我们将出现高通胀。所有这些不确定性阻碍了企业的组建或扩张。

简而言之,它'有理由相信当前的经济问题不是由于"circumstances"但对奥巴马总统和民主党国会的错误政策
