Obama Comes Clean

Tyler Durden's picture


In a strange coincidence, President Obama, as reported by Bloomberg, just followed Mario Monti's new normal and 'came clean' about the real state of the economy, following his earlier snafu:


The President went on to say that he knows the economy "needs to be strengthened" while clinging to his basic belief that there has been some momentum. Is 'truth' the new 'lie'? Or did hope and change just change on less hope?

When I said everything is really OK, I meant that everything as I know it and believe me, I know everything, is fine and dandy.  The seats on OurForceWon are still leather, no graffiti on the walls or carpet, the white folks who wait on me hand and foot are still pleasant, nobody's threatened anyone else, there's still plenty of food and booze, people beg for my attention for highly important matters of state, we have plenty of time for MSNBC, Sports Desk and reruns of drone strikes, the kids play with that fucking big ass purebred dog that Kennedy rescued form the pound for me which sheds the shit all over, all my closest personal friends from Hollywood come to entertain me, the captains of industry fawn to be around me for the few moments of their fame because of me, the car service is punctual, the gardens well tended, I can and do say anything I damned well please and nobody but that fuck Limbaugh messes with me and he'll get his with a royal drone strike and my people still love me.
And I still am still the fucking chief of the most powerful nation on earth.
Everything's fine.

Another excerpt from my book, "Lies of the Right":

Chapter 8 - Purism
I believe it was Mark Potock of the Southern Poverty Law Center who coined the term right wing purism. 

Purism stems from the arrogant assumption that universal propositions have to be either true or false. That absolutist statements like "taxation is theft" have a Boolean truth value. This is NOT necessarily the case. Propositions can actually be half-way true or a quarter false. Liberals understand this very well, which is why we prefer to talk about the effects of actions rather than the dogmatic principles that classify then as moral or immoral according to libertarian dogma.

Well, because libertarians openly embrace the "free market" and "capitalism" which are understood by most people to be heartless and criminal. Only a right wing extremist would bring embrace concepts like these that hurt people's feelings.

Of course, your statement has only a degree of truth to it.  Not the first part--it is utterly true, probably.  To some, it is heartless to deny the free exchange of products and criminal to limit one's potential by fiat because THAT would be heartless.  And then the final part is utterly false, probably, for left-wing extremeists believe themselves to be good persons by working to homogenize outcomes rather than opportunties......

Does that mean that hurting people's bodies - as opposed to feelings - is the domain of left wing extremists? Come to think of it, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Hitler - all socialists, all murderers of millions.

Actually Hitler is an anti-socialist Eugenicist (can't ever be both at the same time, eugenics and socialist) and Mao is a central-control communist (which is not socialist).

Pol Pot is a puppet warlord propped up by the USA to hit Cambodia for no good reason at all but "prevention" of "Communism"

Stalin is a right-wing Fascist, no left-wing to speak of there. Not a drop of it.

But...I don't understand why anyone associates elitist socialism in any of its forms - communism, progressivism, fascism, national socialism, liberalism, corporatism, etc. - with the "right wing". Clearly libertarians are not "left wing", and if you do not understand why one would equate them with the "right wing", just where on the (stupid) left-right scale would you put them? Off in left field?

President Obama:

The truth of the matter is that, as I said, we created 4.3 million jobs over the last 27 months, over 800,000 just this year alone.

The private sector is doing fine. Where we're seeing weaknesses in our economy have to do with state and local government.

This is a bad sign for Obama supporters, because offering $1000 to each person is exactly what George McGovern suggested in January, 1972 (give or take a month or two). The only reference I could find was this anti-McGovern ad from the 1972 campaign.

McGovern, of course, got swamped by Richard Nixon. As I watched the ad (I am old enough to have seen it on TV) I was reminded that flip-flopping by politicians is a gift that keeps on giving, even in this new millenium.

Adjusted for inflation, $1000 now is far less than it was in 1972, making Obama a world-class piker as far as promises go. I hope he decides soon: is he a reincarnation of Jimmy Carter or of George McGovern?

Rich people like Buffett and Dimon who give to Obama's campaign calling him up:

"What the FUCK are you doing?  Don't tell the people we are doing fine!  Tell them we need more tax breaks, stimulus, bailouts, and QE3!"

Tell buffet to wake   the     fuck      up.    ZIRP  is QE!!!  No interest means no cost for capital creation you bath-tub prognosticating moron.  What is even better is negative bond yields means bond holders are actually paying the givernment and financial fucks (a.k.a. the FED and all CBs) to PRINT.

All your 401k is belong to us!

In another strange coincidence, the backers of Romney's campaign are the same entities, corporations, and financiers that got Obama elected in 2008.   

Got physical?  You better, because I don't see Romeny letting any banks or financial "job creators" on wall street go bust and with negative interest rates on bonds not far off (already on TIPS) the people's retirement plans are paying off that debt.  FAIL.

This is SOP,been this way for every election since I have been around, and thats a lot.

To put it a better way, its CYA, and they are doing it to both parties.

Bank it.

But trust me... the economy WILL be fine if we just spend more money today in exchange for a "glide path" toward less spending tomorrow.

The end of the world is near... The ten plagues of Pharaoh “have been brought upon” the USA.

From the Wall Street Crash of 1929 to the Global Financial Crisis of 2007


It is the absolute tragedy for the USA. The former illegal immigrants had become the masters of their land; the ultimate masters. The people who wanted to collaborate with the Jews to become “Pharaohs” had the same bad luck. The greedy “locust” of the Asiatic desert swapped the USA and left absolutely nothing standing. The formerly rich people of the New World have been drained of their money to such a degree that they have passed the point of poverty and are headed towards starvation. The Americans now experience desperation and trust in God. Poor and hungry people gather around the fire to warm and cast their eyes up to heaven as their last hope. These are the former planet leaders...

Yeah, maybe he can strengthen it with another free trade deal with Nepal, Angola, or whatever god forsaken hell hole is lined up to take American jobs.

These "slips" and "tells" are going to become so common that even a moron could see we are doomed. Peeps, you'd better get ready. The big O just said" "American can withstand shocks from Europe". and "Greece will need to endure more pain.", and "American will support Europe." Official denial. Now you know 1) Europe is failing soon, 2) American will be stuffed by same, 3) Greece is the ignition point and 4) Its every economy for itself...

It's good strategy for Obama himself to highlight the lousy economy, as it blunts Romney's message.  Mitten's attacks will sound like whiny, old news. Watch, it will be Obama running against Wall Street, turning the tables on Mitt, even though Obama will receive record amounts of FRN's from that den of thieves.
