I guess the point of this thread is to point out the crappy economy?
I mean, I know that usually, you post anything good, true or not, about the economy.
AM talk does this, too. They announced that jobs were up, and did it with a smirk. Then the actual news came on and said "...uh, jobs are down."
Same with the Bush press conference from the other day, when he didn't realize that gas was going up to $4. He said that we are NOT headed for a recession. Then the news came on, right after it was over, and said "we're heading for a recession."
Nobody wants to be wrong, two times in a row. I get that. But how long can the charade go on, of trying to prove that Bush was a competent president? I mean, time will tell, that's true. Reagan had a low approval rating until he was out of office, then his post-approval rating skyrocketed.
Maybe we'll look back, 40 years from now, when we're still in Iraq, and say "man... Bush was right!"
But I wouldn't put money on it.
