Some quick hits from the news today.
“I’m sure there are days where I say that one term is enough,’’ Obama said.
We have those days, too, Mr. President. We call them Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
“What keeps me going is a belief that the work that we started in 2009 is not yet complete.”
Of course. The destruction is still not complete. The debt could be even higher. There are still allies to turn our backs on, and still more enemies to embrace. There is still more regulation to enact by going around Congress. There is still room to push energy prices higher. There are still more budgets for your party not to pass. There are still more guns for your administration to smuggle into Mexico and foreign leaders to bow to. So much work to do…
Actually, the president thinks his economic policies would have worked, were it not for those confounded…ATM machines.
President Obama explained to NBC News that the reason companies aren’t hiring are not because of his policies, it’s because the economy is so automated. . . . “There are some structural issues with our economy where a lot of businesses have learned to become much more efficient with a lot fewer workers. You see it when you go to a bank and you use an ATM, you don’t go to a bank teller, or you go to the airport and you’re using a kiosk instead of checking in at the gate.
You know what else is killing his economic policies? Newspaper machines. Parking meters. Those horrible pop machines. And worst of all…gumball machines! Seriously, how is a gumball salesman supposed to compete with those things?
