Lickety-Split Links (102809, Morning)

Filed under: Lucid Links — Tom @ 8:26 am

We obviously don’t appreciate what Dear Leader is doing for us (the link’s headline and text have since been modified):

We’re just supposed to be happy that the economy is probably growing, though jobs are still going away. I suspect we’ll learn tomorrow at 8:30 a.m. that the government’s portion of Gross Domestic Product is what’s doing most or all of the growing.

This (saved here in graphic form) must all be some kind of misunderstanding …. right? Note at the very bottom of the story that it is purportedly from the Associated Press.

I’m also sure that Barney Frank didn’t really-really mean it when he said the following on MSNBC:

Relevant portion of transcript (at the 1:00 mark):

Frank: …. The right wing took control of the government and ruined it. They gave it a bad reputation. Now that we are trying on every front to increase the role of government in the regulatory area, we run into this public opinion that says, “Hey, those are the guys who screwed up Katrina.” So the frustration is that they’re benefitting from their own incompetence.

It’s frankly too bad for Mr. Frank that his revisionist history is a load of rubbish. We haven’t had a “right wing-controlled government” since about 1991, when Bush 41 abandoned his “no new taxes” pledge. Proof that Bush 43′s was not a “right wing-controlled government” is here.
