My post on the employment situation had some busts in it that I’ve fixed. But that episode and the less-than-perfect performance accompanying it have made it clear that I need to step away from the computer long enough to get over a bout of illness, which I will do until probably the middle of this evening.

I (sort of) have an excuse. What’s Harry Reid’s?

  1. And now a word from Captain Obvious or Oblivious or Obtuse… Barney Frank speaks:

    When did the moron wake up to this fact? Was that before or after he “rolled the dice” (Frank’s own words) with other people’s money?

    If Mr. Clueless has just caught on to the FMs holding subprime mortgages being a dicey financial investment, then tell us when the bottom is going to fall out. That huge thump you are going to hear is the size 20 shoe of the FMs being bailed out again and thousands of investors losing their shirts.

Besides the fact that Obama arrogantly and incorrectly assumes anything slightly positive is the result of his “policies” and not say individual or private group effort the only reason the numbers came in “better than expected” which in politico speak is a way of saying “not as bad as it could be” was that many of the prognosticators were making ridiculously high assumptions based on high lining the effects of the winter storms.
