Lapdog Headline of the Day

In a CNNMoney.com email just received:

– Stocks just keep tumbling: The Dow is now down over 300 points on concerns about oil, Europe and global economy.

But of course, the U.S. stock market never, ever goes down during the Obama administration because of domestic factors.

You can almost write it down: If there is an economic slowdown and they can’t blame it on the weather, they’ll blame it on the rest of the world.

What a bunch of tools.
