For some reason, when I saw this pic, I got the music and lyrics to … Oh when the saints, oh when the saints come marching in… in my head, and now it is stuck.
It was at Business Insider, to accompany this. A recipe for success fer sur. I trust them to do right by us….
His surrogates are done, and now Obama is talking on this morning’s frustrating jobs report. His spin — which is as simple as possible — is that we’ve now had 7 straight months of private sector job creation. So that’s something.
But he’s acknowledging the need to do more, and his first example of doing more is spending more money to bail out the states, notably the $26.1 billion allocated by the Senate to bail out Medicare and education funds. [uh… that is where they TOOK from Food Stamps! – Mcat]
Up next he wants a jobs bill to help small businesses, including one that focuses on going to a more green society.
uh, “green”.. right. I just read that Italy is outstripping us, moving speedily to change systems, incorporate green methods and practices.
It is probably because we are so slow. And disjointed in all that we do….
Because here, it is spin and PR and hoopla and bullshit. Pom poms and marching bands and hip pretzel, pretzel consort… and we sink and sink and sink…
BTW, the beaches were given an extra-special, super-dooper cleaning … um… and those would be beaches in Mallorca, for the pretzel consort.
