You’re wrong, Mister President. The economy is fine. Why backpedal? Why clarify? Do you really need David Axelrod on CNN tap dancing? David Axelrod has no rhythm. And what’s with the mustache? Seriously.
Try going the other way, Mister President. Try leaning-in.
In case you haven’t noticed, being in the bubble, this is an election year. It’s clear to those of us out here, rolling our eyes at those of you in the bubble. It’s absolutely clear: “The Economy is Fine, Stupid.”
We’ve seen it going on for almost 4-years. We know what’s going on. We can’t be duped, not even by clever spin sold in Newsrooms by expensive liars.
Republicans are determined to undermine everything, so they can run on the easiest possible talking point: “The Economy Is Not Doing Fine, Stupid!”
Until both parties stop the endless campaigning, and get down to the actual business of governing, the economy will continue to move at the speed of dial-up access.
