Clueless On Economics

by George Landrith - October 15th, 2008 - Human Events

Barack Obama has proven over and over again that he just doesn't get it when it comes to the economy. During the summer, his energy plan was to adamantly oppose domestic drilling and -- instead -- to hand out tire gauges to make sure everyone had their tires inflated to the right level.

Here are Obama's own words. “There are things you can do individually, though, to save energy,” Obama said. “Making sure your tires are properly inflated -- simple thing. But we could save all the oil that they're talking about getting off drilling -- if everybody was just inflating their tires. And getting regular tune-ups. You'd actually save just as much!” That stands as one of the most stunningly stupid presidential policy pronouncements in modern history.

What would be amusing (if it was not indicative of a serious conspiracy of evil) is the MSM allowing him to claim he was quoted out of context. He was not. Again and again Barack Obama has made statements that are simply ignorant. The press ignores them and even berates anyone who dares to point out the stupidity. It is not just that Obama is clueless on economics. Obama is clueless on so many issues. This would become obvious if he did not have a subservient press cleaning up his mistakes.
