Geithner: Sucks to be You, America

That, at any rate, is my loose translation – from the AP:

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says many Americans will face hard times for a long time to come.

He says President Barack Obama rescued the United States from a second Great Depression and will keep working to strengthen the economy. But Geithner says will be some time before many people feel like the country is recovering.

Geithner tells NBC’s “Meet the Press” that it’s a very tough economy. He says that for a lot of people “it’s going to feel very hard, harder than anything they’ve experienced in their lifetime now, for a long time to come.”

Staying loyal to his boss but also getting a little attack of the truth – it is absurd to think that Obama staved off the Great Depression because we’re still in it, it is just that the official (and manipulated) statistics don’t show it.  But we, the people, sure as heck feel it.  But it is almost refreshing to get a bit of honesty out of the Obama Administration – this will, indeed, be very hard to deal with.  But it doesn’t really have to go on for a “long time”.  We can cut the nightmare short in November of 2012.

    timmy the tax cheat: “He says President Barack Obama rescued the United States from a second Great Depression and will keep working to strengthen the economy.”

    Really? Perhaps he should check with his boss first!!!

    obAMATEUR has said during the stimulus plan debacle and just this past December that during a recession it would be bad to raise taxes.

    However, during this past debt ceiling “negotiation” he and the other looting Democrats are hell bent on raising taxes, especially on the so-called millionaires and billionaire (who make over 250K).

    So, why can’t he keep his story straight and pass along flawed talking points for the ignorant masses and useful idiot drones?

    To all conservatives. Let’s never forget the level of intelligence we are dealing with here with our current brand of liberals, and the depths that they will sink to, to retain power.

    MSNBC’s Martin Bashir on Monday wondered if Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum support “a return to the days of slavery” after the two GOP hopefuls signed a pledge on upholding traditional marriage.

    They are foaming their base as never before.

      the fact is the slavery never ended.
      It simply moved from the donk controlled KKK south,
      to the donk controlled innercities.
      so now sodomy = “slavery”?
      sounds the other way to me, sodomites = slaves to a perverted pathology.

    for a lot of people “it’s going to feel very hard, harder than anything they’ve experienced in their lifetime now, for a long time to come.”

    Wow. Can you imagine how hard it would be “for a lot of people” if Barry had NOT “rescued the United States from a second Great Depression”?

    I also like the careful parsing of words. Note that even Timmy is not claiming that Barry has “rescued the United States from a second Depression ” No, it is carefully qualified as a GREAT Depression.

    So if someone points out that we are in a depression, they can come back and say “Yeah, but it’s not a GREAT depression.

      Sorry about that—missed a key and ended up with a lot more bold than I had intended.

    I thought the entire post should have been in bold. Especially the part about Obama NOT rescuing us. This regime, and this media, are so dishonest it makes blood shoot from my eyes to listen to them. Since Pelosi took office, the debt has increased by 60%. 60% friggin percent, but no one is talking about that are they? No. We’re suppose to believe that Barry is a centrist.

    I don’t know how much more brain damage I can take. Are liberals really this stupid?

      Are liberals really this stupid?

      Evidently. Let’s see how many of them vote for more of the same in 2012.
