Or so you’d think from listening to them. Amazing the sort of power a man can hold without even having assumed the Presidency! Here’s a couple examples just to spruce up your morning:
– Drudge reject Bretibart goes all Post hoc ergo propter hoc and claims that since stocks are down 1200 points since Obama’s election… it’s almost as though institutional investors don’t believe his ideas will work. Conveniently ignoring the 4600 point slide, of course, since the day Bush took office- no, sir, eight years of failed economic policy, and an economy on which an entire two-thirds of it’s net worth is based on service/consumption industries? Nah. Totally blameless.
– David French at NRO relates a story of his little girl, who cries “Daddy, I heard that Barack Obama wants to bring all the troops home from Iraq, and that we might lose the war.” I understand, however, he left out the part in the article where she also says “Daddy, I also heard that he wants to restore the capital gains tax to pre-1990 levels, and that his universal health care plan is tantamount to socialism.”
Ahh, the next four years are gonna be lots of fun!
