Okay, I called this a couple of days ago when I posted this. I think people thought I was kidding. I wasn’t. I truly believe that it is quite possible that Hillary Clinton could easily challenge Obama in 2012. I believe those who supported her then, would support her now. Plus, many who supported Obama in 2008 would seriously consider giving her their support today.
“So far she hasn’t said she would, but I think it’s not a bad idea,” former Vice President Dick Cheney told ABC’s Jonathan Karl in an interview on Wednesday to promote his new book “In My Time.”
Cheney declined to say whether he thought the current Secretary of State would have been a better president than Barack Obama, but called her a “pretty formidable individual.”
“I think she’s probably the most competent person they’ve got in their– in their cabinet. And– frankly, I thought she was gonna win the nomination last time around,” Cheney said. “Maybe if– the Obama record is bad enough– and these days it’s not very good, given the shape of the economy maybe there will be enough ferment– in the Democratic Party so that there will be a primary on their side.”
Answer this question as quickly as you can — don’t think about it: If Fester raises the price of his lemonade, will you buy more of it, or less? Yeah, that’s what I thought.
Incredibly, Professor Alan Krueger thinks just the opposite, at least when it comes to hiring labor. Professor who, you ask? You know, President Øbama’s proposed chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors — the administration’s chief economist. Yeah, that guy! But here’s the problem, see. As Spengler points out, Krueger hasn’t the foggiest idea how jobs are actually created:
Anyways … Fester was puzzled (and a little sad) when President Obama tossed Carney’s semi-official pronouncement aside and promised yet anotherspeech about how the White House was going to unfurl yet anotherplan to … create jobs.
