Obama's Economy: Sunshine and Roses at Last!

Yup! Not to worry, folks. Obamaland's economy is on the upswing!

By Obama's objective estimates, the economy of the People's Democratic Socialist Republic of America is on an upward trajectory. We've so much to crow about! Wowee! Break out the champagne!!! There's light at the end of the tunnel!!! Whoopee!!!

Regaling us with assurances that since his takeover in 2009 millions of jobs have been "saved" and the number of "created" jobs has been steadily increasing, the breathlessly exuberant Obamabot spinmeisters have been deftly persuading the essentially walking dead among us that Obama's profligate Keynesian top-to-bottom big government approach to recovery is working just splendidly. I mean, come on, folks. You'd have to be a hopelessly partisan dolt not to see the truth and join in the celebration.

Ah...just one tiny wrinkle in Obama's rosy take on the economy: it's ummitigated drivel. A lie!

This week, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projected that the budget deficit for 2012 wil hit $1.08T, the jobless rate for 2012 will climb to 8.9%, and in 2013 the unemployment rate will soar to 9.2%.

But, don't let that get you down. The gloom-and-doomers are always raining on our parade. I mean, come on. Whom do you trust? The CBO or Obama? Obviously, the CBO folks are vile racists in the bag for the GOP. Conspiracists, each and every one. They can't be trusted.

And let's not forget Obama's winning toothy smile, his impeccable teleprompter skills and his engaging, polished manner. Afterall, let's remember that Obama wants nothing more than to make sure everyone equally shares in this country's bounty. No filthy rich, no poor. Like, what could possibly be wrong with that?

The only sensible way forward is for us to "collectively" and faithfully put our trust, our hopes, our lives and our fortunes in Obama's hands. He'll take care of us.
