Following up on the addendum to the post below, I see Murphy has the following brilliant insight on tonight’s press conference.
““It is only government that can break the vicious cycle where lost jobs lead to people spending less money which leads to even more layoffs,” he said. “and breaking that cycle is exactly what the plan that’s moving through Congress is designed to do.””
color me skeptical.
it’s too little, too late, and too diffuse — and people are worried and distrustful — the age of thrift is upon us and there aint nothin a muddled stimulus bill can do about it.
what an amateur.
After spending two weeks screeching (yes dear, screeching) about the size of the stimulus bill, encouraging all her devotees to call congress to oppose it, murphy’s reaction is “too little, too late, too diffuse?”
Are you fucking kidding me?
Too little? I guess murphy must have realized that the pumatards over at the confluence have been pretending to agree with Paul Krugman that the stimulus should have been larger (a position I’m sympathetic to). Is she still pretending to be a liberal? And too late? I certainly don’t remember her saying this should pass more quickly. In fact, I remember the exact opposite. Too diffuse? Well I guess she couldn’t think of a third aspect in which the the bill was lacking. Is she really suggesting that spending $800 billion on fewer projects would have been more economically efficient? Diminishing returns murphy, diminishing returns. She wasn’t really saying that though, she just wanted a third adjective.
What. a. fucking. moron.
Oh, look, more comment win!

In this case, my thinking is that this is the real reason by moving the authority over the Census to the White House.
Earlier, someone referred to ACORN as the new iteration of the Black Panthers. I can’t prove it, but my suspicion is that ACORN is really a front name for Obama’s “Civilian Army”.
Yeah, or Obama nominated a conservative republican to head the commerce department and liberal and minority groups don’t want him to undermine the integrity of the count for partisan purposes. It has to do with statistical sampling methods. I could explain it, but you wouldn’t get it.
Hey look! Njima has a basic understanding of what’s going on!
Teh One has a press conference because he wants his bill passed. He’s going to be back in Illinois tomorrow trying to sell it.
It’s a start, I guess. She must have just finished watching some schoolhouse rock.
There’s probably all sorts of win over there right now. Share your favorites.
