Because it’s not as believable as real life. Real life is actually more absurd - News Busters
I don’t watch a lot of TV news. I don’t watch cable at all,” [Obama] said, very unconvincingly. “I like The Daily Show, so sometimes if I’m home late at night, I’ll catch snippets of that. I think Jon Stewart’s brilliant. It’s amazing to me the degree to which he’s able to cut through a bunch of the nonsense – for young people in particular, where I think he ends up having more credibility than a lot of more conventional news programs do.”
You know, this really DOES explain a lot. The surprise – no, SHOCK – that the consequences of his policies weren’t working the way the alchemy, I mean, economics professors and NY Times Nobel prize winners said they would. Really, Krugman in the NY Times is way more credible than say, the unemployment statistics, the shovel ready jobs that weren’t (due to their own regulations!!!), TARP…
The dramatic $700 billion bailout of U.S. banks calmed markets and helped stabilize the financial system, but that doesn’t mean taxpayers will see any direct returns from the investment. The Treasury says the Troubled Asset Relief Program might turn a profit. But the agency’s fuzzy math wouldn’t fly with any sensible portfolio manager. What it calls a gain looks more like a loss of at least $230 billion.
“Ala h amora” & what was a sunk cost now floats in the air – generating a PROFIT!!!
Don’t forget the potential of “new economy green jobs” ….at Hot Air
Besides pressing Congress to pass legislation to codify Interior reforms that would “make drilling safer” and implement an agreement with Mexico to oversee drilling in the Gulf (which sure sounds like still more impediments to the oil and gas industry to me), Salazar requested Congress make tax credits for renewable energy permanent and require that America’s electricity be generated from low-carbon sources, which would supposedly ‘bring billions of dollars in capital off the sidelines and into the clean energy frontier.’
Ever notice in the Harry Potter plots, the allies turned out to be often not really on the protagonists’ side, and the supposed enemies like Snape turned out to be the protectors?
Not sayin, but I’m just sayin….
