Stephen Green uses a few Drudge headlines to make some good points, though I do wish he weren’t so wishy-washy about the whole thing:
The Obama people are the ones making it worse, those stupid idiot dumb-dumbs. What with the printing of the money, the driving up of the interest rates, and the impending raising of the taxes.
Look. When you hire an employee, you’re betting on the future. You’re betting your own money that there will be enough new business to justify your new hire. And to put a human face on it, you’re making a commitment to another human being who will be counting on the power of your judgement to put food on his table.
Are you going to take that risk and make that commitment when the dumb-dumbs are in charge?

Let’s pretend for a moment that, god forbid, you break your arm. And somehow you end up with a team of doctors all trained at Obama University. As you lie there on the table in the ER, one doctor treats your arm by banging on the unbroken one with a ball-peen hammer. The second doctor takes the unusual course of setting your hair on fire. And the third one uses leaches.
Undeterred by your arm’s stubborn refusal to set, soon the doctors start blaming one another. And even though all of them are doing nothing but compounding your injury, none will take any blame. In fact, the louder you scream, the harder they go to work on you.
I just hope the patient survives.
