Oh Dear: American Crossroads Pounces On Obama's "Shovel Ready" Gaffe

At Verum Serum, with commentary, and also below, because it's sweet like sugar.

Also below, a similarly-themed ad pulled from Hot Air, featuring Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, who's like my perfect woman: dumb as a chicken, but not very attractive, because I don't need that hard-to-get "self respect" jazz, either.

The good news is those ads are effective.

The bad news is those ads are effective because they're accurate, and we are in for it.

The excellent Suitably Flip has a prediction you don't want to come true:

Core is up 1.5% year-over-year, which is still awfully low. Headline inflation was up 3.6% from a year ago. You’ll be hearing about stagflation this morning, probably, whether real or not.

And on and on. Builder confidence in the housing market declined 3 points. Flip:

That leaves the [Housing Market Index] tied (with the depths of "Recovery Summer") for its worst post-recession level and lends further support to the double triple dip thesis.

I am getting the same feeling I got when those Weiner pics came out-- stop the fight. Call it, ref.

I know I keep saying this, but I did start saying, in mid-2009, that if the economy does not get better, I do not think Barack Obama will seek reelection.

The argument I always get is "ego." To which I rebut: "Ego."

"I lost" =/= "I won."

Oh, and still more. Walter Russell Meade now says the second term of Jimmy Carter is a best-case scenario.

The actual employment rate -- the fraction of working individuals compared to the whole of the population -- remains stuck at an abnormal low.

Oh, and the stock market might dive again, too.

I know it had lost 1% today. I think they mean more than that.
