"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Obama Declares Stimulus Successful as Unemployment Reaches 26 Year High

Obama is so lost and in over his head. I would almost feel sorry for him if he didn't regularly exhibit such Mussolini-like arrogance. Instead, I just feel sorry for us duped Americans.

While Obama strides about like a preacher and rather testily declares (brief video here h/t Pundit & Pundette and read their take on this) that the Recovery Act has "done its job," the nation's jobless rate has risen to 9.5%-- a 26 year high per the AP.

My favorite Obama lines: "Don't let people fool you with this notion that somehow the reason for our deficit has to do with-- for example the Recovery Act." And then "It's [presumably the Recovery Act] a tiny fraction of our long-term deficit projections."

Hilarious. The Recovery Act is just the beginning of our projected deficits. But it's Bush's fault-- or something. Greed... that's it! Unbridled corporate greed has caused these long-term deficit projections.

Obama seems like he's completely out of his depth and he appears genuinely surprised that he can't handle things very well. I guess cocky arrogance and self-declared audacity isn't quite enough to be president. Go figure.
