Obama Supporter Sachs Says President Has No Plan
Ouch… the hits keep coming.
Economist Jeffrey Sachs slammed President Obama on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday.
“We’re almost three years into this administration, and there’s never been a plan. And that’s what everybody feels. And the president didn’t lead. He waited. The quintessential image, sadly, of an administration that I supported and hoped for much better, is the president waiting by the phone to hear what Congress calls to tell him. It doesn’t work in this country that way.
The problem is, there never was a Plan B. This group of ivory-tower pointy-heads came in convinced that their theories would turn the nation around, their theories consisting of “spend, tax, regulate; spend, tax, regulate; repeat as needed.” Unfortunately for Obama and his Ivy League colleagues, the real world doesn’t always work exactly like as pretty theories on paper say it will.
So now they have nothing to fall back on… their brilliant theories have been completely discredited by absolute failure, and worse than that, they’ve even made the original situation worse. They are incapable of admitting that, much less using other theories (like, say, cutting taxes and spending, and slashing regulations so that businesses actually have the money to hire people).
I think I can predict that Obama’s big speech next month is going to be more of the same rostrums we’ve already heard. It’ll be about half “tax and spend, spend and tax, and don’t forget regulations” and half “this isn’t our fault, it’s the fault of Boooooooosh, the Republicans, the mailman who lost my Christmas present when I was 6, etc.”
