Stop Talking!!!

Well, the stock market started off in optimistic fashion this morning, but we are tanking now. Who is the one person who could possibly be moving markets at this very moment with words of import and consequence? Yep.

UPDATE: A few weeks ago, when he purported to talk about Iraq, he talked about the economy and pundits rightly analyzed it thusly: he doesn't care about Iraq. So today he is purportedly to talk about the eceonomy and he talks about the Ground Zero Mosque. Are we to conclude that he doesn't care about the economy? Who knows, but the obvious takeaway for most Americans is this: he can't focus and he's blaming others, so he is not interested in being accountable. Bad combo. Again, this is our smart-as-a-whip President? Still not seeing it.

Of course you had this exactly right. But note that in the cited article AP got it exactly wrong,

Facing the possibility of a GOP blowout in November, Obama insisted again that Bush-era tax cuts be extended for individuals earning over $200,000 a year and joint filers earning over $250,000. All the tax cuts are due to expire at the end of this year unless Congress acts.

...He said extending tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans "is a bad idea."

Of course, if he actually was in favor of reducing taxes on capital and America's risk takers and high achievers, he might not be facing an electoral debacle in two months.
