Barack dragged scowling Medusa back from another weeks long vacation today. Hillary Clinton is also on vacation. The only one on stage, with a sense of urgency, during the Black Monday meltdown is Donald Trump.
This morning, before the stock markets on Wall Street opened, there was Donald Trump on TV speaking with urgency about the economic plight of the American People. Trump denounced hedge fund managers and added to his years long warnings about China. Yes, you read that right. Billionaire Donald Trump denounced hedge fund managers as parasites who unlike him built nothing.
Hillary? Obama? Biden? MIA.
In the first half hour of opening the markets spectacularly followed up the 350 point loss from Thursday and the 530 point loss from Friday. At one point the plunge was over 1,000 points and after violent ups and downs the market closed 588 points lower.
The big losers today were not to be found on Wall Street however. The big losers today are Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton. Once again, Donald Trump is the winner of the entire week.
Anyone or anything associated with Barack Obama is today’s big loser, again. The Obama economy and the stink of Barack Obama will knock out any presidential candidate who defends Barack Obama economic policy in any way. The Associated Press decorates the funeral parlor:
AP survey: Dimmer outlook for US economy, wages and hiring
For much of the economy’s fitful and sluggish six-year recovery from the Great Recession, analysts have foreseen a sunnier future: Growth would pick up in six months, or in a year.
That was then.
The latest Associated Press survey of leading economists shows that most now foresee a weaker expansion than they had earlier. A majority of the nearly three dozen who responded to the survey predict tepid economic growth, weak pay gains and modest hiring for the next two years at least.
“We no longer have reason for optimism that the economy is going to accelerate,” said Mike Englund, chief economist at Action Economics. “The real question is, when is the next downturn coming?”
The “next two years,” no “reason for optimism,” “when is the next downturn coming?” is a frightening place for a presidential candidate who wants to be an Obama “third term” or even associated with Obama the boob.
Was this predictable? Well we certainly have written repeatedly about this. Why? Because we know enough to not expect much from a boob other than boobery. A boob is a boob. The only thing to expect from a boob is that he will boob and boob again. If a boob says he will fix the economy expect the economy to be dismantled. If a boob says he will fix relationships with the Muslim world expect more terrorism and havoc. Whatever a boob says he will do, expect the opposite. This is not a complex formulation.
So why did Hillary2016 ever think that association with a boob was a good idea? In 2013, before the birth of Hillary2016, we wrote about how Joe Biden would run for president as the Obama third term, and we provided smart warnings to Hillary Clinton:
Is the Hillary Clinton 2016 rationale the same as Joe Biden’s reason to run? Ol’ Joe will go to the electorate and say things are going so well and so on track “we must stay the course!” [snip]
Republicans and the Republican 2016 candidate? Republicans will reason with the electorate and say things are off track and it is “time for a change!”.
Hillary Clinton 2016? Is it “time for a change”? Or is it “stay the course”. Thus far, it is mush. [snip]
Hillary Clinton should position herself as the candidate of “CHANGE!”. Repeat the positions taken in 2008 and note how wise that course would have been. Declare it is “time for a change” to effective leadership and unite the white working class with her campaign for change. Let Joe Biden be the “stay the course” candidate aboard the Titanic. Hillary Clinton 2016 could easily be the lot less scary candidate of “time for a change” which is the default on every Republican 2016 bumper sticker. But cutesie-wutsie won’t get the gold. Yet that muddled message mess is the course Hillary Clinton 2016 is on.
The hideous “stay the course” strategy Hillary2016 grabbed onto leads to days of reckoning like today.
It’s time for complete and total change from the horror house that is Obama.
It’s time for complete and total change – but #Hillary2016 is deaf, dumb, and blind, to reality.
It’s time for complete and total change – but Hillary haters who control the DNC think the key should be to go from Boob Barack to Bumbling Joe. Leftist Kook Hillary Haters think the Hillary2016 hole is not big enough. Their solution is to dig deeper and deeper until they get to the lowest bottom – and unearth Joe Biden. The Hillary2016 frying pan strategy is not bad enough. These Kooks want to leap into the fire with drunken Joe.
It’s time for complete and total change – but Hillary2016 is dead to reality. The Kooks in control of the party think the savior strategy is to pour cologne over the drunk, try to sober him up, and say, “Hey Joe, want to be our pawn and a sure loser?”
It’s time for complete and total change – only billionaire Donald Trump urgently understands.
