Reading remarks by some Blues online, I remain fascinated by how presidential responsibility for things like the economy works.

1) The bubble-burst and recession that started before GWB took office was the Bush recession, of course.
2) The later severe downturn before the Obama election was all Bush's fault, too.
3) Obama was of course responsible for every fleeting moment of upturn until the economy actually recovered, which was of course also to his credit.
4) Obama is also, of course, responsible for the current economic upturn, two years after leaving office. This is apparently because of all the things he did that, according the Blues during his term, he was completely unable to do because of Republicans and the Constitution.
Look if we had just given Obama the one ring everything would've been fine.*

Don't you know that the President is solely, 100% responsible for the state of the economy? That means that if the economy is good, the President is smart and well-intentioned; if the economy is bad, it is because the President is stupid and evil. But the really amazing thing about this relationship is that it even works in reverse: if the President is stupid and evil, then the economy must be bad, and if the President is smart and good, then the economy must be good.

Cops came by yesterday to inspect the contents of the garbage dumpster next to my building -- more precisely, to investigate the two ATMs that somehow ended up there.

Technically the 2001 recession began in March, so it was after Bush took office. As for #4, it’s a continuation of the pre-2016 trend. There was a dip in growth in 2016, that is primarily due to the big drop in oil prices at the a few years after the US became a huge oil producer.

I saw a bumper sticker on my way home today that said "Prayer is our best defense against evil", which actually explains a lot about the state of the world.

I find a nice jacketed hollow point works better on a personal level, but it's inadequate for larger systemic issues.

One one hand, Fox News' livestream of the GHWB body dump was a gross morbid power-fellating jingoistic jerkoff. On the other hand, since it was literally a camera pointed at a car containing a box containing a corpse, it was probably the least dumb thing ever broadcast on Fox News.

So the Weekly Standard may get shut down, not because their traffic is down, but because they insufficiently fellate Trump. That explains what NR balances their measured criticism of Trump with the Victor Davis Hanson mescaline induced conspiracy theories and Andy McCarthy’s legal gymnastics.
