Morning News Updates

Don't miss Melissa Clouthier's morning roundup, "A Round-Up of News to Make Your Blood Boil":
... for some reason, this story irritates me the worst. The moderates, independents, libertarians, RINOs, and trend-followers (but I repeat myself) who voted for Barack Obama are wiggling around like live bugs pinned to card-board. The latest entre is from someone I respect, but her latest post is really hard to take. Megan McArdle absolves President Obama saying, essentially, that there's nothing he can do or could have done to help the economy. Au contraire. Nothing is something he could have done and would have better than what he did do.

Instead, the great meddler, the Man Who Knows Everything, well, he's made everything worse. And it is going to get worse. You do not rape the private sector, leaving her terrified and shivering in the corner, and expect her to enjoy the company of men again and start cranking out babies any time soon. The private sector is paralyzed. They see taxation looming and cower. They see huge new commitments to workers and tremble. And that was the President's doing. His. And the leftist loons in Congress. But hey, credit where credit is due.

Say it with me lefties and weak middle of the roaders: It's Obama's Fault. Get used to it, because his actions are going to harm us for a long time.

And of course, I'll be on the lookout for the slightest inking of remorse regarding the left's rush to judgment on the New York cabbie attack.

Shivering in the corner aptly describes the condition of the private sector.
