Posted on 11/02/2007 7:17:13 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
Talk about talking down the economy! No fewer than three times today, Matt Lauer invited Barack Obama to declare that the U.S. economy is headed into recession. At the end of a "Today" interview that focused largely on Hillary-related issues and Iran, Lauer turned to the economy and pressed Obama to predict the worst.

Talkin’ the economy down ping to Today show list.
I think Matt Lauer’s a poopyhead. (Hope that doesn’t get me banned!)
I’m so sick of the MSM types manipulating/trying to manipulate the news. Funny that Matty couldn’t pin Ubama down! :-)
I’m off to shop now! [waves]
Whenever I want a detailed explanation of the US economy, I turn to Barack Oblama.
Yeah, who needs Larry Kudlow when we have Barack?
It’s safe to say that the economy is headed for recession, the only question is when.
Hey Barack. 166K more jobs added today. Nice.
Great point. By the same token, I can say with certainty that it’s going to rain ;-)
and when someone asks you the time, you can safely say it’s going on midnight.
Who is this “Barack Oblama” of whom you speak. Is it possibly the candidate calling himself Barack Oblabba?
What a change from the Klinton era where the liberal MSM talked up the economy night and day.
He must have recorded that before the October 166,000 new jobs report came out.
I think he was in Sly & the Family Stone’s road band.
Higher than expected job growth belies your magisterial pronouncement.
According to several surveys of public opinion I track, a plurality of people believe we are in a recession. Not far behind is the percentage of people who believe in UFOs.
so your saying the economy will never see a recession?
I can’t stand to watch Lauer no matter what he’s doing. He is the epitome of smarmyness, and my stomach turns whenever I see him on the tube.
Matt’s wife is emaciated. It’s scary. (lots of tabloid reading at beauty shop yesterday)
I thought I recognized that voice. He must be the one who sings the line “I’m gonna add some bottom,
so that the dancers just won’t hide” in the song “Dance to the Music.”
