Skip to comments.Obama aides change their rhetoric on economy (The two faces of the Obama Regime)
Posted on 03/15/2009 9:58:40 AM PDT by NormsRevenge
WASHINGTON One of President Barack Obama's economic advisers said Sunday that the economy is fundamentally sound, a striking reversal from the Democrat's campaign rhetoric as his administration now guides the nation's financial health amid dire conditions.
Obama's Democratic allies pleaded for patience for an administration hitting the two-month mark this week, while Republicans said the White House's plans ignore small business and the immediate need to fix what ails the economy.
During the fall campaign, Obama mercilessly mocked his Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain, for declaring, "The fundamentals of our economy are strong." Obama's team painted the veteran senator as out of touch and failing to grasp the challenges facing the country.
On Sunday, economic adviser Christina Romer was asked during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" if the fundamentals of the economy were sound. "Of course they are sound," she replied.

Lie when necessary
Lie when it isn't.
i noticed this change.
their sycophant media stopped the whine and raised the praise.
Mac was entirely correct saying that fundamentals are strong - they are diverse and educated workforce, economy that is not dependent on some particular sector, etc. People tend to confuse fundamentals with ups and downs. The roof that leaks does not mean that the basement crumbles.
This is war room bullsh t. Since the bombies had egg on their faces over the stock market crash since election, they were dreaming of a rally to take credit for, and the present bounce was just the ticket.
And the MSM just went, “See? The policies are working!” The MSM are just so hip.
The Commie ‘RATS intentionally sent the U.S. economy into a flat spin and can’t pull it out. All they can do now is lie, point fingers and hope for the best. It’s not working out like they planned. DemocRAT ideas never do.
Politics is politics! The sky is falling unless the President’s spending bill is passed. Afterward it’s “Oops, my bad”.
I was surprised to hear both John King and David Gregory raise this issue today concerning the fundamentals of the economy being sound in March 2009, but not back in September 2008 when McCain made the same remark. It was fun seeing Christina Romer run around in circles attempting to defend Obama’s two-faced policy. Still, the liberal establishment remains in full cover mode for Obama’s leftist agenda and that isn’t about to change anytime soon.
The List, ping
"The power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them....To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies all this is indispensably necessary. Even in using the word doublethink it is necessary to exercise doublethink. For by using the word one admits that one is tampering with reality; by a fresh act of doublethink one erases this knowledge; and so on indefinitely, with the lie always one leap ahead of the truth."
I don’t think Christina Romer is gonna be around for long. She just comes across as someone’s jolly aunt who’s always about ready to burst out laughing. She looks like she’d be fun to work with, though. I can see her at five o’clock, “Who wants to go out for pizza?”
Well, Christina Romer is no Harry Von Zell. The Burns and Allen Show was great fun. What do I win?
Oh, I see.
They did; but they don’t want to pull it out.
Usually, on these abrupt “turn-arounds” on issues, one has to always follow the money trail. The Rats but the economy into a dive to further aid and abet their communist/marxist agenda. The problem was that the diving economy started affecting their big donors’ pocketbooks and the Rats kinda got the message. So now, the economic collapse has been “cancelled” this week. Nothing to see here...move along.
These clowns are something to behold.
