How about a Google search for ‘truth’

Since the last election, I have been called a racist, a hate monger, a communist, and a right wing extremist because I fail to recognize that the “enlightened one” has arrived at Pennsylvania Avenue. Sorry, but I don’t recognize my country anymore. Must be all of the transparency!

Larry Summers, Obama’s top economic advisor, sees some strong evidence that the economy is out of free fall. According to Summers, it’s all over. I’m guessing that we can slow down on universal healthcare because everything’s looking up. We can take our time.

Joe Biden is feeling positively giddy as well after visiting Ohio where their unemployment rate is 11.1 percent.

I was in Virginia last week visiting my mother. During that time, the vice president was in Richmond, Va., where the unemployment rate has nearly doubled in the last year, and he had this to say: “Those who say that our economic decisions have not produced jobs, have not produced and simply not worked, I say take a look around.” Mr. Vice President, with all due respect, you need to shut your pie hole.

The vice president has a good reason to be excited about the economy. After all, America only lost 467,000 jobs last month and the national unemployment rate is the highest it’s been in 26 years at 9.5 percent. In total, about 2 million jobs have been lost since the stimulus bill was signed. That’s about 13,000 jobs lost per day.

But we don’t know how many jobs he saved. So it might all balance out in the end.

So, back to the “strong evidence” that the economy is turning around; my apologies if the following has too much “financial lingo” for the average person to understand (but this is really good news).

Summers says the recent decrease in Google searches for “economic depression” are down to normal levels. Yes, that is correct, and Summers is a top economic advisor. This is what the brilliant, the intellectual, the big thinkers in the Obama camp have come up with, the Google search. Let’s tie everything into the Internet. The same Internet which suggested that Ron Paul was going to win the last presidential election.

If you are by a computer today, you might want to just Google search the term “economic depression.” In fact, do it right now. Tell everybody you know to do the same thing. Google “economic depression” over and over and over again just so we can send a message to the White House, “I don’t think you got it fixed, Larry.”
