I agree with my senator Nelson (this time) that the gobble-gook coming out of the Obama team on the economy is very discouraging.

1.  Businesses don’t need credit if they have no customers.
2.  People don’t need tax credits, they need to keep their homes.
3.  The economy will not be “stimulated”, it will correct itself from overstimulation, hurting a lot of people in the process.
4.  It is wrong to give any more money without accounting for the money already given. The entire country agrees with this.
5.  Developers should be prohibited from any money since they are part of the problem.
6.  The most successful jobs program recently was Jimmy Carter’s CETA program, not the New Deal. If he could just do that, millions would be back to work and the economy would improve in the proper manner, not artificially, setting it up for a further collapse.
What is going on with Obama? All of a sudden he doesn’t have a clue. What about all that talk about “getting it right”? All of a sudden its all wrong.
