Brilliant author of the day: Stuart Stevens
Stuart Stevens, writing at the Daily Beast, wins the brilliant article of the day award. Why? For pointing out a massive media fail as it concerns a massive presidential fail, Barack Obama.
Or in other words, the interminable Obama “recovery” has been far worse than the Bush “recession.” (‘Unexpectedly’ as the traditional media might say.)
Today, 21 and a half million Americans are unemployed or underemployed—about twice as many as six years ago…
Work-force participation, a fancy term for the number of Americans either working or looking for work, has dropped to “the lowest level since the [Carter-induced] malaise of the late 1970’s,” an era when far fewer women were working…
More than 16 million Americans have been added to the food stamps rolls since Barack Obama was first elected—a 46 percent increase and greater than the population of Ohio. More than 50 million Americans now live in poverty.
…seven out of the ten wealthiest counties in America are now in the Washington, D.C. area.
Even though Stevens was part of the Romney campaign, facts are pesky things.
Except for the traditional media; then facts can be ignored (provided it benefits the President’s agenda). After all, all writing is autobiographical and all that. Kudos to the Daily Beast for providing Stevens a forum.
