Larry Summers, the top White House economic adviser appeared Sunday on ABC’s ”This Week” and informed the nation that,
“Everybody agrees the recession is over.”
Injecting a cautionary note, he intoned, it will take “substantial time” before the economy recovers entirely. But Summers says that,
“…what we can take satisfaction from is we’ve walked back from the brink.”
Whew! Obama and the magical Dems have, once again, brought America through yet another crisis.
This new ’consensus’ from the left has managed to astound and delight each and every American who still believes that our elected officials and their ‘experts’ know their backsides from a hockey stick.
Summers went on to assure a grateful and unquestioning audience that ‘key indicators’ have shown that the economy is beginning to expand again and that job creation probably will follow. I think millions will ‘probably’ believe him.
After all, Summers says, all the experts agree. And if we’ve learned anything from this last year, its that ‘consensus’ has replaced debate, arbitrary figures have replaced science and Obama and is going to take care of each and everyone of us, even if he has to redefine reality. The check is in the mail and all is right with the world. Color me happy!
