The Emperor Has No 'Conomy

George W. Bush lied about the state of the economy for seven years straight, and then it all imploded with extreme dislocation. His stooge successor learned the same trick...

"Anyone claiming that America’s economy is in decline is peddling fiction. (Applause.)"

Pinocchio's nose:
"I believed in free trade, right up until the day I got wiped off the fucking map by it."

Retail inventories:

Oil inventories

Foodstamps (red) versus Jobs (blue)
"Now what IS true, is that we just continued the trend that was already in place, and did fuck all about it. Except blow smoke up your ass about hope and change"

The tool, or the one that follows? Again and again...
