There’s that word again . . . . . . unexpected

I flipped on the television to catch the beginning of the Neil Cavuto hour on Fox News and there it was again!  New jobless numbers had come out and they were . . . . . wait for it . . . . . don’t ruin the surprise . . . . . “unexpectedly high.”   Neil referred to “experts” who were surprised by the new figures.  What is it that qualifies someone as an “expert” if he or she keeps getting surprised by bad economic news while the mad socialist is in the White House? 

Of course it might not be so bad – some “experts” say that the bad weather may have caused the rise in the numbers.  Is the “Gore-effect” now assaulting our economy with historic levels of snow?  I would like to meet one of these “experts.”  I would ask him how he got to be an “expert” when the economy keeps surprising him even while it performs exactly the way the Congressional Budget Office predicted.  The CBO said that if we passed that silly stimulus bill it would be manifestly worse than doing nothing at all – they were right.  In that event, wouldn’t the CBO be the “experts” rather than the so-called “experts?” 

These knuckleheads are talking about another stimulus package.  They don’t understand what is happening now, yet they want to reinforce failure.  Only six percent of the people think that the stimulus package worked.  Seven percent believe that Elvis is still alive – I think that those two groups of people are one in the same and they consider themselves “experts” on our economy.

  1. Amigo, I loved your post.

    As Einstein said " the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results".

    Since Einstein was a bonified and vetted "expert" it would be correct to label supporters of Stimulus II as just simply INSANE.
