Fool Me Twice...
It's deja vu all over again!
In 1992, the US was coming out of a recession. There was a noted uptick in the Economy by the 3rd Quarter. But it was campaign season, and the Democrats and the Big Media were in full spin mode. "It's the Economy, Stupid!" was the Clinton campaign slogan.
"Worst economy in fifty years!," Bill trumpeted over and over. Sure enough, people began to worry and wonder. They held off spending. Our little contracting business stopped getting calls.
It was a lie. Later, when the lie was exposed, Clinton supporters justified it, saying, "But if he hadn't lied, he wouldn't have gotten elected, and be able to carry out his great policies." Yes, I heard people say that on national TV.
Now it's campaign season again, and the Media is once more talking down the Economy. They started out by putting it under a microscope, wondering out loud why it was not faltering under the weight of Katrina, the War, oil prices, the mortgage crisis, etc. Then they questioned, on every newscast and in every column, how much longer can we live in this dream world? Is there a recession around the corner?
At last, this constant drumbeat, which the Media does so well, has begun to take a toll. Sadly, our Economy is no longer based on Production, but Consumerism. In other words, it is spending-driven. As soon as spending coughs, the Economy gets a cold.
So fight the System. Get out there and spend money, and buy American, for the country. It's the Economy, stupid!
