BIG BIRD DONE IT!
I wasn’t impressed with Barack Obama’s performance on matters economic in his first great debate with Presidential challenger Mitt Romney.
Obama has shown you can get to be a pretty slick professor of constitutional law at the University of Chicago but still a complete dud at daily living—sometimes known as ‘economics’—the study of which has been allowed to be hijacked by professional idiots.
However, in order to prove he’s also a dud at everyday matters, Romney has pulled some figures out of his fundamental orifice to suggest it’s Big Bird’s PBS the USA has to worry about – not the banking and financial excesses of Wall Street.
Obama has tried to capitalise on Romney’s poor maths and stupidity with this clever advert, but isn’t that a matter of the pot calling the kettle black?
Why are both sides unprepared to look at what the 0.1% rentier class has done to the world financial system?
This is capitalism?
No, it’s not.
