CNBC Hates President Obama

Filed under: Uncategorized — lbej @ 11:11

Yesterday CNBC disbelievingly announced the results of a new poll finding that a large plurality of Americans still blame Bush for the economic crisis and recession of 2008-2009, as well as the economy’s continuing struggles.  I say still because they said still, and I point it out because the implication is that opinions, like the facts, are supposed to have changed by now.  Wait…you mean the facts haven’t changed either?  Somebody should really tell CNBC.

CNBC anchors and commentators have spent the three-plus years of this bull market twisting themselves into statistical and rhetorical pretzels trying to explain how the jury’s still out on Obama.  You know what isn’t undecided on Obama?  The stock market CNBC is supposed to be objectively covering.  This is CNBC’s own five-year chart of the Dow Industrial Average.

Do you even need to check the dates to know when the market bottomed?  I bet you don’t.

Separately, Jack Welch was on CNBC this week to remind us all how American business would be free to breech the walls of Minas Tirith and cover Middle Earth in a second darkness create jobs if Obama would just get his communism out of the way.  The headline was, seriously, ‘Jack Welch:  I’m A Little Shaken.’  Which I read as ‘Jack Welch:  I’m A Little Goblin.’



  1. Jack Welch is a whack job along with many others. They just can’t admit when they’re wrong.
