Oh Yeah? Bingley Will Create 30 Million!

You have my word on it

TODD: …I’ve not been able to get any kind of pledge. So you believe that’s the president’s promise, twelve million jobs?

CUTTER: That’s not a promise, that’s reality. That is what is forecasted by economists that would be created over the next four years on the path that we’re on. Now, we can do better than that, but…

Well, seeing as how our economic growth rate has been nothing short of pitiful; and what with all of those ill-thought-out, job-killing, burdensome financial/environmental/ObamaCare regulations being written and rolled out in the next few years; and with millions of people having dropped out of the labor force; and because of the Obama administration’s stupendously terrible history with ‘economic forecasts’ (the WFB has more on that score) — I guess she makes a pretty valid point, no?

You know, every time I see a video of Stephanie Cutter I can’t help but give her precedence over Jay Carney, much as I value the impudence and hypocrisy of the White House spokesman.*

    Best line: “Mr. Bingley always comes before breakfast and never leaves before supper.”

  2. Mr. Bingley says:

    Gary, that production of P&P is the best. Sure it’s cheesey 80s British sets and grainy filmography but the script is simply fantastic; far superior to the productions since.

    There’s only 1 Mr Darcy, though http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hasKmDr1yrA

    Is that all you ladies ever think about?

  5. aelfheld says:

    Did they bother to mention what country those 12 million jobs would be created in?

  6. Michael Lonie says:

    Probably Ruritania, Aelfheld.

    The forecasts of economists are by no stretch of the imagination reality, and if the bots running this administration think they are, it goes a long way toward explaining why they are so incompetent on economic matters.
