What’s This “Guessed” Crap?

I thought noted tax cheat Geithner was the smartest fellow in the world, the only one who could lead Treasury and follow the divine wisdom of the One and his faithful sidekick Wile E. Biden? Now Biden’s telling us the Most Competent Administration Evuh was just…guessing?

“No one realized how bad the economy was. The projections, in fact, turned out to be worse. But we took the mainstream model as to what we thought — and everyone else thought — the unemployment rate would be.”
“Everyone guessed wrong at the time the estimate was made about what the state of the economy was at the moment this was passed.”

So for $1 trillion we’ve gotten, what, 4 new government jobs and a pack of Juicy Fruit.
Change you can believe in.

    Don’t forget the cases of Ripple and Brew 102(remember that one!) to wash all this down with.

    Yeah, four new government jobs that the states will be on the hook to pay for once the one trillion imaginary dollars are used up.

    Uh, I work with projects worth only billions, not trillions, but even my little dinky Fortune 100 company uses that quaint little technique called scenario planning.
