Humming right along.

Personal Income Rises 0.1% in June; Spending Falls More than Expected, Down 0.2%; First Decline Since Sept. 2009 (story developing)

UPDATE: How curious. Don’t these guys talk to each other? Geraghty just noticed a GOP get-out-of-jail-Free card, courtesy of the Timmah himself:

Tim Geithner Inoculates Republicans on All Future Job Losses

Remember this comment from this morning, and cite it, and repeat it, the next time you hear some Democrat argue that the debt ceiling deal somehow hurt the economy:

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: So this won’t cost us jobs?

TIM GEITHNER: No, it will not.

UPDATE: No, they DON’T talk to each other, judging by President Grumpy Pants’ press conference just now, where he blamed everything from the Japanese Tsunami to, YES, the debt ceiling wrangling for the lousy economy.

I haven’t heard such a litany of pitiful, barely articulated excuses since Ebola was 3 years old.

    Tsk! Tsk! THS I really don’t think it’s fair to compare a whining squalling brat to someone who is just trying to serve our country.

    I’m sure Ebola was much better behaved at three than BHO is now.

    Oh, you’re right Bill. Ebola was a veritable angel…and knew enough to blame El Niño.

    From the age of 3? Isn’t that a typo, and you meant “23”?
