Time Magazine and Swampland's Joe Klein Says We Are Dumb

While perusing Memeorandum for breaking news I stopped at "To Dumb to Thrive", a piece by the liberal Joe Klein over at Times Swampland talking about the so called Obama stimulus. Aside from generally insulting the intelligence of the American people, calling them Dodos, it is basically your usual leftist drivel from an out of touch statist mouthpiece supporting big government.

A couple quick excerpt from this leftist masterpiece follows.

1. The Obama Administration has done a terrible job explaining the stimulus package to the American people...especially since there have been very few documented cases of waste so far.

2. This is yet further evidence that Americans are flagrantly ill-informed...and, for those watching Fox News, misinformed.

It is very difficult to have a democracy without citizens. It is impossible to be a citizen if you don't make an effort to understand the most basic activities of your government. It is very difficult to thrive in an increasingly competitive world if you're a nation of dodos.

Two outstanding conservative blogs, Left Coast Rebel, and Another Black Conservative covered this story in detail, both with razor sharp conservative analysis and commentary. Check these guys out. They have it together and are spot on with their insights.

Back to Joe Klein and his Obama fascination/illusion. Americans are becoming increasingly aware of the Obama agenda and its inherent failings. Most will no longer buy into the drivel his handlers have so painstakingly crafted and  depended on the American people buying.

The reckoning is soon to arrive,  2010 and 2012.

  1. Is this your answer to my Rush is the "Beast" post RN?

    The third paragraph is close to being correct. There is a big portion of our Nation made of of apathetic dodos that have no clue about anything. These are the nuts that carry "Keep government out of Medicare" signs at Tea Party events. They paint Hitler mustaches on George Bush or Barack Obama.

    I can understand and defend the stimulus package. The 60 trillion dollar financial industry collapses and think of that. You IRA or 401K only worth what THE GOVERNMENT insured them for. That's if the account was insured.

    It was a necessary evil that the Bush and Obama Administration had to do. And now that the furor subsides a bit the shills on the right who were a few months ago silent because they knew lack of oversite and deregulation led to this near economic catastrophe decided the time is now right to start in on their "big government" nonsense.

    Would you have let the system collapse RN?

  2. Actually no TRUTH, hadn't thought of it that way. But since you mention it I suppose it could be construed as such by some.

    I believe I came out against the whole bailout stimulus stuff back in the beginning of the "crises."

    I still believe the market ultimately works best left alone. The financial interests that were horribly mismanaged deserved to fail.

    Government, and its growing deficit just got bigger. The answer is always more government and more government by the left.

    Now I do realize that in any civil society there needs to be some regulation and oversight. However my contention is it should be limited and effective. Generally however it is neither in this day and age.

    Bigger government breeds on itself and hence it gets ever bigger and more intrusive. As history has shown.

    History has also shown that our markets can and do self correct and get stronger after weathering the storm.

    At any rate what was done was done. On principle I stand opposed. We'll just have to see the impact a ways down the road.

  3. Often we forget the little guy, the SMB, in our discussions of the comings and goings of the Internet marketing industry. Sure there are times like this when a report surfaces talking about their issues and concerns but, for the most part, we like to talk about big brands and how they do the Internet marketing thing well or not so well.
