Cognitive Dissonance

"Democracy! Bah! When I hear that I reach for my feather boa!" - Allen Ginsberg

109 notes

The people of America recognize that the slowdown in jobs that occurred during the early years of the Bush administration were the result of a perfect storm. And an effort by one candidate to somehow say ‘Oh, this recession and the slowdown in jobs was the result of somehow this president magically being elected…’ people in America just dismiss that as being poppycock. And they recognize it as that.

[The American people] also recognize that there was a cyclical recession that rebounded from the extravagance of the period that existed prior to that time where we had irrational exuberance, according to Alan Greenspan, and we had a downturn. They also recognize that the internet bubble burst. These things came together creating a perfect storm that meant a huge job loss.

Every indication is that the economic policies adopted and pursued by this president are creating jobs at a very high pace. And so the people of America have to ask ‘Do I stay with the president, who is rebuilding the economy, who is creating jobs, or do you want to stop mid-stream and find someone new?’
