Will Obama blame 'terrorists' for the Dow decline?

Steve McCann
Following Senate passage of the debt limit extension and President Obama's appearance on television, the Dow Jones Average declined 250 points for the day, close to 2%.   Mr. Obama, now that you have revealed to the world and the American people your unique management style in "solving" the debt ceiling debate, can we count on your finding a way to  blame those "terrorists" in the Tea Party movement for today's headlines?

No doubt a few more prime time speeches to the nation and impromptu news conferences with your allies in the press will allow you tell us how you are working overtime, with many sleepless nights included, for a solution for problems that you most assuredly had nothing to do with as you have been President for only two and half years.  Further if those dastardly Republicans would just disappear you could remedy all of mankind's problems by raising taxes on the "rich".

A list of the headlines today in the Financial Times, of the United Kingdom, that bastion of right-wing conspiracy theories, shows that troubles are mounting for a failed president:

US Consumers Cut Spending in June:  First fall since September 2009

Incomes Stagnant

S&P Under Pressure on US Credit Rating

Deal or No Deal, A US Downgrade is Justified

Fears Rise as Global Output Stalls:  Activity in Manufacturing Sector Feeble

US Manufacturing Slowdown Raises Economy Concerns

Dollar Hits All-Time Low Against the Swiss Franc

US Revises Down Growth Rate

Global Fears Push Gold to New High

World Economy: Downturn or Something Worse?

 

 

It appears there is a major world-wide conspiracy to make your life difficult while you are so busy working for the American people and caring little for your personal pleasures such as golf and vacations in austere places.

But in light of your splendid performance during the debt ceiling negotiations, the American people are no doubt confident you can by your hard work and superior intellect resolve this litany of annoying headlines in the newspaper
