We’re Governed By People Unfit For Public Service, Recession Edition

This will be a short post, because there really isn’t a lot to say.

That’s not quite true. There’s a ton to say. But at the end of the day it’s all pretty simple – when your leadership is garbage, your results will be garbage. And in a political context, the more power you centralize in one place, the more you suffer when the person in charge at that place is unworthy of that power.

And never in American history has there been a president – unfortunately at a time of the largest and most powerful executive branch ever, with the possible peacetime exception of FDR in the early to mid 1930’s when most of the modern structure of the federal government was laid in place – as singularly devoid of personal or political merit as Joe Biden is now.

The obvious eventual effect of this would be economic recession, if not collapse. Stand by for the latter if Team Biden’s policies continue. The former was made clear is the case today. But what do we get from the White House?

We get this…

Almost literally pissing down your leg and telling you it’s raining.

If you want to know how utterly dishonest this regime is, here’s the score, thanks to an AP “journalist” attempting to push the Regime narrative…

This was an accurate response…

As this site noted, you can’t fix a problem you refuse to acknowledge exists. And while the performance of the US economy is contingent on lots of factors, and particularly factors which are not dependent on government policy, the current recession is more policy-driven – from out-of-control spending to regulatory policy, to energy policy, to even a refusal to suppress crime and other facets of acute maladministration – than perhaps any other in American history.

And the beatings will continue until morale improves. Which means the removal of the septic, insane, intellectually moribund leadership from Joe Biden to Brian Deese to Janet Yellen on down which is inflicting this pain on the American people.
