Rick "Shark and Shepherd" Esenberg has sniffed at bloggers whose meager ambition is to "offer entertainment to our side."
As opposed to his blog, which, lately at least, has been a source of entertainment for those with a taste for unintentional comedy on the other side.
Such as this latest masterpiece:
He (Obama) has exacerbated those perceptions with an incredibly expensive and failed stimulus plan that was a text book proof of what public choice theory tells us about the hijacking of government programs.
Ese says his purpose is to explore issues, but I see only fact free assertion with a highfalutin and unexplored reference to public choice theory thrown in. Eight months and $73 billion of payouts later and the stimulus plan is a failure already?
Credit where it’s due: although the gold medal for staving off depression goes to Ben Bernanke, the Federal Reserve chairman, and the silver medal to China’s leaders for their even more impressive stimulus, the president deserves at least bronze. According to Moody’s, the ratings agency, the stimulus package has saved more than 500,000 jobs. Without the jump in government spending, GDP would still be in a nosedive.
It would be fascinating if Ese could explain why the stimulus has failed.
