Thank you, Time. No, this isn't the "Worst Economy Ever." So far, it still looks amazingly like a normal recession, not the wimpy little things we've been seeing for the past 25 years.
Of course, that doesn't stop our elected overlords from making the comparison. Perhaps if our President would stop blundering about, mispronouncing foreign leaders' names, and maybe trying to, I don't know, actually LEAD instead of running around crying "It's not my fault, it's that other guy's," we might actually get somewhere. But I'm not going to hold my breath. So far, we've seen that P-BO is an empty suit, unable to muster the necessary fortitude to carry this nation forward.
