Yesterday, ran into a Democratic friend whom I hadn’t seen since the debacle. I told him I feared that the election returns would mean continued economic stagnation, with the slow recovery sputtering out and the twentysomethings who voted overwhelmingly for Obama finding it increasingly difficult to find jobs.
He, citing “most economists”, insisted that the president alone can’t fix the economy.
And that comment got me thinking, wondering. . .
I mean, haven’t you noticed that many of the people insisting that the president alone can’t fix the economy are some of the very people who still blame the immediate past president (a Mr. George W. Bush) for the Great Recession?
