Grand Game: Obama's speech edition
Ok folks the transcript is here, and it's chock full of fun. Get to it!
Here is my absolutely favorite bit of economic illogic:
"Building a world-class transportation system is part of what made us an economic superpower. And now we're going to sit back and watch China build newer airports and faster railroads, at a time when millions of unemployed construction workers could build them right here in America?"
OMG, did you see what he did there? Did debt ceiling budget cuts include laying off professional speechwriters for the President? It's not clear what in the world he's trying to say here but there is no good interpretation.
In an homage to Tosh.0, let's see how many snarky comments I can fit in this blog post.
Mr. President, if China jumped off a bridge, would you jump too?
Mr. President, infrastructure is not a tradeable good.
Mr. President, can our unemployed workers REALLY build China's new airports "right here in America?"
Mr. President, is China really the best comparison country for the US?
Mr. President, do you really think your audience is that dumb?
