Even Captain Leg Thrill is getting Hope & Change confused with Malaise & Stagflation, and rightly so:

Let’s just keep calling the president “O’Carter” from now on. It’s fitting on many levels — it recognizes the Carter/Obama economic death spiral connection while at the same time being a tribute to Obama’s Irish heritage.

    Stagflation – umm I thought inflation was very low. Hence it can`t be stagflation. Also GDP has grown for 4 straight quarters. True unemployment did decline much in the past year but that also happened in the 1991 and 2001 recessions (GOP Presidents that time)

    I didn't say there was stagflation now, I said that Obama's "hope and change" is going to be synonymous with Carter's "malaise and stagflation" as far as hideously misguided policies that destroy economies goes. At least that's what I was trying to say — but I can see how it could be read that way.

    Doug, comparing President Obama to that pathetic old goober Jimmy Carter is extremely insulting to…uh…let's see…um….to…hmm. I'll get back to you later on that…
