The opening line from Stanley Greenberg’s op-ed in Saturday’s New York Times is a true progressive classic:

Barack Obama can’t catch a break from the American public on the economy, even though he prevented a depression and saved global capitalism.

For the most deserving effect, re-read that line and then hit “play” below:

Professional advice for Mr. Greenberg: Never open with your best joke. The Times is funnier than The Onion these days.

When you think “Obama,” you think “economic recovery” and “the man who saved capitalism,” don’t you?

One more laugh from the Times — this one’s from this morning’s editorial about the debt deal. The NYT definitely got the “hostage” memo concerning GOP demands in the debt deal that the entire MSM has been running with:

The rest of it is a nearly complete capitulation to the hostage-taking demands of Republican extremists.

It’s just amazing how the DNC can fire up the fax machine and suddenly have most of their pet parrots in the media repeating their talking points.

    "Barack Obama can’t catch a break from the American public"

    Deception from Inception Mr. Greenberg. By and large, those loading up on fresh lobster and cases of Mountain Dew think he's da' f@cking BOMB! To public employees, He's a savior. Those holing up in college or here illegally are still cutting him way more slack than He merits?

    Ahem, those of us among, in, out ( or TRYING to re-enter ) the workforce are understandably less generous in our appraisal? Characterizing ALL of us as "the public" is semantics at its best.

    In fact, let's do the world a favor and just do away w/ that vague term altogether. It doesn't BEGIN to describe the rift forming between the entitlement crowd and actual PRODUCERS!

    All dogs have four legs and a tail. My cat has four legs and tail. My cat is a dog.

    Correct, and when coupled with a finger waggy tone, the message is complete. Mr. Greenberg, if you're going to be a water carrier, please to carry the bucket upright..?

    The difference between the NYSlimes and the Onion, and The Peoples` Cube, is that the Slimes doesn`t know they are funny !
