Hey, Maybe Obama was Right About Not Listening to Some Bloggers

Yesterday, President Obama said this:

“Now that the government has reopened and this threat to our economy is removed, all of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists, and the bloggers, and the talking heads on radio and the professional activists who profit from conflict, and focus on what the majority of Americans sent us here to do, and that’s grow this economy, create good jobs, strengthen the middle class, educate our kids, lay the foundation for broad-based prosperity and get our fiscal house in order for the long haul,” Obama said.

Never let it be said that I won’t agree with the president on some issues. He’s right that some bloggers should be ignored because they just don’t know what they’re talking about.

Case in point, this July post by lefty Slate blogger Matt Yglesias:


Consider that blogger ignored, President Obama!

It was a prediction worthy of a mock-fest.
