The President's Taste in Ribs and Economic Policy
PRESIDENT: Let me explain how the economy works. When you spend money to buy food it helps this lady's business. It makes it more likely somebody is going to find work. So instead of asking questions, answer mine: are you going to buy some food?
Yes, everyone, it's very funny that the President is such a rib-focused guy. But we all knew he was a man with a laser-like ability to focus on a single issue for seconds at a time; it's a pleasant surprise to find he can do so for the length of an entire conversation. In any case, what's really worrisome about the "Remarks by the President to the Press Pool" (I have about 165 copies, thanks everyone.) isn't the ribs thing: It's that the world's largest economy is in the hands of someone whose grasp of financial theory can essentially be reduced to "I have two apples. If I take one apple and give it to you. . ."
We kid. Of course he doesn't think that way! Why should the government give away apples to people who don't work? Fucking apple queens.
