Quote of the Day

Nassim Nicholas Taleb said…

“Obama did exactly the opposite of what should have been done… He surrounded himself with people who exacerbated the problem. You have a person who has cancer and instead of removing the cancer, you give him tranquilizers. When you give tranquilizers to a cancer patient, they feel better but the cancer gets worse… Total debt is higher than it was in 2008 and unemployment is worse.”

    Obama’s debt to those who BOUGHT (sic) him to power can never be repaid.

    So Summers has left the sinking ship so he does not get any blame for November but will be welcomed by Wall Street.
    However Geithner is still in place and can only cause more problems.
    Axelrod is leaving to go to Chicago to mastermind Obama’s case for re-election.
    We all wish him well in getting back to his desired political pals.

    When the US sneezes the rest of the world gets covered in snot. Yes, you should.

    Time to hit ‘Quote of the Day’ firmly on the head, Guido. It stinks.

    In November the American people have the chance to stop this nonsense.

    I think they are bright enough to do so.

    The solution is usually to trust the people.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
