Dig Up, Stupid

Once again mangling idiom in a way no Republican could get away with, Obama writes a citizen [emphasis mine]:
A letter provided to Washington Secrets from Obama to a long-unemployed Portland, Maine carpenter pulls back the curtain of economic hope to reveal the truth about the stagnant economy. "I won't lie to you," Obama penned in hand to Charles Oliver in October. "It will probably take another year or two to fully dig our way out of this hole."

Bravo, President Simpson.

Thing is, Obama's been using that line for years. So either no one's noticed that - taken literally as an analogy - it's an idiotic and fruitless plan, or Obama knows that it's actually a good description of his plan to spend our way out of debt, uses it deliberately, and laughs to himself every time no one calls him on his honesty.


  1. It's kinda like The Zero's "bottomless cuppa coffee" spending programs. Digging one's way out of a hole and spending one's way out of debt are simply examples of the monumental stupidity of leftard genius.

    Never try to out stupid a leftard politician. All that does is enter one into the rolls of self-lobotomized leftard sheeple.

  2. We're sinking! Chop a hole in the hull to let the water out....
