In a related story early this week, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was Rep. Ben Ray Lujan’s guest in Santa Fe. Both Pelosi and Lujan are serial Ponzi scheme “deniers.” Predictably they locked arms at a press conference and disputed the fact that the government is actually running a Ponzi scheme. Apparently Lujan and Pelosi wanted to make it clear they believe any effort to gradually reform a bankrupt system is a bad idea.
There was a double dose of bad news for the Obama administration late in the week. First came yet another dismal “no jobs” report that showed that there is no economic fruit to be harvested from the massive Keynesian stimulus plan that was promoted by President Obama. Of course job seekers should not be so simplistic as to blame the impact of the naive economic policies solely on the president. Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Jeff Bingaman, Tom Udall, Ben Ray Lujan, and Senate wannabe Martin Heinrich all voted for the hair-brained borrow and spend schemes too. It truly was a community (organizer) effort.
The second news item that came late in the week could eventually prove equally ominous for various officials in the administration. It seems there is now email evidence detailing the botched “Fast and Furious” gunrunning debacle. And apparently these communications reached the “highest levels” at the White House just before a cover-up ensued. It seems that DOJ and ATF have been trying to obfuscate the facts surrounding the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
