Flip a coin or listen to Obama?

Good morning, Netizens...


In this morning's David Horsey cartoon we have the first time that David Horsey has violated the air space of Barack Obama's sacredness. Of course, that isn't to say that President Obama is sacred, no; rather it speaks to the truth about Obama's version of our national economic projections. After a week that saw the sacred gods of the Dow Jones diving deep into their inflation-proof bomb shelters, taking refuge in their offshore bank accounts which are now not nearly so safe as they once were, nobody can be convincing when they say they understand the markets.


“I dunno, man, like, let's flip a coin and see where it's going next,” one Wall Street marketer says to another.


Then we have Obama, making predictions about the economy. Which do you trust more, Obama's predictions while wearing rose-colored glasses or the two residents of Wall Street flipping a coin to see where things will end up?
