Linda Valdez, the Arizona Republic’s one-dimensional leftist zealot and editorial writer, cranks out her fanatical spew in what the newspaper previously called a “Quick Hit, but now simply titles “Opinions.” These are encapsulated droppings intended to cement the wayward bent of the editorial board.
Here is her latest inanity, titled, “Good economic news will challenge Obama haters.”
The Blame Obama for Everything crowd will have to work to spin the latest economic news. Or maybe they can just admit things are going rather well under the president’s leadership. In the third quarter, the U.S. economy grew at its fastest pace since 2003. Consumer and business spending were up. Job growth in November was at a two-year high. It’s been slow — what with the GOP government shutdown and all — but things are getting better. Admit it.
Stephen Moore, chief economist at the Heritage Foundation, provides the above-her-head answer in the Dec. 22 edition of the Weekly Standard magazine. His article, “The Democrats Double Down,” is brilliant in its analysis and definitely worth taking the time to read.
It’s been a tough year under Emperor Obama. Do yourself the favor. You deserve it.
