This isn’t the next post I promised; that will be a follow-up on the Trashing of Obama. Tomorrow, I hope. But in case you need something to lull you to sleep — or more likely, to keep you awake chuckling — here’s part of a recent TV interview. Five points for identifying the questioner, ten for the answerer..
Q: Tim Geithner got laughed at in China last week. Is this even more than you thought was going to be in terms of where the president would take the economy?
A: What’s more than I thought would be is, we’re hearing a lot of good rhetoric. A lot of this is wrapped in good rhetoric, but we’re not seeing those actions, and this many months into the new administration, quite disappointed, quite frustrated with not seeing those actions to rein in spending, slow down the growth of government. Instead, China’s the complete opposite. It’s expanding at such a large degree that if Americans aren’t paying attention, unfortunately, our country could evolve into something that we do not even recognize, certainly that is so far from what the founders of our country had in mind for us.
