We are still so screwed

Thus spaketh the Congressional Budget Office's projections, in which ballooning deficits don't buy us lower unemployment.   When are policymakers going to get really upset about this and actually do some New Deal public works and general rebuilding of the kind our decrepit public infrastrucure actually needs?

Republicans have absolutely nothing to offer on the economy, health care, education, you name it, as Arnold proves every day in California.  Their operatives are making Americans insane. The president of the US wants to give a speech to children about how school is important.  In the Insane Country, saying school is good becomes controversial. Hundreds or thousands of people spend their working day considering what to do about this.
In Florida's Indian River County, the superintendent met with local officials up to the 11th hour to determine how to treat the broadcast. According to the Press Journal, school officials last week decided that the speech had to be taped and reviewed before showing students, meaning it would not be shown live.
And these people are allowed to run schools for children?  They are completely dumb.

Obama rose to the occasion with this crescendo:  "I expect great things from each of you," he said. "So don't let us down -- don't let your family or your country or yourself down. Make us all proud. I know you can do it."

"we" can. they can't.
