It Could Have Been Worse!

Larry David argues that even if you aren’t better off than you were four years ago, at least you weren’t hit by an asteroid!

It is interesting to see how people react to this video. Is Stewart trying to be balanced? Is he making fun of people’s attitudes toward Obama? Are people afraid of criticism of Obama, since the alternative would be (much much) worse?

At least we can all agree that McCain and Palin would have almost certainly brought on a zombie apocalypse!

    Not to mention the republicans chose Mccain over the so-called expert on creating jobs. That can perhaps be explained by the economy not tanking in April/May 2008 during the primaries. However Mccain went on to choose Palin when he needed someone with economic experience. What does that say about Romney (or Mccain)?

    It could have been worse, thankfully we had 1929 to learn from, although, I think had Republicans been in charge it would have been austerity measures, just like Hoover. BTW- the Recovery Act was mostly tax cuts to working Americans, and definitely too small in the actual spending dept.
