The President is back at Martha’s Vineyard… I know. To some of us, it felt like he never left. Heck, on some level, a lot of us wish he never would leave there. But, he is back; after a brief 48 hour return to DC for some “very important” business. According to the Hill.com:
President Obama went back to his vacation on Martha’s Vineyard Tuesday evening following less than 48 hours in Washington, leaving people puzzled over why he came back in the first place. Obama’s two days in Washington were mostly quiet, and concluded with the President receiving his daily national security briefing in the morning, and joining Vice President Biden to huddle with members of his economic team in the afternoon.
Whoa… Hold the presses! He has an economic team? This is news worthy. After 11 million Americans gave up looking for work, a first quarter GDP contraction, and overall anemic economic growth (not to mention disappearing household wealth, and non-existent household income growth), it’s good to see that Obama has finally decided to scrap together a crack economic team… Of course, it is led by Joe Biden; so it might be a little premature to put the news on Drudge.

“If we define an American fascist as one who in case of conflict puts money and power ahead of human beings, then there are undoubtedly several million fascists in the United States. There are probably several hundred thousand if we narrow the definition to include only those who in their search for money and power are ruthless and deceitful.” The Danger of American Fascism, Henry A. Wallace, 1944
