Matt Lauer Talks Down the Economy

If Republicans question economic performance when a Democrat is in office, this in known in the media as "talking down the economy." In theory, noticing anything wrong with the economy works like an Australian Aborigine pointing a bone: through sheer power of suggestion, economic collapse will ensue.

However, when a Republican is in office, even if the economy is extremely strong as it is now, leftist media hacks like Matt Lauer will practically crawl on their knees begging politicians to pretend we're heading into a recession. During the Today show yesterday, he pleaded with Barack Hussein Obama to make this decidedly unfounded claim not once or twice but a tedious three times.

Even the evasive Osama Obama finally had to shut up Lower by pointing out that it would be "irresponsible" to start gabbling about a recession. Check out the video.

Matt Lauer: putz. If we go into a recession, I say NBC should cut expenses by paying him oh, say $50K a year. Then he can see what it's like for the rest of us.

Notice it's the ones who make millions (literally) who are trying to scare the rest of us about economic bad times coming our way? Good for Obama for telling Lauer it would be irresponsible to predict we are going into a recession.

I'm still not voting for him, but am glad he told Lauer (in essence) to stuff it.

If Lauer opens up his pie hole just a little more I could shove an I-beam down his gaping esophagus. does a body good.

Lauer is a nobody but must have something on someone or he'd be working at McDonalds, if they would hire him.

Wow you wingnuts are really grabbing at straws these days aren't you? And despite owning your own "news" network, you're still trying to sell the "Liberal Media" myth. Hilarious. Stay the course guys, stay the course :-)

Oh LOOK! A silly liberal showed up to demonstrate typical liberal "intelligence" by spewing the same unoriginal crap right off Kos.

How cute.

Have another brownie, dipwad.

Over the years, Lauer has been neutered by Katie, and now Dianne.
