Gyrations

Remember how out of touch people thought Bush I was when he allegedly couldn’t use a supermarket scanner? President Obama may be in the “out of touch” team picture.

Yesterday he said he wasn’t concerned about the “gyrations” of the stock market. Well, nearly a third of my stock market wealth has evaporated since Obama was elected president. Because of the “gyrating” market, many have lost their jobs, many more have stopped spending, some have lost their homes, and all of us have lost some sleep over our investments and our imperiled retirements.

But not to worry: President Hope isn’t losing any sleep over it. Of course, he has a guaranteed government pension and a free meal ticket for the rest of his life. Perhaps he ought to have some “skin in the game” too.
