    And how are you Alexis?
    It’s Great To Be Fine
    By Michael Walsh

    The Obama administration increasingly appears to be a black comedy, scripted from beyond the grave by the late Terry Southern. How else to explain this instantly infamous head-scratcher at today’s hallucinogenic press conference:

    Question: What about the Republicans saying that you’re blaming the Europeans for the failures of your own policies?

    President Obama: The truth of the matter is that, as I said, we created 4.3 million jobs over the last 27 months, over 800,000 just this year alone.

    The private sector is doing fine. Where we’re seeing weaknesses in our economy have to do with state and local government. Oftentimes cuts initiated by, you know, Governors or mayors who are not getting the kind of help that they have in the past from the federal government and who don’t have the same kind of flexibility as the federal government in dealing with fewer revenues coming in.

    (You can watch Obama stumble through this Baghdad Barry-type answer here.)

    By comparison, here’s the late Merkin Muffley, waxing lyrical about the joys of being fine with his Soviet counterpart. It’s great to be fine! Ha ha . . . Dr Strangelove ( The Corner)
