Pelosi: I've Got a Smart New Strategy For Taking Out Trump. We're Going to Fight On the Terrain Where He's the Weakest -- The Economy

H/t to Ed Morrissey, this Politico piece attempts to spin this Retarded Lunacy as some kind of smart strategy.

Pelosi hosted a special speaker's meeting on Tuesday with a top Obama economics adviser to explain to Democrats why the economy isn't actually as strong as Trump claims and how they can message that to voters.

Actually, they're testing out two different messages, each of which completely contradicts the other:

1, The economy is, despite your lyin' eyes, terrible.

2, The economy is great and it's all because of Obama.

Even Democrats should be able to grasp that those two claims cannot be claimed at the same time.

But they're trying anyway.


...

"I'm glad that we're shifting and pivoting to something else. Every time I poll in my area, it's always the same thing: education, health care and the economy," said Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas, who is facing a fierce primary challenger from the left in his sprawling south Texas district.

Yes, well, shifting the debate to Trump's best battleground isn't going to help.

Note, however, that this guy's quotes indicate he was mostly just relieved that San Fran Nan and her leftwing coven would stop hammering Red State Democrats with more unpopular impeachment nonsense.

Other Democrats are claiming that there are other indicators of an economy's health, beyond the normal criteria such as the unemployment rate, wage increases, and a strong stock market.

What could these economic criteria that don't have to do with wages, jobs, and investments be? He doesn't say.

Basically, he's claiming that there is more to money than just money.


...

"Look, I think everyone will acknowledge, the stock market is up and unemployment is down, but that doesn't tell the full picture," said Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), who heads the caucus' messaging committee.

"I think all of us hear from our constituents. They know the economy is improving, but their own personal situation isn't getting better," Cicilline said.

We have been at what economists term "Full Employment" -- a level of employment that cannot be increased in the long-term, which usually means an unemployment rate of 5% -- for more than a year.

Plus, people in all quintiles of wealth/salary are getting wage increases -- with the bottom two quintiles getting the biggest pay raises, and their first pay raises in decades.

There is no nice way to say this: while there are always people who can't find work, if it's really true that hordes of Democrat Dregs still can't find work -- not just a few people here and there, but a large percentage of them -- then you have to consider that the problem is more of a You Thing than a Trump Thing.

Maybe you should LEARN TO CODE...?

Say, what's that iceberg ahead?


...

Some of the party's worst fears were realized in a recent ABC/Washington Post poll that showed nearly 6 in 10 people approve of Trump's handling of the economy, another career high.

In a closed-door meeting this week, Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) argued to his fellow Democrats that they should try to take credit for economic gains that he said were likely spurred by policies under President Barack Obama, according to multiple people in the room.

And there you go. Obama's responsible for this economic boom, and also, there is no boom. The boom is another Racist Trump Lie.

Almost as if they were coordinating this together -- almost, you understand -- the Washington Post pumped out a supposed "news" piece that argued that the 90% rate of personal satisfaction recently reported by Gallup is based on an economy that is just like the one under Obama.

Only people did not credit Obama for the Phantom Boom they were experiencing, but are crediting Trump.

Despite the fact they like Obama more and Trump less.

Why would they then give the guy they like less credit, and the guy they don't like as much more credit?

The Washington Post doesn't say. I guess the Democrats' Messaging Team didn't fill in that detail for them.

I'm not saying it's Racism, but it's probably Racism.

Americans increasingly rate this as the best economy since the late 1990s, with a recent surge in optimism, even though many economic metrics show striking similarities to the final years of the Obama administration.

Oh yeah, the "economic metrics" are just the same as they were under Obama.

Weird, this sounds just like the crap talking points the Democrats are rolling out.

How serendipitous!

Nevertheless, Racists persist in giving Trump credit, the Washington Post sadly grumbles:


...


"I'm driving a brand-new 2019 Ford F-250. I've got work coming out the ying-yang. I'm doing okay," DeHenau said. "Four years ago, I couldn't sleep at night. That's a pretty big turnaround."

Some of the biggest recent increases in consumer confidence have come from independent voters and less affluent households, according to Richard Curtin, director of the University of Michigan Surveys of Consumers. His team always asks people to explain why they feel confident, and lately they are hearing near-record levels of people saying their income and wealth are rising.

"We've only seen this many people mention income gains twice before: 1966 after the 1960s expansion and 2000 after the 1990s expansion," Curtin said.

In interviews with six small-business owners across the country, all acknowledged that the economy had turned around under President Barack Obama, but they pointed out that several more years of steady growth, solid job gains and additional stock market records under Trump had turned "cautious optimism" into full-blown optimism.

See? It's Obama's Boom.

And also: There is no boom.

The Patriotic Firefighters at CNN decided to indulge in some fantasy Wishcrafting, shipping Five ways the cornoavirus can hurt Trump's economy and save us Virtuous Democrats!

The spread of the coronavirus has already hit demand for oil, clobbering prices -- a problem for US producers, which are clustered in red states like Texas, Alaska and North Dakota, as well as purple states like New Mexico where Trump lost in the 2016 election.

In 2019, China's oil demand made up about 14% of the world market and accounted for half of world oil demand growth, according to IHS Markit.

Yayyyy! Deplorable Midwestern Frakkers are going to make less money! Yayyyyyy!!!!

Orange Man Bad! Orange Man Bad! Let us collect our coven and cast a spell of binding that will visit a plague upon the United States!

WE LOVE SCIENCE!!! AND WITCHCRAFT!!!

Saw a new app advertised, called Acorn, I believe.

You set it up, it takes every purchase you make, rounds it up to the next dollar, and then deposits that fraction of a dollar into an account that invests into the stock market automatically, in a fund or a stock you choose.

So small an amount, you don't notice it. But after a few years, you have a real nest egg started.

I don't know the details of how they take a cut or otherwise make money. Maybe on the float or something.

Just for fun, let's presume that there's a 50 state landslide for Trump in November.

You know and I know, that any Democrats who survive the cranial eruptions, will one and all claim that Trump isn't the legitimate President.

And the lists of "reasons" will be endless, amazing and exhausting.

Most of them are evil. And the ones that aren't motivated by evil, simply live in a world where they have the mind of a child.

A weak, spoiled, over-indulged, selfish, bratty and utterly non-self-aware child.

Brace yourselves for the tantrum to continue for the four years to come, just as it will have run for the four years preceding.

"I think all of us hear from our constituents. They know the economy is improving, but their own personal situation isn't getting better," Cicilline said.


--I absolutely believe this. Because his Dem constituents are largely insulated from both economic booms and busts - teachers, gov workers, families on welfare, college students - they loved the Obama years because it didn't matter how horrible the economy was, it didn't effect their lifestyles one little bit.

But now, they hear that everyone else is doing well and, once again, their lifestyle isn't effected one little bit - so they get jealous and bitter.

Hmmm.

Destroying the health insurance market for 15M+ people (all self-employed/self-sufficient)? Increasing and accelerating the cost dysfunction of the rest of the health insurance disaster?

"You didn't build that" idiot demagoguery.

Starting off right by making the first attack on the rule of law with respect to bond-holders (GM, Chrysler bond lootings).

Regulatory explosion.

Lysenkoist/looting-driven attack on the energy sector.

Maxing out on illegal and legal unskilled migration, and legal skilled (American-displacing H1B) action.

Still trying to find a policy that, even conceivably, could have helped in any way, instead of being pure sabotage.

I haven't really run into any claiming that the economy is actually bad, but I know a number who say it's about to get bad because Trump is going to destroy what they constantly call the "Obama miracle."

The other line they take is to admit that the economy is doing great, but to claim it would be doing "so much better" under Hillary, AND it would also be cleaner and better for the environment, etc., etc.

So small an amount, you don't notice it. But after a few years, you have a real nest egg started.

I don't know the details of how they take a cut or otherwise make money. Maybe on the float or something.

Bernie would have trouble understanding how it worked.

Mentioned this at end of the last thread, but NPR was trying to do this yesterday too, during a story on the scarcity of surgical masks. The guy they interviewed blamed Trump for any future Coronavirus problems in US, because he gutted the Ebola Czar position that Obama had created. Is Trump's fault if we are not prepared. Gotta keep those expensive czar gigs around forever, even after a crisis passes.

196 Good point above about guvamint workers - now a shockingly large part of the workforce - being insulated from the real economy. Recall the "stimulus" primarily went to help insolvent/idiotic/"blue"/middle-class welfare (govt. work) states *not* have to make needed cuts and adjustments.

In CA, secular economic change, massively boosted by idiotic policies, have resulted in the "middle class" being shrunk substantially, and largely replaced by govt. employees, as opposed to people in the real economy (DPA - directly productive activity). Teachers used to have 2nd jobs - now they often have 2nd houses.

And a pampered, increasingly dumbed-down, dependent "middle class" like that readily accepts/supports utter idiocy - *even when it negatively affects them directly* - like "climate change policy", etc.

My current favorite are the very handsomely paid/pampered "planning" professionals/boards/etc. that appear to do ....... zero planning.

Every development proposal is approved. No evidence, ever, of *any* consideration given to traffic impact.

There are versions of these govt. jobs (well, most of them) that are legit, if done properly - but at half the pay scale. As it is, there is a self-licking ice cream cone that is destructive, insolvent, and even worse, socialized/dumbed down so that it's absorbed and promotes all the racist SJW authoritarian poison.

Blue Collar workers actually are taking more money home, be it work or thru the tax cuts - and I generally believe many are or have the opportunity to work O/T.

Realistically, what can the Ds offer? Take more of your money (the most many have had in a long time)? Give you free healthcare that someone else will pay for? Give you free college that someone else will pay for?


The two key things? The first CNN debate when everyone raised their hands to give illegals free healthcare and the D party going along with Warren to wipe out student debt.


Nobody is for that. But for the Ds: Shovel. Hole. Some assembly required.

257 I am one who would make more money if oil prices went up, so I hate to see demand fall. BUT everyone has to acknowledge that falling all prices equals increased consumer free cash, which boosts the economy in other ways.

In fact, we are now at the incredible sweet spot with respect to oil prices, where if prices go down we benefit one way, but if prices go up, we benefit in a different way. Leftist's can't understand that.

The Obama Effect started tentatively during the 2008 election and utterly raged after the SCOAMF was elected.

There was initial economic damage from the bursting of the Democrat-engineered housing bubble. The Obama Effect was a further persistent economic contraction brought on by businesses being reluctant to borrow, hire, or expand because of the socialist crazy talk coming from President Dunning-Kruger. Nobody could make plans because nobody knew where he would strike next. Besides ruining economic confidence, which only required Obama to run his mouth, real damage was done by legislation and executive orders.

The recovery began tentatively with the prospect of being freed from Obama in 2016. We're doing very well now, especially considering that not every damn fool thing left over from the Obama administration has been completely flushed yet.

Posted by: LeftCoast Dawg at February 12, 2020 05:01 PM (sy5kK)

274 There is of course very much a world market for oil, as for over a century probably the most real global market, for an important commodity (precious metals not really the same).

But it's segmented, very much, as of course all large markets are. Venezuelan crude can't be shipped to refineries built for Saudi crude, and on and on. The abundance of oil today masks/damps down supply shocks to the point they're trivial - um, that's kind of why abundance is always desirable - but it's still very much a global market.

And AOC isn't fracking's real nemesis - Big Oil is. The majors and larger independents face a very different cost structure and business situation than unconventional producers, and like Big Corp in every sector, seek to distort the power of guvamint to squeeze their competitors (hello, I'm Dodd-Frank, damn glad to meet you!!).

Prices have the unconventional patch in a sort of limbo right now, but that'll change.

333 Sebastian, that "only place to go" thing with $$$ into equities was absolutely the case. "Financial repression" - the ridiculous maintenance of interest rates at near zero, for years. Major objective of that vandalism.

The utterly insane policies adopted in reaction to the crisis of '08, by themselves, not only prolonged the downturn but probably planted/added to sees of future problems (not letting markets find their level, not letting failures fail and losers disappear).

And the labor participation rate *is* the most important thing, socially, of all the metrics. There are structural/demographic factors that affect it outside the ambit of policy, but it has been below the healthy longer term average, now climbing back in that direction. Very good news.

Banks can actually make money at LESS than 0% interest, due to the fractional lending rules.

They can easily loan out 5 - 8 X the hard assets they have, being paid back in now real capital.

Fractional lending is a license to create money.

Posted by: Don Q at February 12, 2020 05:11 PM (NgKpN)

Fractional reserve banking. If this doesn't exist you're not really a bank, you're a depository(100% of money in accounts sitting in a vsult waiting to be withdrawn).

Banks make their money on a spread. Need about 2% to be functional, 1% goes to operations costs(not including interest cost). So they're a volume business when it comes to lending.

It was way more than that.

Obama's poilicies were designed to put Tax Free investment capitol back into the Taxable side of the register. His decision to drive down the economy led to massive sell offs of private holdings that were then exposed to further taxation.

390 Too long/perhaps somewhat invidious (hence the problem), but the conversion of govt. sector jobs from stable but modestly remunerative to what they are now is one of the most disastrous trends of the last 30 years.

Not just fiscally. Socially. In terms of destroying the very concept of "public service".

You see a firefighter standing with a banner on election day saying "Pay Us More!!" - this guy's father had what was legitimately considered a very sweet deal as a firefighter at a fraction of the current package - and you never quite view them the same again. More importantly, *they* don't view their jobs the same as their forbears did.

Oh - and my urge to open the window and yell at these fine young guys "well do something else, if the pay's not good enough, guys!" was blocked by 2 things.

One - not my style, generally.

Two - it was 2012. I have a license plate they can read. It was 2012 (i.e., not 1970s or something). My trust in them as fellow citizens - much less as brave public servants - had declined to the point where my well-honed "be nice to the scowling Soviet customs/border guard" instincts took over.

423 Had a guy I used to respect say that the good economic times were all due to Preezy Shit Midas.

When I got done laughing at him, I said in a way your are right. By Obama leaving office he is responsible for the good economics and then that after only 11 years Bamster's policies were really beginning to work.


Man he was pissed and stormed away. I laughed some more AT him as he did that. Should have known that even before Trump I always called a spade a spade... even if it was the Ace.

425 Most people don't pay attention to daily politics. They hear snippets in the background, they hear others talking. They hear what they want to hear. Either the economy is doing great or it is doing poorly. Great because of Obama, and we need another Dem before trump fucks it up. Or poorly, so we need a dem to fix it and get back to the milk and honey days of Obama.

Posted by: Guy Smiley at February 12, 2020 05:25 PM (XN+hF)

429 Too long/perhaps somewhat invidious (hence the
problem), but the conversion of govt. sector jobs from stable but
modestly remunerative to what they are now is one of the most disastrous
trends of the last 30 years.



Not just fiscally. Socially. In terms of destroying the very concept of "public service".



You see a firefighter standing with a banner on election day saying
"Pay Us More!!" - this guy's father had what was legitimately considered
a very sweet deal as a firefighter at a fraction of the current package
- and you never quite view them the same again. More importantly,
*they* don't view their jobs the same as their forbears did.



Oh - and my urge to open the window and yell at these fine young
guys "well do something else, if the pay's not good enough, guys!" was
blocked by 2 things.



One - not my style, generally.



Two - it was 2012. I have a license plate they can read. It was
2012 (i.e., not 1970s or something). My trust in them as fellow
citizens - much less as brave public servants - had declined to the
point where my well-honed "be nice to the scowling Soviet customs/border
guard" instincts took over.

Contrary to your thesis, CBD demands that readers pay homage to conventional visual artists of the past. The shortened comment periods are designed to capture just the right amount of bowing and scraping. The entire premise of CBD's posts is, "here is a thing of beauty that I, an enlightened one, have found to bless your sordid existence."
You say "Being Ace, the commentators don't hold back"- but 60% of the commenters from Ace's Golden Age are gone, run-off by CBD and his friends. They don't hold back because they're gone.

507 say anything to him about how his pension and those of his colleagues are leading his state to insolvency and he won't be a happy camper.

Pensions are far too easily raided. Pensions are practically, if not literally, designed to foster government, union, or business corruption. They should be illegal. A person's retirement should be owned by them, not by a cadre of union, management, or government bureaucrats.

Every failing pension needs to be replaced with a 401k-style plan, not bailed out as yet another pension.

Posted by: Stephen Price Blair at February 12, 2020 05:35 PM (2lndx)

508 The problem with public-sector pensions is not that there are pensions per se; it;s that they are mostly "defined benefit" as opposed to "defined contribution".

What I find so funny about this is that Milton-Keynes is a city in Britain.

So AOC managed:
1) To conflate Milton Friedman and John Maynard Keynes, who couldn't be more different
or
2) Name an English town instead of an economist
or
3) Both

It's just freaking perfect.

549 "Basically, he's claiming that there is more to money than just money."

Money isn't important, what it represents is what has been produced and what is being produced. And that's the key, if more people are producing more stuff that more people want, the economy is doing well. Simple as that. And when to approach full employment, that pretty much demonstrates that that is happening. This is a great economy unless you're a democrat and rely on unemployment to keep people voting for you. Hitler realized that people would be happier with his government if they could occasionally bask in luxury. Go on a cruise, etc. If you have people working, making money, and building up savings, they can somehow even manage to go on cruises and what not without the government even giving such things to them. Imagine!
