Nugent: Maybe Obama "Intentionally Wants To Kill Off The Nation's Private Sector"
Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF
In a June 15 Washington Times column, Ted Nugent attacked President Obama's economic policies and wrote that "[e]ither the Obama administration does not know its history or it intentionally wants to kill off the nation's private sector. It might be a little of both."
From Nugent's column:
President Obama's economic and social engineering has been a flop, a disaster. The economy continues to sputter, gag and hemorrhage; unemployment and underemployment are getting worse, not better; housing prices continue to plummet; the dollar's value is shrinking; and our debt is suffocating any hopes of a long-term economic recovery. Keep the Titanic on course, captain.
Dumping more than a trillion dollars into the market and claiming to want to stimulate the nation's economy is analogous to intentionally allowing the Missouri River to flood towns and cities because the streets need cleaning.
Either the Obama administration does not know its history or it intentionally wants to kill off the nation's private sector. It might be a little of both.
