It’s About to Get Worse for Democrats, A Lot Worse

Medical research has indicated that people like schizophrenics, or people suffering from mania, cannot distinguish between voices outside of themselves and the self-talk that goes inside their head. It’s just a simple biologic matter of that particular brain not being able to make that distinction.

Democrats have that same problem.

And here’s why: the only voices that are truly outside Democrats’ heads are voices from the opposition that they pay no attention to.

Criticism to Democrats is like a dog whistle. They just can’t hear that frequency.

The media, the bureaucracy, the economists, the government funded nongovernmental organizations and academia all speak inside the Democrat brain. And Democrats can’t distinguish this internal self-talk from legitimate outside praise.

So like people who suffer from delusions, it’s just a simple matter of Democrats not being able to make the distinction between self-talk and reality.

Yesterday on Ransom Notes Radio we ran a clip of Mike McKee, the eternal optimist for Bloomberg (media), talking about how the numbers indicated that we could be looking at 4% annual growth in GDP this quarter.

Of course I made fun of him, and today it's hard for me to see how recent consumer spending numbers would be consistent with that type of robust GDP growth. We have yet to see sustained economic growth under the Obama administration, or the Carter administration for that matter.

For the second day in a row the Commerce Department released numbers that caught economist off guard and demonstrated once again that all the "happy talk" about the economy is premature. In April consumer expenditures fell rather than rose, as economist widely expected. From Bloomberg:

Household purchases, which account for about 70 percent of the economy, dropped 0.1 percent, the first decrease in a year, after a revised 1 percent gain the prior month that was the strongest reading since August 2009, Commerce Department figures showed today in Washington. The median forecast of 77 economists in a Bloomberg survey called for a 0.2 percent April rise. Incomes advanced 0.3 percent after climbing 0.5 percent.

And since they can't blame the weather in April, what's the rationale to explain how they missed the decline in consumer spending? They blame the weather of course-- again.

Economists are saying the pent-up demand in March--because of the terrible winter weather prior to that-- skewed the numbers upward, and that in April we are just coming back to a more realistic spending pattern.

“A lot of pent-up activity took place in March and now we’re coming back to more normal levels of spending,” said Stephen Stanley, chief economist at Pierpont Securities LLC in Stamford, Connecticut. Stanley was one of economists who correctly predicted the decline. “The risk at this point is that the consumer is falling back into a pattern of mediocre spending growth.”

And herein we see the problem: I don't know what alternate reality economist live in, but certainly a 1/10% drop in consumer spending isn't mediocre spending growth. Either Stanley or I have the math wrong here. So if I carry the 2, divide by 13, use only whole numbers... yes: a drop in consumer spending is STILL the opposite of growth.

Yet, the media, the bureaucracy, the economists, the government funded nongovernmental organizations and academia are only hearing their self-talk inside the Democrat brain.

We are six years into this same pattern. And the Democrat brain is still saying the same things, even though the reality says something very different.

The bond market is telling us that this economy is in trouble. Stock markets do rally during recessions, so don’t take this market top as a sign that everything’s great. And… inflationary pressures are beginning to heat up a little bit. Get ready for stagflation. Oh, wait, it's already here.

At what point do Democrats start to scramble for self-preservation? Because if the pattern holds true, this economy is going down, not up. Quantitative Easing, at least in the short term, made up a bit for all of the policy initiatives from Democrats that killed jobs.

Those days are over, as even the liberals at the Fed have indicated.

And as I pointed out, mid-terms are coming up…really soon.

I truly believe that the Democrats can no longer distinguish between their own internal self-talk and reality.

And that’s why before these things get a little better, things are getting a lot worse.

They will continue to simply blame it on Bush because the current administration is incapable of fixin the problem, so blame it on Bush is their remedy just as its been for every other problem.

The Republicans are courting extinction with the voices in their own heads. These voices are elderly, white, and cranky. The voices in their heads that they try to ignore?

Those would be the voices of Blacks, Hispanics, and women of child bearing age. You know, the folks who provide the margin of victory in presidential elections.

The voices they listen to, include the inaugural addresses of President McCain and President Romney.

Don't address the real problems, things like the GDP or unemployment. Few work few are able to but which will sink the economy even further in the process the dollar becomes even weaker.

malestrom-you forgot to mention that it is the democrats who created the nanny state and continue to expand programs for the lazies paid for by the workers of both parties. It is the democrats who are hell bent on giving 12 million illegals amnesty so they can increase their voter rolls. It is the democrats who are all knowing and all caring and believe they nobody can take care of themselves and need their assistance from cradle to grave. It is the democrats who control government who bear the responsibility for having 23 million unemployed and 47 million on food stamps. It is the democrats who have burdened the private sector, with regulations they themselves do not understand, and caused jobs to disappear. It is the democrats who think government can create jobs when in fact they have trouble organizing a one care funeral procession. We know all about the democrats in power and how disastrous this scandal ridden administration has been. They spend more time and money trying to cover their tracks then serving the American people. We are well aware of the Liar-in-Chief, Slimy Harry, Botox Nancy and the rest of the mind numbed robotic leeches sucking the country dry. Good Luck America !!!

It is very hard to swing liberals from what they believe to what is the real truth. That may be the reason we can't get more people to understand anything.

The reason you can't get more people to understand is because your wing nut idology is what's been screwing up the economy and creating a lower class from what was agreat middle class . We're 40 years in now on the road to ruin we began taking in the mid 1970's The name of it is neoliberalism, Thatcherism, Reaganonomics. Supplyside, trickle down. take your pick. The long term trend is what important. It's taken 40 years to dig this hole, if we could throw the teabaging screwballs out and start elecing folks like Elizibeth Warren and Bernie Sanders it would only take maybe 30yrs to dig our way out
