    Straining to find a way to excuse President Obama's Friday remark that "the private sector is doing fine," on Monday's NBC Today, co-host Ann Curry did her best to spin for the White House: "He is right in saying that the private sector is doing better than the public sector, is he not? And so that was his point, that this comment was taken out of context." [Listen to the audio]

    Curry's attempt at Obama campaign damage control was prompted by left-wing guest and MSNBC host Chris Hayes arguing: "I would also say that the point he's making specifically about the difference between where the private sector's at and where the public sector's at is a really important one. We've lost 600,000 jobs in the public sector....Those layoffs did not have to happen if we had extended revenue sharing from the federal government."

    I wasn't aware that Ann Curry was so stupid.

    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Never underestimate the stupidity of those who consider themselves intellectuals. And let's also remember whose show she was on. Chris Hayes was the source of this bit of wisdom:

    "I feel... uncomfortable, about the word because it seems to me that it is so rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war. Um, and, I donít want to obviously desecrate or disrespect memory of anyone thatís fallen, and obviously there are individual circumstances in which there is genuine, tremendous heroism, you know, hail of gunfire, rescuing fellow soldiers, and things like that. But it seems to me that we marshal this word in a way that is problematic. But maybe Iím wrong about that."[

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    People like Hayes always bring to mind this quote:
    War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

    English economist & philosopher (1806 - 1873)

    I think what Obama means is that the private sector is not willing to "go all the way downĒ.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    But wait, if you read today, I'll throw in much more stupid for free! Soledad O DUmmy below.
    "So, is the takeaway from this, the stimulus worked, so there should be another stimulus?" O'Brien asked after touting a survey of economists that included the Obama's former economic advisers.

    OK SO DUmb O Brien, If the stimulus actually worked, why would we need another? A question a nationally known DUmmy never thought about.
    Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.
