On Wednesday, the President gave a news conference to share his thoughts.
Viewers would have found it disappointing if there had been any viewers. The president is speaking, in effect, to an empty room.
From my notes five minutes in: "This wet blanket, this occupier of the least interesting corner of the faculty lounge, this joy-free zone, this inert gas." By the end I was certain he will never produce a successful stimulus because he is a human depression.
Actually I thought the worst thing you can say about a president: that he won't even make a good former president.
