NRE 2009 Awards – Dumbest Thing Said

by @ 5:00 on January 3, 2010. Filed under NRE 2009 Awards.

Welcome to Day 3 of the NRE 2009 Awards. Today, we focus on the dumbest thing unleashed into the public consciousness. As a review/preview, here’s the rest of the schedule:

Jackass of the Year, 1/1
Thank You for Existing, yesterday
– News Story of the Year, tomorrow
– Person of the Year, 1/5

And the nominees are…

“Uh, a good, solid B+,” President Barack Obama describing what grade he’d give himself (from steveegg) – Outside of laying groundwork for a rule-by-fiat system and handing out “cash from his stash” (which itself was in the running), Obama has done absolutely, positively nothing. It doesn’t matter whether one looks at Teh Won’s record from the right, the middle, or the left – there is no actual “there” there. As of the 12/22/2009 Rasmussen daily tracking poll, more people strongly disapproved of Obama’s job performance than even somewhat-approved of it. I’d give him a gentleman’s D.

“We ‘misread’ the depth of the economic troubles we inherited and we still expect more new jobs in the long term as the spending pace from the $787 billion stimulus plan quickens,” Vice President Joe Biden (from RealDebate) – Hey Joe, you might want to start thinking about taking responsibility for your role in our current mess. Remember this one Joe?

“If we don’t pass it, here’s the guarantee…….. the federal government will go bankrupt,” Barack Ussein Obama (from silent E) – Economic GENIUS!!!!

“…that I inherited from the previous administration” (from Shoebox) – Never has there been a president who has taken so little responsibility for so many problems.

The system worked……. (silent E… Can I add another??) Janet Napolitano….. Mentally unequipped to perform her duties.

“Barack Obama is the most powerful writer since Julius Caesar. That has to be good for American artists.” (from Phineas) – That amazing bit of fawning nonsense was spoken by Rocco Landesman, head of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). Stalin would have blushed.
