Barack Obama’s Champagne And Reefer Muddy Waters Economic Forecast

Evah-thing, evah-thing, evah-thing goan’ be all right dis moanin’…

Over a third of the unemployed have been out of a job for more than a year. And there’s no prospect of improvement on the horizon.

But everything’s gonna be all right. Because we’re doing great. We’ve had some floods and stuff, that’s all.

We’ve always known that we’d have ups and downs on our way back from this recession. And over the past few months, the economy has experienced some tough headwinds — from natural disasters, to spikes in gas prices, to state and local budget cuts that have cost tens of thousands of cops and firefighters and teachers their jobs. The problems in Greece and in Europe, along with uncertainty over whether the debt limit here in the United States will be raised, have also made businesses hesitant to invest more aggressively.

Down here among the little people, the general assessment of the president’s analysis by the Barataria Rodent Economic Club is that he comes out of another Muddy Waters song…

Yeah bring me champagne when I’m thirsty.
Bring me reefer when I want to get high.
Yeah bring me champagne when I’m thirsty.
Bring me reefer when I want to get high.
Well you know when I’m lonely
Bring my woman set her right down here by my side.
Well you know there should be no law
on people that want to smoke a little dope.
Well you know there should be no law
on people that want to smoke a little dope.
Well you know it’s good for your head
And it relax your body don’t you know.

Everytime I get high
I lay my head down on my baby’s breast.
Well you know I lay down be quiet
Tryin’ to take my rest.
Well you know she done hug and kiss me
Says Muddy your one man that I love the best.

I’m gonna get high
Gonna get high just as sure as you know my name.
Y’know I’m gonna get so high this morning
It’s going to be a cryin’ shame.
Well you know I’m gonna stick with my reefer
Ain’t gonna be messin’ round with no cocaine.
