Obama: Economy Will Get Worse Before It Gets Better

President-elect Barack Obama knows he will be coming into office on high expectations of hope and change. Obama knows full well that he cannot live up to those expectations.

So Obama is doing everything to lower the expectations of Americans before he assumes office.

In his interview that aired today with Tom Brokaw on Meet the Press Obama said the state of our economy "was going to get worse before it gets better."

By setting the expectations of Americans so low when things do get better, even marginally, sooner than expected then Obama will get all the credit. Throw in a synchopatic media and you have a formula for a second term in office before the first one even begins.

Although how he'll do that with a public works infrastructure project that digs holes for the sake of filling them in is anybody's guess. Call it a concrete objective without a foundation.
