Don’t worry about your taxes, America! The Newsweek claims we are “back,” as in “who got lotsa money, we the Americas do, fap fap.” Attend the most exquisite restaurants and order only the choicest hares, tonight! Bathe in condor blood filtered through gold doubloons! BOOM! [Barry Ritholz]

  1. Canada City scoffs at your arrogance US America. Being smug about not getting sucked into the fizkal vortex you created IS OUR JOB (in the case of many Canada City folks who lost their actual paying jobs in this mess, the only one they have.)

  2. It’s the damndest thing how many US Americans are still attached to these awful magazines with their shitty “trend” stories used to stitch together three-of-anything in a vain attempt to make old news new. Plus editors in New York just rewrite field stuff (or stuff they crib from real sources) shamelessly. At least the local newspapers have coupons for discounts at the grocery store. And “Mary Worth.”

  3. Thank God Republicans managed to kill TARP, the Stimulus, and Health Care Reform! Otherwise that Newsweek cover would be all: “America is Finished!”

  4. [re=557146]V572625694[/re]: But, but . . . isn’t Wonkette a WaPo spinoff, and doesn’t it soothe us daily with journalistic excresence? Or a WaPo pissoff, maybe?

  5. [re=557156]Serolf Divad[/re]: Yeah really you would think the liberal media would have said that the Obama stimulus plan was working and helping to put people back to work and fix the mess. Oh wait a minute the liberal media is on a halucination brought about in Rush Limbaugh’s head by too many drugs. Nevermind.

  6. [re=557154]V572625694[/re]: I’m still trying figure out why they publish weekly newsmags in a breaking news, internet era but, then again, they still market TAB.

  7. [re=557157]Hooray For Anything[/re]: Yer not America – yer a socialism, uh – a communism, uh – a fascism!! Real America IS BACK, BABY!!! (Rich white guys are getting RICHER!)

  8. [re=557141]magic titty[/re]: Fine. Now work on the Knicks.

    At this point, I think on G_d can help the Knicks. And it’s pretty clear he doesn’t want to.

  9. [re=557162]chaste everywhere[/re]: I expect teh funnie, and am often rewarded. Plus actionably scandalous lies about Peggy Noonnanny. Those are sweeet.

  10. I’m sorry – I can’t read this story unless Newsweek puts it in a trendy iPad app with spinning 3d avatars that I can touch and spin around as I have a drink celebrating the death of print media.

    Or they could at least come up with a cover that wouldn’t hurt my eyes when I glance at it.

  11. [re=557181]GoinGreen[/re]: It’s always easier to declare a recession over when you make six figures and haven’t been laid off. I’d like for them to get a counter point from someone in Ohio or Detroit (or me) about their opinion on how America is doing

  12. [re=557146]V572625694[/re]: Maybe the Post can send some of that Kathleen Parker magic their way. There’s nothing like a conservative with the occasional dose of moderation to spell great thinking. Or better yet, just get Marc Thiessen to write for them, and it’ll make every other Newsweek piece look brilliant by comparison.

  13. When a mag like Newsweek has a cover like that, it usually signals the END of a trend. With the Foreclosure Holocaust just around the corner (foreclosures up 19% in March), it’s gonna start looking really ugly in the streets.

    I would be vewwy vewwy caweful about believing in this recovery.

    Just saying.

  14. YES!!! Like a manic coke-addict roaring out of the gutter, America’s BACK!… with absolutely no memory, remorse, or intention of mending it’s ways as it speeds full-throttle toward it’s next doomsday.


  15. [re=557262]proudgrampa[/re]: Unemployment claims went up again too. Yet Bernake just testified to Congress about how awesome things are and how awesome it’ll be to start worrying about that deficit.

  16. Hey, are those the bars for the cells that house the criminals who caused the entire meltdown?

    Oh no, those guys are free, got government bailouts and are making profits on a market that is rising from the crash they created.

    I guess that was actually a good plan. Win. And win. And, yet…another win.

  17. At least they put the Stevens headline on the Left and the Hate from the Right headline on the Right. Clever….or maybe we are looking at America’s back as she slides into the abyss….
