Qualification for White House Press Secretary: Selective Amnesia

Jay Carney, White House Press Secretary recently announced that President Obama's upcoming proposal would (definitely this time) bring unemployment under 9%.  I know some of you are asking, "Now wait a minute, didn't they say that the stimulus package in 2009 would bring the unemployment under 8%?" and I can understand your confusion.  However, as Mr. Carney has explained, repeatedly apparently, we shouldn't "relitigate the battles of the past."  I ran that phrase through Google Translate and found out that it means, in plain English, "We're sick of you repeatedly pointing out to us the failures of Keynesianism, so if you wouldn't mind, please shut your pieholes."  Wow.  That Google Translate is powerful!
