How not to get out of a "deep hole"

Hillary Clinton was on This Week with George Stephanapoulos today (transcript here).  She described why she decided to serve in Obama’s cabinet, even after she’d made clear her belief (now validated by the world) that Obama’s nowhere near ready to be President.  The thought process she described helped me understand why Team Obama is so effective at making every situation it touches turn far worse:

“I thought, you know, we are in just so many deep holes that everybody had better grab a shovel and start digging out,” Clinton said.

Tell me, dear readers . . . if you were stuck in a deep hole, would you be using a shovel to get out?  Or would, perhaps, a rope or a ladder be a better solution?

    It is obvious that the Obamolinks can say anything they wish and the syncopants in the media just lap it up like it is sweet candy. The George S., and all tose other MSM who control the airways should be the first to be on line when everybody goes down. This scheme is better thant the Madoff finesse. Did you hear the latest piece of manure, unemployment is up to 9.5%, but The Messiah is going to create 600,000 new jobs by spending trillions in ‘Stimulus’ funds. How can this guy make statements and everybody simply genuflects accepting it as the Gospel. It must be on the “tablets” he brought down from the mountain, some funny smoke coming out of the O…** office. (Is that Oval or is that Oprah.)

    Haha. I thought the exact same thing when I saw a clip of that line. That’s why I googled it and ended up here. Another one you hear used by people a lot is, “we have to pull ourselves up by our own bootstraps.” (Which of course is impossible). Never understood that one either.

    I wish her luck though. We need progress.
