Tuesday Economics

The Economists in our secret basement laboratory recently set out to evaluate the Obama Administration's economic policy. After thoroughly researching reams of data they unanimously came to a conclusion. But, in order to communicate their findings to the rest of us in the lab they produced the following report:
The Obama Administration's Tuesday Economics

The Obama Administration's economic policy can be explained thusly:

J. Wellington Wimpy loves to eat hamburgers, but is too cheap to pay for them himself. Wimpy is Popeye's friend and is very intelligent, and well educated, but very lazy and gluttonous. His economic policy is demonstrated by Wimpy's attempts to con other citizens of the country into buying his lunch. Wimpy often tries to outwit fellow citizens with his convoluted logic. His famous line is "I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today". He has no intention of actually paying off the debt nor does he care if it ever is.
All the lab researchers, scientists, and staff left the short seminar knowing that they now actually understood Tuesday Economics; Obama's economic policy.
