If Obama wants the economy to accelerate, he first has to turn on the ignition

With the economy essentially a Tarantino bloodbath that could drown his bid for a second term, you would think that President Obama would be howling like a wolf instead of bleating like a lamb.
Despite several crummy economic reports, his poll numbers shrinking faster than Anthony Weiner and the announced departure of one of his top economic advisers, Obama insisted today that he isn’t worried about the nation falling into a double-dip recession but acknowledged that the recovery has “got to accelerate.”
Man, that’s a rather dry definition for something so wet with repercussions for him and all of us.
