Alors! EuroCrats: Man Up or Move On!

The EuroCrats have finally sunk to a new low.  Even for the EuroCrats. 

They have a new plan

Sell the old plan like a sales manager at a pep rally for brush salesmen.


Did you do it before?


Did it work?


Don't do that!


Did you do it before?

Hip, hip hooray.

Did it work?

Hip, hip hooray.

Don't do that?

The reason why it didn't work is because we didn't have enthusiasm.  We didn't have momentum.  We were not excited about the product.

The WSJ: Reports from the EuroZone

The new plan is built on three central elements:

A new bailout for Greece,

An effort to shore up the banks affected by Greek losses - and potential future losses from other troubled euro zone countries

Additional firepower for the bloc's bailout fund, to provide a reassuring backstop.

That is the same plan.  What changed?  The enthusiasm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From the New York Times Headline News

G-20 Seeks Broader Solution for Europe Debt Crisis

François Baroin, the French finance minister, said after talks on Friday that officials had “already come to some agreements that will be very important,” but he did not elaborate.

Other quotes included enthusiasm and momentum.

At this point in time, the EuroCrats look like monkeys chasing their own tails and chattering with delight when they catch them.

There is nothing new but the flavour of a brush salesmen pep rally.

The EuroCrats are wallowing in their own academic lethargy, indolence, and sloth.  Despite the fact that they are all intelligent, educated, and experienced, they are still clutching retentively to their ideology like a two year old with his hands down his diaper.

The EuroCrats will not solve the problem with a multi-national dog & pony show; an empowerment & dignity festival; or a Smörgåsbord.

Since you refuse to take a great , bi, fat, hint and a half, I will take the initiative for you.

I will be posting a Greek Economic Development Project very shortly.

If you don't like it, IGNORE IT.
If you don't like it, TWEAK IT.

However, don't waste your time arguing with me.  You had a dozen chances.  You kept doing the same thing time and time again.

Did things get more high, good, better?


Did things get more low, bad, worse?


Don't do that stuff, anymore.

As I said before, "Put me in charge.  I can do just as bad a job, but I can come up with much better excuses.  The dog ate my economic development report."

Bon chance.


ps.  Did a French bank suffer a rating downgrade?  Did I not tell you that would happen?
