‘obamanomics’ may be an omics too far, warns pun Czar

‘It’s not like the good old days of Reaganomics’ bemoaned a Times opinion writer, ‘and we have given it a go. I mean, I noted the similarities to classic Keynesian theories but ‘Obamesian policy’ sounds like it’s to do with a hyperinflationary Pacific Islands dictatorship.’

The White House said it was taking the concerns seriously, with a spokesman promising they have a room full of TV pundits being tutored in saying Barack-onomics and fiscal Obam-ulus.
