Obama Immunity To Reality

Contrary to the abundance of evidence that his "green jobs" initiative is a flop, Obama won't give up on it. In fact, in his own words: "I don't get it!"
Energy was a particular obsession of the president-elect's, and therefore a particular source of frustration. Week after week, [White House economic adviser Christina] Romer would march in with an estimate of the jobs all the investments in clean energy would produce; week after week, Obama would send her back to check the numbers. "I don't get it," he'd say. "We make these large-scale investments in infrastructure. What do you mean, there are no jobs?" But the numbers rarely budged.
This anecdote is particularly ironic given Obama's claim that Romney "doesn't know how the economy as a whole."
Obama doesn't even understand the one tiny sector of the economy about which he claims as his own.
