What's Mallard raving about today?
Whenever I think Mallard Fillmore can't get more stupid, more wrong, it always turns out I am the one who is wrong.
First of all, though not mentioned here, apparent Vice President Biden said "Nobody wants these things, and if they don't want them, we shouldn't keep making them." Interesting that Mallard is quoting/agreeing with Biden, and yet does not have the guts to admit it.
Those of you with enough of an attention span to read beyond that first paragraph may also notice that Mallard is completely wrong and that, in fact, demand for the coins was quite high, almost 15% above projections. Mallard Fillmore: wrong. Again.
I find no evidence to substantiate Mallard's claim that they charged more for the Chester A. Arthur coins, so that fact appears to be, unsurprisingly, complete fiction.
Additionally, Mallard's claim that lack of demand is the reason said fictional price increase took place is ascribing fictional motives to a fictional event. So, you know, we're really moving into previously unimaginable dimensions of falsehood here.
And yet, if we took his claims about pricing at face value, the U.S. Government charged more and sold more, bringing to 14,000,008 the reasons why Mallard Fillmore doesn't know anything about anything, least of all business, and should not be listened to on any subject.
