Economic Boomerang: Biden Throws Credit to Trump, Hits Obama, and Lands on Eisenhower

Washington D.C.–  President Biden made an audacious claim that the economic boom, often attributed to President Trump, was actually a direct result of his (Biden’s) policies. This comes hot on the heels of Trump’s insistence that his economic success was merely an extension of Obama’s efforts, which, Obama casually mentioned at a recent dinner, were simply a continuation of the robust groundwork laid by President Eisenhower in the 1950s.

“Look, folks,” Biden said, adjusting his aviator glasses with a grin, “It’s clear as day. Those 5G networks everyone’s so crazy about? Couldn’t have done it without Ike’s interstate highways. It’s all about foresight.” The statement sent ripples through the political sphere, with many questioning the intricate web of economic cause-and-effect.

North San Juan, CA, self-proclaimed conspiracy theorist and part-time Bigfoot hunter Skyy Wolford weighed in.

“It’s all connected, man. The highways, the internet, the moon landing – it’s like this big economic stew Eisenhower cooked up. Biden’s just adding the spices.”

A group of past and present presidents was reportedly caught in a temporal anomaly, leading to a heated debate in what witnesses described as a “presidential time loop.” Trump, seen wagging a finger at a bewildered Eisenhower, argued, “The real estate boom in the ’50s? Tremendous, really tremendous. And you’re welcome, by the way. Those tax cuts were all me.”

The spectacle continued as Obama, sipping a cup of coffee, interjected, “And let’s not forget my administration’s role in setting up the Internet. Those fiber optic cables? Part of the plan all along.”

Castro Valley, CA barista and self-proclaimed political pundit Loretta Splitz offered her take while frothing a cappuccino.

“It’s like watching your favorite reality show, but with more time travel and economic policy. Next thing you know, Washington will claim he set the stage for Silicon Valley because he grew hemp.”

The narrative shifted as presidents claimed credit for economic successes and passed the buck for historical mishaps. A solemn Obama admitted, “That 1929 stock market crash? My bad, guys. I might have overdone it with the optimism.”

Even Roosevelt was dragged into the fray, with an anonymous source claiming he heard FDR muttering about how the Dust Bowl was a clear mismanagement of weather-controlling tech from the Wilson era.

Gerty “The Gavel” McGuffin, a San Mateo County Superior Court judge and amateur historian, commented, “It’s like they’re playing hot potato with history. Next, we’ll hear Lincoln blaming Jefferson for the Wi-Fi dead zones.”

Further complicating matters, a secretive group known as “The EconoMasters,” comprising past presidents, was rumored to orchestrate these economic narratives from a hidden bunker beneath the White House. Reports suggest they’ve manipulated the space-time continuum to ensure their economic policies remain eternally relevant.

“I’ve seen the blueprints,” continued a whispering Wolford, whispering for some unknown reason. “The bunker’s real, and it’s powered by a perpetual motion machine designed by Benjamin Franklin himself. It’s Econ 101 in there but with more quantum.”

The concept of “quantum economics” was thrust into the spotlight as Dr. Emmet K. Flux, a professor with dubious credentials, claimed to have evidence of economic decisions rippling through time.

“It’s all quantum entanglement. Eisenhower’s highways linked to today’s 5G networks? Classic case of economic superposition.”

Splitz, pouring a latte art depiction of the space-time continuum, mused, “Quantum economics, huh? So, when I overcharge for these artisanal coffees, I’m not just boosting the local economy. I’m influencing the stock market of the 1920s!”

As the nation grapples with this new, convoluted understanding of economic policy and time travel, citizens remain divided. Some are fascinated by the intertwining of past and present decisions, while others are simply trying to figure out if their 401(k)s are now somehow influenced by the Louisiana Purchase.

Amid this chronological chaos, one thing remains clear: the economy is as much a product of careful planning as it is a whimsical ride through the annals of presidential history. And as for the next economic revelation? Sources say to keep an eye on the upcoming statement from the White House, rumored to involve Alexander Hamilton, cryptocurrency, and the invention of the toaster.
