But it still cost us millions in taxpayer dollars to fly this fool to a college where students are no doubt racking up student loans whose aggregate amount is probably more than the national debt so one day they may be the best qualified burger flippers in the world.
Someone (anyone?) please tell me why this Communist tool is flying all over the country blah, blahing about the economy. Government doesn't create jobs - except for starting some new agency and paying a bunch of bureaucrats with our tax dollars. How about those "navigators" who will be paid between $20.00 and $48.00 to help people sign up for Obamacare?
Keith Koffler dissects Obama's economy speech:
You’ve probably read that the series of speeches President Barack Obama started giving Wednesday are a “pivot” to the economy designed to rev things up. Well, they’re not. Obama’s speeches will be no less than the manifesto of a leftist president who plans to spend his remaining time in office installing as much of his big government “project” as possible by whatever means he can get away with.
If you got the wrong message, it’s because Washington reporters too often have a poor understanding of people who have a systematic philosophy and truly believe in what they are doing. Reporters, focused on who is up this day and who’s down the next, have difficulty discerning the intent of someone like Obama — who is thinking much more long term.
Obama, with his speeches, is intent on laying out the rationale and building public support for “fundamentally transforming America” — as he promised five days before being elected in 2008.
Speaking Wednesday at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, Obama presented a statist vision that should send chills down the spine of anyone who believes that free markets, not government, create wealth. READ THE REST
