Did Obama’s Economic Plan “Work”?

In a recent campaign speech about taxes, jobs and the economy the President bellowed: “Just like we’ve tried their [Republican’s] plan, we’ve tried our plan, and it worked.  That’s the difference.  That’s the choice in this election.  That’s why I’m running for a second term.” How, in the face of America’s ongoing economic misery could […]

Consequences of a Failed Economic Gamble

Two More Versions of What Obama Claims He Said

In one day the Obama campaign frantically pumped out two new videos with two new and conflicting claims regarding what Obama “really” said, when his actual words, recorded on video were: If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that.  Somebody else made that happen.

Obama’s Contempt for Entrepreneurs

Unprecedented Misery

Barack Obama’s bizarre comment regarding the most recent jobs report seems to indicate a profound disconnect from the grim reality Americans continue to suffer.
