Perhaps if the President weren’t so busy fundraising in Colorado and playing pool with Democratic Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, he could see beyond the 8-ball. After Obama beat the governor at pool earlier this month, Hickenlooper told the press that Obama won because: “he’s obviously got a remarkable focus” and that “when he focused, he was really good.”

Great news! Obama is “really good” when he’s focused! The only problem is that Obama appears to be focused on the wrong things. Such as winning pool games. Or lavishing $250 - $1,000 of taxpayer money on each illegal immigrant minor a day, while neglecting to lower taxes or reduce regulations so that legal American children can dig themselves out of poverty, unemployment and homelessness.

In June, 15.2 percent of Millennials were unemployed according to Generation Opportunity. Over a third of Millennials were “homeless” during the Obama years—living at home with their parents or grandparents against their will. Finally, Millennials are struggling under the weight of historic levels of student loan debt and rising healthcare insurance premiums at a time when good jobs are scarce.

Back in the summer of 2010, President Obama and Vice President Biden were declaring it to be “recovery summer.” Well, here we are in the summer of 2014 and the recovery is yet to be seen.

We can recover this economy, but it will take individuals demanding free market solutions. Let’s audit the Federal Reserve. Let’s lower the corporate income tax rate to the lowest, not the highest, in the world. Let’s each opt out of Obamacare as I explain how to do in my new book titled, “Let Me Be Clear.” And, above all, lets frack.
