Unfortunately Obama is clever enough to realize the stupidity of today's population and is taking advantage of it daily. Equally unfortunate is the lack of ability from Conservatives to communicate the impending danger of such policies. Another 4 years of this insanity may very well leave us with little hope of recovery.

Now he wants to take even more and waste it on make work projects to satisfy the ignorant.

That sounds harsh, I know. But think it through with me. Because as the nation’s media has been obsessed about the “fiscal cliff” and whether or not the President and congressional Republicans will work out an agreement to forestall it, insufficient attention has been paid to how the President and...
