Unlocking Obama's Economic Vision (Spoiler: It's Blurry)

You must also give your customers lots of free stuff. They'll love you and you'll have lots of customers. Of course, you won't be giving them what they reallly want or what they really need but it'll be free so that's all that counts. Plus, as we learned in the last election, free stuff equals freedom. Also, blame the mafia types you hire to steal the money from "the rich" (who will really be your customers) on your competition. That way, they will remain loyal customers while you steal far more than you ever give them.

Wednesday’s press conference marked the first occasion journalists have had to question the President directly – about anything – in eight months, and President Obama tipped his hat on his plans to confront the coming fiscal cliff with chastened House Republicans. In short, he will probably raise tax rates for the wealthy.

But thanks to an explosive and, as my colleague Donny Deutsch put it, testosterone-fueled defense of UN Ambassador Susan Rice, a lot of what the President also said about his plans to reduce the deficit went ignored. That’s a shame – they were quite illuminating.
