Michael writes as if the Obama Administration is concerned about the economy and jobs. He isn't The only reason that he pretends to care is that it could affect his true objective of "Fundamentally Transforming America" Look for him to raise taxes where ever he can so that he can fund bigger and bigger government

Conservatives keep ASSuming. And we know what happens when a person assumes.

Radicals tell us who they are. Why do people like Barone not believe them? We need to stop assuming that everyone wants what is good and true and best. OBAMA does not want what is good and true and best for America. He wants America to fail.

From everything he says and does. From all the people with whom he surrounds himself. From the results of his actions. From the evidence that pours in every day that the failed prescriptions of communism and socialism do not work and his failure to heed that evidence.

From his failed policies in the Middle East. From his lying about the reason the Benghazi attack occurred.

From his lying . . .

Obama's Middle East policy is not Obama's policy. It's Bush II-Clinton-Bush I-Reagan-Carter's policy.

But the rest, spot on.

Open letter to President Obama:

Please stop trying to fundamentally change my country. To fundamentally
change something, one has to remove or destroy the foundation of the thing
that is to be changed. As President, you are charged with upholding the
Constitution of the United States of America. That would be the Constitution
that sprang from the fundamental truths conceptualized in the Declaration of
Independence, which just happens to be our founding document.

just follow his public life and associations and what little can be found on his private life.
this should answer any questions about his intentions re the USA
Our major public policies are based on the assumption that America will continue to enjoy growth. Economic growth and population growth.

Through most of our history, this assumption has proved to be correct. These days, not so much.

Last week, the Commerce Department announced that the gross domestic product shrunk by 0.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. And the Census Bureau reported that the U.S. birth rate in 2011 was 63.2 per 1,000 women age 15 to 44, the lowest ever recorded.

Slow economic growth and low population growth threaten to undermine entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare....
