Obama is a master of rhetoric and spin. He is not a master of economics. He just doesn't grasp that an economy in which half the citizens depend on the State for everything is doomed to fail. Such a state in an invitation to tyranny as we trade freedom for "security" as defined by a paternalistic government. Hayek taught us that this was the road to serfdom.

Everyone should read his book before the election so they are equipped to see through the Obama administration B.S.
