Why, oh why, do you people even DISCUSS this issue as if Obama actually WANTS the economy to improve? It is clear, both by his actions and his comrades' (Soros, Moveon.org et. al.) that they want to DESTROY the private capitalist enterprise system and replace it with a permanent socialist governing structure. There are no reforms POSSIBLE that don't involve relief for investors (i.e., rich people) to invest in businesses that employ people.
Until conservatives actually address the ACTUAL problem, which is defending a currently successful campaign against private capital, then Obama is SUCCEEDING beyond his WILDEST DREAMS.
