Well, let's be provocative here: Obama is NOT interested in having the American economy improve even one iota. Think about it: He's resisted all reasonable compromise on economic growth and insists on ruinous tax increases. He won't compromise with anyone, and has orchestrated the Senate's failure to produce a budget. Why? He's not foolish . . . he's a Marxist who disdains all American institutions--he dissed the Supreme Court from the dais in the House of Representatives, and he has refused to negotiate for even one minute with Republicans over ANYTHING. Folks, this is the behavior of a man who said years ago that he was about to "fundamentally transform America." Don't you see it now? He wants to DESTROY capitalism.
