The political conventions have passed, the August jobs report is out, and many Americans are said to be “giving up hope.”
A small headline in the 2nd section of the Wall Street Journal last week told a bigger story than a lot of front page banner headlines. It said, "U.S. Firms Add Jobs, but Mostly Overseas."
Barack Obama recently campaigned in Ohio about the importance of his policies, “investing” in the future, investing in job training, health care and clean energy. With so much talk about investments, the president seems to want Americans to re-elect him for a second term because they believe that these are good investments and that he has invested the taxpayer’s money wisely.
You’ve probably seen the headlines - the J.O.B.S. bill passed in the Senate.
When it comes to regulations, President Obama’s message to his conservative critics seems to be: Message received. Early last year, he vowed to crack down on over-zealous rule-making, noting that the “rules have gotten out of balance” and “have had a chilling effect on growth and jobs.” He’s right -- they have.
America is showing her age. She had fun spending Sugar Daddy China’s cash; now she’s broke, tired and weak. Sadly, there’s no quick fix—no fancy wrinkle cream—that can erase decades of fiscal abuse from America’s face.

Understandably, they are being greeted as welcome news from a public desperate for job growth and economic recovery, and an end to the hardship, pain and misery that so many Americans have experienced over the last few years. But while I am all for good news, a couple of hard truths must be told as these numbers are scrutinized today.
If Americans listen to Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, and once thing is clear--he is a man who is extraordinarily ignorant of basic economics, how jobs are created, and he abhors the free market.
The real job creator in this ocuntry is a single bean-counter who works in a small room with a green eyeshade pulled over his head at the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). He creates jobs with the stroke of a pen.

With Rick Perry suddenly pushing a flat tax and Herman Cain substantively revising his popular 9-9-9 revenue plan, GOP candidates may finally refocus their feverish, fatuous immigration obsession, dropping an issue emphasis that’s destructive, distracting, demented and downright dumb.
