Doubling Down On Dumb

After getting off on the wrong exit from the highway of reality and wandering through the means streets of universal health care the President has driven the bus back to where the wrong turn was made. His back seat drivers have advised that he quickly look for Jobs Avenue. Having let us know he 'gets it' he is rushing to Ohio to talk about jobs... green jobs. I serious doubt the unemployed workers give a hoot about what political color the jobs are. All that matters is that in the end they have some green to deposit into their bank accounts.

This administration's efforts to stimulate an economic recovery remind me of the famous Gary Larson cartoon "Midvale School For The Gifted"

What the Democrats have never understood it that it is primarily small business that creates jobs, not the government.  It is the burden of government in taxation and regulation that place too heavy of a load on entrepreneurs  to encourage borrowing for business expansion.   They are trying to Push on a door that clearly says Pull.  

Here is my version of the problem:

They just don't get it. They can't lead, they are too self assured to ever follow, they need to just get out of our way. Leave the money in the private sector and we'll turn this thing around.
