While the First Family has certainly been enjoying its own lavish vacations around the world, all the appearances on its favorite late-night shows, extravagant celeb parties at the White House, and its endless rounds of ‘strenuous’ golf, many Americans have been experiencing a reality very much different from the Obama’s.
In fact, a ten-year-old girl recently handed her father’s resume’ to the First Lady, explaining how her dad has been out of a job for the past three years.
While the economy does tend to be an animal all of its own, many of us are well aware that the president’s domestic policies are not really contributing to a robust economic rebound very much at all.
Between the EPA’s closings of coal plants, the perpetual delay of the Keystone XL, the ACA’s (Affordable Care Act) additional taxes and burdensome mandates, and all the other latest government regulations (imposed on individuals and small businesses), it’s no wonder the Obama ‘recovery’ has been moving along at a snail’s pace.
Unfortunately, much like this ten-year-old girl who petitioned the First Lady, millions of Americans have already been demoralized into depending on Washington D.C. to solve all their problems, fueling today’s out-of-control, bloated government.
Of course, today’s Washington elitists won’t dare take responsibility for the problems they themselves have caused. Instead, they only continue to demonize hard-working Americans, repeating the “they didn’t build that” mantra to all their mindless foot soldiers.
If only President Obama would take a page out of Reagan’s playbook and just step out of the way to allow Americans to do what they do best: create and innovate—we may actually witness some genuine job growth (not just one that is cooked on the books).
Sadly, Obama appears to be standing by his Frank Marshall David playbook instead, still believing that Americans will have universal peace and happiness only as soon as we all give the government unlimited power over us.
