President Barack Obama contends that government-imposed 'share-the-wealth' schemes truly represent 'American values.' He lunched his tirade against wealthy American employers during his State of the Union address.
The BBC News reports that, "Obama urges economic fairness in State of the Union. US President Barack Obama has attacked income inequality as he set the tone for his re-election bid in his third State of the Union speech."
The White House continues to blame former President George W. Bush for the current Obama recession. In Obama's nationally televised address to Congress, he renewed calls for higher taxes on wealthy U.S. citizens, which is strongly opposed by Republicans.
According to the BBC, "he sounded a warning to his conservative opponents, as he added, 'I intend to fight obstruction with action, and I will oppose any effort to return to the very same policies that brought on this economic crisis in the first place.'"
Presently, more than 13 million Americans are unemployed and government debt is adrift at a record high of $15.2 trillion, an increase from $10.6 trillion when he assumed office.

With a leader like Obama, we will never "grow" our way out of this mess! He needs to be leading North Korea rather than America with his type of politics!

It is just silly slanted "stories" like this one that explains why this blog is such a ghost town. How many regulars are left now? Six? Seven?
PS: If Republicans are so concerned about jobs why did they sit on their hands at every mention of bringing US jobs back home? Why did they block the Demo effort to repeal tax breaks for sending US jobs overseas?
