If ANY of President Obama's attempts to boost the economy had worked, then people could find a reason to re-elect him.

Unfortunately for Obama, all of his big government "fixes" for the economy have been proven failures. And it's the economy wherein President Obama's possible re-election lies. And time is running out.

People who understand how economies work know from the "get go" that government is not the driver of an effective, sustainable economy.

It is the private sector where real jobs are made, and where the tax base is created that allows government the funding for it's projects.

Other than during a few notable periods, Federal, state and local governments have spent over 50 years enacting increasingly strict, duplicative, and excessive regulation upon business and industry, along with an increasingly complicated and expensive tax code, and now those "chickens have come home to roost".

They ONLY effective answer to our current economic situation is to free up people, businesses, and industry to do what they do best: Produce. It's time to roll back economy killing taxation and regulation so the United States can again compete on a world stage, and provide the framework for which a person can live life secure in the knowledge that the United States is still the nation where an individual can succeed.

Agreed. However, I will give props to President Obama for allowing the war on terror to continue in the same way it was run during the Bush administration.

On the job training for President Obama has definitely paid off in this area, considering the disdain for the war on terror he displayed during his campaign.

Now if he could just get his domestic policy, which is in total shambles, in order!

I don't remember him sending troops to some country that was not involved. He deserves props for doing his best to clean up Bush's mess as well

Because there was a new mission.

One single mission does not win any war. It is a series of missions that lead to victory.
