What he'll suggest is more taxes to get back the taxes that he squandered in jobs programs and green eneregy bankruptcies in his first term!!

Doesn't do much good to "refocus on the economy" when you're not doing much to improve it, and the other party is stonewalling everything you actually DO.

But I guess it sounds good..

LOL, this guy is an idiot.

And again, the foundational issue of monetary policy will not be addressed.

National Debt in 2000 was $2T. National Debt now $56T.

Here is a good chart that shows it.

So anyone think that monetary policy needs to be addressed? Not this guy in the Oval office. Nor the idiot members of Congress.

so, is it going to be "laser like" focus?
or, the same nebulous bullshit focus he spewed the other 19 times he's "focused" on the economy?

i'm amazed he can do this with a straight face!

Do you really think Obama cares about the economy. He is to busy trying to enrich his friends and supporters with the time he has left in office. He will go down as the worst President in the history of our country. My only hope is the country isn't bankrupt by the time he leaves office.

All these companies who haven't re-hired staff yet, is this what they've been waiting for...?

They're waiting for predident Obama to get back to his office at the White House and focus like a laser beam on the economy?

I don't think so. By and large, America doesn't have a centralized, command driven economy. Government action is to a free market what rain is to a baseball game; it's typically only has a negative effect.

Nobody says: "Oh, yeah Washington D.C. is back from vacation! Let's everyone starting hiring again.".

Neoliberals and debt-hawks are a large part of the problem with our recovery from recession. The guy in the Oval Office knows that, at least.

The trouble is he's right, at least as far as debt-hawk, obstructionist partisan Republicans preventing a full recovery from taking place while basically sabotaging our economy by playing games with the debt ceiling.

Republican "free marketeers" do not have even a basic understanding of the economy. Period.

The problem is monetary.

Debt is money and money is debt.

We have a debt based currency system. That's the problem. And the creation is from banks. Government does not create money per Article 1 Section 8.

The Fed creates it in a computer out of nothing by changing decimal points. The other way is through the use of personal credit cards. Each time someone uses that credit card, it add's additional monies to the balance sheets of the banks that issued the card. And the banks are then creating money.

But the entire money supply is debt.

This is the problem that is never addressed. And everything revolves around money.

Want to build a bridge? Fix a road? Feed the poor? Bail out a bank? Start some new government program? Anything and everything revolves around money.

But with the present debt based currency system, in order to generate the money needed, they take out loans and create new debt in which we the people have to pay the interest and principle. When all they have to do (Congress) is create the money supply, issue it, cap the quantity, and regulate the value. No debt needed.

Maybe, maybe not. You are still not addressing the monetary issue though.

Blame political parties all you like. It's a fail argument.

Until the foundation of any economy is addressed, you blame is worthless.
