Could someone remind me what Obama is out there campaigning for? There have been so many special elections of late that I might have missed the fact the he is running to fill an unfinished term as Wayland’s dog catcher.

What I also can’t figure out is why Obama still misses the point that the Republicans beat Obama back on tax increases, held fast on sequestration, and, voila, the economy is improving. The one final impediment to more growth is Obamatax, a program which is expediting the industry trend toward eliminating the kind of full time work with benefits which comprises the oh so beloved middle class employment. Obama has even succeeded in pushing state and municipalities to challenge the idea of full time work, as the demise of Detroit makes clear that promises to former employees in terms of pensions aren’t carved in stone. Obama is forcing every employer of every stripe to view their employees as disposable meat, and then he blames everyone but himself. The cause and effect are amazing. Obama talk about the economy, rumors spread that Larry Summers, of all people, could take over the fed, and the market falls. Obama needs to just shut up. Or take a three year vacation. Or something.

The answer to economic stimulation is easy. More cuts. Fewer taxes. Repeal Obamatax.
