This has been a nightmare week for Barack Obama, without a doubt the worst of his presidency so far. Steven T. Miller, acting commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service has resigned over his agency’s targeting of conservative groups, which even The Washington Post labeled this morning a “horror story”.

This time is no different: shops are not busy, restaurant owners wait anxiously outside for customers and are usually disappointed, empty taxi cabs roam the streets. Two decades after its property bubble began to deflate, [...]
Michael Barone is correct, Obama really needs to stop taking advice from wealthy, limousine liberals.
If you were looking for advice on how tell a story that would impact millions upon millions of people, would you go to a director whose last four films were “War Horse,” “The Adventures of Tintin,” Indiana Jones 4,” and “Munich?”
But Team Obama did, and what they got in return was a continuation of the ongoing Spielberg flop-streak:

It seems like more bad news for the U.S. economy comes out almost every single day now.Â Unfortunately, things are about to get a whole lot worse.Â The mainstream media has been treating “Foreclosuregate” as if it is a minor nuisance, but the truth is that the lid is about to be publicly lifted on years and years of massive fraud in the U.S. mortgage [...]
Consider the real-life horror story of 20,000 white-collar workers at Delphi, a leading auto parts company spun off from GM a decade ago. As Washington rushed to nationalize the U.S. auto industry with $80 billion in taxpayer “rescue” funds and avoid contested court termination proceedings, the White House auto team schemed with Big Labor bosses to preserve UAW members’ costly [...]
We have not re-invented anything and we haven’t reinvigorated our economy for many decades. Clear back in 1968 we started borrowing $1 for each $1 of GDP growth. Each decade from then on, we got worse and we continued to use the same policies instead of re-inventing ourselves.
