Obama Makes It Worse

“It” could refer to anything. Anything at all. In this case, though, I’m referring to unemployment. Well, maybe I’m referring to the economy overall. Unemployment rate rises to 9.1%, 54K jobs added « Hot Air Obama has increased regulation, seized entire industries (auto, student loans, commercial banking, medicine), and borrowed more money faster than all previous presidents combined. Obama is a one-dictator disaster. And an incompetent one at that. If you don’t have a job, Obama made it worse. Read more →

Get Good Candidates. Start Now.

Conservatives (tea party, et al) and Republicans better learn to get along. Quickly. Just as quickly, the two need to recruit, vet, and prep some A-list candidates.
