Obama and the congressional Democrats are trying to convince us that they're focused on jobs, jobs, jobs.  They complain that Republicans aren't interested in "creating jobs".  

The Democrats have it bass-ackwards, as usual.  We need jobs in the private sector and the government cannot create those jobs.  Employers don't hire people to get tax credits, as the president seems to think.  They hire people because their business is growing and they need more employees to handle it.  Likewise, jobs don't grow the economy; it's the other way around.  The growth of the economy is what creates jobs.  

The best thing the government can do at this point is to just get out of the way. Quit trying to regulate the life out of businesses, ease the tax burdens on employers and watch the economy grow.  In other words, butt out!

The Democrats' 4H Club

There is certainly a lot of heated rhetoric flying about these days.  While this occurs on both ends of the political spectrum, the Democrats have taken it to new heights.  

The 4H club of the Democrats consists of four prongs:  hyperbole, histrionics, hypocrisy and hatefulness.  Some of the Democrats seem completely out of their minds, as they recklessly throw charges of racism and murderous intent around.   The tea party seems to have driven them crazy and as they see their power slipping away, the Dems have responded with over-the-top accusations that simply diminish their credibility. Mad Maxine Waters and crazed congressman Carson are but two of the more prominent Democrats out there spewing their demented rants while trying to stir up passion in their constituents.  So much for civility.  

President Obama, if he were any kind of leader, could and would put the damper on all this nonsense.  I believe these people are spewing their ridiculous rants because they have the tacit approval of the president.  Barack Obama - the most divisive president of my lifetime.
