The Wall Street Journal wrote this past week that “President Obama made his fourth or fifth, or maybe it’s the seventh or eighth, pivot to the economy.” By another reporter’s count, the president has pivoted to supposedly make the economy a priority 19 times now.
That’s a lot of talk with very little action. If it’s really a priority, why must the topic be pivoted to so much?
What it all means to you is that this president is more concerned with using the sputtering economy as a talking point to occasionally change the subject. And to somehow blame Republicans for his record.
In short, Barack Obama has seen his track record, and he’s not going to take it anymore!
Obama claimed in his latest pivot to the economy that he wants to work with Republicans to get things going. But skipping out of Washington to make empty campaign-style, beat-opponents-over-the-head speeches won’t get the job done on jobs.
President, for goodness’ sake, you are term-limited; stop campaigning and start governing! Meet with Congress and find some common ground on the economy. ....

Obama’s much-vaunted “economic” speech was more about how to distribute the pie, rather than how to grow it for everyone. ...
Being an inveterate sports fan, you would think the president would appreciate the beauty of a system based on merit and individual ability, achievement and reward.
Why is a meritocracy in sports a good thing, but not elsewhere?
