    Speeches vs Results

    Great leaders don't blame, or make excuses.

    They set the example.

    Have a good vacation Obama.

    reread your first paragraph, then read your second. They are in conflict. We import more, because foreign goods, in many instances, cost less. NOT because our workers re better paid. Just because someone has the most money to spend does NOT mean they are going to pay more for something than they have to.

    Only the naive believe that America can prosper while spending over a BILLION dollars more every single day on imports than other countries spend on our exports.

    The only reason America ever had the MOST PROSPEROUS economy was because America had the BEST PAID employees and consequently, American businesses had the customers with the most money to spend. American business owners are SO GREEDY that they are using free trade agreements, immigration, and deregulation to drive down wages and destroy benefits for American workers. In their quest for short term profits, employers are destroying their own customer base.

    BO knows as much about the economy as a cockroach knows about nuclear physics - probably less, given his abysmal performance.
