    @Brave Sir Robin: Exactly what has the president done that is any different from when the reps were in office?

    Yep, Obama believes in a free market economy. Always has.

    Well, except for the automotive industry. And airlines. And financial services. And healthcare.

    OK, maybe I was wrong.

    I don't get! What does our country make that's sellable to foreigners? Because of an abundance of regulations and trade agreements, has'nt most of our industry gone abroad? If we had anything to export, would'nt countries get it from China instead?

    Maybe Obama loves this country and would do his best to grow our economy. We need more than pep rally speeches.

    Well, hooray! Finally, we are talking about open markets. What about the efforts of Democratic Senators to force China to reduce the value of their Yuan against the Dollar? Already, hundreds of small businesses and many large businesses (aka Walmart, etc.), and the American Public are suffering because of higher prices due to this mis-placed zeal to curtail International Trade.

    I personally operate a small business which now depends on Chinese imports (due to the loss of suppliers in Americe due to "some" greedy Trade Unions) and my costs have increased more than 10% in one year because of these mis-guided efforts by the aforementioned Senators who are the very ones who say "How High" when their party leader says, "Jump".

    If this trend continues I will soon be out of business, along with hundreds of other small businesses. And this will just add to the high level of unemployment in America.

    By all means, let us say yes to a free and open market system.

    It's ironic that Jeffrey Immelt is a strong proponent of outsourcing. President Obama's drift to the center is the long awaited change we can believe in. His far left supporters must be furious.

    quid pro quo should become our motto.

    Obama free markets? Looks like the wolf has put on a new suit.

    What does he believe? Can anyone trust this guy?
