    When you want your backed-up toilet fixed, you don't call a truck driver. We need our economy fixed. We need to have people who understand economics and business fixing the problem. But instead of securing the aid of people in the business community (I know, they're the evil, corrupt capitalists who got us into this mess... unless you look at just how the feds manipulated the sub-prime mortgage--Fannie and Freddie-- and government playing favorites and encouraging corruption instead of regulating it), we are relying on politicians and bureaucrats, many of whom have never even run a lemon-aid stand, to fix our economy. Hence, we get an agonizingly slow recovery.

    Couple that with the insertion of socialist mechanisms in our capitalist economy, and its no wonder that 14 million Americans have given up looking for work and are no longer counted in the unemployment numbers. This may be the new equilibrium unless we can get the feds back on a balanced budget and get them out of the private market, allowing only for minimal regulation to eliminate corruption.

    Weakest recovery ever thanks to an anti-business, anti-private sector demagogue infesting the WH more concerned with consolidating his party's power, assuming more control of your personal life, and demonizing the opposition than getting the country back on track.
