With Iran in the middle of widespread unrest, I think it is important to look at what our President has said on the issue.

Now that we’re starting to get an idea of what President Obama’s economic knowledge is like, it’s starting to get a little worrisome. Taxpayer money is being thrown at hundreds of projects, like museums, sidewalks, libraries, and a trolley in Puerto Rico. Pushes for more “green energy” projects will do more to raise energy costs, which tends to hurt the economy as that cost is reflected in the price of milk and bread. Even Obama’s so-called tax cut is designed to cause hardship, as taxes aren’t being cut. When your income tax withholding is reduced, but the actual tax rates are not adjusted, it isn’t a tax cut at all. It’s a deferred payment, because you’ll either have to pay the money back in April 2010, or have your refund reduced.
So … is there a stimulus plan that could work? Is there an idea that could put an immediate cash infusion into the American economy? Could we, with one or two quick decisions, take action to put our economy on the fast-track again, while costing no more than the estimated one to three-and-a-half trillion dollars that Obama and the Democrat-controlled Congress have allocated so far?
As the arguments have gone on about how to bail out the US auto industry, I’ve thought a lot about it myself.I believe that the US auto industry can be saved with some rather simple steps. Primarily, these include such common-sense things as un-crippling the automakers, reforming the automotive market, and trying some innovative experimental tax reform.
As self-appointed advisor to President-Elect Obama, I am duty-bound to offer advice as I have it, on how to succeed in the office of president. Since I’m not tied to any particular field of work, I don’t have to limit my advice to economic, international, or domestic issues. Instead, I offer my advice for success of the man in the office itself. Today’s advice: Promise something to someone every single day you can.
When I look back through history at Democrat Presidents, the greatest personal successes came from those who promised a lot. Promises are an important tool in the Democrat arsenal, and one that you haven’t used to great effect so far.
In my new role as advisor to President-Elect Barack Obama, it is my duty to provide the best advice I can. The goal of this advice is to elevate the new President and the Democrat Party. I really wish my advice could be for the betterment of the United States and their citicens, but too often those two goals are mutually exclusive.
Today’s advice is this. Take credit for anything good that happens during your presidency. Add to that the following corollary. Give blame for anything bad to George Bush and the Republicans.
