Barack Obama is not merely uninformed on economics, he is enthusiastically misinformed. He says he keeps trying to fix the economic mess he "inherited", but nothing he does works. There has been absolutely nothing in @BarackObama's performance to date that suggests he can improve the economy if given 4 more years. Zip.— Brad Thor (@BradThor) The proof, as they say, is in the pudding. No matter how much a politician likes to proclaim his skill and wisdom -- and Barack Obama likes it as few others -- eventually the effects of his policies on the real world are what matter. Barack Obama has not done what he said he would do, because he can't.
