When mistakes are made which lead to negative consequences, most people learn take the lesson to heart and avoid repeating those mistakes. President Obama and the Democrat-majority Congress made a ton of mistakes during Obama's first two years in office. The people threw a large bunch of those Democrats out of their jobs in Congress; the Democratic super-majority in the Senate is a thing of the past and Republicans have a majority in the House. In other words, the people said Obama's "vision" was a mistake and elected new members of Congress who would do what the people wanted. As I said, most people would learn from their mistakes. President Obama hasn't.
President Obama spoke to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce today. In it, he tried to claim he understands the challenges businesses face, and also wants the government to work with business to get the economy back on track. What was clear is he is still just as clueless as always since he's never worked in the private sector during his entire professional career. Obama goes on with a regurgitation of the SOTU, highlighting the idiotic policies he wants the government to "invest" in.
Then Obama added a gem. I checked out the whole speech to see if the quote I will provide in a moment was taken out of context. It wasn't. RealClearPolitics has the video of this [emphasis mine]:
If we’re [we in the federal government] fighting to reform the tax code and increase exports to help you compete, the benefits can’t just translate into greater profits and bonuses for those at the top. They should be shared by American workers, who need to know that expanding trade and opening markets will lift their standard of living as well as your bottom line.
This man, our President, is still living in the bubble-world of Marxist "intellectuals" that run most of America's universities and leftist "think" tanks. He doesn't even know what a profit is or what is done with them. Does anyone really think Obama has any interest in working to help businesses in this country? Neither do I.
I don't know why the Chamber of Commerce gives Obama the time of day. In no way should they do anything but smile and nod at him, then figure out how to get this clown, and as many of the remaining Democrats in Congress, out of office.
And there are those who call Palin dumb. Of course, those are the same people who think Obama is some kind of knowledgeable individual.
