Obama's Policies Have Crushed the Economy (by Larry Elder)
Real Clear Politics ^ | Aug 15, 2013 | Larry Elder

The headline at CNN Money was, "Why America's Youth Aren't Finding Jobs."

If you expected an analysis of how and why President Barack Obama's policies hurt the job market for the young, think again. Believe it or not, CNN wrote a piece, supposedly explaining the tight job market, without using the following words: Obama, Obama administration, taxes, regulations, "stimulus" program or, of course, ObamaCare.

....

CNN's head-in-the-sand piece on youthful joblessness serves as the latest example of the pro-Obama media's failure, blindness and unwillingness to see and state the obvious. By historical standards, this recovery stinks. To understand why requires a repudiation of the very foundation of leftism.

Ask a liberal these questions:

Name ONE government program that has made hiring a new employee less expensive or easier?

At what point between 0-100% taxation does a person become a slave.

You will NEVER get a straight answer.

I'll say 20%. Oops, I'm not a liberal. I am, though! Liberal means free. A free thinker. That's me. But not a "Liberal".
