David Axelrod, President Barack Obama's top political adviser, took to the airwaves this morning and claimed that none of last night's participants in the GOP presidential debate offered ideas on how to create jobs. Granted, none of them waved a stack of papers containing an unaffordable stimulus plan in front of the cameras, but all of them brought reality to the discussion by affirming that government does not create jobs it can only destroy them. That's a fact that the president and his cronies desperately hope the majority of the voting public doesn't understand.

In his weekly radio address, President Barack Obama offered the same old list of what he calls "common sense ideas" followed by the same finger pointing at Congress for not implementing them. The problem is he's lying both about the sense most of these ideas make and that Congress, not his administration, is the reason the best of them has not been implemented.

In a speech that was more of his usual blaming, shaming and vaguely claiming he'll start leading soon; President Barack Obama took to the podium today to address the downgrade in our nation's credit rating. He started, almost an hour late, with a not-so-veiled swipe at his political opponents claiming the loss of our triple-A rating was caused by a lack of faith in our political system's "ability to act" and then he offered such nonsensical blather as "No matter what some agency may say, we've always been and always will be a triple-A country."

After a brief meeting with lawmakers this morning, President Barack Obama raised the nation's debt crisis conversation to a new level of ridiculous. Shortly after the meeting, the White House released a statement saying, "Congress should refrain from playing reckless political games with our economy. Instead, it should be responsible and do its job, avoiding default and cutting the deficit." Imagine how different the mood in Washington and the nation's economy would be if Mr. Obama had taken his own advice for the past two and a half years.

President Barack Obama sidestepped Congress on the war in Libya against the advice of his own legal team. He has announced a swifter troop withdrawal from Afghanistan than his own generals recommended. He continues to push for more government spending while all economic indicators show his spend-our-way-out-of-debt policies have failed miserably. There is little doubt that he is now making major decisions based on what he thinks is best for his own political future rather than for the good of the country, but his one-man-band approach shows more than the usual ambitious candidate, it shows a power-mad ruler desperately trying to hold onto (and increase) his power.
