The convention pleas of Barack Obama for more time to fix the economy sounded more like begging for mercy than a plan of action. Only someone with a completely numbed brain who hadn’t been paying attention for the past four years could have fallen for it.
Naturally, the Democrat faithful lapped it up.
King Obama has already had too much time to fix the economy, as Friday’s unemployment numbers showed.
The Democrats’ demagogic faith in their “tax ‘em to help ‘em” strategy has kept the country at above 8 percent unemployment for 43 months. During that time, millions of unemployed people have given up hope of ever finding another job and dropped out of the labor pool entirely.
