    There's no evidence Obama has even a sketchy grasp of economics.

    by Fred Barnes

    Is President Obama an economic illiterate? Harsh as that sounds, there's growing evidence he understands little about economics and even less about economic growth or job creation. Yet, as we saw at last week's presidential press conference, he's undeterred from holding forth, with seeming confidence, on economic issues.

    Obama professes to believe in free market economics. But no one expects his policies to reflect the unfettered capitalism of a Milton Friedman. That's too much to ask. Demonstrating a passing acquaintance with free market ideas and how they might be used to fight the recession--that's not too much to ask.

    He only knows what his Wallstreet administration tell him about economics. Just as his secretary of state only knows what the CFR tells her about foreign policy.

    Why Obama is an economic illiterate

    Joe Hunt/The Daily
    Friday, January 30, 2009

    If you are a loyal member of the “Yes We Can” army, it would probably be best if you backed away from my column today. We are unlikely to be on friendly terms when this is all said and done.

    President Obama says he is going to save the United States economy through massive government spending and his ill-promised “trillion-dollar deficits.” It is going to fail. It has been tried before, and it has failed before. Only this time, it’s going to fail on a spectacularly massive scale, and here is a small explanation of why his policies have no chance whatsoever.

    The numbers do not add up. It is as if Obama is living in an academic fantasyland where he can apply Keynesian stimulus and Monetarist easing at the same time, whereas both schools thought their approach were mutually exclusive. You do both and you blow up the economy into hyperinflation.

    Then his plan for balancing the horrific deficits is to nationalize healthcare. Let's see, increase coverage, increase benefits, encourage usage - and overall costs go down??

    This is utter nonsense. Even his own budget does not swallow this tripe: it has a $600B "down payment" increase in healthcare for his plan. The CBO doubles that. That extra $1.2T is NOT included in the deficit projections in this chart. The deficit stretches out, widening in the out years - a completely untenable and irresponsible situation.

    SNIP

    We got into this pickle because Obama is over his head. He thinks like a Community Organizer: how to shake down "The Man" for goodies for his constituents. I guess that is all he knows, since that is all he ever did.

    If we would have pressed our time in to what has been determined by the Grand Design for this country to finally be destroyed from within by powerful men that hold no aliegence to any country, we might had quit watching the one thing that has grasp we the people, we may well have put more time into seeing what we should have done for many years and stopped sating in gront of a TV and watching sports and other amusements on the TV and do what was needed to keep this our nation protected from our enemy within. While we was lulled to sleep of what was/is going on in our country, we may have been more attenative of how they have pulled this treason over our eyes and have taken our nation over without firing a single shot. We learn from history if some of us would have studied world history and see how things have been pulled on us over and over again. How many times has the French Revolution has been done to our country and other Governing countries all because most people don't have a foggiest idea how our nation has been raped by people that answer to no one. For instance, why do they not put any control over ilegeal iImegra nts coming into this country. This is allowed for a purpose for there to be massive slaughter from all different cultures of people that will be used for that purpose ' in running this nations economy down to the point that our economy will go down to nearly onthing for our citizens to have and control of any freedon that have left to revive this nation to what we will ever gain back this country and It is our fault. Unless America bow their knees and call on the most high for this nation to ever prosper, then we are a doomed nation and we will deserve whay GOD has pronounced for this country. We will soon be a nation of controlled individuals who has been sent upon us by the anger of GOD. May GOD help us for we do not deserve any of his blessings. We have taken GOD and Abortions to the place that GOD is pouring his anger upon this nation. We have been a nation that has turned their hearts away from GOD and he is bringing judgement upon this nation. All through the Old Testament when a nation would honor GOD, he would give us his blessings and then when thet turned themselves away from GOD, then we would suffer the wrapth from. him. That is the GOD of the bible. May we return to GOD or suffer from his judgement.
