1. Obama needs to GET OFF HIS ASS
And advocate direct employment by the government like we did in the 1930's with WPA and the CCC. He needs to stop focusing on "private sector" jobs and just start paying people to work for the government. Instead of allowing teachers, and firefighters to be vilified.l

I don't think he can do it. I think he is locked in a mental paradigm of free trade, free market, private sector, Chicago School economics. He will suffer the same fate as a president he greatly resembles: Herbert Hoover.
