He wont be afraid to say what the Republican candidates are afraid to say, even though they want to say it.
+1. Exactly. I added my last comment right after you posted this.

PRECISELY. I mean you nailed it on the head. I have no problem with the government spending money on people...I'm not a libertarian exactly, but WHERE you spend it means a lot. Sure, it sounds wonderful to directly invest in education and healthcare (can I smell the stench of vote grabbing? Only the ignorant will fall for that ploy), but when it comes down to the wire it is way more efficient to do exactly what you said: invest in peripheral industries that will HELP foster growth in the other sectors.
Totally agree. It's almost like his campaign for "CHANGE" should have gone into affect after his presidency...haha. Now we REALLY need to re-look at our actions. It sucks because I love the guy. His charm and social skills can really light up a room. But guess what? We voted in a fucking motivational speaker. I can't remember the last time I met a CEO of a successful company that was known as the 'nice guy."

Obama means well, but this term was a term meant for a businessman, not a social hippy. Hippies have their purpose and that is to limit market growth (sometimes its good cause it fights inflation and sees to it that people are treated fairly) but really..? NOW...?
+1. Agree as well.
