Barack Obama, in a speech filled with patronizing platitudes to organized labor at an AFL-CIO event in Ohio, sought to protect his left flank today as union powers begin to express dissatisfaction with President Obama, who they heavily supported as candidate Obama. Obama was swept into office largely on the backs of union members as their respective unions raised hundreds of millions of dollars to aid in the election of the inexperienced junior Senator from Illinois.

With the President declining in the polls and the majority of Americans questioning his policies the pep rally in Ohio was timed to give the President a lift from one of his most ardent bases of support. The speech was fueled by pure high test Obama speak as he thanked the unions for transforming America from an industrial oligarchy to a nation that today embraces a strong middle class that exists solely due to the efforts of America’s labor movement as represented by their great unions.

On Obama’s path toward a workers paradise unions are praised, coddled and encouraged to expand their efforts to organize. Why wouldn’t they be,  given the President’s complete lack of executive experience or knowledge of real world business activity. The benefit to Barack Obama by increasing the ranks of organized labor, is that it consolidates additional power into the special interest groups that Obama is beholden to thereby assuring additional support for future Democrat campaigns.

Barack Obama is adrift in the sea of his own rhetoric. It was painful to watch the President of the United States pander to such a well defined special interest as represented by the AFL-CIO. A short while ago ceo4aday suggested that this President stop campaigning and begin governing. Obviously our plea as well as the pleas of millions of others fall on deaf ears as President Obama fails to listen to the public and hears only the rapture of his own voice as a nation waits for him to gain his footing and follow the right path.

It is ironic that on the same day that the President is pandering to the unions that he also appointed a new czar. Just one day after the resignation of the Green Jobs Czar, Van Jones, due to a variety of inappropriate comments and actions prior to joining the White House staff,  Obama has appointed Ron Bloom as the Manufacturing Czar. 

Any experienced operator in the manufacturing sector, would assure the President that America has suffered as a nation in the manufacturing sector because of  high costs that place extraordinary burdens on American manufacturers that are not shared by many other nations in the developing economies of the world. Unions in many cases are the direct cause of America’s shrinking manufacturing base as they place non competitive demands on American business.

We very much doubt that another Czar, appointed by this President with his ears in the clouds will have any substantive impact that will enhance or expand our manufacturing base. The President needs to listen to America. This nation wants to return to work to real jobs that provide or produce services or goods that create sustainable value not additional government services. This nation wants to stabilize the real estate market. This nation wants to progress along the path of sustainable free enterprise. Listen Mister President and you may hear the rumbling of a nation that wants to roar.

In what has been one of the quickest swings in Presidential popularity in the history of poll taking, President Barak Obama according to the latest Rasmussen Daily Tracking Poll is now viewed as favorable by only 47%  of likely voters. This has been one of the quickest and most extreme swings in Presidential popularity of a first year President in history.

Barack Obama who’s persona is increasingly being portrayed in the media as that of a silver tongued used car salesman must be shocked by the polling data and wonder why the wheels are coming off of the Barack the great redeemer wagon. The American electorate is clearly not responding positively to Obama’s consistent if vague message that we the government know what is best for you the American public.

The President, who has maintained a continual campaign since his inauguration has proved to be far more liberal then many voters perceived during the 2008 Presidential campaign. As a result of the President promoting the special interests of the environmental and union lobbies,  the public has moved increasingly to the center ,while the Obama administration and the liberal Democrat leadership of the Congress as portrayed by Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House and Harry Reid, theSenate Majority Leader, have been outed for their commitment to a progressive agenda that would increase the concentration of power in the federal government while diminishing individual choices and freedoms.

Barack Obama who has been a subject of progressive doctrinaire throughout his academic and political life is a true believer in the progressive cause and has filled his administration with loyal subjects. The public, which of late has been demeaned and is always underestimated by liberal and progressive elitists that include Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have awakened in the past few months to an America that progressing along a path never foreseen by the founding fathers. It should be of no surprise to most in the political arena that a back lash would develop against the President’s policies given that over time the majority of Americans find comfort in the center as opposed to the extremes of the left or the right.

Obama the campaigner is wearing thin on Americans tolerance who have become impatient with Obama’s failure to embrace principles of governing that contribute to the safety and security of America. They ask who is governing the nation id the President is coosistently and aggressively campaigning. The answer of course id in the swpecial interests that funded and promoted Barack Obama as a vessel of hope and change.

The hope in America today is that Congress will listen to their constituency, the American public and not allow this President to continue to guide this nation away from the founding principles and values that have been the foundation for this great nation . The hope in America today is that Congress will not enact the progressive legislation that this President is promoting but that courage and common sense will prevail and America will survive this Administration’s attempts at concentrating power and creating a progressive or socialist state.

Americans must continue to stand up and speak out for their individual rights. They must ignore the platitudes of the left and do what is right. They must take ownership of this nation and not bequeath their future to a progressive and misguided few.

The American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 will not be passed by the Senate this year as Americans grapple with a weak economy, rising unemployment, record budget deficits and eroding confidence in a President who appears to be misreading the pulse of the public while he attempts to impose a progressive domestic agenda on a nation who’s economic infrastructure is stressed to the brink of implosion.

The energy bill which barely passed the democratically controlled House is commonly referred to as cap and trade legislation and increasingly understood to be a cap and tax bill. The bill, which in addition to regulating greenhouse gas emissions significantly expands the energy and environmental  bureaucracy as it weaves its way through every thread of American life.

With the evident failure of Obama’s stimulus package dawning on the American electorate and no immediate solution being offered by Obama and his administration the tide of public support is turning against this most inexperienced of Presidents. As public pressure mounts on members of Congress the Presidents support in both the House and Senate will begin to wane as legislators begin to focus on the 2010 elections which are beginning to line up strategically for Republicans in many states.

Cap and Trade legislation is another leg on Obama’s anti business stool which include health care reform and a stimulus plan which failed to target stimulus funds for business to promote job creation. Obama who has been defending the stimulus package, which was nothing more than an entitlement bill, is in danger of  further damaging his relationship with the public as he attempts to sell a failed stimulus package as a plan that has worked and generated a positive impact on the economy.

The Federal Budget deficit officially surpassed $1 Trillion today as tax revenues from corporate and personal income taxes have declined significantly from Obama administration estimates. Barack Obama, intent upon redistributing wealth in America, has established a new deficit record and is not through spending yet as he continues to expand the scope of the Federal government .

The President who has appointed 34 various czars to oversee almost every conceivable aspect of American life is leading the nation along the path toward bankruptcy at an alarming pace. Unless the Congress begins to legislate with some element of common sense and begins to reign in the progressive agenda of Barack Obama this nation will have redistributed all of its remaining wealth to the creditor nations that are currently propping up the American economy.

The policies of Barack Obama are destructive to the American way of life and if left unchecked will result in the catastrophic dissolution of our free enterprise based economy. Our $1 Trillion deficit will grow exponentially if we fail to stem Obama’s lunatic spending. It is time for the President to park Air Force One in the hangar, put the teleprompter away and learn about the nation he has been elected to govern but, chosen to destroy through the execution of his progressive policies.

Barack Obama’s honeymoon with the American electorate is continuing to erode as the public begins to digest the catastrophic spending this President has approved and continues to propose with his radical progressive policies. With a call for a second stimulus package echoing through Washington and the media, the electorate is beginning to recognize that the progressive and transformational policies Obama supports are threatening the fiscal security of the nation as well as threatening the values and principles of this Democracy.

The failure of the  $787 Billion  American Recovery Act and Reinvestment Plan of 2009,  to provide any stimulus to the economy has begun to awaken the public to the distinct possibility that Barack Obama has an agenda that is harmful to this Republic. The vaunted stimulus package that Obama campaigned on Capitol Hill for as aggressively as he campaigned for the Presidency is proving to be the entitlement spending package that Ceo4aday and others wrote about several months ago. The stimulus package isa pay off to the unions that supported Obama during his Presidential campaign and is proving to be a bureaucratic and fiscal nightmare.

Today the White House announced that the web site AmericanRecovery.gov which was created to provide transparency to the public for the spending incorporated in the stimulus package will undergo an $18 million redesign to improve the site. The President should be ashamed and at the least embarrassed by this wasteful spending.

Obama’s penchant for spending and taxing while hiding behind Global Warming and Health Care will continue to plague his Presidency. This President who was swept into office on a wave of charisma and policy camouflage will see his relationship with the American public continue to erode as the Public becomes increasingly aware of the radical agenda of America’s most inexperienced and liberal President

Barack Obama continues to cede America’s position as the sole remaining super power in the world while his standings in the polls continue to decline. The latest Rasmussen daily tracking poll indicates that the popularity of the President has slipped to the lowest point since he was inaugurated. He now has a 52% approval rating versus 48% who do not approve of the President’s performance.

Obama has continued his diminution of America’s role in the world even to the point of down playing the contribution of America in ending the cold war. In Obama’s Eurotopian vision of the world no single nation should assume a mantle of power greater than any other nation. There is no place for a super power like the America we have known since the second world war.

The President has expressed the Obama Doctrine in speeches he has delivered throughout Europe, Latin America and the Middle East and most recently this week in Russia. As we struggle with a weakening economy amid cries for additional stimulus spending, the President is focused on a “reset”  of America’s interface with the rest of the world.

Obama is the first American President to place his priorities as a citizen of the world ahead of his role as a citizen of America. Barack Obama has proven that not only is he a socialist but he is also a revisionist through his interpretation and subsequent communication of the lesser role America has played during the last half century in promoting freedom and democratic values and principles.

His embrace of  the Global Warming agenda put forth by environmental and progressive fascists is symptomatic of a President who would risk further damage to our economy to bolster his standing with the weaker European nations whose approval he has continually courted. This President who came to office on a wave of charisma and a sense by many that he would govern from the center has chosen to be true to his extreme liberal roots.

He views America as a flawed and greedy nation that must begin to temper its national desire to be more and begin to accept less. His America is the America of great Global sacrifice. Just as he chooses to punish individuals who are successful through higher taxes and tighter regulatory controls of business he has elected to lead America down a Eurotopian path toward larger government and a diminished role for the private sector economy.

The Obama Doctrine is about providing less for America and more for the world.It is about lessening our competitiveness, weakening our defense and compromising our spirit. It is about an America with few beginnings and many endings.

Vice President Joe Biden has stated that the economic woes Americans are enduring are worse than the Obama administration had perceived them to be. Barack Obama and members of his administration spoke of the economy in January and February as they were promoting the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 as being the worst economy since the Great Depression of the 1930’s.

The administration used this sensational rhetoric to force a 787 billion dollar spending bill through Congress under the guise of a spending bill that was rife with social programs that had lain dormant in the dust bin of liberal dreams for decades. To date only 10% of the monies allocated for the stimulus package have been committed.

In Stimulus I,  small business and entrepreneurship were completely ignored. Ceo4aday has long advocated for a United States Office of Entrepreneurship that would operate as an independent government agency that would  provide venture capital for qualified entrepreneurs. A 25 billion dollar fund would have provided start up and expansion capital for numerous small businesses that would have been a cornerstone for job creation.

Now as the economy continues to falter Obama administration  officials are calling for a second stimulus. Stimulus II will have a much more difficult path through Congress than was the experience of  the current stimulus package. President Obama, who has been busy with his reset of Russian American relations has not commented as of yet but the majority whip in the House stated today that America may need a second stimulus package.  The Senate leadership in both parties however appear to agree that a second stimulus is not viable.

Barack Obama who has failed to impress on his current visit to Russia can not possibly support another stimulus plan. His unprecedented expansion of the Federal government and the continued  promotion of his progressive agenda  are beginning to resonate negatively with the American electorate. As unemployment continues to rise and the markets remain wary of the policies of  Barack Obama, the President will no doubt see his popularity continue to decline providing a stimulus for Republicans who stand to make gains in the 2010 elections.
