At his “Jobs Forum” yesterday, Obama said this:
It is only when the private sector starts to reinvest again, only when our businesses start hiring again and people start spending again and families start seeing improvement in their own lives again that we’re going to have the kind of economy that we want. That’s the measure of a real economic recovery.
So that’s why I’ve invited all of you here today. Many of you run businesses yourselves. Each of you is an expert on some aspect of job creation. Collectively, your views span the spectrum. That was deliberate. We’ve looking for fresh perspectives and new ideas.
I am open to every demonstrably good idea, and I want to take every responsible step to accelerate job creation.
In other words: Tell me what to tell you to tell people to do.
Such a mentality does not grasp the nature of man and the meaning of freedom.
Need I elaborate? Time permitting, I may do so this weekend.
