President Obama is ripping into American companies for not "stepping up the plate" and putting Americans back to work. At one of his time-wasting "townhall" meetings on May 12, Mr. Obama complained that
Companies... [are] making a lot of money, and now's the time for them to start betting on American workers and American products."
He also slipped and said there's "nothing more important" than working for the government.
Democrats are angry at American business for not going on a hiring binge. After all, unemployment is a big factor in politics right now. Yet, Democrats detest corporate success. In the good old days, profits were a sign of success. In the land of left-believe, profit is a dirty word. On the very same day that Mr. Obama was telling American business - again - how to do their jobs, oil company CEOs were being grilled by Senate Democrats at a hostile hearing. Their crime? Making profits! Profits, we note, assisted by the idiot energy policies of liberals that inevitably drive the price of oil up.
Uncertainty in the marketplace, increasingly burdensome regulations, and higher fees and taxes - all derived from government actions - are hampering hiring. In a free market, companies love to expand and hire as they succeed. But in left-believe America, success is scorned and punished.
And then it is scorned some more for not helping the Obama-Democrat agenda in a timely manner.
Obama & Company... frittering our jobs away.
