The president's time is limited, and he's got no time like a member of Congress for hit-and-run needs. He has to lead for the real needs of the country.

The trouble with the economy is the economists who advise, oversee and, in some cases, even manipulate it. Their loyalties are more to their institutions and less to our nation.

The Trouble Today with the Economy
