    I can hear Joe Biden laughing his teeth out at your “malarkey.” You’re clouding the issue with facts, sir.
    If you’ve ever written an article about the prevailing ideology at the institution of higher learning you work at, and how you cope with it, please direct me to it. I’d love to read about that.

    Great point you make! To play devil’s advocate…..are all 13 directly attributable to Obama? What about the natural business cycle that peaks and troughs? What about speculators in the oil and gas markets that drive crude prices up outside of presidential control? What about the fact that home prices continued to decline due to the housing burst that occurred before Obama took office? To clarify, i’m a conservative, just playing devil’s advocate.
