    He helps the rich get richer and enslaves the poor.

    He doesn't give a rat's ass about white middle class taxpayers.

    Obama's relative to a steaming pile of horse puck.

    Timely article. Just in time to take the focus away from the IRS.

    That's what they're hoping to get away with... not going to happen.

    instead of creating jobs and eliminating waste and fraud in the budget, barack is still giving campaign type speeches talking about the need for "equality!" great!!

    Lol it worked for him the first 4 years so he probably thinks if he keeps giving speeches that it will work again. When do the American people start feeling that actions speak louder than words?

    not surprising the WSJ would write an article that shows no causation, just correlation

    its not any surprise to anyone who doesn't have amnesia starting in Jan of 09, that inequality has risen after decades of Trickle Down, and an economic crash, where the rich were insulated, and millions of the middle/low lost their jobs

    private sector then used this as a boon, to increase worker's productivity that were left, hoard cash, and hire back at lower wages

    the crash just multiplied what has been happening for decades

    Let's assume for a minute that your theory is accurate, which it is in part....what has happened over the past 4.5 years? To you, he is bullet proof.

    those charts don't represent a theory, they represent reality

    the current president isn't bullet proof by any means, but it's bad journalism of the WSJ to write an article like that and not show specific causation. Cause and Effect are important here.

    The recipe is simple for the democrats....give everything to everybody

    for the rich....the game revolves around regulatory capture and corporate welfare.....all of which is granted

    for the poor.....expand entitlement programs for everyone across the board



    at the end of the day we are essentially a facsist state.....

    just another BS op-ed from not so bright Breitbart.

    just another example of creative editing by a con website(Breitbart)

    My question to the OP---- Why didn't you post the WSJ article without all the con spin?

    Getting hit hurts no matter who threw the punch. Just because it's someone you don't like is it any less painful.

    If everything about Obama and his administration that the media is now talking about had come out just 8 or 9 months ago, he would not have been reelected... Romney would have won.
