Mr. Obama’s Very Very Busy Week

Since Obama tried to sneak in a trade agreement making it easier to outsource jobs to Korea after the newspapers have gone to bed, I thought it wise to catalog what a “productive” (in the Frederick Taylor sense) week he has had:

  1. Freeze pay of federal workers
  2. Attack Social Security
  3. Cut taxes for the stinking rich
  4. Censor Wikileaks
  5. Cut Food Stamps at a time of record reliance on them
  6. Make it easier to send manufacturing jobs to South Korea
  7. Fiddle while 10% of the country can’t find jobs
