Neil, one of my neighbors on Capitol Hill, recalled this story to me the other day after watching President Obama's town hall meeting: "She was recently widowed, about 93, having lost her husband of over 60 years. When I came upon her in a darkened church hallway, standing alone, staring at the floor, I wanted to know what was wrong.
"How are you?" he asked quietly.
"I've lost Ernest, you know," she said in a quavering voice, "and now I'm lost myself."
"I know how you feel," he said.
"No you don't," she snapped. It was a ferocious anger that left him stunned. "You don't know how I feel. You couldn't possibly. Don't tell me you know how I feel!"

Politicians keep telling them they know how voters feel, when they don't.
Velma Hart is a woman of immense dignity who spoke out about of what she fears is the death of the American Dream for her family.
"My husband and I have joked for years that we felt we were well beyond the franks and beans era of our lives. However, it's beginning to knock on our door, and starting to ring true that that might be where we're heading again.
"And, quite frankly, Mr. President, I need you to answer this honestly: Is this [franks and beans] my new reality?"
A 30-year-old law student follows her.

Isn't it amazing that team Obama offers no credible people who actually know something about economics to defend the tax increases we will soon have?
Sorry, Velma, somebody’s gotta pay. There’s no such thing as a free lunch.
Enough said that one sentence indicates the author has no clue at all how to create jobs.
Tax cuts alone aren’t the sole key to creating jobs. It takes a combination of lower taxes, less regulation, and right to work. Just don’t expect any liberal to utter those words.
One other key factor - reduce spending. Of course, that goes hand-in-hand with less regulation.
“Tax cuts aren’t key to creating jobs..”
It is precisely this notion which has gotten us where we are.
Any halfwit could open a history book and see what happens to nations - The Soviet Union, The PRC, Cuba, Laos, Vietnam come immediately to mind - which embrace the doctrine which holds that all assets are the property of The State.
The dung heap of history is topped with the corpses of such places.
