The president recently told a campaign gathering that, "[W]e tried our plan â and it worked."
"Worked" apparently means something different to Obama than to, say, working Americans. Did the president mean that it "worked" when U.S. business startups dropped from 554,109 in 1987 to 394,623 in 2010?
When the president says "invest," he means the government should take money from people whether they want to give it or not, to pay for things they already have decided are not worth their voluntary investment. Think Solyndra.
In that same Virginia speech, the president described government "permitting" private-sector growth. Permitting? We have turned a significant corner when the government must permit private economic growth. It's yet a sharper left turn when we accept that not only is government permission required, but government subsidies and financing, too.

It's a pretty good article, worth reading it in its entirety and bookmarking it.
To me, âit workedâ means dividing Americans against each other. President Obama is a success

(French-like Democrats wave the white flag of surrender while we are winning)
As the president himself said, "Americans ... still believe in an America where anything's possible - they just don't think their leaders do."
I couldn't have said it better myself.

(Obama is pure evil.)
"Did the president mean that it "worked" when U.S. business startups dropped from 554,109 in 1987 to 394,623 in 2010? "
The plan is and always has been to destroy the USA, and the plan is working as designed.
