Obama's focus on basketball picks, not the economy, doesn't pan out

It looks like Barack Obama, who thinks tax hikes and bloated goverment will make America prosperous, is just as skilled at picking basketball games as he is at picking economic policies and Cabinet nominees.

CBS2 Chicago reports Obama, who hosted a public press conference where he announced his picks for the first round of the NCAA men's basketball tournament, picked only 11 correct results out of 16 games.  That would place him in just the twenty-seventh percentile among those competing in the CBS Bracket Challenge.

What should Barack Obama's teleprompter tell him to say in his next scripted press conference?

I agree with Libertarians and will stimulate the economy and create real jobs by cutting taxes.
20% (358 votes)
I agree with Libertarians and will call for an audit of the Federal Reserve.
13% (241 votes)
I agree with Libertarians and will repeal my wasteful "stimulus" package, along with its record-shattering debt.
33% (591 votes)
I agree with Libertarians and will end all corporate welfare and billionaire bailouts.
23% (410 votes)
I agree with Libertarians and will drop my crippling "carbon taxes" on air, which will eliminate 3-4 million jobs by 2030.
11% (202 votes)

Sundwall On Stimulus Scheme "No, With Amendments"

NIVERVILLE, NY -- Libertarian congressional candidate Eric Sundwall said today that if he had been in Congress he would have voted against Obama's economic stimulus plan but would have introduced amendments to make a bad bill somewhat better. "My position on the Obama plan is no with amendments. The notion of economic stimulus is misguided and false. The government's inflation of the monetary supply causes the boom and bust cycle. Unlike Tedisco who could not be bothered to take a stand for weeks then said yes with amendments and now no, I have always opposed the stimulus scheme.

Capital Freedom dissects the AIG issue

Libertarian economic blogger Meredith Jones points out the real source of greed in the AIG bonus hubbub -- government interference in the market.  Had government stayed out, AIG would have simply declared bankruptcy, restructured its business, righted itself and the court would not have allowed the bonuses to be paid.  But once government arrived with mountains of taxpayer cash, executives simply helped themselves to your money, citing their contracts with AIG.

Why government should stay out of the business of business

Remember last year when the automakers came crawling to Congress for a taxpayer-funded bailout, and lawmakers demanded they be forced to make more hybrid cars because that's what people want?

Well, that turns out to be another great example of why Obama, the Democrats and the Republicans are wrong when they tell private businesses what to sell.

And if American automakers do go out of business, throwing millions into unemployment, it will be because of government.
