Everyday I surf the internet in an attempt to stay current on Republican and Democrat policy proposals. I also track the major poll numbers for President Obama and his would-be 2012 Republican rivals. It’s also fun to read press reports on the statements made by and about the 2012 presidential contenders, especially the current commander-in-chief. Although there is too much material to share here, a review of the day’s headlines tells a pretty clear tale.

Today President Obama stated that he will be proposing a specific, job creation agenda in September. He is over eighteen months into his failing Presidency.

A three-day campaign tour and a ten-day vacation is all that stands between Obama a growth agenda. Lets not hold our breath.
