Obama's jobs problem is simply the ineluctable result of abandonment of the Hamiltonian economics that made our country the strongest in world history - until the woolly headed economists of the early 1980s took over. Hamilton's American Plan governed our economy from 1781 to 1983 when Reagan imposed out last protective tariff - a 50% duty on imports of motorcycles designed to save Harley Davidson. It did. Reagan also told the Japanese auto makers that he would do the same to them unless they began to build here. They did. After that the free trade hoax took over - it enriched the CEOs while crushing the American worker. Unfortunately Obama's advisers are all anti-Hamiltonian just like the GOP economic advisers. Hence no solution to joblessness. It is permanent.

Hi Carol,

My head is spinning.

Being the front person in office, The President of The United States = No Sleep indeed. You have to be good at spinning plates and God forbid one drops, you're dead meat.

The war thing in my opnion, had become out of focus once we had OBL on the run and in our cross hairs at Tora Bora. There were no approvals from the top for us to persue. So what did we do? Right turn to Iraq. I'm still baffled by that. We were on a seek and destroy of Al Qaeda but decided to go after Saddam instead. I'm not a general, senator or congressman, but a big WTF does come to mind. Dalton Fury's book, Kill Bin Laden explains the sequence of events quite clearly. Not the best written, but you begin to get the point. I have biased opinions on the matter but will hold my tongue...for now.

I haven't watched The Tillman Story, I'll make a point see that.

Politics today have become one BIG finger pointing and passing blame mess from one party to the next and that is what gets my ire the most. What platform is any party running on? I'm confused.

Jobs-- The President can not create jobs as it were, but he can create an atmosphere to create jobs through tax breaks as an example, for those that do create the jobs. Infrastructure sure can use some help, I always vote for it. Need an extra 5 bucks taxed from me towards that end? Take it.

Racism-- to me is old hat and a cop out these days. It shows no backbone and is complete cowardice in my eyes. Just how many races are there in the good ol' USA today? I mean, c'mon please.

Tea Party-- Oh my God, what happened to our society?

Hair--Anybody with BIG hair is definitely NOT getting my vote.

Hope you are enjoying the weekend and feeling well.

Always a pleasure!

The Q&A Cafe is now in its 21st year. We launched in October 2001 at Nathans in Georgetown as a response to the September 11 terror attacks, and from that initial purpose grew into a weekly community interview lunch, the first "talk show in a bar." When Nathans closed in 2009 we moved to the Ritz Carlton Hotel and since 2015 our home has been The George Town Club. Some 500 notable individuals, from all fields, have appeared for interviews, which are taped and air Fridays on DC Cable. All are welcomed to attend. For reservations: 202-333-9330.
