Posted on January 20, 2014 2:00 pm

I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone,” the president asserted, “and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward in helping to make sure our kids are getting the best education possible, to make sure that our businesses are getting the kind of support and help they need to grow and advance, to make sure that people are getting the skills that they need to get those jobs that our businesses are creating.

BARACK OBAMA, Press Conference, Jan. 14, 2014

“To make sure that any business over a ‘certain size’ is asphyxiated by the glob of inpenetrable regulations that I shove down its throat.”

    Wow, Obama has seen the light and realizes that right now, the exact opposite is true about all those things so he’s going to fix it, it’s about time.

    “…get those jobs that our businesses are creating.”

    “You’re on probation for ID theft? We can use you. What do you know about facilitating health care?”

    In practice, that’s backwards. Big businesses are generally better able to cope with regulation and grow even stronger in the anti-competitive environment that keeps potential rivals from innovating and blowing them out of the water.

    @4 – Yes & no. It’s usually the small businesses that accidentally grow large enough to pass the “government is gonna hammer you” threshold that suffer the most.

    Even so, I wouldn’t even wish these regs on Starbucks, Apple, or even Ben & Jerry’s.

    Well… maybe Ben & Jerry’s…

    When I grow up, I want to be President. And create jobs by fiat.

    I can do that, right?
