Destroying Jobs, The Obama Way

Here's a puzzle.  Fill in the blank:

NLRB is to Boeing as Obama is to _______

a) Pelosi

b) Bill Ayers

c) Ahmadinejad

d) jobs

The answer is d.


"In a now-famous meeting last year with then White House budget direct Peter Orszag, CEOs from the Business Roundtable complained about the costs of regulation. Give me examples, Mr. Orszag said, and the BRT followed up with a 54-page list. A measure of the Administration's responsiveness is that the NLRB launched its assault on Boeing after the BRT provided those examples, and President Obama has refused to say a word of reproach to the agency. This is how you get economic growth of 0.8%."
