Will President Obama acknowledge what is obvious to many — that the state of the union is awful, and that his policies have accelerated this country’s fiscal woes? Tomorrow night I will begin listening to his address with an open mind. However, if he launches into yet another attack on the country’s producers, there will be no reason to continue to listen. I suspect the same reaction from a financial advisor I know, who is still in search of the hope and change he voted for. Last week, this Obama supporter shook his head over the president’s bank tax proposal, which will have a devastating impact on the economy and the advisor’s prospects for earning a living.

Mr. President, are you ready to acknowledge that Keynesian economics is NOT the solution? Are you ready to embrace free markets?
