Aside from Obama’s failed economic policies that Obama wants to double down on if given a second term, there is the Obama administration’s use of the levers of government power to reward its friends, e.g. Solyndra, and punish its enemies. Here is the latest example.
In August 2012, the Obama’s Justice Department intervened in a civil lawsuit against Gallup by a former Obama campaign operated filed in 2009 after Gallup refused to change its polling methods as the Obama campaign demanded and published unfavorable unemployment numbers. [Gallup surveys unemployment and does not “seasonally adjust” the numbers as does the government.]
This is Obama’s way; it is the Chicago way; but it should not be the American way.
