"Enormous Change" (for the Worse)

CNN reports today that Valerie Jarrett, the White House senior adviser, told NBC's Meet the Press today that, President Obama has brought about "enormous change."

The first thing she cites is: "I think what we've seen is a dramatic difference in terms of how the United States is perceived around the world" - as if the United States' popularity with other countries, instead of how well President Obama has handled the economy or our national security, is the first standard by which we ought to judge him.

Then, she goes on to say that Obama has "pulled back the economy from the brink of disaster," and that "he's adding discipline in government to try to get control over our fiscal house," when the U.S. has had consistent double-digit unemployment since Mr. Obama came to office, and after he tried (but thankfully failed) to foist a budget-breaking socialized medicine scheme on the American people.

American government needs enormous change - starting with a new president and a new congress.
