A reporter for The Daily Signal used the occasion of the G20 Summit to take a look at President Obama’s leadership on the world stage and economic legacy.
I wish I could say that it’s been an impressive record, but the opposite is true, with the president’s lack of leadership creating a vacuum that has allowed radicalism to flourish, and his enthusiasm for overregulation and nanny-state paternalism choking capitalism and contributing to the sluggish recovery from the Great Recession.
Here’s what I told Daily Signal reporter Fred Lucas:
“The president has used one crisis after another to transform from a free enterprise system to a large social context that government can fix all our problems. If the private sector is working to support the public sector, we are not going to be competitive internationally.”
Of the G-20 summit: “It is a giant photo op, but business gets done through relationships. It’s a question of showing leadership, whether you are talking about the G-20 or other areas.”
