Rush Limbaugh, talking this morning about the Magical Economy Tour, suggested that Obama would be able to convince a good number of Americans that prosperity is on the horizon ahead of us, if we will follow his policies.  Obama will emphasize his belief that – contrary to JFK’s aphorism about a rising tide lifting all boats – Continue reading “Eyes on the ball: Obama’s Magical Economy Tour has a purpose”
