Pity the poor small businessman. Up and at ‘em in the predawn hours, seven days a week, desperately balancing family with work, he pilots his fragile dream through the storm-tossed waters of President Barack Obama’s economy. And the President wants to take it all away.
In my remarks last week regarding the Vice Presidential tenure of Joe Biden, I mentioned that I would soon be subjecting Biden’s aspiring replacements to an examination.
