...This huge influx [of immigrants added to the labor force every year] ... threatens to depress further the wages of blue-collar Americans and put strains on an already overburdened safety net.  - Barack Obama, Audacity of Hope, 2006

Who knew??
So, if one knew that,and their intent was to Cloward-Piven the U.S., they would do what exactly?

If he was trying to shrink the workforce, stop startups, stall the economy and put as many people as possible on an assistance dependency track at every phase of their life (witness "Life of Julia"), what would he do differently?  Absolutely nothing!

Obama knew the influx of Hispanics hurts economic opportunity for American Blacks (see paragraph at the link before the one quoted) and he still won 98% of blacks on reelection promising open blorders.

Is this intentional or are they stupid or ignorant.  Both.  I actually think a lot of the ivory tower academics, even in economics, appear ignorant of basic forces in economics in their writing and policies. 

Liberals and leftists know they are giving up growth with their anti-growth policies but they think what is left of the economy will have no choice but to produce and fund the programs and freebies they desire.  (And The Dual Mission Fed will print the rest!) To them, getting their side reelected indefinitely is a far bigger win than peace or economic success.

But it is not the intent of Obama and the politicians that is crucial.  It is the intent of the Obama and his Democratic voter that matters.  They don't like Republicans but they also don't like what they are seeing behind their own curtain.  At some point the results of leftist over-reach government speak for themselves.  Now we see a good number of these people become what the experts call "persuadable".

Hagel leaving under pressure

Hagel was picked for his anti-war Republican credentials.  Also because he was considered a bit of a boob that wouldn't interfere with the White House could control the Defense Dept.  We will learn more as this unfolds.

Slow response to ISIS, Ebola.

Wasn't up to the job

Meanwhile, in a Shift, Obama Extends U.S. Role in Afghan Combat

Surrender isn't turning out to be the best peace strategy.

The Obama learning curve (or lack thereof) has been so painful to so many people on so many fronts.
