It looks like Obama's economic policies can't be counted out as part of the reason James Holmes finally snapped. According to many sources, he was brilliant and was at the top of his class with the highest honors. He graduated in Neuroscience and had a promising future.......or did he under the Obama Administration? It looks as though he couldn't find a job in his field and was forced to take work part time at a McDonalds, a place that encourages minority employees. He must have felt humiliated having to stoop that low with such a high caliber college degree. This boils down to Obama's policies pertaining to job growth. It is non existent and he has refused to work with republicans on the issue in order to stimulate job growth. This is a sad day and the President should sit back and ponder that it is his policies that are pushing people on the brink. Massive foreclosures, high unemployment and affirmative action hires over qualified applicants like Holmes is a ingredient for disaster. This tragedy reminds me of the movie 'Falling Down' with Michael Douglas. The blame should partially be aimed at Barack Obama and his policies.
