That summary can basically round out Obama's entire agenda and message. The standard of living for Americans is going to go down, one way or another. Obama has wanted that since he was in college. His agenda leans towards it. The circumstances of the global economy lead to that. All other BS aside, thats basically it. He wants our standard to go down. The circumstance for that to happen exists. Bend over America, we're gonna have some lifestyle adjustments to make. And Barack and Michelle are giddy about it.
