The fledgling Obama campaign in search of some way to right their sinking ship has latched on to the Occupy Wall Street mentality that but for the unfair capitalist free market system, we all would be enjoying tremendous prosperity. In his speech in Kansas yesterday the president referred to fairness 14 or 15 times. Charles Krauthammer pointed out that the campaign cannot run on it’s record; are you better off than you were 4 years ago? The blame George Bush tactic has lost steam and attempts to blame our current dismal economy on the world, (Arab Spring, European debt crisis, The tsunami in Japan) have not gained any traction so Obama is left with what he knows best from his community organizing days, blaming the rich and playing the class warfare card insisting that Obama defined and government mandated fairness will cure all that ails this nation.
This of course is non-sense. Decades ago, the great Milton Friedman explained the value of unfairness.
