Sometimes there's nothing left to say, but Wow! The ignoratio elenchi periodically deployed by our President's detractors is buffoonery, albeit sometimes hilarious buffoonery.

The current Congress is unlikely to correct the imbalances created by predominately relying on monetary policy, financial shenanigans, and unproved economic dogma for sustainable economic growth.
Stated differently as the financial shenanigans unwind, dogma ditched, and global interest rates begin to trend negative bankers are pleading for fiscal help!
Hopefully, our next Congress will be

Our President to our neo-anarchists (aka libertarian extremists):
Free-rider navigation of our global economy is about to become choppier, Dramamine anyone?
Our neo-anarchists (aka libertarian extremists) have been spectacular at free-riding and crashing our global economy, but not so stellar at participating in the difficult research, development, and production necessary to obviate the inevitable and future harm.
Recent disclosures on the usage of "tax havens" indicate that some libertarian extremists (aka neo-anarchists) have no intentions of participating in the heavy lifting, which will be required to prepare our nation for the global competitive cooperation in the twenty-first-century.

UPDATED 06/21/2014 WH, Weekly Address: Bringing our Workplace Policies into the 21st Century
Our President is placing 21st century markers on a path for (re) building an inclusive/diverse, imaginative/innovative, and well-trained workforce/workplace1, notwithstanding an intransigent Congress that continues wandering in a deadly desert. Periodically stopping to rotate their map and survey their deadly desertscape hoping to recognize any familiar landmarks.
Eventually, Congress will stop rotating their map and figure out that it’s too old to be helpful—they’ll then need some 21st century markers to point the way.
Unsurprisingly, some in Congress are encouraging our President to begin wandering in a desert, too. Some concerned leaders, friends and supporters are cautioning against such a foolish desert foray, regardless of the past and preparation or expected conditions, duration, and map accuracy.

Our President and First Lady challenge educators and others to make college a reality for all our citizens, especially those whose developing conceptual capacity may be limited or stunted by circumstances, events or economics.
Wonder what correlation, if any, exists between the degree of a nation's freedom, security and future and the conceptual capacity of its citizenry? Reading today's headlines one might get the impression that our freedom, security and future is correlated with the quantity of hay our national security apparatus can sniff, sift, sort and store.

Fascinating research relevant to economic mobility—it's surprising to hear the speaker assert that correcting such self-delusional entitlement behavior requires only "gentle nudges" (not depicted or quantified in the video clip of the experiment).
One would not expect that our nation would be so paralyzed over budget and distributional imbalances if self-delusional entitlement behavior is so easily corrected with only "gentle nudges"!
In fact our wealthy are vociferously asserting that it's the self-delusional entitlement behavior of our poor that requires correction—and they're not using gentle nudges!
