Uncertainty has been the big buzzword. No one wants to hire anyone because of uncertainty, according to Obama and the media. Really? I think the problem is the opposite.

It seems fairly certain that the environment for business is pretty terrible. The White House hates business and businessmen. The regulators have declared war on American business. Taxes have already gone up dramatically and the plan is to increase taxes even more. Litigation costs and employer mandates are an everyday reality. The minimum wage is up over 20 percent in just the last five years. So, what is uncertain?

If you want a good business environment, move your business to Asia or parts of Eastern Europe.

The problem that the US has is one of certainty, not uncertainty. Obama is a certain, calamitous, reality for American business and for American workers.
