The president announced the formation of what he calls 'promise zones' in five cities this week.
Strikes me, it's another admission how badly his economic policies have failed over the past five years.
I see these more in line with being government pumped distraction zones chock full o' community organizers. Places intended to generate some positive headlines while the rest of America muddles through under this president. And I'm not the only one who sees it this way.
Don Dickinson and I discussed these promise zones, and other elements of progressive showmanship, on the January 10th Don and Doug program. The program is now available for replay.
One more thought. Obama's promise zones sound a lot like the Atlanta Project ex-present Jimmy Carter pushed in the early '90s. I seem to recall the Atlanta Project was only described as moderately successful. And, best I can tell, it's long since been forgotten.
