"There seems to be a profound mistrust of the Obama administration and the Democratic Congress," says political guru Charlie Cook. "(It's) a sense that, at best, this president and Congress lack an understanding of small business. But among many, it goes much further than mistrust. They see Democrats in Washington as hostile forces that could implement policies that would effectively destroy their businesses," Mr. Cook adds. Translation: All that "change" has been shaken from their pockets and now President Hope is going after the paper money. ...
