It's the morning after Election Day 2012 and I am feeling numb.

Over the past four years, nearly three of which occurred after my layoff from a good job with a good company, I came to believe that the policies of the Obama administration were antithetical to a robust economic recovery after a deep recession. Instead of cutting tax rates, spending and regulations, the way Ronald Reagan did to stimulate a booming economic recovery nearly 30 years ago, President Obama did the opposite.

The results have been dismal: several years of chronically high unemployment, especially for young people, baby boomers and minorities.
