Re-inventing SBA and its Mission

Obama has a great opportunity to really help small businesses by announcing – as part of the next economic stimulus package – a re-invention of the SBA and its mission.

This unfortunately is something Obama never learned. Anyway the crowds cheered Obama and Gandhi for the same reasons, but Obama can only fail if his supporters don’t lobby him when he decides wrong.
