Pro-Business Rhetoric from ...Obama?

If you casually and credulously read Mr. Obama's words in todays Wall Street Journal, it sounds like he's advocating a pro-business review of federal regulations on the books.  A more careful parsing of the text, however, reveals that he's equally ready to make the regulations even more onerous to business.  And he can't help but get a partisan dig in, blaming the current recession on regulatory failure. 

I'd really like to believe that Mr. Obama was taking some lessons from November to heart, and was really going to do his best to ease regulations on businesses to help stoke our jobs engine.  The cynic in me says that this is just another crisis that he'll feel compelled to take advantage of.  Time will tell, and probably nothing else will.

Others are wondering similar things...
