Trickle down tax cut fairy dust?

I thought fairy dust was one of the tools in Barack Obama's own presidential utility belt along with unicorn horn shavings, phoenix ashes, and griffin talons.

It is as simple as this---trickle down economics is highly effective, far more effective than the Keynesian approach our president applied early in his term by stimulating the economy and far more useful than the idea of wealth redistribution he is currently advocating, but when our nation has a president that does everything in his power to convince the people in this nation that the government will take care of them and that they have no need to do things for themselves---when he makes them feel like they are victims and that they are treated unfairly, well, as we can see, many people unfortunately believe him. And, in this belief and this false justification to find a source of blame for their circumstances, they are robbed of everything that makes being an American special and something to be proud of. 

The thing about the trickle down theory is that its results are based on an unleashed private sector and a government that gets the hell out of the way. Our current president has little interest in either of these two variables of the American equation.
