Jarkesy was so disappointed with what President Obama was doing to the country, with his unconstitutional Executive Orders, his appointing communists as czars, surrounding himself with advisors with close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, closing down coal mines, and with his targeting Conservatives for persecution via the EPA, the IRS, and the SEC that he wrote a song called The Bad Obama Blues [9]


Jarkesy has always been a staunch Republican, and was an Eagle in the Republican party, both donating and bundling large sums of money for candidates up and down the ticket. He spoke out often on the unrest in America, often calling President Obama out for his tactics, being one of the first to call Obama a Communist on air. It was a deep seated dissatisfaction with what Obama was doing to the country that drove Jarkesy to put together a radio show,The George Jarkesy Radio show where He daily raged against the government over reach, about the abuse of power coming from the Whitehouse, about the administration's use of unelected bureaucrats in the EPA, IRS NSA, FBI and other agencies to target those that disagreed with him.

Being a proud Texan, Jarkesy openly embraced Congresman Kevin Brady's MAP Act (Maximizing America's Progress) which was designed to take all of the things that Texas had done right to have the most robust economy in the entire United States (In spite of obama, Jarkesy often noted) and to apply them at the federal level to turn our national economy around and get it back on track.

The Map Act one a frequent topic on The George Jarkesy Radio Show, and it, Sponsor, Congressman Kevin Brady was a regular guest, trying to rally support frm around the country for what several noted economists had called "the most important piece of economic legislation in several decades"

Jarkesy was cautioned more than once about being so out spoken about the Obama Administration. While bloggers and online radio shows often complain, their audience is far smaller than the wide audience that Jarkesy had in nearly a dozen large markets, and several friends, advisors and peers were concerned about Jarkesy making a target of himself while standing up for what he believed in. Being the Broadcast Activist that he is, Jarkesy just continued on, declaring, "If I don't stand up for the little guys, who will?"


Jarkesy has written numerous columns for a wide variety of papers and journals from “Global Warming” RIP, American Economy Needs Relief for,[10] to Solyndra, Solar Dreams, Bankruptcy and More Government Waste for,[11] to Golden Parachutes for the common American, Janet Yellen at the world! for [12] and Marx and Marshall Would Be Proud Of Obama's Attack On Religion for Town Hall's Money World,[13] Will We Have to Tell Our Grandchildren About How America Used to be? for Glenn Beck's The Blaze,[14] Taxapalooza for [15] and Steele got the job done for the Baltimore Sun.[16] While most of his writing was financial or economic in nature, the underlying theme was that the government under president Obama has been doing just about everything wrong for anyone wanting to build a business or grow an investment portfolio. There are few others in the media at his level that are as outspoken about the administration's economic policies and the devastation effect that they have had on out economy under Obama.
