Obama’s Economy To Defend

How’s Obama doing?

  1. Unemployment, which at 8.3 percent is the highest this long after a recession ended.
  2. 8.8 million jobs lost, just over 4 million jobs created.
  3. Long-term unemployment a “national crisis.”
  4. Adjusted for inflation, wages have fallen 0.8 percent.
  5. Economic growth has never been weaker in a postwar recovery.
  6. Falling home prices have slashed home equity.
  7. Consumer spending has never been so slack. Only once has job growth been slower.
  8. Growth-chilling uncertainty.

And that doesn’t include energy and its cost. Anyone would look at this and say, ‘Yeah, I’ll vote for more of that!’

  1. Dale is delusional not only in the blaming bush after three years but for thinking people in this country feels skin color matters more than policy. One has to wonder who the true racists are..

  2. Dale, please take your racial crap somewhere else and stick to his record. Besides, isn’t he as much white as he is black? I mean, if you want to talk genetics, that is the case. Matter of fact, I supported Herman Cain (if I’m not mistaken, he is all Black) in the primary. He is another good and capable ‘turnaround’ guy. Which, imho, is what we need.

    I’ve seen the polls where they over-sample democrats to republicans to get the results they want. But this topic isn’t about polls either. It’s about the stats of Obama’s performance so far, and the likelihood that he’ll make things better or worse if elected to a second term.

    There’s no evidence to suggest he’ll make things better. And by ‘better’ I mean, getting back to a balanced budget and reducing the national debt. Neither of which he and his advisers and Treasury Secretary have plans to do.

    It also means protecting and defending our Constitution. The document that presents Obama and his administration with their biggest obstacle. That’s the reason he says he’ll by-pass Congress if he has to. Like he did when he gutted welfare reform by re-defining the word “work” to include watching TV and sleeping.

    Compassion to Blacks is not measured in how many people he can keep on welfare. And, btw, there are more Whites on welfare than Blacks. It is measured by how many people don’t need welfare because they have a job. Black unemployment is in the teens. Black youth unemployment is at 50 percent.

    No, Obama is no friend of the poor and no friend to Blacks. He is simply trying to become America’s newest founding father by rejecting and dismissing the Constitution and over 200 years of American history.

  3. “The word “Bush” doesn’t appear in the article linked. After 3-1/2 years, even the AP has given up blaming Bush.”

    The public hasn’t. Poll after poll shows they blame Bush. After 8 years of Bush, including starting wars that we never should have been in, you would have to be an idiot to believe Obama could turn it around in 3 and a half year. Of course, he is a black man, and I know that bothers you Ross.

  4. His reelection would only mean four more years of these disastrous policies. Actually, that’s one of the reasons why I think that the Romney/Ryan ticket seems to be a better choice not only for the U.S. but for my country as well. Most Canadians were disappointed when President Obama didn’t approve the Keystone pipeline project and thus destroyed a promising prospect on the way to the economic recovery in both countries. More importantly, the interconnection between Canada and the U.S. is benefical not only for our national economy as a whole but also for the economic development in Canada’s regions which could best be seen when the recovery in the U.S. motor vehicle market positively influenced Toronto’s leading automotive industry. However, I’m afraid that Obama’s decisions could threaten such positive economic development and worsen the relationship between Canada and the U.S.

  5. Well, considering that it was the republicans and bush that got us into this, it will be very easy voting for Obama. Can’t wait to see him elected again.
