How is the Obama Economy doing?

Sunday, July 22nd, 2012

Based on the recent check on economic health, not too bloody good.  Here are a couple of data points to add to the pile.

US poverty on track to rise to highest since 1960s

It’s just not the poor getting poorer, the rich are becoming less rich as the Obama regime sucks their money out of the private sector.

Wait! It gets worse!

According to CNBC: Earnings Show Recession May Be ‘Fast Approaching’

Just how is that Hopey Changey thing workin’ for ya?

A quick check of the economic health

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

Ok, we’re three and half years into the Obama Economy, let’s see where we are.

The Real unemployment rate is 14.9%

For the past three months in a row more Americans are going on disability rolls than are finding jobs.

President Barack Obama’s Jobs Council hasn’t met  for six months.  Clearly, job creation is not an issue our Dear Leader is very concerned about.

Expect your grocery bills to go up, since corn prices are at record highs. Next time you are at the market, take a look at what you are putting in your cart and how much of that is made with high fructose corn syrup.  Don’t forget the federal regulations requiring corn based ethanol in gasoline next time you are at the gas pump.

Obama’s Energy Department is  ‘Unable to Locate’ $500,000 in Equipment Bought With Stimulus Money.’  That is a half million tax payer dollars! The Energy Department didn’t earn that money, somebody else did (i.e. working Americans who pay federal taxes), and the “most transparent administration ever’ owes the American people a higher level of transparency than ” it would not be “appropriate” to release the name of stimulus-money recipient where the $500,000 worth of equipment could not be located.”

25 Out Of The Last 27 Times Retail Sales Collapsed Like This We Were In A Recession.

The Federal Post Office can’t make a payment to its retirement fund.

New unemployment claims are back up again.

Don’t worry though, President Barry says that the Private Sector is Doing Just Fine.

Oh, right, reality forced him to retract that statement.

Update: Here are a few more items.

U.S. Existing Home Sales Unexpectedly Drop To Eight-Month Low.  After three and a half years of the Obama Economy, items like this shouldn’t be “unexpected.”

Factory activity contracted for a second month in a row.

Consumer confidence dipped to 84.7.

Yet all leftists want to talk about is Gov. Romney’s taxes.

A Leftist sees through the hype and understands Obama

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

Matt Stoller is yet another leftist democrat who has buyer’s remorse over our Dear Leader. Here are the money quotes

 …[Obama’s] career in the Illinois state Senate was based on working for billionaire developers to destroy poor neighborhoods. Few really gets who he is, at his core, and almost no one is willing to publicly point it out. There are some who went to law school with him, who saw his enormous grasping social climbing tendencies, his eager corporate good old boy persona, his narcissistic calculations.


The truth is that he’s a narcissistic sociopath dressed up as a cool corporate brand. The real Obama parody is an Obama who wears an Air Force One fleece over an Obama t-shirt, who says to a reporter “Now hang on, let me finish, speaking slowly and avoiding your question, which is, by the way excellent.” He’s President, and if you’re upset with him, don’t worry, look at that beautiful photo of Obama smiling and pointing.

Bottom line, America elected an empty suit who doesn’t have the experience or temperament for the job.

He is loosing support in his base, for failing to deliver fast enough on wealth distribution.  He is also losing support from the independents who voted for him in 2004.

As more people find out more about our Dear Leader, the less popular he becomes.  Hyper-partisan leftists are responding to the results of Reality meeting Obama with desperate fear mongering attacks against anybody who dares to oppose their leader.  What else can they do? They certainly can’t defend Obama’s record as President.

HT to Jim Geraghty of the National Review for the link to Matt Stoller’s article.

Update: One of the trends we’re seeing more of is democrats running for reelection who are distancing themselves from our Dear Leader.   Add to the list, Missouri democrat Claire McCaskill.  She will not be attending the national democrat party convention this year.

“President Obama wanted to go to Wisconsin, but he just didn’t have time. He’s been doing so many campaign fundraisers lately he barely has time to play golf. ”
