Obama’s Failed Economic Policies

President Obama is out campaigning for Americans to re-elect to a 2nd term after a failure to guide the economy to a status of prosperity that we can actually see and feel the results of; however it hasn’t happened and it wouldn’t under a 2nd term because he is a Chicago partisan ideologue who has failed to reach across party lines and triangulate the best ideas of both sides. Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan are two leaders who did and the country prospered. With that said let’s take a look at the latest jobs report, as I’ve told you before the Obama administration has changed the way unemployment is reported to keep the numbers lower than they really are to bamboozle the uninformed electorate, here are the numbers.

1. Unemployment rate dropped from 8.3% to 8.1% because 368,000 people stopped looking for work. During the GWB years and before the rate only dropped when around 200 to 300 thousand jobs were created in a month. During the Reagan recovery 1 million jobs were created in a month.

2. 43 straight months of unemployment over 8.0% and even as the Democrats proclaim of 30 straight months of job growth the average is around 150 thousand during that time period; however what about the other 14 months that they are trying to get us to forget. GWB had 52 straight months of economic growth during his 2 terms.

3. 96,000 jobs created in August is such a poor number and when you subtract the adjusted numbers for June and July of 41,000 job losses, there is 0nly a net of 55,000 jobs.

4. 63.5% of Americans working which is the lowest labor participation rate in 32 years and if the participation rate was the same as under GWB, the unemploymenht rate would be around 11.2%.

5. When President Obama took over office he said that the stimulus would keep unemployment at or below 8.0% and the unemployment rate was 7.8% it is 8.1% now and we already know how long it’s been over that number.

6. The median income was 55,000 and now it’s 51,000.

7. Gas was 1.85 a gallon and now it’s 3.78.

8. The National debt was 10.6T and now is 16T.

9. Our AAA rating was downgraded to AA+ on his watch because of his partisan ideology during last summer’s debt ceiling debates, Clinton and Reagan would have compromised and balanced the budget preventing this catastrophe.

10. The US dropped from 5th to 7th in the World in Economic status. When BHO took over in 2009 we were number 1 and this is the 3rd drop under his watch.

11. Check out the economic numbers here: http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2012/09/07/unemployment-rate-drops-to-8-1-percent-but-fewer-jobs-added/

12. And here: http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2012/09/07/white-house-jobs-report-further-evidence-that-recovery-is-working/


1. Here are the numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics: http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.htm

14. The President had Super Majorities in his first 2 years and rammed partisan legislation down our throats and still blames Republicans and GWB for what he did to fix it. News FLASH if his policies were good we would see and feel the fruits of his labor right now, just like the Reagan recovery. Clinton initiated his best policies after the Republicans were in charge of Congress in 1994 and Reagan worked with the Democrats for 8 years.

15. Mitt Romney is a proven leader and he worked with Democrats as Governor of Massachusetts and is an Outstanding Businessman to boot.

16. Thank you President Obama for your patriotic service; however the job was too big for you to handle because of your inexperience as a CEO, Leader and Rigid Idealology which prevented you from triangulating the best ideas of both parties, it’s time for BHO to GO!

And all of his cronies.....

Funkentelecky commented on Saturday, Sep 08, 2012 at 21:29 PM

Food stamp participation is also at an all-time high of 46.7 million in June 2012; however the name of the entitlement program has changed. The program is now called, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and administers 133 dollars a month to its participants. In January 2009 32 million Americans were on Food Stamps , bless my soul SNAP, in June 2012 it’s 47 million and I rounded out the numbers in this sentence.

Sheran and golfnut31316, thanks for your support and may the independent vote terminate President Obama on November 6th 2012!!!!

up2sumptin commented on Sunday, Sep 09, 2012 at 08:44 AM

The get program does not give $133 to each of it participaints. Just ask any senior. $133 per person is the Max entitlement. Benefits are income based and are adjusted according to income.

Thanks up2, it’s just a matter of wording if the government gives Peter $100 and Paul $166 the average distributed by the government is $133. See it here:

up2, you have said you like Barack Obama and that’s wonderful because a lot more people out there do to; however do you like his policies and can you separate the two circumstances and rate him on policies only? That is the intent of this blog.

Funkentelecky commented on Sunday, Sep 09, 2012 at 10:29 AM

As a leader you don’t blame other people for your circumstances, you go out and fix it. Why do progressives like President Obama think we are stupid? Why would you even blame somebody and call them names and proceed to do worse than that person in half the time! See it here:

I don't think I've said I liked or disliked him funky. I like some of his policies, like his stand on immigration, but dislike Obamacare. I don't think he is a bad man or even the worst president but once all the chips have been added up, I am ready for a change. I just wish we had more to choose from. Obama or Romney. The pot or the pan. Either eat we end up in the fire. I guess the question is who can keep our chestnuts out of the fire the longest.

My bad up2, I don’t like his policies because he doesn’t stand on principles. Last year he said he couldn’t do anything because congress hadn’t passed a bill to sign into law and this year with an election coming soon he signs an executive order to allow 800,000 illegal’s to stay here which will take jobs from legal citixens”It’s the right thing to do” he said. He swore uphold and defend the constitution, so as Chief Executive he shouldn’t have done that.

He said that you can’t pass healthcare with a 50+1 vote and can’t govern he did it with Obamacare and he lost full control of congress in 2010. Now it’s his turn to go because after all the partisan policies he rammed thru in 2009 and 2010 were good policies we would be seeing the fruits of his labor evolving into fruition like the Reagan recovery of the 80’s.

See his statement here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3s6BmR...

Mitt Romney wasn’t my 1st choice I wanted Businessman Herman Cain; however Romney has the experience and leadership to guide the country back to prosperity and he’s not a career politician only 4 years as Governor of Massachusetts with balances his ability to lead.

up2sumptin commented on Sunday, Sep 09, 2012 at 13:17 PM

I am going to disagree on immigration. Funky. What jobs are they taking? Unemployment sits at 8% or more, yet crops are rotting in the fields because we are too good toxic that kind of work. Think food prices are high, wait until you have to pay min wages to an American citizen to do it. Even then you will be hard pressed to get enough workers. Many immigration laws, IMHO, smack of racisim. I know that isn't a popular stand but it's how I feel.

Funkentelecky commented on Sunday, Sep 09, 2012 at 13:40 PM

Up2, it’s ok to disagree however you are just as wrong as he is because as the President it is his duty to uphold the laws on the books until they are changed thru amendments and passed thru congress. This is a classic example of Brother Jimmy calling GWB “Boy King”.

As a leader you don’t compromise principle and try to usurp policy, its ok for him to feel that way but don’t do it because it’s wrong.

Senator Marco Rubio was working on a bill in the senate and President signed the executive order to sway voters to re-elect him.

Funkentelecky commented on Sunday, Sep 09, 2012 at 13:43 PM

Up2, can you give an example of an immigration law that smacks racism. I have given clear examples to back up what I believe in.

up2sumptin commented on Sunday, Sep 09, 2012 at 13:50 PM

All I have today is my cell and it is hard to do the the research you are requesting and impossible to cut/paste links. I will most likely be sometime Monday before I can give you the info you want.

Funkentelecky commented on Sunday, Sep 09, 2012 at 14:03 PM

Thank you ma'am!

HMJC commented on Monday, Sep 10, 2012 at 08:28 AM

I would like to repeat the fact that leaders do not:

1. Continually blame thier non- performance on thier predecesors.

2. Make excuses for not achieving thier promises in a ample amount of time.

3. Using the : I just need a little more time to fix it" BS.

I am over it, fun meter is pegged out. Obama, you dont have to go , but ya cant stay here!

up2sumptin commented on Monday, Sep 10, 2012 at 18:58 PM

Here you go Funky, the information I promised you. My first source is from HUFF. I know they are a liberal’s liberal but sometimes they get it right (IMHO).

Thanks up2 for your feedback, I agree with President Obama’s personal stance on immigration not his political one. Immigration is a Federal responsibility by the constitution and Arizona cannot make law in regards to it without a constitutional amendment; however I agree when profiling you should do it according to who or whom is most likely to do it against us. I don’t consider that racist, I consider it as using common sense to protect American citizens.

Larry Elder , The Sage from South Central has written an interesting article about the President called; The Five ‘Reasons’ to Re-Elect Obama read it below as Larry dissects all of Obama’s about inheriting the worst economy since the Great Depression to the Bush Tax Cuts and 3 more topics below:

"President Obama started with a much weaker economy than I did. Listen to me now. No president - not me, not any of my predecessors - no one could have fully repaired all the damage that he found in just four years."

"Now - but he has - he has laid the foundations for a new, modern, successful economy of shared prosperity. And if you will renew the president's contract you will feel it. You will feel it." Brother Bill Clinton at the DNC.

The game has changed conservatives. Deregulation and tax cuts for the rich are "old man" politics. We need to step into the future not retreat from it.

JimmyMack commented on Thursday, Sep 13, 2012 at 13:37 PM

My man by a nose at the wire.

JimmyMack commented on Friday, Sep 14, 2012 at 12:15 PM

No matter who is at the help when we hit the financial cliff, it will not matter. It is gonna hurt everyone of us. What we do AFTER we hit the iceberg is what is important.

Republican's addiction to deregualtion, less taxes for the rich, No abortions no matter what for women, endorsement for a Federal mandate to not allow same sex marriages etc. etc. is NOT the answer.

Funkentelecky commented on Sunday, Sep 16, 2012 at 18:54 PM

I agree, let's hold him to his word on this one!

JimmyMack commented on Tuesday, Sep 18, 2012 at 13:48 PM

I do not believe anyone grasped the shear enormity of our financial crisis, including BHO in 2008. BHO has laid the foundation for recovery. A return to tried and failed economic policies is NOT the answer.

In a very very strange comparison: Adolph Hitler spent the German economy back to prosperity. For the wrong reasons of course.

On our side of things, General Motors is back, Chrysler is back, and the banks are regaining a foothold.

My man at the wire by a nose.

JimmyMack commented on Thursday, Sep 20, 2012 at 11:04 AM

Sebe, my man, I can see where your vote seems to be going in November. W. CONVINCED Colin Powell that there were WMD's in IRAQ and for America to enter into an unnecessary war leading us toward the downward spiral.

BTW: Colin voted FOR Obama in 08. Wonder why he did it??!!?!

Brother Jimmy, it didn’t matter that Colin Powell was convinced the laundry list of people convinced included Bill and Hillary Clinton too. Congress was convinced also as evidenced by a 97-1 vote in the Senate and over 300 of 435 votes in the House and that’s the ONLY FACT that really matters. The War was optional not unnecessary according to your opinion which I will respect; however I don’t understand how you disregard facts when you criticize a President you don’t agree with.

IMHO, Colin Powell voted for Obama because he is black and believed in the narrative ”Hope and Change” that he would reach across party lines, no red states or blue states but the United States, I will cut the deficit in half; however it was all smoke and mirrors.

After a failed record, and raising racial tension to an all time high I doubt if he will vote for him this time because Colin Powell is a man of principles
