Has Obama Actually Accomplished Anything Positive in 5 Years?

My Mom always told me “if you can’t say something nice about someone it is best to say nothing”. Well, she passed away in 2001 when George W. Bush was still a shiny new president. Her circle of accumulated wisdom did not encompass the Barack Obama. And I suspect that she would have added “except […]

Folks, I don’t know how else to categorize this but we are living in a dying country.  Only 88,000 new jobs were added last month when we were expecting more like 188,000.  The unemployment rate, because of this terrible statistic, is down to 7.6% because so many people are no longer counted as if they […]

Bad economic news continues to roll in. AP reports today, “U.S. industrial production fell in August by the largest amount in more than three years as factories produced fewer cars and other manufactured goods and Hurricane Isaac triggered shutdowns along the Gulf Coast.

The Obama Economy: Dismal Jobs Data, The Economy Is Struggling, This Is What A Jobless Recovery Looks Like

Thanks Obama: The Car is STILL in the Ditch and Now We Are FLAT BROKE and Out of Gas!

During the 2008 election campaign, Candidate Barack Obama was fond of using the analogy that George Bush “drove the car in a ditch” to pertray an image that Bush had carelessly and perhaps recklessly caused the financial crisis in which America found itself. Here we are nearly four years later and the economy has yet […]

Will the Obamacare Mandate Cause More Home Foreclosures?

It might not seem probable that Obamacare could cause more foreclosures, particularly among the middle class, but these are not normal times. When the Progressives decided to force an unwanted bill and unaffordable entitlements down America’s collective throats, they had a particularly copious amount of disdain for anyone who declined to purchase Health Insurance because […]

Jobless Rate Drops to 8.6%; Obama Proves Figures Lie and Liars Figure

As I explained last month, there are two ways to get the unemployment rate down. And since the Obama Administration is well aware that a jobless rate of 8% or more historically spells doom for a second term, he is doing what he can to lower that number. The best way to shrink the number […]

Obama Approval Plunges in Gallup Poll

This is the biggest swing I have seen in the daily Gallup poll. President Obama’s Approval dropped 4 points and his disapproval jumped 5 – in one day. He now stands at 45% Approve and 48% Disapprove. A good part of this drop has to be the economy. But more than that, this marks the […]
