Last week the Bureau of Labor Statistics released a disingenuous report claiming that and additionsl 386,000 jobs had been created this year which boosted the Obama regime’s job creation record into positive territory. This report ignores increases population increases and other factors which indicate a fairer judgment is that about 10 million jobs have vanished under the regime.
In Florida, America’s Rain Man, Joe Biden, promised seniors that Obamacare would provide for free a colonoscopy based on a “feeling they had” and not on medical need. In doing this, and sanctioning the overuse of a procedure that is considered to be one of the most overused Medicare procedures, Biden demonstrated what is wrong with Medicare.
Glenn Kessler, notorious Obama fellatisto, awards Marc Thiessen “three Pinocchios” for reporting that Obama has attended his daily intelligence briefing less than half the time despite the claim being true. For this reprise of his infamous “true but false” finding on the Romney campaign, Kessler wins yet another Quad-Headie Award for denseness and duplicity in fact checking.
Yet another Recovery Summer ends under the pathetic Obama regime and we find employment down, labor force participation down, incomes down, production down, and GDP down. The only up is food stamp recipients and college loan defaults. And the regime and its media enablers can only tout cargo cult economics.
Yesterday Barack Obama unveiled his NewSpeak “economic patriotism” campaign. Far from developing a healthy middle class Obama’s economic plan has developed the largest dependency class this country has ever seen and what he proposes is more of the cargo cult economics that has gotten us into this predicament.
In two short weeks the Obama administration’s permuations of what happened in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 have been numerous. Now it appears the administration knew all along that the Benghazi consulate was targeted by a terrorist group and not a mob response to a movie that probably hasn’t been made. Now Republicans in the Senate and House are demanding answers. Fat chance they’ll get any.
Obama spokesperson Stephanie Cutter has made the bold assertion that women will turn out for Obama though he has done grievous harm to women and families both economically and socially. It can only be because she thinks women are stupid.
The fact that the State Department left slain Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens’ personal journal lying unattended should have been the first clue that there were more shoes to drop. Now we learn that details of our search for man portable air defense systems and the identities of Libyans we’ve recruited as intelligence sources have also been compromised. Apparently there are no limits to the incompetence of this administration.
This weekend Barack Obama portrayed our slaughtered diplomats and burned facilities as “bumps in the road” of his foreign policy. Far from being extraneous events, these tragic occurrences were the foreseeable outcome of a foreign policy driven by the administration’s desire to aggrandize itself by taking credit for events beyond its control or understanding. We can expect more “bumps in the road” in the future.
When Susan Rice took to the airwaves last Suinday to attempt to positively spin the misfeasance, malfeasance, and bone-jarring incompetence of the Obama administration’s actions in Egypt and Libya she either deliberately misled the American public or engaged in a massive mischaracterization of her knowledge of the situation. The past week has seen her story repudiated in all respects. She should resign as she was either part of a campaign of lies or she was a willing stooge.
Unsurprisingly, it turns out a political ally of Barack Obama was instrumental in the release from our custody at Guantanamo the man US intelligence has fingered as being the leader of the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi.
During Barack Obama’s recent interview with Spanish-language network Univision, he told a blatant lie about the genesis of Fast & Furious. This is what happens when a mediocrity like Obama is actually asked questions by a media that is more concerned with exploring a story than in getting a cocktail party invitation.
The Obama campaign comes up with an official salute for its acolytes. It seems like every great movement, based on following a great leader, needs an official salute. Funny that we’ve never needed one in America before.
A new GAO report reveals the federal government runs 160 housing programs. The challenge to a Romney presidency will not be to make these programs run efficiently but rather to divest the federal government of these programs altogether.
