By Any Standard Obama’s Jobs Record Fails

Last Jobs Report Before the Election

Measured by President Obama’s own criteria, his economic initiatives failed.  The November jobs report was released Friday.  The unemployment rate ticked up slightly to 7.9%.  Compared with the President’s predictions and promises this number represents massive failure.

Obama’s Debate Gaffe the Media Ignored

Can government pay for new infrastructure initiatives with imaginary money? The President has contradicted himself several times, most recently during the second debate.

Obama’s Small Business Tax Deception

During the Second Presidential Debate, to head off the valid criticism that his tax increase on “the wealthy” would curtail small business expansion and thus limit job creation, President Obama asserted this misleading, irrelevant statistic: So what I’ve said is, your first $250,000.00 worth of income, no change.

Obama’s Inert Economy

Desperate to make his case for reelection President Obama continuously reminds us that he began his term with an inherited recession.   If he does win the election his second term may well start with an inherited recession. Little noticed by the establishment media, the Commerce Department revised it’s estimate of second quarter economic growth downward […]

Obama’s Deficit Excuses are Preposterous

President Obama’s canned explanation for his enormous deficits is so ridiculous, so ludicrous, the so-called fact checkers of the establishment media would be spraying Pinocchios with a fire hose if he were a Republican.
