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. As Barack Obama assumed office in January 2009 America was suffering from a severe recession.  Rahm Emanuel, his […]

ObamaNomics Vs The Little Guy & His Family

President Obama’s reelection campaign was based almost entirely on allegations that Mitt Romney was morally disqualified for office because he was “for the rich” while Obama was “for the little guy and his family.”  But since the first day of the Obama Administration it has been “the little guy” who needs employment, and his family, […]

Obama’s Inert Economy

How Mitt Romney Can Talk About Dependency

A lot of angry tweets and emails were hurled our way by Conservatives after my previous post regarding the infamous “47% video” of Romney’s fund raiser.  Most of them expressed the same sentiments: Romney’s right!  There are way too many people receiving subsidies and not paying income tax.  I agree.  But That’s not what Romney […]

The 47% “Secret Video” Revives Troubling Doubts

Mother Jones came to President Obama’s rescue with an urgently needed distraction from the meltdown of his foreign policy.  A surreptitiously recorded video of Mitt Romney addressing a private dinner meeting of high-end donors back in May includes some controversial remarks.  Predictably, sanctimonious indignation thundered from the establishment media, accusing Romney of arrogant contempt for half […]

Obama’s Gossamer Foreign Policy

Does President Obama really want to persuade voters that a trashy, amateur video obliterated his Mid-East policy? In defiance of common sense the Obama Administration continues to insist that attacks on at least five US embassies on the anniversary of 9-11, including the brutal murder of the US Ambassador to Libya, his two-man security detail […]

Unemployment Rate Is Much Worse Than It Looks

The September Jobs report published Friday by the labor Department was a deep disappointment. Only 96,000 jobs created in August, a pathetically small number, about a third fewer jobs than the monthly increase in the working age population. President Obama and his supporters, hoping for a positive response from recession weary voters, rushed to the […]
