Obama and Democrats created high unemployment and blame Bush and others, Obama inherited 2 years of a Democrat controlled Congress, Unemployment and gas prices began climb in Jan 2007

“What do you think a stimulus is? It’s spending – that’s the whole point! Seriously.”…Barack Obama

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I, therefore, intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt.”…Barack Obama

“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″

The catalyst for this article came several days ago after a brief conversation with a young college student. It is my understanding that this young man is not a Obama supporter. However he believed that unemployment had gone down since Obama took office. I enlightened him.

Citizen Wells began quoting George Orwell early in 2008 for a reason. Obama, in concert with the mainstream media, has been telling non stop lies. One of the constant themes of lies has to do with the Obama stimulus bill and job creation and unemployment.

There has been much debate about whether or not Obama promised that the stimulus bill would keep unemployment at a maximum of 8 percent or not. It does not matter. Obama stated that the stimulus would save and create jobs and the following graph from a report prepared by Christina Romer and Jared Bernstein shows unemployment staying below 8 percent with the implementation of Obama’s stimulus bill.

The Washington Post has more on this.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/special/business/unemployment-predictions/

From Investors Business Daily February 17, 2012.

“Obama Stimulus Turns Three: What Has It Achieved?”

“Without any fanfare whatsoever from the White House, February 17 marks the three-year anniversary of the day President Obama signed the much ballyhooed stimulus into law.

At the time, Obama claimed that it would “create or save” up to 3.5 million jobs, and that “a new wave of innovation, activity and construction will be unleashed across America.” The stimulus, would, he promised””ignite spending by businesses and consumers” and bring “real and lasting change for generations to come.”

So three years later, how do the stimulus results stack up? Here’s where various indicators stood in or around February 2009, and where they stand today.

Unemployment rate: The jobless rate is unchanged from February 2009 to January 2012, the latest month for which we have data. Both stood at 8.3%, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Obama’s economists had initially predicted that with the stimulus, unemployment would stay below 8%.

Number of long-term unemployed: The number of workers who have been unable to find a job in 27 months or more has shot up 83%, with their ranks now at 5.5 million.

Civilian labor force: It has shrunk by 126,000. In past recoveries, the labor force climbed an average of more than 3 million over comparable time periods.

Labor force participation: The share of adults in the labor force — either looking or working — has dropped 3% — also highly unusual in a recovery. At 63.7%, labor force participation is at a low not seen since the middle of the very deep 1981-82 recession, when fewer women were in the work force. A lower participation rate makes the unemployment rate look better.

Household income: Median annual household income is about 7% below where it was in February 2009, according to the Sentier Research Household Income Index.

National debt: Up $4.5 trillion, or 41%, according to the Treasury Department’s monthly reports. The latest Treasury figures put the national debt at $15.4 trillion, larger than the entire U.S. economy.

Deficits: The deficit for fiscal year 2009 totaled $1.4 trillion. The Obama administration’s proposed deficit for 2012 is $1.3 trillion, which would mark the fourth year of deficits topping $1 trillion.

Gross Domestic Product: Real GDP has climbed just 6% between Q1 2009 and Q4 2011, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis.

Spending by consumers and businesses: Personal consumption has managed to climb 10% in the past three years, according to the BEA, but companies continue to hoard cash, with cash on hand up 27% since Q1 2009, according to the Federal Reserve Bank.

Stimulus price tag: The original estimate for the cost of the stimulus was $787 billion. Now the Congressional Budget Office says that, when all is said and done, it will have cost$825 billion .

Perhaps the best measure of the success or failure of the stimulus, however, is the fact that President Obama in his latest budget plan has called for still another round of stimulus spending, this time totaling $350 billion over the next four years, for what is labeled “short-term measures for jobs growth.””

The Democrats took control of Congress in January 2007. Obviously Obama inherited the damage they inflicted on the economy and made it worse.

    In a shocking development in the Operation Fast and Furious investigation, documents show Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents allowed grenade parts to walk in addition to guns.

    The emails also show Obama administration officials acknowledging that they may lose track of grenades but would still be able to accomplish their original objective even if the grenades explode.

  7. http://www.cnn.com/2012/04/26/politics/secret-service-scandal/

    Sen. Joe Lieberman, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said Wednesday that since the Colombia scandal broke, several whistle-blowers have called his committee with what he called “credible” reports of other incidents.

    But Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said Tuesday that his committee has heard allegations of similar misconduct by Secret Service agents dating back years. Issa offered no specifics.

    CORAL GABLES (LALATE) – An El Salvador Secret Service scandal is now prompting an San Salvador investigation by U.S. officials. Dania Suarez (photos below) is assisting U.S. officials with their investigation of the Colombia Secret Service scandal. But now officials are looking to interview women in San Salvador for a second, separate investigation. This time, Secret Service, FBI, and DEA agents are being linked in a pay-for-play scandal, while on duty, in El Salvador’s city of San Salvador.

  14. http://news.lalate.com/2012/04/26/el-salvador-secret-service-scandal-prompts-san-salvador-investigation/

    This week, Barack Obama defended the Secret Service. Moreover, he told news that it was only a “couple of knuckleheads” who were involved in the alleged wrongdoing.

    But officials disagree. Some believe that that Colombia scandal in Cartagena may have involved several dozen agents from different U.S. agencies. Officials have yet to comment about how many possible agents were involved in this second scandal.

    A second source, an unnamed U.S. government contractor who worked with the Secret Service during President Barack Obama’s visit to San Salvador in March 2011, now tells that a dozen Secret Service agents and a few U.S. military specialists attended a strip club in the city a few days before Obama’s visit.

    The owner of the club corroborated the allegations. The club owner verified that a large number of Secret Service agents, and some military escorts, “descended on his club” that week and were there at least three straight nights.

    Hey All,

    Rick Perry (remember him??, Mr “ooooppps”) said this:

    “Mitt Romney has earned the Republican presidential nomination through hard work, a strong organization, and [a] disciplined message of restoring America after nearly four years of failed job-killing policies from President [Barack] Obama and his administration.”

    UMMMM, no, Mitt got the nomination after Bachmann, Trump, Perry, Cain, Gingrich, were vilified in the media and by their “own”.

    oldsalt asked:

    “Pray tell, WHEN was Romney nominated?”

    Of course he got no reply, so I’d like to give it a try:

    Romney wasn’t “nominated”, he was CORONATED by the PTB in the Republican “establishment”.

    What we have now is choosing between Obama, and Obama.

    Great, just great.

    Gingrich had a friendly telephone conversation Wednesday with Romney and had started planning an event where he would throw his support behind the likely nominee, Gingrich spokesman R.C Hammond said. The pair agreed to work together to unite conservatives against President Barack Obama.

    “It’s clear Romney is the nominee and the focus should be on defeating Obama. We should not focus on defeating ourselves,” Gingrich told disappointed supporters in Kings Mountain, N.C., the morning after Romney tightened his grip on the nomination by sweeping primary contests in five states.

  35. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/04/26/secret-service-looking-into-latest-prostitution-claim-this-time-in-el-salvador/

    Responding to a rapidly evolving scandal, the Secret Service is looking into claims that its agents brought prostitutes back to their hotel rooms while in El Salvador ahead of President Obama’s visit in March 2011.

    The El Salvador report is the latest blow to both the Secret Service and the military in the widening scandal.

    Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, on a trip to South America, acknowledged that three Marines and an embassy employee were disciplined after allegedly hurting a prostitute in Brazil.

    The Washington Post also quoted several sources in an article earlier this week claiming that some of the agents implicated in the Colombia scandal are protesting their treatment by agency top brass — because senior employees supposedly tolerated similar incidents in the past.

    “It has happened before,” one agent told the Post. “This is not the first time.”

    Though Donovan downplayed the anonymous sources in these articles, the KIRO-TV report on El Salvador claimed the owner of the strip club in the incident confirmed U.S. Secret Service agents visited his club — allegedly for at least three consecutive nights.

    The owner said he doesn’t allow prostitution inside, though he couldn’t speak for what happens outside the club. The owner also reportedly said officials from the FBI, DEA and U.S. embassy routinely visit his club.

    It is going to be fun to watch as the Secret Service and others in the bo regime turn on bo to save their own skins.
