Unemployment Rate goes back up!

After Obama manipulated the unemployment numbers so he could win the November election, the unemployment rate has shot back up to over 8%. However, Obama has ensured that his devoted followers– who have sacrificed their values for a few extra dollars (the value of which continues to plummet)– will not suffer under this new Obameconomy: he has hired 101 new federal employees per day, using American taxdollars, since taking office in January 2008.

Update: In fact, the Federal Reserve has now projected that the unemployment rate “will stay elevated until late 2015.”

Update #2: The unemployment rate is the same in January 2013 (as Obama starts his second 4-year term) as it was on the day he took office in January 2009. NO PROGRESS WHATSOEVER.

Obama’s “Cash for Clunkers” program HARMED the environment!

Obama’s “Cash for Clunkers” program had 2 purposes:
1. Help the U.S. economy
2. Help the environment

Well, we already know that Obama’s “Cash for Clunkers” program was an administrative fiasco and wasted $3 billion of American taxpayer dollars. So, it certainly didn’t help the U.S. economy.

Now, we know that “Cash for Clunkers” actually HARMED the environment! By focusing on car shredding instead of car recycling, the “Cash for Clunkers” program “produced tons of unnecessary waste while doing little to curb greenhouse gas emissions.”

Obama’s “Cash for Clunkers” program impressively spent $3 billion to harm the environment. Shouldn’t there be an investigation?

Obama orders a pay raise for VP Joe Biden, Congress, and federal employees– DURING fiscal cliff negotiations

As the country teetered on the edge of the fiscal cliff (caused by excess government spending), Obama issued an executive order to raise the salaries of VP Joe Biden (to $231,900/year), Congress (to $174,900/year), and federal employees in general (~0.5% pay raise).  And what will these government pay raises cost American taxpayers? $11 billion.

Obama WANTS the U.S. to go over the fiscal cliff!

Not only is Obama ready and willing to take the U.S. over the fiscal cliff— he actually WANTS America to be brought to ruin! The wishy-washy Speaker of the House, Republican John Boehner, went so far as to offer to raise taxes on higher-income Americans in order to reach a deal– but Obama rejected this “major concession” from the Republicans!  

It turns out that the Democrats themselves proposed “that the House should vote to raise taxes on household incomes of more than $1 million” in May 2012!  But now, after the Republicans agreed to compromise in order to avert catastrophe, the Democrats “are urging their party’s lawmakers to vote against” their own proposal.

Despite a record number of needy families, Obama wastes $100 million on a fake inauguration ceremony.

The Salvation Army has reported a record number of families that need financial assistance this year.  Meanwhile, Obama insensitively plans to waste $100 million of taxpayer money on a FAKE public “inauguration ceremony”— while his real inauguration ceremony takes place privately indoors.

Obama doesn’t know what to do– so, he contacts MSNBC

Obama invited ultra-liberal MSNBC hosts, including Rachel Maddow and Al Sharpton, to discuss tax policy at the White House– because apparently Obama can’t figure it out and his cabinet isn’t qualified either.

Democrats don’t understand what’s happening.

It’s not very surprising that “Veruca Salt” would be whining about the effects of Obamacare after viciously attacking conservatives for opposing it. Maybe it would have been better for the Democrats to lose the 2012 election, so that they could pin the consequences of their failed policies on the Republicans (again)… but now, the Democrats have to deal with realities like Denny’s restaurants in Florida cutting employees’ work hours and adding a 5% Obamacare surcharge to customers’ bills. Will the Democrats try to boycott the entire U.S. economy?
