The results of this administration prove Obama to be the worst president in modern history.... By his own standards by the way...
"We measure progress by how many people can find a job that pays the mortgage, whether you can put a little extra money away at the end of each month so you can someday watch your child receive her college diploma."-Barack Obama
He's overseen the longest stretch of over 8 percent unemployment since the Great Depression. Moreover the median household has lost just over 4 thousand dollars in annual income during this administration.
By his stated standards, this isn't "change". He failed to build on a concept he ran an entire campaign on.
"George Bush’s policies have taken us from a projected $5.6 trillion dollar surplus at the end of the Clinton Administration to massive deficits and nearly four trillion dollars in new debt today. We were promised a fiscal conservative. Instead, we got the most fiscally irresponsible administration in history."-Barack Obama
His own stated goal was to cut the deficit in half by now. He failed miserably and instead added 5.4 trillion dollars, dwarfing the amount added by the administration he himself labeled the "most fiscally irresponsible" in history.
"If John McCain’s policies were implemented, they would add $5.7 trillion to the national debt over the next decade. That isn’t fiscal conservatism, that’s what George Bush has done over the last eight years. Not only can working families not afford it, future generations can’t afford it. And we can’t allow it to happen in this election."-Barack Obama
Today by Obamas own projections the number is just over 7 trillion dollars over the next decade. The CBO puts it at just over 9 trillion. He himself states that we can't afford it and in fact can't allow it.
"Tonight, more Americans are out of work and more are working harder for less. More of you have lost your homes and even more are watching your home values plummet. More of you have cars you can't afford to drive, credit card bills you can't afford to pay, and tuition that's beyond your reach.
These challenges are not all of government's making. But the failure to respond is a direct result of a broken politics in Washington and the failed policies of George W. Bush."-Barack Obama
Today it's Obama's policies that have failed us.
Millions more Americans are in need of food stamps today than when Obama took office.
Americans have lost 40 percent of their net worth.
The average length of time on unemployment jumped from 20 weeks in 08 to 40 weeks today.
It's now Obama's administration that is overseeing the " broken politics in Washington" and have failed to address the economic crisis America is facing.
And all we have from Obama and the left are excuses, blame and explanations for the massive failure of this presidency.
His mantra has gone from "yes we can" to "no I couldn't".
