Obamanomics: Fundamentally Changing America
There are those who believe they now know what Obama meant when he said, "...fundamentally change America." Leaving aside, for the moment, the crushing national debt (which loony liberals think is irrelevant since we print our own money...LOL), high unemployment, Obamacare which is causing insurance premiums to dramatically rise. Instead, lets take a look at the cost of living in this country under Obamanomics. Since President Obama took over, gas has risen 83% (from $1.79/ga), ground beef has risen 24%, bacon has risen 22%. Even that American favorite, ice cream, has risen nearly 20%! That, my friends, is change you can believe in!!! The good news is that milk and eggs have barely risen over 2%. I guess there is some good to Obamanomics, right? I doubt anyone really believes that, especially those that have not been able to find a job for the past two or three years. Those "Shovel ready jobs weren't quite as shovel ready as we expected." You find that funny? President Obama did.
I am typing this up just prior to the State of the Union address last night. But, I am willing to bet President Obama will take credit for "green energy jobs creation" (Solyndra anyone?), unemployment falling down to 8.5% (without taking into consideration the huge number of people who have literally stopped looking for work or no longer eligible for unemployment insurance), and working to reduce the national debt on the backs of the U.S. military, while exempting Departments of Education and Energy. Gee, I wonder why? Could it have anything to do with unions? Maybe, maybe not. But, the fact of the matter is that Obamanomics is an abject failure. The President's hardcore belief that big government is the answer to all our nation's woes is not working. Government does not create jobs. Government creates debt. In regard to the latter, President Obama has proven that Obamanomics is a resounding success. Somehow, I don't think you'll hear the President mentioning that success in the State of the Union speech.
