#1 Under Bill Clinton, the average unemployment rate was 5.2 percent. Under George W. Bush, the average unemployment rate was 5.3 percent. Under Barack Obama, things have been much worse. The month after he took office the unemployment rate rose above 8 percent and it has stayed there ever since.
#2 Under Barack Obama, the velocity of money (a very important indicator of economic health) has plunged to a post-World War II low.
#3 Real median household income has decreased by more than 4000 dollars since Barack Obama entered the White House.
#4 The United States has plenty of oil and we should not have to import it from the Middle East. Unfortunately, Barack Obama has an absolutely nightmarish energy policy. Under Bill Clinton, the number of drilling permits approved rose by 58 percent. Under George W. Bush, the number of drilling permits approved rose by 116 percent. Under Barack Obama, the number of drilling permits approved decreased by 36 percent.
#5 When Barack Obama took office, the average price of a gallon of gasoline was $1.85. Today, the average price of a gallon of gasoline is $3.71.
#6 Under Barack Obama, the United States has lost more than 300,000 education jobs.
#7 Since Barack Obama became president, the number of long-term unemployed Americans has risen from 2.7 million to 5.2 million.
#8 For the first time in the post-World War II era, the employment-population ratio has not bounced back after a recession. The percentage of working age Americans with a job has been below 59 percent for 35 months in a row.
#9 While Barack Obama has been president, U.S. home values have fallen by another 12 percent.
#10 More than three times as many new homes were sold in the United States in 2005 as will be sold in 2012.
#11 Electricity bills in the United States have risen faster than the overall rate of inflation for five years in a row. Thanks Obama.
#12 When Barack Obama first entered the White House, an ounce of gold was going for about $850. Today, the price of gold is over $1630 an ounce.
#13 Since 2008, our economy has lost 1.3 million jobs while at the same time 3.6 million more Americans have been added to Social Security’s disability insurance program.
#14 The number of Americans on food stamps has grown from 31.9 million when Barack Obama took office to 46.4 million today. How much more “hope and change” are we going to be able to endure?
#15 As I wrote about the other day, it is being projected that Obamacare will add 16 million more Americans to the Medicaid rolls.
#16 If you can believe it (and this really is hard to believe), more than half of all Americans are now at least partially financially dependent on the government.
#17 The total amount of money that the federal government gives directly to the American people has grown by 32 percent since Barack Obama became president.
#18 Under Barack Obama, federal spending as a percentage of GDP (25 percent) is the highest that it has been since World War II.
#19 The Obama administration has been spending money on some of the most insane things imaginable. For example, in 2011 the Obama administration spent $592,527 on a study that sought to figure out once and for all why chimpanzees throw poop.
#20 The U.S. government has run a budget deficit of well over a trillion dollars every single year under Barack Obama.
#21 Under Barack Obama, U.S. debt was downgraded from AAA status for the first time ever.
#22 Since Barack Obama took office, the U.S. national debt has increased by 50 percent.
#23 Since Barack Obama became president, the U.S. national debt has increased by an average of more than $64,000 per taxpayer.
#24 During the Obama administration, the U.S. national debt has grown more than it did from the time that George Washington became president to the beginning of Bill Clinton’s second term as president.

Do you think people are ignorant to believe this spin? Like Obama raised the unemployment rate to first few weeks he was in office? Are you joking. The first 12 months of any President are still under the previous president's policies. So Bush owned the 8% unemployment rate. Nobody has forgot how he tanked the economy. Duhhh. And I remember paying $4.00 a gallon for gas under Bush. Try again with some factual numbers that believable.

Do you realize that much of your first post is just absolute false? Was your tin foil hat not working properly?

Under Obama:
4.8 million new jobs created under Obama /4.4 million lost under Bush's last year.
Corporate profits are up 184%
S&P 500 up 145%
Real weekly earnings up .03 ( Needs improved with better wages.)
U.S. crude oil production up 67%
Wind and solar energy up 231%
Exports up 35%
These are facts as of 07/03/2014
Food stamps: Its true that 14.1 million more people signed up for food stamps under Obama but I bet Fox didn't tell you that 14.7 million signed up under Bush! So who is the true food stamp President?
One more huge fact is that wages are stagnant even with the record profits. We need more than just a minimum wage increase.

It debt was damn near 11 trillion when w left office. He took office when the debt was 5 trillion.

w said tax cuts would pay for themselves.....DID NOT

w said tax cuts would result in growth......DID NOT

our country had the worst economy since the great depression and that was started under a republican president.

How did w pay for war for no reason...he said.........Phuck it....

let all the next generation pay for it. It's funny how the teaturds cry "our children" We can't leave our children in debt. lmao. hypocrites

Reagan he went into office with a national debt of 934 billion

Reagan left office with a 2.6 trillion national debt. TRIPLING the debt.

You can try all you want but people know why our economy is the way it is.

The American people know if it wasn't for the republicans we wouldn't be in this mess.

That's why even in the state our country was in Obama got reelected.

You and all the teaturds can say Obama debt.....we know why and how it got that way.

I'm MR. GED and I approve my message of truth and facts.

Jerry,
If you had any grip on reality - you would know MOST of the money Obama has spent was to clean up BUSH'S MESS!!!

And, yes there are more people on foodstamps now - and the reason for this is this is a carry-over effect from the disasterous Bush years - when he destroyed our economy, jobs & consumer confidence.

Gradually,(without any help from Republicans) the economy is coming back - but, NO THANKS TO REPUBLICANS - since they've fought every move Obama has tried to make to restory our economy & our country!!!

Yes, a Republican administration DESTROYED OUR ECONOMY - and they are bound & determined this country will not be revived under Obama...

This amounts to nothing more than Republicans adding - INSULT ADDING TO INJURY...

For any SANE PARSON reading this post - you better think hard about this when you go to the to vote in November this year.

YOU NEED TO VOTE A STRAIGHT DEMOCRATIC TICKET!!!

Because, Republicans have demonstrated over & over & over & over that they don't give a hoot about working people, poor people, senior citizens & children...

REPUBLICANS ARE ONLY LOOKING OUT FOR THE WEALTHY & BIG BUSINESS - who line these Republican's pockets & fund their political campaigns...

Jerry, It's hard for me to believe - you yourself, are not benefiting from either Social security, Medicare, VA benefits or some other government program.

DID YOU KNOW THAT ALL OF THESE PROGRAMS CAME ABOUT BECAUSE OF DEMOCRATIC POLICIES????

Did you also know that the Republicans/Teaparty are wanting to dismantle these programs - which will hurt millions & millions of people (yourself included)?

Sounds like you're just biting the hand that feeds you...

No, this is not a tongue-in-cheek response - I've never been more serious about anything in my life!

You need to stop listening to all that right-wing rhetoric - because it's making you look stupid! No, let me rephrase that - It's making you into nothing but a BIG, STUPID, IGNORANT, RACIST IDIOT!!!

Oh, and while I'm at it - I'm disappointed with Phil Robertson & his family! While surfing the channels on tv the other night - I saw Phil, Si, & Willie on the Sean Hannity show. And, they were really bashing the Obama administration right along with Hannity.

It seems this sqeeky clean Christian family have sold out & turned into nothing but a shill for the Republican party. It seems someone in their family is running for office on the Republican ticket...

No doubt, this will cause their tv ratings to sink even lower. If they keep on running their mouth - soon, their show will be cancelled. I know I hardly ever watch their show anymore - because, I feel I've been deceived..

These are the "facts" that make Obama the worst president since Nero demanded worship and burned down Rome.
I just hope America can survive two more years of his incompetent and corrupt rule. Even most democrats have come to realize what a POS he is.

While I sit here "LAUGHING" at how "serious" G.I. Jerry and Comrade pretend to be, I cant help but laugh even more when I read where the GOP and the Tea Party are going to war with one another over a election in MS.

Gov Rick Perry refused to meet Obama at the airport, even refusing to shake the POTUS hand......and the GOP and Tea Party say theyre not about hatred or racism....just like G.I. Jerry and CW claim to be

I'm laughing still....IMPLODE!!!

Predicted by Gene in 2012
FACT in 2013 Results are obvious on who is more apt to be correct on their predictions in Topix. Lord knows I'm still waiting on that $5 gas by election day in 2012 that Comrade Winston predicted......then lets see how Perry, Palin, Santorium, Cain, Beck, Trump, Romney were all going to be POTUS in 2012....oh and how Romney won Ohio (Comrade Winston=Karl Rove Jr)
