Barack Obama, our next President

well let's see if you're in touch with reality or not.
has Obama done anything to improve the economy?
up to June of last year.

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/artic...

it'll all look better in June of this year considering Obama's payroll tax cut that expired. for example....

The budget posted a surprise surplus in January for the first time in five years, as the Treasury likely benefited from a windfall when payroll tax cuts expired.

The budget registered a $3 billion surplus, the first time there had been a surplus in January since 2008, Treasury Department data showed on Tuesday. Economists had been looking for a $2 billion gap. The surplus compared with a $27 billion deficit in January 2012.

It appeared the Treasury got a boost from the expiration of a payroll tax reduction on January 1 following the last-minute "fiscal cliff" deal. In its estimate last week, the Congressional Budget Office said the Treasury got an extra $9 billion in taxes from the expiry.

The January surplus means the government's cumulative deficit for the fiscal year, which starts in October, is $290 billion, 17 percent lower than the comparable first four months of fiscal 2012.

if all you of hard line conservatives would quit listening to the faux economists' on radio and tv you might be able to see the forest through the trees.

So how about this instead:
1. The money supply is adequate the way it is. We need to buy about a trillion and half dollars of our foreign debt and then that'll be the end of it. No more chinee landlords allowed.
2. Families are limited to 1 child per mother. No exceptions. We will use another 3 trillion dollars to cushion the blow as the older generations sicken and die.
3. The energy, insurance, and healthcare industries will be nationalized. No exceptions.
4. Anyone found to be shifting jobs or hiding money overseas will be imprisoned or killed in the case or repeat offenders. All economies will be local.
5. The Stock Market will be dissolved. But brokers will still be able to graze cattle at Trinity Church which will be open to tours.
That's pretty much it... for now. Ridiculous, you say? No more ridiculous than calling for more "growth" when the earth is already swimming in humans and their filthy litany of fears.
This reminds me that I wanted to tell others who are fooled by your cowardice not to feel bad because sometimes you can even fool me too. I just know it isn't me.

US Oil Production: Record Rise in 2012
"According to a new report from the U.S. Department of Energy’s information service, U.S. crude oil production is expected to increase by 760,000 barrels a day in 2012, an all-time record.
“This is the largest rise in annual output since the beginning of U.S. commercial crude oil production in 1859,” EIA Administrator Adam Sieminski said in a statement.
Increased drilling in the shale formations in North Dakota, Montana and Texas are behind this boost in output.
READ MORE: An American Oil Find Larger Than All of OPEC.
Total U.S. crude oil production is on target to reach 6.4 million barrels per day in 2012, the highest for any year since 1997.
In today’s report the EIA has also revised its predictions for crude oil production in 2013, now forecasting that U.S. will produce more than 7 million barrels per day for the first time since 1992.
The news comes just a week after the EIA released a report saying that the U.S. will become increasingly energy independent in the next three decades as it boosts its production of oil, natural gas and renewable power such as solar and wind.
Oil industry analysts expect that an increase in U.S. crude oil production should help push gas prices lower."
Your silly propaganda is all bullshit.
Aren't you Christians supposed to tell the truth??
So why do you lie about everything??

Does your bias have no limits? The History Channel is now part of your imagined rightwing Fox-type conspiracy?
The footage and never before seen clips of everything that went on behind the scenes was actually pretty amazing.
Did you know there was almost a fist fight between the Secret Service and the Texas police trying to get Kennedy's casket out of the hospital and onto Air Force One because of a law in Texas that said autoposies had to be performed in that state for forensic reasons?
Jacqueline, unfortunately, had to witness the whole thing. The Secret Service finally bulldozed through the police with the casket and with Jacqueline running beside it.
Guns were even drawn at one point. I had no idea any of that happened. Did you?
But the History Channel usually does a good job reporting actual events as they happened.
Steven Gallin wrote the piece based on an oral history that had been provided by AF Brig Gen NcHugh, Kennedy's aide, which was sealed for decades. Reviews are mixed and Gallin is widely known for elaborate half truths.

McHugh lied about several important facts__it was a very unusual and stressful time for him and all others involved__plenty of folks in CMA mode.

The 24 hrs piece is one in a History Channel series.

"Serious" Conservative Media And The Recidivist Temptation

President Obama's reelection has prompted more than a few conservative pundits and journalists to look inward and contemplate the weaknesses of the right-wing media model that obsesses over partisan minutia, eagerly chases phantom scandals, nosedives down ideological rabbit holes, and excludes dissenting voices. It's an interesting discussion, but it's hampered by the fact that the same people calling for change are themselves backsliding into the behaviors they want to correct.

Commentary editor and columnist John Podhoretz offers a pure distillation of this recidivist phenomenon. "Time To Get Serious," writes Podhoretz for the April issue of Commentary, arguing that after 6 years of treating Obama as alternately a "lightweight" political incompetent and a power-mad would-be dictator, and with nothing but two electoral drubbings to show for it, conservatives have to "come to grips" with Obama's political skill:

It's not just the comforting delusion that he's a golf-mad dilettante, but also the reverse-negative image of that delusion--that Obama is a not-so-secret Marxist Kenyan with dictatorial ambitions and a nearly limitless appetite for power. That caricature makes it far too easy for Obama to laugh off the legitimate criticisms of the kind of political leader he really is: a conventional post-1960s left-liberal with limited interest in the private sector and the gut sense that government must and should do more, whatever "more" might mean at any given moment.

Podhoretz's very next paragraph, however, shows that he's not quite ready to take his own advice, as he casts the Obama presidency as a vehicle for "disaster" at home and "nihilistic chaos" globally -- precisely the sort of extremist caricature he says isn't helpful for conservatives:

The notion that Obama is a dangerous extremist helps him, because it makes him seem reasonable and his critics foolish. It also helps those who peddle it, because it makes them notorious and helps them sell their wares. But it has done perhaps irreparable harm to the central conservative cause of the present moment -- making the case that Obama's social-democratic statism is setting the United States on a course for disaster and that his anti-exceptionalist foreign policy is setting the world on a course for nihilistic chaos. Those are serious arguments, befitting a serious antagonist. They may not sell gold coins as quickly and as well as excessive alarmism, but they have the inestimable advantage of being true.

Daniel Larison of the American Conservative observes:

Of course, warning about global "nihilistic chaos" being unleashed by an "anti-exceptionalist foreign policy" is just another example of excessive alarmism that produces the same effects as the attacks Podhoretz wants conservatives to reject. No one outside the bubble of movement conservatives and hard-liners believes that Obama's foreign policy is "anti-exceptionalist " in any sense, much less in the tendentious way that it is being applied here.

And then there's Erick Erickson, who raised some eyebrows in late February when he posted to RedState.com a reformist manifesto laying out his vision for conservative journalism going forward. "I think conservative media is failing to advance ideas and stories," Erickson wrote. "Many conservatives are, instead of working doubly hard to overcome that bias [of the liberal media], just yelling louder about the same things. The echo in the chamber has gotten so loud it is not well understood outside the echo chamber in the mainstream press and in the public. It translates only as anger and noise, neither of which are conducive to the art of persuasion."

Erickson declined to name names, but it's pretty clear what he was talking about: the Breitbart-Daily Caller-Matt Drudge strain of conservative journalism that spent 2012 futilely obsessed with overhyped non-scandals and failed gotchas. His solution was to hire RedState writers who would stick to the facts and stay focused on larger issues.

However, click over to RedState and you'll see that the site recently added Breitbart exile and one-time CNN contributor Dana Loesch to their stable of "front page writers." Loesch is about as extreme and demagogic as they come, and she thrives on a steady diet of overblown nonsense. One of her latest RedState contributions chronicles a Twitter fight she got into with actor Jim Carrey over guns.

As for Erickson, his professed disdain for "trying so hard to highlight controversies, no matter how trivial" is tough to take seriously given that he was an enthusiastic promoter of the New Black Panther "controversy" -- the gold standard for trumped-up Obama scandals -- and even went so far as to encourage Republicans in 2010 to make New Black Panther member King Samir Shabazz the "21st century Willie Horton." If more recent behavior is any guide, he doesn't seem too committed to breaking the cycle of "anger and noise" he sees plaguing conservatism. The Supreme Court oral arguments on marriage equality prompted Erickson to tweet about how gay people are going to hell.

When the people calling for change are the ones falling off the wagon, one starts to see how difficult a time conservatives will have in saving the movement from themselves.

Tax Returns: A Comprehensive Assessment of the Bush Administration's Record on Cutting Taxes
The design of these tax cuts was ill-conceived, resulting in significantly less economic stimulus than could have been accomplished for the same budgetary cost. In part because the tax cuts were not as effective as alternative measures would have been, job creation during this recovery has been notably worse than in any other recovery since the end of World War II.
http://www.cbpp.org/cms/index.cfm...
Um You do realize that unemployment hovered around 4.5% during most of Bush's time after 9/11. Under Bill Clinton it was said 5% was full employment. Riddle me this Batman! How do you create jobs when every one is working? With the tax cuts what you had was people keeping more of THEIR money. Spending went up. People were living better. Enjoying themselves. Wages were going up because demand for labor was fierce. I remember people offering 5-65 dollar an hour raises if I would come work for them. You are full of Ca-Ca!!!

Your Copy-n-Paste is getting tiresome. Now you're pasting stuff from a year ago trying to make a case for the Jerk-In-Chief whose Obamacare is an approaching tsunami and then you try to make the payroll tax cut expiry look good for the Boy Messiah!!!

There are far too many holes in your denial techniques to allow for rational discussions here.

Let the NY Times do the propaganda stuff, OK? Your job is just to Copy-n-Paste. Interpretation should be left to the propaganda professionals.

Unfit For Work: The startling rise of disability in America: http://apps.npr.org/unfit-for-work/
Yep, there were millions of people that qualified for disability that still worked because they had jobs they could do with these disabilities.

May of those jobs were lost in the Great Bush Recession. Finding new jobs that they could work became difficult to impossible. Now they must turn to disability.

Another statistic the dumbass right doesn't realize points back to their own party's recession.
