Here are just a few snippets depicting Obama's "dream" for Americans. Please feel free to add to this "virtuous" list of Obama's accomplishments since taking office:

• From 2009-2013, Obama has spent 800 billion on NASA, education, and transportation. During this same period, he has spent 3.7 trillion on means-tested Welfare programs (free programs NOT paid into by the recipient). These same means-tested welfare programs cost more than the Afghanistan and Iraq wars combined.
• During Obama’s time in the White House, deficit spending has averaged 8.4% of the GDP. At no other time in the history of the US has deficit spending exceeded 6.0% of the GDP – not during the Great Depression. Not during the Civil War. Not during WWI. Not during WWII. Not during the height of the Cold War defense build-up. Not even under Bush. NEVER…until Obama.
• In 2010, Obama unveiled an ambitious plan to end homelessness within ten years. Last year, a study by the US Conference of Mayors revealed that homelessness has increased in 21 of the 25 major cities surveyed. Of the other four, the homeless rate stayed the same.
• In 2008, presidential candidate Obama pledged to end child hunger by 2015. Today, child hunger has risen to 17 million according to the Dept. of Agriculture.
• Despite Obama’s campaign promises to strengthen the middle class, during his presidency, the middle class has shrunk while those living in poverty has significantly increased by over 2.1 million people.
• During Obama’s presidency, grocery costs have risen 15.7% while the median income level has fallen.
• Under Obama’s administration, a US Census Bureau report shows that homeownership has declined to an 18 year low of 65%. Foreclosures have increased 31%, a number not seen since 2010.
• To date in 2013, employers have announced 296,633 job cuts. At the current pace, layoffs for 2013 could exceed 2012′s total of 523,362, which represented the harshest level since 1997.

You libs are so funny. You think Obama's failures have to be attributed to anything else besides the very man who pledged to provide hope and change for the minions of gullible.

First it was Bush. But after five years of one continuous blunder after another, you guys quietly accepted the truth. But, typical of a liberal, you sought to lay the blame on someone, or something, else. Enter Fox News.

At some point, you libs will figure out that Fox News has no governing power, no legislative power, no power whatsoever except to provide an opposing view to the rosy picture being painted by the liberal media.

What happens then? What is the next progression in your game of blame? Who or what will be your next target? How long before the Democratic Party is titled the party of blame? The party of excuses? The party that shares no responsibility?

Since you guys are so predictable, I chose not to use Fox News as a source for ANY of the content of my post. No, I just used recent history - the history of President Barack Obama, 44th president to the United States of America....and soon to be its greatest failure.

The numbers don't lie!

Hi Flunkie Yourself. How are ya?
What's that? You want me to repeat what Ive said before 'cause it cheers you up?
Okay, for you again:
Even a dead Ronald Reagan would be a trillion times better then Obummer. At least RR had a set of steel balls, not the beebee size balls Obummer has. The Russians were terrified of Reagan! Obummer is easily slapped around by Putin & every tiny nation on this planet.

So let me say this again to those Obama nuthuggers:
Obama, is the lapdog for Joe "Look At My Porcupine Hairplugs" Biden, Harry "I Aint Had Pu$$y Since Pu$$y Had Me" Reid and Nancy "Stretch" Peloser.
Obama is a colossal failure as president.
That's why Obummer is rapidly gaining on Jimmy Carter for the supreme title of "Worst President In The History Of The USA". Historical experts have frequently named Jimmy "I Got My A$$ Slaughtered By The Great Ronald Reagan" Carter as THE WORST president of all time. Now many are indicating that Obama may easily steal Carter's title. Carter & Obama - 2 of the most spineless leaders this country has ever seen. When Russia, or China, or any of the big countries tell Carter or Obama to "jump", all Carter or Obama say is "how high"? Neither has a set of b@lls!!!! Other nations spit & walk all over the USA when those 2 bozos are in charge. The rest of the world was terrified of Ronald "The Greatest President Of All Time" Reagan... and rightfully so!

Let me know if you want me to repeat it again. Be glad to. Anything to cheer you up.
Please raise taxes again

Booker Phillips is Hillbillyboy. I know and I am not just speculating. Hillbillyboy I do not comment very often and I agree with you sometimes but you exhibit obsessive compulsive characteristics which can taint your perspective. I do not believe that you are capable of stepping back from a situation and eliminate your personal feelings and see a particular subject in a third party perspective. When you are able to this you will have accomplished what few have gained which is wisdom.

But wait theres more. Obamacare will not be his legacy. He knows that it can be repealed. He stated that he would change America forever. Sometime before the 2016 election he will declare amnesty for all illegals. All will be allowed to vote. America will be changed forever. Whites will be the minority and the illegals will rule.

The secret, dirty cost of Obama's green power push

http://news.yahoo.com/secret-dirty-cost-obama...

Well, the AP and all the liberals have finally caught up to where those of us that have followed the energy market for the past 40 years! Oil and coal have been good, will meet America's needs, and are a gift from Heaven. Going to and mixing alcohol with gas was never a good idea and never will be a good idea, on every level from what it does to the mechanics of engines and fuel systems, to what it does to grain markets. It has done nothing but crowd the grain market and drive up food and energy costs at every level.

There's the rich and there's the rest of us. Look at the desparaty of incomes and the gap between rich and poor. It's a fact that the Republican Party looks out for the interests of the rich. They are able to fool working people to vote against their personal interests. It is sad that people here are so gullible.

Obama stated...
I will have the most transparent administration.
I have Shovel ready jobs.
I know nothing about Fast and Furious.
I did not know the NSA was spying.
I did not know about Benghazi.
If four Americans get killed, it is not optimal.
The IRS is not targeting anyone.
ObamaCare will be good for America.
You can keep your family doctor.
Premiums will be lowered by $2500.
You can keep your current healthcare plan
Just shop around, for that healthcare I claimed you wouldn't lose.
No one making less than $250,000 will see their taxes raised one dime.
It was about a movie...
If I had a son....
I will put an end to the type of politics that “breeds division, conflict and cynicism".
You didn't build that....
I will restore trust in Government.
The cops acted stupidly.
I am not after your guns.
The Public Will Have 5 Days To Look At Every Bill That Lands On My Desk.
It's not my red line it is the worlds red line.
Whistle blowers will be protected.
“We got back Every Dime we Used to Rescue the Banks, with interest.
I will close Gitmo.
I am not spying on American citizens.
Barrack Hussain Obamas pledge to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. What a fuking joke.
He also promised to end Oil Speculation and said "electricity would necessarily skyrocket"
" Your insurance is cancelled because it is Substandard" It didn't have maternity (Im sterile) Didn't have riders I would never use, but never mind that it was great for me. What a liar! Call him Dear Leader because he wants to be a socialist dictator, and the media is still not taking him to task on any of these huge lies.

Really? I'm shocked.(If his mouth is moving, he's lying?
lies, lies, lies, lies. Oh yes, I forgot lies. Obama has done nothing but lie to the public.

Bush is a true American, Obama doesn't even seem to know for one book to the other where his loyalty lays.
Our present government is much like other corrupted governments who take all the money and use it on themselves. Wake up America (ex: Mexico, Cuba, Africa, Middle East, etc).

Obama can't allow the AFCA to be delaed in any way because it has all of the power grab in it that he needs to continue with his plan for America. It has very little to do with insurance and everything to do with communist take ove of America, that is why no one paid any attention to the web site it does not matter that the healthcare part is crap the important part is about taking out the states and demoting the people to pawns.

Once again liberalism. What is the ONE thing all forms of governments have in common ? 1 or 2% of the people control the wealth and the power. What is the ONE difference between all others and a democracy driven by capitalism ? In our society once you pay your taxes the rest is yours to spend anyway you wish.

While not inaccurate, once again you fail to see the big picture. As has already been stated, no matter what political/economical society exists, there is always going to be the haves and the have nots, the rich and the poor.

Instead of looking at the disparities between the rich and the poor in a capitalistic society, you need to look at the disparities between the poor in a capitalistic society and the poor in a socialistic/communistic society. The differences are astounding, yet the biggest difference in a capitalistic society is that you have choices. You have opportunities. You have the ability to succeed if the desire exists.

In a socialistic/communistic society, there is no desire because there are no opportunities. Once your lot in life has been set, there is no escaping it.

You don't have educational opportunities because they are reserved for government employees and their families. The best housing is reserved for government employees and their families. The best foods are reserved for government workers and their families. Forget television, Internet, radio, personal computers, etc. If such extravagances exist, you will only have access to those media outlets that your government approves of.

Paranoia is rampant because the government breeds it. Those who speak against the government are sent into exile. Neighbors fear neighbors and family members fear family members. The military not only defends its country, but is used to defend the government from its people.

The more liberties we cede to our government, the closer we become to living in a society like the one I described. We mock our politicians for the stupid, self-serving decisions they make, yet liberals want to hand over the "keys to the country" to them. History has proven to us time and time again what happens when a society's' citizens leave their fate solely to the will of the government.

Someone please explain to me why you liberals think it would be any different here.

. Social democracies seem to do pretty well by their citizens. The people of those nations tend to care for one another more than we do here. Here there is a segment of society that are very vocal and do not care for their fellow citizens too much. It's the I've got mine, you get yours attitude that is bad for America.

You're a little "high maintenance" Needed. You are also a little sensitive and lacking in self confidence. These aren't exactly good liberal traits. If somebody has their hand in my back pocket, I really don't care if they don't feel needed or taken aback because they think I don't care. Go make a life for yourself. Once you start depending on others, you destined to poverty.
