"Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but they are not entitled to their own facts." -- Daniel Patrick Moynihan

Conservatives and liberals may disagree on reasons, motivations, and excuses for Barack Obama's performance, but the facts are still facts. There may be many reasons that a pro football coach goes 1-15, but everyone can agree that his record is still 1-15, right? Well, here are some basic facts about how the country is faring with Barack Obama in the White House. Take a look at the numbers, sans commentary, and make your own judgment about whether Barack Obama deserves another term in office.

1) Real median household income is down $4300 since Obama took office.

2) The percentage of unemployed workers who've been out of a job for more than a year is over 30%.

3) The country has had the longest streak of +8% unemployment since the Depression under Obama: 39 months and counting.

4) In 2011 under Barack Obama, nearly one out of every seven Americans was on food stamps. That's a 70 percent increase from 2007.

5) Fifty percent of new college graduates are underemployed or unemployed.

6) U.S. home ownership is at a decade long low. So is the number of Americans who say their home is worth more than they paid for it. Home prices are the lowest they've been since 2002.

7) Barack Obama ended NASA's manned space program.

8) Going into this election cycle, Barack Obama had raised more money from Wall Street than any President in history. He has also raised more money from Wall Street than all of the GOP presidential contenders combined in this election cycle.

9) Under Barack Obama's leadership, the last time Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats passed a budget was April 9, 2009.

10) Barack Obama's budget was defeated 414-0 in the House and 99-0 in the Senate.

11) When he was running for President in 2008, Barack Obama pledged not to raise taxes on families making less than 250,000 dollars per year. He broke that promise with the tanning salon tax and with Obamacare, which raises almost 500 billion dollars in new taxes, a significant portion of which would be paid by people making less than 250,000 dollars per year.

12) When Barack Obama took office, gas was $1.95 per gallon. Today gas is $3.72 per gallon.

13) In February of this year, the federal government had a 229 billion dollar deficit. That was the largest deficit in the history of the United States.

14) America lost its AAA credit rating (which it had held since 1917) on Obama's watch despite the fact that Timothy Geithner publicly said there was "no risk" of that happening.

15) Barack Obama added more to the debt in just 38 months than George Bush did in two full terms as President.

This guy is right just look at all the energy corporations that have failed that President Obama funded with American tax payers money.
1. Solar Trust of America - Bankrupt
2. Solyndra - Given 500 million and filed bankruptcy losing 1,100 jobs.
3. LSP Energy - Bankrupt
4. Energy Conversion Devices - Bankrupt
5. Abound Solar - Received 400 million and filed bankruptcy.
6. Beacon Power
And the list goes on.
No way

I am not in favor of anyone running for president, but I will be 2 votes against Obama coming from this household.
I just wish everyone else could see him for what he truly is.
He is poisioning the minds of this country. I wont be a part of it.
I dont think Romney is that great, but that is where my vote is going, the lesser of the 2 evils.
Thank you

Yeah he is the lesser of 2 evils but the more I look at Romney the more I think he will do a good job as president. Get Obamacare out of here! Get people working again! And turn this country around!All people who are considering voting for him need to read this to get better educated on his presidency.

Yep, and dont forget those huge loans to GM and now they are needing another one?
I have friends who cant get a permanent full time job to save their life, but they think Obama hung the sun and moon. Too bad they dont see that its their president destroying this country that is putting them where they are today.

Yeah you said it. I'm sick of all this Republicans vs. Democrats crap. People are getting so narrow minded and just mindlessly following their own party. If people will just look at the facts/statistics then they will see Obama's plans just aren't working.
No way

Thank you I totally agree with you.
Sadly I think anyone who likes Obama wont even consider looking in any other direction. Its like they are brain washed zombies.
Obamacare is going to be our doom.
I just wish someone could tell us where the money is going to come from to support this wonderful plan if its not coming from the tax payers.
If there is a well of money hidden somewhere, I sure wish they would open it up and get this country back in proper running order.
I am sure Bush made his mistakes. he is human. we all make mistakes, but Obama. UGH!
Everyone please be sure and read read read and study up on everything before voting. Dont vote for someone because your friend did or because they are the same race as you.
