Obamanomics Has Failed the American People, Time for a New Direction
Over the last month, unemployment has risen to 8.2 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Sadly, the jobs report has become a monthly reminder of how badly President Obama’s fiscal and economic policies have failed the American people. Upwards of 23 million Americans are either unemployed or underemployed. And their prospects for finding full-time employment are persistently bleak after 40 straight months of unemployment at 8 percent or higher. This is completely unacceptable.
By the White House’s own estimates in January 2009, the President’s recovery plan, also known as the stimulus, would bring unemployment down to below 6 percent by May 2012. It’s clear that the stimulus failed to produce the number of jobs that were promised, but all of the hype came with a big price tag for taxpayers who are left holding the bag. Since President Obama took office, he has increased U.S. debt by 5 trillion dollars, and more than 1 trillion of that came from the failed stimulus package. If only the President were as good at creating jobs as he is at raking up more debt.
As you can see from the jobs bill tracker, the vast majority of these bills remain stalled in the Democrat-controlled Senate. All the while, millions of Americans remain jobless, and small businesses are struggling to stay afloat amongst the onslaught of new regulations and taxes.
Here's your stats folks:

Democrat multi-billionaire. And they talk about Donald Trump?
#41177 Jun 1, 2012
color wtf two- you rethuglicans hate all black people and the only thing you can find wrong with Obama is his skin color. You know he is perfect in every way otherwise but won't admit it because fauxnews brainwashed you. You probably have Bill O'Reilly PJ's because he controls your thoughts. All that you repunklicans care about is money. You want all the money you can get your grimy hands on where us democrats only want enough money to have some food and maybe a small efficiency apartment with a hotplate.

President George W. Bush brought a sense of humor to his remarks at the unveiling of his portrait on Thursday, thanking the White House for inviting his "rowdy friends" and joking President Obama can reflect on his picture when making big decisions, "what would George do?"

White supremacists: American Front members charged with anti-government crimes
By Henry Pierson Curtis, Orlando Sentinel
3:50 p.m. EST, June 1, 2012
Prosecutors formally charged accused members of the American Front white supremacy group with conducting anti-government paramilitary training in Osceola County, records show.
Twelve members of the group arrested last month — along with an unnamed co-conspirator — were charged Friday afternoon.
"Today, Central Floridians sent a strong message to our communities – the message that criminal behavior whose thesis is hate and intolerance will not be allowed to flourish in our neighborhoods," Orange-Osceola State Attorney Lawson Lamar wrote in statement.
