ARE YOU BETTER OFF - OBAMA MADE IT WORSE NOT BETTER
The big question that waits to be answered during the three days in Charlotte is how many times by how many speakers will we hear about how Obama inherited a mess and his policy saved us from oblivion.
Not once will they mention that the deficit was $464 billion for fiscal 2009 when Obama took office and within two months he increased that to $1.4 trillion with his failed trillion dollar stimulus that only stimulated Unions, alternative energy companies that ended up going under wasting millions of tax payer dollars and sending billions over seas to stimulate job growth in countries like Finland.
Not once will we hear anything about how unpopular Obamacare is with polls showing that more than 60% of Americans don't want it with thousands of businesses already making cut backs in order to pay for the debacles requirements. Not once will we hear that the poverty rate has risen dramatically since Obama took office and median income in The United States has dropped by nearly $5,000 dollars due to failed Obama economic policy.
Not once will we hear that when Obama took office we still had a AAA credit rating and under his economic policy the rating was lowered for the first time in our history. Not once will we hear that when Obama took office gas was $1.85 a gallon and the national average is now $3.85 with the price per gallon being the highest for ANY Labor Day weekend in our history.
Not once will they mention that on the day the Convention begins the National debt will surpass $16 TRILLION dollars and that nearly $6 TRILLION of that has been added during Obama's term more than every President combined from George Washington to George H.W. Bush. Not once will it be mentioned that unemployment has been above 8% for 42 months, longer than anytime in our history INCLUDING The Great Depression.
So look forward to listening to a laundry list of left wingers pretending that every thing is wonderful with Obama at the helm. Look forward to Democrat heavy hitters like Bill Clinton tell how Obama has saved the day and how four more years will allow him to finish the, "good," job he has begun. The spin will be huge and the illusion will be created that Republicans have been the problem and Romney will destroy us.
Americans haven't bought this spin to date and the glitz of a Convention won't change that. Obama is a failure and as Paul Ryan said makes one remember, "the good old days," of Jimmy Carter who will speak by video at the Convention. Obama's record is one of failure they will spin into a lie of success while blaming any and everyone for their problems and an economy that BELONGS to Barack Obama. Are we better off than we were four years ago??? ABSOLUTELY NOT!
