Hillary Clinton served up a tired old economic plan like last week’s old lunch. It contained everything Obama tried eight years ago that stifled the economic recovery that began after the financial crisis was ended by George W. Bush. These policies resulted in a pathetic average growth rate of around 1 1/2 percent.
During the Obama years the number of Americans below the poverty line increased 3.5 percent. The number of Americans on Food Stamps increased 39.5 percent and median household income decreased 2.3 percent and a real unemployment rate of 10.1 percent. Meanwhile, the national debt has doubled from roughly $10 to $20 trillion leaving us the most indebted country in the world.
The first thing Hillary retrieved from her dumpster dive was a massive new government jobs program: “We will put Americans to work building and modernizing our roads, our bridges, our tunnels, our railways, our ports, our airports.” Wasn’t that what Obama promised with the $750 billion he fleeced out of we the taxpayers for “shovel-ready jobs”?

There so much hope that we would finally heal what was left of the racial divide that exists in this country when Barack Obama was elected president of the United States. That’s why many threw caution to the wind and voted for a poorly qualified man with Marxist tendencies to lead us. That’s why so many were willing to stick with him for another four years. Surely, he would finally come through . . . but he hasn’t.
His speech yesterday in Dallas was, without a doubt, one of his best. However, after extolling the virtues of the Dallas police and the fallen, he simply couldn’t resist the temptation to legitimize those who feel the police are out to get them as he has done many times before. Continue reading “What Obama Should Say (But He Won’t)”
On Saturday, just after the nation learned that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia had died, Senator Mitch McConnell opened his mouth and created a vacuum.
In the days that followed, volumes of words have been spoken and written about the majority leader’s short statement regarding the appropriate time to choose an individual to fill Scalia’s seat on the high court. Some praised his resolve. Others denounced him for trying to control the process set forth in the Constitution.
It has been a big waste of airtime and newsprint. In short, the majority leader said nothing of substance. He is full of so much hot air, we could package him and replace the National Helium Reserve. Then he might serve a useful purpose. Continue reading “McConnell’s Groundhog Day”
Marco Rubio was exactly right when he said Barack Obama knows “exactly what he’s doing.” He may have repeated himself three times too many in the New Hampshire debate, but the point Rubio made to counter his GOP opponents’ attack on his inexperience was spot on.
This should in no way be taken as an endorsement for the junior senator from Florida. I believe that there is a good chance Rubio will be the eventual nominee. However, he lost me when he dismissed the anchor baby problem by sweeping it under the ambiguous 14th Amendment.
Nevertheless, Rubio is right about Barack Obama. He is without a doubt the most transformational president since Ronald Reagan. Continue reading “Marco Rubio was Right”
In his State of the Union address Tuesday, President Obama, once again, told us that “the state of the union is strong.” Our citizens know differently. Here’s what Obama didn’t tell you:
- The unemployment rate may be down, but the labor participation rate is a paltry 62.6 percent. It is still stuck at a 38 year low.
- The average hourly pay also is stuck, sliding one cent last month to $25.24. That left the growth of average pay at 2.5 percent for the year, well below the 3.5 percent economists consider healthy.
- The same goes for health care. The percentage of adults without coverage remains at around 12%. Meanwhile, Obamacare premiums skyrocketed an average of 7.5%.
- The Dow Jones industrial average, faded by 2.2 percent, its first down year since 2008.
Armed with this knowledge, I was much more interested in Monday night’s report on the “State of the Family” delivered by Tony Perkins at the Family Research Council Continue reading “The State of the Family”
Cold, heartless, cruel, callous, merciless, hard-hearted! Those are just a few of the words that have been used to describe Republicans and others who want to put the brakes on President Obama’s plan to resettle thousands of Syrians fleeing their war-torn country here in the United States.
Resettling those people constitutes a grave threat to our country given the fact that it is impossible to adequately vet them. Nevertheless, our hearts go out to these people and quite naturally we want to help.
So here is the question for bleeding-heart liberals who want to throw caution to the wind and bring plane loads of these people here to the United States: Would you like to help 10,000, which is Obama’s plan for the current year, or 610,000 of them? Continue reading “The Syrian Refugee Grinch in the White House”
This week, Congress will present President Obama with a bill to fund the government through the remaining fiscal year and Obama will veto it. Why? Because the bill defunds the nation’s biggest domestic terrorist, Planned Parenthood, which mercilessly kills over 300,000 babies a year and sells their body parts.
Yes, Obama would rather shut down the government than cut off federal funds to one of the most immoral organizations on the planet.
Right on cue, USA Today published a poll conducted with Suffolk University to show that most Americans are opposed, 58% to 33%, to shutting off Planned Parenthood’s federal money spigot. However, there are no links to give us a cue as to how this question was framed. Surprise, Surprise!
