"President Barack Obama's overall approval rating has dropped below 50 percent as a growing number of Americans worry that the U.S. is likely to slip into another Great Depression within the next 12 months, according to a new national poll." News Headlines If there is one thing that should be crystal clear at this point: the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 is a complete failure. Our president spend months fear-mongering the American people that if this legislation wasn’t passed that the sky was literally going to fall. We were told that there would be shovel-ready jobs, and America’s infrastructure would be strengthened, and that unemployment would not rise above 10%. Liberals are always quick to retort, “yes, but if Obama hadn’t passed stimulus we would be much worse off”. Though there is no evidence as to the true effects of stimulus; the most sound argument is that we are currently seeing the results: Fed survey: Economy falters in several US regions - Yahoo! Finance Our president is now out advocating American economic intervention in a country that is a harbinger of things to come for us. The Federal Reserve, forced by the Supreme Court, admitted to allocating hundreds of billions of TAARP and stimulus dollars to European Central Banks. One would think that you would be able to figure out where that money went by reading the respective bills—sadly, you would be naïve to believe so. Those bills granted the Federal Reserve, with no god-D oversight at all, to spend billions however they saw fit. And when asked to provide information to Congress they said screw off. And now instead of secretly transferring money, interest paid by the United States, they are lobbying for open stimulus for countries that failed for doing what we are currently doing. This president has failed this country. His policies are hindering the recovery of our economy. And all those liberals that keep saying he is a lock in 2012, wake up.
