    Articles: The Obama Way: Selling Failure as Success

    Bob Dylan once wrote, "There's no success like failure [we learn from our mistakes], and failure is no success at all."

    Barak Obama, in 2008, won the presidency on the platform that (among other things) he understood the country's economic problems and, more importantly, knew how to solve them. Three-plus years later, the administration is now telling us that "The economy turns out to have been far worse ... than we knew at the time," "we are moving in the right direction," and that he now "needs more time to fix the economy."

    "The economy turns out to have been far worse ... than we knew at the time" simply tells us that Mr. Obama never understood the problems to begin with.

    "Moving in the right direction"? :eusa_shifty: Despite more than three years and some $2 trillion spent on bailouts, handouts, and so-called stimulus, there are approximately three million fewer people employed today than were employed in 2008. Approximately three quarters of a million fewer women are employed today than were employed in 2008. Several million others have given up looking for employment entirely, gone into retirement, taken permanent disability, or taken jobs in the underground economy. Few if any of these people will ever again contribute to our tax base.

    Despite the failure of this administration's policies, Mr. Obama now claims to "need more time." Having no plan in hand while simultaneously claiming that we are moving in the right direction, Mr. Obama is clearly telling us that if he is re-elected, we can expect more deficit spending to pay for the same failed policies over the next four years.

    If these three statements tell us anything, they tell us that Mr. Obama campaigned in 2008 with no understanding of the problem, has chosen the old liberal solution of throwing money at the problem while hoping things improve, and worse yet, cannot come up with a new plan because to do so would not only admit failure, but concede that he never had a clue to begin with.

    Only in the liberal Democratic world is failure proof of success. We see it not only in the White House, but in Congress, at our universities, and in increases in compensation for fewer hours and less productivity demanded by our municipal unions.

    Dylan told us that "There is no success like failure," but in fact, Mr. Obama has learned nothing from his failures during more than three years of on-the-job training. And failure is no success at all.

    Send the loser packing in November....:clap2:

    Finding Bin Laden was the result of 10 years of intelligence work. Surely you don't give all the credit to Obama, do you?

    You can't prove he did. In fact, there's no evidence to support that theory.

    I think the ball was put in motion to stop a lot of bad shit from happening
    just before Obama was sworn in...
    But you won't get that part of the story from the
    Libs...Of course we are all still required to recite our Hail Obama chants
    every morning. :eusa_whistle:

    And yet, we are still facing economic problems such as anemic job growth.
