    Why Obama is being ignored - His record

    Nothing seems to upset Barack Obama like being ignored. He is the President, after all, and "The One." Yet, as the negotiations on a debt ceiling deal bob-and-weave along in Washington, he grows visibly angrier that he's not getting his own way. This week he reportedly "stormed out" of discussions after Majority Leader Eric Cantor suggested the two sides were still pretty far apart on a solution.

    If Obama wants some insight as to why the Republicans don't seem willing to just accept his ideas, he needs to look no further than his own record. As the following two charts demonstrate, the policies implemented by the Democrats on his watch the last couple of years are an abysmal failure, having come up far short of even his own promises.

    The first chart is based upon the White House's own report of January 9, 2009, The Job Impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan. At the time, President-elect Obama was trying to sell Congress on his Stimulus plan. His economists projected unemployment rates if no action was taken and a much more favorable estimate if the Stimulus were passed and implemented. As we all know, the Democrat majority obliged him.



    Added to the White House's projections is a green line showing what actually happened post-Stimulus. As you can see, the unemployment rate immediately exceeded Obama's worst case projections. The current unemployment rate is about 2 percentage points higher than he predicted would be the case with his Stimulus. That translates to more than 2.7 million additional people out of work than he promised under his plan.

    In fact, unemployment after his $800 billion Stimulus is higher than he said it would be had the government done nothing at all, which leads to the conclusion that his Stimulus actually made the jobs market worse. The latest report from his Council of Economic Advisors confirms that conclusion by admitting there are now 300,000 fewer jobs "saved-or-created" by the Stimulus than they claimed just six months earlier.

    Obama has a record allright; a record of small-time political shenanigans in the shit-pit called Chicago, and then getting picked by the NWO dudes who are now using him as their figurehead to destroy this country. Lash hopes all of you NWO sycophants and apologists live to reap the fruit of your efforts.

    You may be right, Bart, I have never thought about saddling America with such a high debt that we will never recover, nor have I ever contemplated socializing America, or installing incompetent cronies in the highest seats of government, but then, that's just me.

    Bob Beauprez - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Military service





    Bob Beauprez, third from left, following a flight in an F-16 over Colorado.
    On February 2, 2006, veterans called on Beauprez to apologize for appearing at a photo-op in a military-issued uniform, even though he had never served in the military. He had requested and received three draft deferments and then a medical release during the Vietnam War. [1] In May 2006, ProgressNow, a liberal advocacy group, produced an Internet-based ad that again focused on Beauprez's draft status during Vietnam. The Beauprez campaign dismissed the ad as done by a "well-financed attack machine."




    Just some scumbag pretending to be a vet so he can fool his voters

    He is not being ignored. Republicans are doing everything they can to ensure he will not have a second term

    Thankfully for America, it is not working

    Like obamaturd, lying about your military record or any other record in your past should be grounds for dismissal. But dimwits think they are above the rules, idiots!!!
