I just heard this fact....and had to check to see if it is true.

It puts Obama in a class by himself.
The dumb class.


1. Obama is the first President never to have had a year of 3% or better economic growth:

"...annual growth during Obama’s “recovery” has never topped 3%. By comparison, it never fell below 3% during the Reagan recovery. And in the nine years following the 1990-91 recession, GDP grew faster than 3% in all but two. Heck, even Jimmy Carter had some strong growth years." President Obama’s Growth Gap Hits $1.31 Trillion

a. "The years since 2007 have been a macroeconomic disaster for the United States of a magnitude unprecedented since the Great Depression." Obama: Always Wrong, Never In Doubt

b. "....first president since Hoover to never have a single year above 3% GDP growth." Obama economy is 'amazing,' says hedge fund billionaire



What possible laurels can this perennial failure have left America as his legacy.



2. And....it AGAIN paints this fraud as a congenital liar:

"In a 2014 study for the National Bureau of Economic Research, Stanford University’s Robert Hall wrote about America’s sub-par economic performance. His opening line was basically a preemptive refutation of Obama’s claim – made during the State-of-the-Union Address – that the economy is strong.

The years since 2007 have been a macroeconomic disaster for the United States of a magnitude unprecedented since the Great Depression."
Obama: Always Wrong, Never In Doubt



What the heck is wrong with you Obama supporters?????

The only comparison in history is with Hiroo Onoda.....

"Hirō Onoda(小野田 寛郎 Onoda Hirō?, March 19, 1922 – January 16, 2014) was anImperial Japanese Armyintelligence officer who fought in World War II and a Japanese holdout who did not surrender in 1945. After Onoda spent nearly 30 years holding out in the Philippines,..."

Come to the light, Obama supporters.....

...it's time.

Well we had to save the poor rich folks first...


Even you must admit that this feeble attempt at humor is just.....stupid.


This failure in the White House has had seven years....and never had a year of 3% growth......

....when would he admit that his compass is off kilter????

And when will you admit the truth.


Did you know this?
Average unemployment rate under Bush: 5.31

Average unemployment rate under Obama: 8.46 U.S. Unemployment Rates by President, 1948-2014 (thru 2014)

"Well we could certainly use another war to help us out..."



Are you sure you want to open that door????

Obama's record in foreign policy is even worse than same on domestic policy.

He misjudged ISIS.....claimed they were 'the JV'.....pulled any opposition off the battlefield so that ISIS could grow and succeed.....

And now has to re-install the forces he mistakenly pulled out.


As a previous poster noted....the only people more of a failure than Obama are his voters.


I demand a full-out penitential prostration.
And beg forgiveness.
Now.


And.....Obama voters: never vote again until you receive my absolution and instructions.

What drives the out-of-control ODS we see in PC? A combination of stupidity, cult brainwashing, hatred of democracy, and devout asskissing love of Nazis, Communists, jihadists, or any authoritarians in general.

Fortunately, being that ODSers lack gonads, they have difficulty reproducing. So we keep squishing the foul oozy things, and they're unable to replenish their numbers.

Look at the table and count how many years the Reagan annual GDP growth was under 3%

US Real GDP Growth Rate by Year

I count 3. 2 if you wish to duck out of 1981.

So who's lying?

Speaking to the unemployment rate comment, lets look at a TRUE analysis of the data and realize the the economic effects are both cyclical and recovery often take years to acclimate. You can see on the attached chart, pretty clearly that Obama inherited a recession which lead to the largest unemployment crisis that we've seen since the mid 80's. The trend during his presidency was in a positive direction. It is not a fair comparison to look at an average unemployment rate during the term of a presidency to define the effect that a president had on Employment... Plus there are many factors that fall outside the bounds of control that a President or even a government has on the state of the economy and employment.

This isn't a pro or anti Obama statement. If you are going to critique then at least present a fair look at the statistics when making your argument.

Well....in that case....


1. "...take-home pay for many American workers has effectively fallen since the economic recovery began in 2009, according to a new study by an advocacy group that is to be released on Thursday.
The declines were greatest for the lowest-paid workers in sectors where hiring has been strong — home health care, food preparation and retailing — even though wages were already below average to begin with in those service industries.
“Stagnant wages are a problem for everyone at this point, but the imbalance in the economy has become more pronounced since the recession,”..."http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/03/b...rkers-see-biggest-drop-in-paychecks.html?_r=0


2."....US hourly wages have not only not increased for the past 7 years,but for thevast majority of the labor force continue to decline,.... just the month of August will be enough to provide the Trump - and every other - campaign with enough soundbites and pivot points to last it for weeks on end: namely,that in August a whopping 698,000 native-born Americans lost their job.This drop was offset by 204,000 foreign-born Americans, who got a job in the month of August. ....since December 2007, according to the Household Survey,only 790,000 native born Americanjobs have been added.Contrast that withthe 2.1 million foreign-born Americanswho have found a job over the same time period..."698K Native-Born Americans Lost Their Job In August: Why This Suddenly Is The Most Important Jobs Chart | Zero Hedge

4. "Obamacare health insurance co-ops surged past the $1 billion mark in losses this week, making history of sorts.The insolvencies, totaling $1.36 billion, mean that the co-ops have burned through more than half of theoriginal $2 billion appropriatedin 2010 for the program under the Affordable Care Act. The funds were loaned to the start-up co-ops in 2012 and were to be repaid in 15 years, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which manages Obamacare.
...13 of the 23 federally-financed Obamacare co-ops have officially failed in only two years. Most are in the process of default as insurance regulators attempt to pay customer’s medical bills, cover medical providers and pay other creditors.
Obamacare Co-Op Mess Causes $1.3 Billion In Losses


5."Obama Administration Announces 144 Big Regulations Right Before Thanksgiving
This is a new record, beating the previous high of 136 set by President Obama this spring."
Obama Administration Announces 144 Big Regulations Right Before Thanksgiving


6. "...ObamaCare experiment costing taxpayers $2.4 billionis failing. The co-ops were founded on the idealistic belief that community members could band together to create health insurance companies that would be member-driven, service-oriented, and would not have to answer to shareholders or turn a profit."
400,000 Citizens To Lose Health Insurance (Again) Because Of Obamacare Co-Op Failures



7. "The U.S. expanded at a 2.2% rate through the first nine months of the year, and the economy is projected to grow at a similar pace in the fourth quarter that ends on Dec. 31. If so, the economy will have failed to reach 3% growth for the 10th straight year, marking the slowest stretch since the end of World War II.
Historically the economy has expanded at a 3.3% rate."U.S. economy set to grow less than 3% for the 10th straight year


8. "Congress has now cleared the way for federal debt to pass$20 trillionby the end of the president’s second term. President Obama said the new budget deal will be paid for in a “balanced” and “responsible” way, but on the day the deal was signed, the federal debt jumped $339 billion—a third of a trillion dollars in one day."Societywatch


9.The GDPNow model forecast for real GDP growth (seasonally adjusted annual rate) in the fourth quarter of 2015 is 0.8 percent on January 8, down from 1.0 percent on January 6. The forecast for the contribution of inventory investment to fourth-quarter real GDP growth declined 0.2 percentage points to -0.8 percentage points after this morning's wholesale trade report from the U.S. Census Bureau.GDPNow


10. "Retail Sales in U.S. Decrease to End Weakest Year Since 2009Sales at U.S. retailers declined in December to wrap the weakest year since 2009, raising concern about the momentum in consumer spending heading into 2016. The 0.1 percent drop matched the median forecast of 84 economists surveyed by Bloomberg and followed a 0.4 percent gain in November, Commerce Department figures showed Friday in Washington. For all of 2015, purchases climbed 2.1 percent, the smallest advance of the current economic expansion."Retail Sales in U.S. Decrease to End Weakest Year Since 2009

11. " The federal government heavily subsidizes higher education through a complex system of grants and loans. While the programs are great for colleges — they haveenabledan astronomical increase in tuition — they contain few measures holding the institutions accountable to their students. As a result, only59 percentof students graduate from four-year colleges and universities within six years. Those lucky enough to graduate face another hurdle:44 percentof recent college graduates occupy jobs which do not require a college degree. Taken together, these numbers suggest that only one-third of college enrollees emerge from the system with both a degree and a relevant job." What "Free" College Can't Fix | Preston Cooper

12. Obama is the first President never to have had a year of 3% or better economic growth: "...annual growth during Obama’s “recovery” has never topped 3%.
