Obama Continues to Lie About Jobs; Says "I Expect to Be Held Accountable" (Video)
Worst. President. Ever.
Barack Obama is the worst president in history on job creation–
According to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. shed 2.3 million jobs since February 2009, Obama’s first full month in office. Since Obama’s election in 2008, the US economy has shed 4.4 million jobs. That’s worse than Herbert Hoover.
The June numbers were even worse for the president. The economy lost 125,000 jobs due to his disastrous policies. Despite this, President Obama has repeatedly lied to the press saying, “We’ve now gained jobs in the private sector for five consecutive months.” Of course, it’s too much to ask the corrupt media to correct him on this obvious lie. After all, they didn’t earn the reputation of being the state-run media for nothing.
About the record unemployment, President Obama told NBC that,
“I expect to be held accountable.”
Leftist NBC announcer Chuck Todd interviewed Obama in Michigan this week.
AOL News reported:
In an interview that aired today on NBC’s “Today” show, the president said he is prepared “to be held accountable for the policies that I’ve put in place,” including massive overhauls of the health care and financial systems. Citing those changes, along with investments in education, clean energy and dealing with deficits and entitlements, Obama said: “Those structural challenges have to be fixed. And it’s hard because you don’t see immediate gratification.
“But what I’d say to the person who’s out of a job right now is we are gonna be doing everything we can to create the environment where the private sector can come in and start creating jobs. But I’m not any more satisfied than they are. And until they can find a job, I expect to be held accountable.”
Obama, whose job approval ratings are mediocre, still remains more popular than Congress, whose members will face voters this fall. While history shows and current polling predicts that Democrats will lose seats in November, the president echoed his party’s pitch to voters to stick with the current majority.
“We had a disaster on our hands,” he said of the economic landscape when he took office. “We’ve been able to stabilize the economy and prevent the freefall. Instead of 750,000 jobs a month being lost, we’ve now gained jobs in the private sector for five consecutive months. But we’ve still got a long way to go.”

Total disconnect from reality/
Nearly a million homes are expected to be foreclosed upon this year.
Foreclosure activity in the U.S. real estate market increased by 7 percent in the first quarter of 2010, according to RealtyTrac’s U.S. Foreclosure Market Report. Default notices, scheduled auctions and bank repossessions were reported on 932,234 properties in the first quarter. The pace of foreclosure activity seems to have increased through the three-month period ending March 31.
That doesn’t sound like an economy that is roaring back to me.
A million foreclosures mean that there is a million families who might have a different take on Obama’s recovery.
