AP Fluff Piece… Did Obama Fulfill Promises of Change?
The AP questioned today whether Barack Obama has fulfilled his promises to the American public.
Nearly two years ago on a cold February day, President Barack Obama stood for the first time before a joint session of Congress and spoke of a national day of reckoning.
It was time not just to stabilize the shaken economy, he declared, but to reach for lasting prosperity.
His goals were expansive: overhauling health care, cutting the deficit, improving schools, finding a way out of Iraq and a way ahead in Afghanistan. Most of all, creating jobs. Jobs by the millions.
Gee. Let’s look and see…
The 111th Congress Added More Debt Than First 100 Congresses Combined: $10,429 Per Person in U.S.
It was historic.
Barack Obama tripled the national deficit in one year. When Speaker Pelosi took over Congress the national deficit was $162 billion. When she exited in 2011 as Speaker it was at $1.29 Trillion dollars.
Obama topped a trillion dollars his second year, too.
(The Captain’s Comments)
Spending was up 84% under Obama.
That’s not all…
Barack Obama is the worst jobs president since the Great Depression and possibly the worst jobs president in US history.
It’s really no surprise then that only 42% of Americans want to see Obama reelected.
Look for the media to hide all of these facts from you this week as Obama gets in front of the American public and calls for more spending on Tuesday.
