Obama’s recovery is the worst recovery of all the recoveries.

October 14, 2012


It has now been over 3 years since the recession ended.  I think that’s enough time that it’s fair to compare Obama’s recovery to previous recoveries.  If you take the first 3 years of every recovery since WWII, the current one ranks dead last.  And it’s not like it’s building up steam, GDP growth has […]

Obama likes to spend more money than he has money

October 2, 2012


Our government likes to spend all of the money and then a bunch of money that isn’t actually there.  It started getting bad about 30 years ago but has just gone bonkers in the past 4 years.  We recently passed $16 Trillion in debt.  Here’s how it breaks down: Source: $5.7 Trillion for the first […]

I guess somebody forgot to tell all these healthcare companies about Obamacare

September 25, 2012


This is really bizarre.  In 2008, Obama said he would lower healthcare premiums by $2,500 a year for the average family. Then, we passed Obamacare.  He told us it would cost $900 billion over 10 years, but now the CBO tells us it will cost $2.6 trillion over 10 years.  Damn, if it’s going to […]

Visualizing Obama’s Presidency: So much more better off!

September 4, 2012


This is to help you get a visual of Obama’s Presidency for when he says we’re better off than we were 4 years ago.  Feel free to steal any of these images, as I’ve stolen about half of them. Obama decided to spend a whole lot more money than we had money.  Here are his […]

Nobody will be old after 2024, right? *Updated 8/18/12*

August 16, 2012


Today Romney brought out a white board and compared his Medicare plan to Obama’s.  Then, the Obama campaign inexplicably released this: I’ll start with the most glaringly idiotic thing about this: Even in his chart full of overt lies, in his rosiest of possible scenarios, his chosen talking point is that under his plan, Medicare […]

Recovery Summer – Take 3: June jobless claims highest since November. *UPDATED*

June 28, 2012


UPDATE 7/2/12: Manufacturing in contraction for first time in 3 years. Consumer spending flat. (this is actually a good thing long-term, but bad for June job numbers) This, mixed with the elevated jobless claims, seems very possible that we lost jobs in June. ———- As you know, the economy is currently turning the longest corner […]

Comparing Obama to George Washington is just mean

June 19, 2012


I doubt Obama is in the top 40 coolest Presidents ever, but here’s just a small snippet of Obama vs. George Washington when comes to being cool.  Washington was leading an army of farmers against the most powerful military in the world.  They had been encamped outside of Boston for months, suffering from disease and […]
