Obama Misleads On Job Numbers

Obama numbers

Obama by the numbers

Surprise!! The Democrats are lying.

In the last month and particularly last night, the left has been throwing out the number 4.5 MILLION. The Obama regime and its surrogates keep telling people that 4.5 million jobs have been created by Barack Hussein Obama (mmm, mmm, mmm). This is a lie. When Obama took office there were 111 million private sector jobs in this country and in July 2012 (the last month of available numbers) the number was 111.3 million. This means that the net gain over the entire time Obama has been in office is 300,000.

The job numbers are a complicated mix of different sectors and different reports. The private sector had a net gain of 300,000 and the public sector has been losing jobs (1 million lost despite bailouts from the Obama clan). As CNN concludes:

The figure of 4.5 million jobs is accurate if you look at the most favorable period and category for the administration. But overall, there are still fewer people working now than when Obama took office at the height of the recession.

Additionally, the jobs that are trickling in are not like those we lost. Low wage jobs like food service and retail sales are being added nearly three times as fast as higher-paid occupations. [From linked article]

The truth is that the so called recovery has been the slowest on record and that people are still hurting. There are fewer people working, the work pool is shrinking, millions more are on food stamps and people continue to lose their homes while the cost of everything continues to rise.

Obama has been an abysmal failure. He told us that he could fix it in one term or he would be a one term president.

Now he wants you to vote for him again because he did not complete the job. Poor Barry needs more time.

What makes anyone think he will be able to fix it in two terms when he failed to fix it in one despite his assurances that he could?

Ask yourself; are you better off now than you were four years ago? The only people who are better off are Obama and his friends. The Obamas travel around on vacation and he plays endless rounds of golf at our expense while Obama’s friends continue to get huge sums of taxpayer money.

They are better off at our expense.

We, on the other hand, are doing much worse and will continue to sink until we fire Obama and his band of liars and thieves.

Cave canem!
Never surrender, never submit.

    I know I am not better off now- hell, I used to build homes, and now I do not.
    I work for a retail outlet for about a third of what I used to get, so where is my recovery? I’d ask fo’ dat Obama money, but my skin’s the wrong color-
