Obama Has Saved America!|
August 10, 2009
Thank God! Oops, I mean, thank Obama. The economic crisis is almost over, the 'war on terror'
is a thing of the past and, by his own words, Obama and his administration have saved America from catastrophe
President Obama used the occasion of a 1/10 of 1% drop in the nation's unemployment
rate to claim both success and validation for his economic policies. He has valiantly
brought America back from the brink of the economic chaos that was caused by his
predecessor. But as is often the case with Obama, the devil is in the details.
In July, 247,000 jobs were lost. Inquiring minds question how the unemployment rate
could experience even a slight drop when the stats show Americans are still losing
their jobs. John Lott gives us the answer
"The reason is simple -- the number of people who stopped looking for work rose
dramatically. 637,000 additional people no longer consider themselves looking
for work. This is by far the largest drop in the number of people who consider themselves
in the labor force during the last year - almost twice the 358,000 increase in the
people who left the labor force during June."
Using Lott's calculations, our actual unemployment rate stands at 16.3%, not the
Obama would have us believe this is good news. Our president would also have us
believe his claim that the $1.2 trillion health care reform proposal is just the
ticket to jump start the economy. (Hey, didn''t he just say he already
jump started the economy?) I digress...
Now I'm not an expert, but I question how adding unsustainable debt to a record deficit
to supposedly fix a non-problem is going
to deliver us from financial Armageddon. But Obama says he can add 12 million illegal aliens
and app. 25 million uninsured
Americans to government health care rolls and this will somehow result in cost savings.
Oh, and despite his
own words to the contrary in 2007
, Obama now assures us that the public
option proposal most assuredly won't put private insurers out of business. Whew.
Since we all know Obama doesn't lie, Americans will, once again, just have to accept
the word of our Organizer in Chief. Hey, he's entitled to some slack. After all,
he just ended the war on terror
That's right. A mere six months after taking office, Obama has officially ended
the war on terror. From now on, Obama has decreed that we're only at war with Al
Qaeda. All our brave warriors in Afghanistan can relax now that global jihad has
How did Obama accomplish this amazing feat? He did it in the Democrat's time honored
way. He merely redefined the terms.
Nancy Morgan is a columnist and news editor for
'Jihad', 'war on terror' and 'global war' are no longer acceptable terms
. They have
been banished from the polite society the liberals, oops progressives have claimed
as their own exclusive province. Case closed.
When I look back at all of Obama's accomplishments of the last six months
, I feel
pretty stupid for not voting for him. Had I know he had the unique ability to actually
redefine reality to his own specifications, I wouldn't have spent so much time dwelling
on his criminal cohorts, his socialist buddies and his terrorist 'acquaintances'. I would have had blind faith
in him and not pointed out his utter lack of any real accomplishments, experience
or character. Boy, do I feel silly.
I've decided that I'm finally going to jump on the Obama bandwagon - right after I check out
the pig that just flew right by my window.
