?WASHINGTON -The Obama economy continues to sink deeper into a recessionary abyss where full-time jobs are in short supply, incomes are flat and life for many millions of Americans is a daily struggle.
How Barack Obama deals with Russia's invasion of Ukraine will likely define his presidency in the history books. But after five years of coddling Moscow and its brutal, authoritarian regime, there's little confidence left in his leadership.
It is common knowledge that Barack Obama's presidency is becoming increasingly unpopular. But did you know that much of the criticism is now starting to come from his own supporters? It's one thing for Obama to see his job approval polls slumping into the low 40s and his job disapproval scores climbing to 54 percent, according to the latest Gallup Poll surveys. It's quite another thing entirely when his longtime allies and most ardent cheerleaders are criticizing the way he's governed, or not governed, for that matter.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal came up with the perfect name for the Obama economy that you'll be hearing a lot in this year's midterm election campaigns.
President Obama was hit by two major reports this week that reinforced what many if not most of us knew about his economic policies: they are killing jobs.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is airing TV ads around the country that offer tax-free status for 10 years to new business start-ups entering his state.
Suddenly, with two roll call votes, the messy, multi-issue battles of the 2014 elections have been refocused on two central issues that will put the GOP back in charge of Congress.The budget and debt limit fights have been set aside for the time being with the swift votes this week for a debt limit extension, and the earlier passage of a budget to keep the government running for the rest of this year.
We are in the sixth year of the reign of Obama where America's prolonged economic illness is met with one excuse after another. Where accountability is evaded at all costs by replacing Harry Truman's "The Buck Stops Here" with "Blame Somebody Else."
The fiery debate over Obamacare this week sparked new fears about the harm it will inflict on our economy, jobs and the rising costs of medical care. They were ignited by the Congressional Budget Office's troubling forecasts of the health insurance law's impact on all of us that raised many more questions than answers.
On Nov. 4, Americans will vote in the midterm elections that for all intents and purposes will be a referendum on Barack Obama's unpopular presidency.
The term cherry-picking is often applied to presidents who use inaccurate, narrowly-drawn, fuzzy statistics and claims to coverup their economic failures.
President Obama was no doubt hoping his address to the nation Tuesday night would pull him out of the deepening political hole he's been sinking into over the past year.
Throughout his economically-troubled presidency, Barack Obama's governing strategy has been one of political distraction: Blaming his failures on others in an attempt to convince enough Americans that he's not at all responsible for an underperforming, jobless economy.
WASHINGTON -- President Obama's bogus promises, predictions and claims are legendary, but perhaps you've forgotten his "sky is falling" forecast about the $85 billion budget sequester.
President Obama's bogus promises, predictions and claims are legendary, but perhaps you've forgotten his "sky is falling" forecast about the $85 billion budget sequester. Last February, as Congress's automatic budget cuts began chipping away at the government's out-of-control spending levels, Obama went hyperbolic.
We're getting closer to the 2015-16 presidential election cycle, and for many White House aspirants, it's already begun in earnest.
This is shaping up as the month that Barack Obama and the Democrats began to slip further into political decline and irrelevance. Obamacare, unpopular as ever, is sinking into financial trouble.
WASHINGTON -- This is shaping up as the month that Barack Obama and the Democrats began to slip further into political decline and irrelevance.
In the sixth year of his presidency, with his job approval polls in a nose dive, Barack Obama has suddenly decided to do something about growing poverty. He chose to do it on the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon Johnson's "war on poverty" address that led to a massive expansion of the welfare state.
President Obama and the Democrats desperately need a political issue to distract struggling, jobless Americans from their economic misery. And they think "income inequality" and raising the minimum wage is the answer to their problems.
