The Bureau of Labor Statistics came out with the government's estimates of economic performance for August today. The news is, as it has been for a long time, mediocre.
The problem is that Barack It's-Not-My-Fault Obama isn't willing to accept responsibility for his failed policies that have stalled, even worsened, the recovery he promised to lead.
President Obama and the Democrats still don't get it. They laid down their budget markers this week, seeking to impose nearly $1 trillion in new taxes on an economy that's still struggling to get back on its feet.
If anyone still thinks President Obama is serious about putting our fiscal house in order, Exhibits A and B prove he's been playing political games with this issue from the beginning.
President Obama’s State of the Union address recycled the same old tired rhetoric that he’s been peddling since 2009. Instead of addressing how to reduce the nation’s $16 trillion debt and lower the high unemployment rate, Obama proposed more reckless spending and regulations that will further stifle economic growth in this country.
She talked with Hannity about who's to blame if we go over the cliff.
One bright spot of Barack Obama's re-election was knowing that unemployment rates were about to soar for the precise groups that voted for him -- young people, unskilled workers and single women with degrees in gender studies. But now the Democrats are sullying my silver lining by forcing Republicans to block an utterly pointless tax-raising scheme in order to blame the coming economic Armageddon on them.
There is no point in spinning -- conservatives need to face honestly what this election means.
We heard some real whoppers in this year's campaign but the biggest of them all was President Obama's wildly exaggerated jobs claim.
The definition of spin is to apply a slant or particular emphasis to information, as to persuade or deceive. President Barack Obama really has been pounding the pulpit the past few days, with the election right around the corner, with the help of his speechwriters. He sounds a lot like the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
President Obama’s economic ideas hold that government spending on construction, alternative energy sources welfare will inspire long term growth. But this theory has a big problem: Government is a terrible allocator of resources.
Finally, a pollster asked voters the one question that matters in this presidential election: Does Barack Obama know how to fix the economy?
Somewhere in the last month or so, Mitt Romney's presidential campaign lost its laser-like focus on the bleak, job- starved Obama economy. It allowed Obama's campaign to define him with a blitz of television ads in the summer, as Romney husbanded his resources and declined to aggressively punch back in the key battleground states that will decide the outcome of this election.
How to make a silk purse: First you hand Barack Obama a sow's ear. He'll explain it may look pretty bad, but it's really pretty good. Like the latest jobs report, which only an incumbent president could profess to love. Here's how this president presents it: "Today we learned that after losing around 800,000 jobs a month when I took office, business once again added jobs for the 30th month in a row, a total of 4.6 million jobs."
It could be said a narcissist’s best friend is the reflection he sees of himself in the mirror. No other relationship comes close -- unless the narcissist has the unique opportunity to meet another version of himself, which happened last week, during the recent Group of Eight (G-8) summit at Camp David.
President Obama sent a warmed-over, five-point "to-do list" to Congress this week that he said will create jobs and spur growth.
