I tried. I really did. But I could only make it through the first ten minutes of Barack Obama’s speech on global warming, especially given the fact that the EPA is making rules on a subject they obviously know nothing about.
“The economy is on the road to a recovery from a great recession”
I suppose that is true, as long as you recognize the fact that Black unemployment has gone up 40% and that nearly half of the unemployed are no longer looking for work. Remove these millions from the equation and maybe we are “on the road to a recovery,” especially as the Administration has assured us that today’s unemployment rates should be looked upon as the “new normal!”
More business have closed than have opened and most of the new jobs are part-time, going to illegals. We now have more illegals in this country than unemployed Americans thanks to OBAMA’S Welcoming America fiasco. And the economy has done so well that the number of people in poverty has increased from 13.2 to 14.5%. The number of people on food stamps has risen 39% between 2009 and 2014. Our debt is now higher than ever before with an increase of 15% to $59 trillion just since 2009. Great numbers, right Democrats?
The economy is so good that 53% of all college graduates under 25 are unemployed. But the American people need not worry, for government has grown very nicely, with countless employees “earning” well over $100,000 per year. If federal employees can be counted in his “the road to recovery” claim, Barack will be right on the money!
“We have ended two wars”
Yes we have. We have ended two wars by following a President that knows nothing but cut and run. Iraq, which was well on the road to recovery after the Bush “surge” and in the process of forming an inclusive democracy has now fallen under the tyrannical rule of Iran, fragmenting to such an extent that it may never recover. The military, our once proud military is low on morale, funding and resources. The Navy even has to ask foreign governments to assist in getting our U.S. Marines to where they need to go.
The military did not want to leave Iraq or Afghanistan, but our cut and run President left them no choice. Trying to pin the blame on Iraq for not giving us a status of forces agreement is just garbage. To have an agreement of that type you have to talk with them and Obama all but ignored Iraq. He just wanted out for the purpose of enhancing his legacy with the anti-war. Anti-America left.
“Our hottest years have been 14 of the past 15 years”
Wait, what Mr. Obama? Your own government agencies say there has been no warming for the past 18 years and if anything, we are moving towards a period of global cooling. Our President really does need to talk to his people and allow them to help with his lies if he is interested in making his claims even remotely believable.
I don’t know why I thought this spasm of narcissism from Obama would mean anything. I am sure the sycophants and low information voters will believe his every word, meaning nothing has changed. He told Jon Stewart last week that the VA was vastly improved under his guidance. The next morning it was reported that VA wait times were up 40% .
How can anyone believe this wanna-be Dictator? The recession is not over Mr. President. People are still hurting, mainly thanks to you. But keep on telling your ignorant, bought and paid for minions that everything is fine. Someday–hopefully soon—you will make the normal, lying leads into your next speech and you will hear laughter rather than applause.
But as for now, continue sending Michelle and her 500 closest friends on high expense vacations. Continue acting like the emperor you believe yourself to be. It will soon come crashing down and you will wonder why your tyrant’s commands no longer work. And it will be easy to explain. You cannot speak to and treat the American people like peasants for sooner or later, they will rise up and take you down.
You’ll find out that is the REAL American way!
