230,000 Unemployed Americans Losing Jobless Benefits Over Weekend as Obama Golfs & Fund Raises as First Gay President


Question: Who is out of touch? Answer: President Barack Obama.

230,000 unemployed workers lost their jobless benefits over the weekend in 27 states as President Barack Obama played golf with VP Joe Biden. Is it any reason why Obama and his reelection minions are playing the politics of distraction with contrived news stories like the false GOP war on woman and Obama, the first gay president?

More than 230,000 unemployed workers will lose their jobless benefits this weekend as portions of federal programs expire across several states.

All told, 409,300 long-term unemployed Americans in 27 states will have lost upward of 20 weeks of federal unemployment benefits by this past Saturday, even as the many state jobless rates remain high, according to a new analysis by the National Employment Law Project (NELP).

The latest batch of cuts affects 236,300 unemployed people in eight states — California (11%), Texas (7%) Pennsylvania (7.5%), Florida (9%), Illinois (8.8%) North Carolina (9.7%) Colorado (7.8%) and Connecticut (7.7%) — half of which have jobless rates above the 8.1 percent national average posted in April.

However, these grim jobs numbers do not stop Obama from his golfing and fund raising. Honestly America, we cannot afford to have Obama reelected in 2012.

      How’s that touchy feeling thing working out for us Middle Class Americans who know many recent College Grads who cannot get jobs working out for you?

      Millions of Americans who still can’t pay their mortgages because, they, themselves CANNOT find jobs and are getting raped at the Gas Pumps at $4.00 per gallon?

      How can Obama claim he is in touch with the Middle Class when he, as a hypocritical MILLIONARE has NO CLUE WHAT IT IS TO STRUGGLE! He never struggled, the Harvard Law Grad was raised comfortably, and never starved or had to worry about paying his rent or mortgage.

      PLEASE! Spare me the bullshit, too about Romney being a “bully” in College or putting his dog on the roof for a family vacation a zillion years ago- who cares!

      If Romney can turn our economy around, stimulate the Stock Market, STOP THE OVER SPENDING of our Government and handing out more benefits to illegal aliens who live here—then he has my Vote!

      Bottom Line: Romney may not be the top pick- but he is the ONLY pick and


      The MISTAKE that is the President should end on

      1-20-2014. How many days is that? Get me a number, because I am counting them down and praying AMERICA DOES NOT GET FOOLED YET AGAIN.

      **** Romney/Rubio – 2012 *****
