Remember when President Barack Obama spoke of the job recovery that was under way … Neither do most Americans!
During Barack Obama first State of the Union Address in 2009 he stated the following: “It’s an agenda that begins with jobs. As soon… As soon as I took office.” Instead he focused 100% on passing Obamacare against the will of the people.
According to the most recent CNN poll, not only is Barack Obama struggling with low job approval numbers and trust issues on Onamacare, with regards to the #1 issue facing Americas today, the economy, 59% things are going badly, only a mere 24% believe the economic recovery is under way. Exactly how long has Obama been making that promise? And instead of making jobs the number one issue, he goes out of his way to destroy jobs with over-regulation and his healthcare and energy agenda. Obamacare has caused business to fire individuals or reduce the jobs from full-time to part-time. An his energy policies are doing their best to destroy the coal industry in the United States.
Americans views on the state of the nation are turning increasingly sour, according to a new national poll.
And a CNN/ORC International survey released Friday also indicates that less than a quarter of the public says that economic conditions are improving, while nearly four in ten say the nation’s economy is getting worse.
Forty-one percent of those questioned in the poll say things are going well in the country today, down nine percentage points from April, and the lowest that number has been in CNN polling since February 2012.Fifty-nine percent say things are going badly, up nine points from April.
Besides an obvious partisan divide, which contributes to a urban-rural gap, the survey also indicates a difference of opinion between younger and older Americans.
So its not just Obamacare that Americans are dissatisfied with Barack Obama. It is coming from all directions and at some point it will reach the point of no return, if it already hasn’t.
Yea, imagine if we actually did what Obama promised and did oil exploration in the US and made dependency on Middle East oil a thing of the past. Imagine if we regulated less and allowed the American industrial machine to take off. Imagine if we allowed for increases in nuclear, clean coal, oil, natural gas and the dreaded fracking
Imagine what we could accomplish if we followed their example. Think about the America within our reach: A country that leads the world in educating its people. An America that attracts a new generation of high-tech manufacturing and high-paying jobs. A future where we’re in control of our own energy, and our security and prosperity aren’t so tied to unstable parts of the world. An economy built to last, where hard work pays off, and responsibility is rewarded.
The very small business jobs that Obama is touting are the very one’s that Obamacare is destroying.
But we have never measured progress by these yardsticks alone. We measure progress by the success of our people. By the jobs they can find and the quality of life those jobs offer. By the prospects of a small business owner who dreams of turning a good idea into a thriving enterprise. By the opportunities for a better life that we pass on to our children.
This recession has also compounded the burdens that America’s families have been dealing with for decades – the burden of working harder and longer for less; of being unable to save enough to retire or help kids with college. [Save enough? How are Americans supposed to save with the increase in energy costs, the price at the pump and high premium costs of Obamacare? Let along college ids can't get jobs.]
The plan that has made all of this possible, from the tax cuts to the jobs, is the Recovery Act. That’s right – the Recovery Act, also known as the Stimulus Bill. Economists on the left and the right say that this bill has helped saved jobs and avert disaster. But you don’t have to take their word for it. [Yea, how did that "Hopey-Changey" stimulus waste of tax payers money work out for you America?]
That is why jobs must be our number one focus in 2010, and that is why I am calling for a new jobs bill tonight.[What was his #1 focus, jobs or Obamacare?]
You don’t need to hear another list of statistics to know that our economy is in crisis, because you live it every day. It’s the worry you wake up with and the source of sleepless nights. It’s the job you thought you’d retire from but now have lost, the business you built your dreams upon that’s now hanging by a thread, the college acceptance letter your child had to put back in the envelope.
The impact of this recession is real, and it is everywhere. [Hmm, doesn't it sound like Barack is talking about the affects of Obamacare on families and businesses?]

CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo Says ObamaCare Forcing America to Become a Part-Time Employment Country as Businesses Shift to Part-Time Workers
The heck with the Obamacare website glitches, Obamacare has much worse consequences on America and Americans … Obamacare is a full-time job killer.
CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo said on ‘Meet the Press’ on Sunday that “ObamaCare is forcing businesses to shift to part-time workers.” She went on to say that America was “becoming something of a part-time employment country.” However, no one in the MSM wants to address the fact that Obama’s signature piece of legislation is causing American workers to lose their full-time jobs. Isn’t that special, in order for a small minority of people to have access to insurance, all Americans are forced to buy insurance or else pay a tax, and workers are losing money in their pay checks as businesses shift to a part-time work model. Thanks Barack Obama.
Intentional or irony … Obama’s signature piece of legislation kills FT jobs and affects the middle class, the very people he claims to be for? Is it any wonder why Obama is the worst jobs president in modern times.
Maria Bartiromo is sadly100% correct. Check out Zero Hedge, where of the 953,000 jobs created in 2013, 77%, or 731,000 are part-time ones. Many businesses are are now only hiring PT employees in order to avoid Obamacare or are shifting those that were full-time to part-time. Who didn’t see that coming?
Another Disasterous Obama Jobs Report: Only 169,000 New Jobs Created in August …Jule & July Revised Down by 74K Jobs … Black Unemplyment Up to 13% … Labor Participation Rate Falls to 5 Year Low of 63.2%
No wonder Barack Obama wants to start a war in Syria … have you taken a look at the miserable jobs report from yesterday thanks to Obamanomicis and Obama’s failed jobs recover?
Yesterday’s jobs report for August 2013 could not have been more miserable. The unemployment rate fell from dropped from 7.4% to 7.3%, but for all the wrong reasons. A pathetic 169,000 jobs were created in August 2013, but it was the 35 year low of the labor participation rate that actually caused the unemployment rate to drop. Americans are literally giving up and have stopped looking for jobs and no longer counted in the unemployment numbers, To make matters worse, the jobs data was revised downward by a total of 74,000 jobs for June and July 2013. The numbers for teenagers, blacks and Hispanics are a disaster. Among teenagers, the unemployment rate is 22.7%; for African Americans, it’s 13%; for Hispanics, 9.3%.
Obama and Obamanomics has been an “Epic Failure”. But if you want to be on welfare and food stamps, he’s your man.
America, you voted this failed President back in for a second term, why?
“The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for June was revised from +188,000 to +172,000, and the change for July was revised from +162,000 to +104,000.” That means we added 74,000 fewer jobs than we thought in June and July.
CNS News: 90,473,000: Record Number Not in Labor Force–Up Almost 10M Under Obama.
The number of Americans who are 16 years or older and who have decided not to participate in the nation’s labor force has pushed past 90,000,000 for the first time, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The BLS counts a person as participating in the labor force if they are 16 years or older and either have a job or have actively sought a job in the last four weeks. A person is not participating in the labor force if they are 16 or older and have not sought a job in the last four weeks.
In July, according to BLS, 89,957,000 Americans did not participate in the labor force. In August, that climbed to 90,473,000–a one month increase of 516,000.
Bureau of Labor Statistics report report (age, gender, race, etc.) the unemployment rate among blacks increased the most – almost a full half-point, from 12.6% to 13%.
Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult men(7.1 percent), adult women (6.3 percent), teenagers (22.7 percent),whites (6.4 percent), blacks (13.0 percent), and Hispanics (9.3percent) showed little change in August. The jobless rate for Asianswas 5.1 percent (not seasonally adjusted), little changed from a year earlier. (See tables A-1, A-2, and A-3.)
Other disastrous jobs data from the worst president ever. Obama claims he is for the middle class, yet has only benefited the top 5%. The very people who voted for Obama, blacks and young voters, have been the most adversely affected by his poor economy policies.
- Under Barack Obama Only 5% Have Recovered from Recession, the Other 95% are Still Experiencing It.
- Teen Employment Hits Record Lows Under Barack Obama Presidency … Great Depression for Teens.
Can’t blame this one on George W. Bush … How can Obama actually says he cares?
How’s that “Hopey-Changey” thing working out for your teens in America? Thanks to Barack Obama, we are witness to a Great Depression for teens. How is it that young people are for Barack Obama when none of them can get a job thanks to is moronic handling of the economy? And they have nothing better to look forward to when they leave their teens as well. Obama has been a disaster for the economy and jobs. He constantly says that he is focused like a laser on creating jobs, but continues to be an epic failure. The teen employment numbers get even worse when you look at race. When comparing June and July 2000 and the same two months of 2013 … in 2000, 61.28% of white teens 16 to 19 held a job, a number that fell to 39.25% this summer. But for African-Americans, the number that was completely pathetic. In 2000, 33.91% of 16 to 19 year old’s holding a job, fell to a staggering low of 19.25 percent this June and July. Good grief, that should be criminal. If Obama was nit black the NAACP would be marching in the streets. Obama has been a disgrace to the black community, yet they support him like he actually cared.
These job numbers border of child abuse.
Obama shakes the hands of unemployed teens
For the fourth consecutive summer, teen employment has stayed anchored around record lows, prompting experts to fear that a generation of youth is likely to be economically stunted with lower earnings and opportunities in years ahead.
The trend is all the more striking given that the overall unemployment rate has steadily dropped, to 7.4 percent in August. And employers in recent months have been collectively adding almost 200,000 new jobs a month. It led to hopes that this would be the summer when teen employment improved.
In 1999, slightly more than 52 percent of teens 16 to 19 worked a summer job. By this year, that number had plunged to about 32.25 percent over June and July. It means that slightly more than three in 10 teens actually worked a summer job, out of a universe of roughly 16.8 million U.S. teens.
“We have never had anything this low in our lives. This is a Great Depression for teens, and no time in history have we encountered anything like that,” said Andrew Sum, director of the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University in Boston. “That’s why it’s such an important story.”
Is is any wonder why Barack Obama wants to start a war with Syria and take the focus off of his dismal domestic policies, record, failures and scandals?

President Barack Obama … the 5% President. CNBC reports, Obama’s policies have only benefited the top 5%. What else would you expect from the “phony” President who claims he is for the middle class to get their vote and then vacations and hangs with the 1%, or 5% as the case may be. His very policies have helped the rich, not those he claims are his peeps. 95% of Americans are still experiencing the recession.
Ha, and you thought I cared, I cared about your vote, nothing more
How strong the economic recovery has been since the Great Recession ended in 2009 probably depends on viewpoint.
For those in the top 5 percent, the recovery has been pretty good.
As for the other 95 percent, well … maybe not so much.
Post-financial crisis wealth disparity has been well-chronicled.
Federal Reserve Gov. Sarah B. Raskin drew widespread attention with this speech in April that showed how poorly the lower income levels have fared during the recovery, particularly because those demographics have their wealth concentrated in housing and are hit far more severely by falling prices.
The unemployed in lower-income groups also take a hit because they have a more difficult time finding jobs that pay at a rate commensurate with the positions they lost.
The conclusion isn’t pretty:
Huge leaps in the income and wealth of the top 5 percent mask the decline of income and wealth of the bottom 95 percent. Average all wealth and income and it appears that the economy is expanding to the benefit of all, when it fact only the top 5 percent have escaped the recession; the recession never ended for the bottom 95 percent.
And there’s more:
An even better way to create an illusory expansion is to simply not measure trends that would reveal a deepening recession. For example, what percentage of student loans are purposefully taken out as a substitute for income, i.e. used to pay basic living expenses rather than education? Anecdotally, there is plentiful evidence that a great many people are signing up for one class at the local community college in order to get a student loan to live on.
The US Economy in Disarray, Millions Out of Work, Record Number of Americans on Food Stamps … When the Going Gets Tough … Obama Goes on Vacation to Martha’s Vineyard Golfing
More from the ‘Golfer’ in Chief who could not give a damn about the American people or America … Let them eat my putter.
Wow, Barack Obama looks like he is focused like a laser on job creation for American’s doesn’t he? Seriously, how can any one take this president seriously that he cares about Americans working, creating jobs (full time ones), lowering the budget, the Middle East and dealing with the scandals that plague his presidency when he does everything to the contrary. In July 2010 President Barack Obama promised suffering Americans the following:
“I will not rest until everyone American who is able, and ready and willing to work can find a job. And a job that pays a decent wage and has decent benefits to support a family. (VIDEO)”
What was Obama’s answer to the American people … another 100+ wounds of golf as his vacations with “Lief Styles of the Rich and Famous’ on Martha’s Vineyard. Just curious Mr. President, how’s that diversity on Martha’s Vineyard?
Sorry, but what would the MSM, NAACP, liberals et al outrage be if Barack Obama was a White Republican president, the black unemployment was as high as it is? Don’t be deceived by the faux stories that it is going down. The only reason why it has fallen a little is because of PT jobs and blacks have given up and left the work force as well.
HOW DID THIS CLOWN GET REELECTED!!!
EXIT QUESTION … How can any one play so many rounds of golf and still suck at the game? Nice chip Mr. President, NOT!!!

Another Disastrous Jobs Report: July 2013 Unemployment Drops to 7.4% as only 162K Jobs Created and Another 37K Leave Workforce … May & June Numbers Revised Down
More from Barack Obama, the worst jobs president ever … Yea, Obama is just focused like a laser on creating jobs.
The July 2013 jobs numbers are out and they are a complete and total disaster. For the uninterested, uninformed and apathetic individual, otherwise known as an Obama voter, the unemployment number looks great as it fell from 7.5% to 7.4% for July. However, it fell for all the wrong reasons. The analysts were expecting about 185K jobs to be created in July; however, the number came in much lower at 162K. Also, total nonfarm payroll employment for May 2013 was revised down from +195,000 to +176,000, and the change for June 2013 was revised down as well from +195,000 to +188,000. With these revisions, employment gains in May and June combined were 26,000 less than previously reported.
Those pathetic job numbers are not because I am the worst president ever, it’s cuz of those phony scandals …
As reported at Zero Hedge Fund, the rate dropped because the civilian labor force declined from 155,835 to 155,798 or 37K, driven by an increase of people not in labor force to 89,957 – just shy of the all time high. This also means that the labor force participation rate once again ticked down to 63.4% from 63.5%.
Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 162,000 in July, and the unemployment rate edged
down to 7.4 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment rose in
retail trade, food services and drinking places, financial activities, and wholesale trade.
Household Survey Data
Both the number of unemployed persons, at 11.5 million, and the unemployment rate, at 7.4 percent,
edged down in July. Over the year, these measures were down by 1.2 million and 0.8 percentage
point, respectively. (See table A-1.)
Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult women (6.5 percent) and blacks
(12.6 percent) declined in July. The rates for adult men (7.0 percent), teenagers (23.7 percent),
whites (6.6 percent), and Hispanics (9.4 percent) showed little or no change. The jobless rate
for Asians was 5.7 percent (not seasonally adjusted), little changed from a year earlier. (See
tables A-1, A-2, and A-3.)
The Job Killing Obama Healthcare Legislation Law … 74% of Small Businesses will Fire Workers and Cut Hours under Obamacare
Obamacare … this is the reason why a bill that affects so many Americans is supposed to be read, discussed and passed by a bipartisan vote.
According to a recent poll, the Chambers survey showed that three-quarters of small businesses are still making plans to avoid the costly Obamacare law by firing workers to get under 50 employees, reducing hours of full-time staff, or shift many to part-time. At a time in which the unemployment rate is consistently above 7%, so many Americans find themselves underemployed and food stamps are at an all time high, now small businesses have this terrible law thrust upon than that is a job killer and will now have workers converted for full time to part time. The Obama administration has already delayed the employer mandate until 2015 as they scramble to implement this fiasco. The House looks to take a vote to delay the individual mandate as well. However, no matter, whether the delay is one year or 2, employers are already making decisions to deal with the law so to defray the new expenses in Obamacare. So can some one explain again how Obamacare is good for America?
Despite the administration’s controversial decision to delay forcing companies to join Obamacare for a year, three-quarters of small businesses are still making plans to duck the costly law by firing workers, reducing hours of full-time staff, or shift many to part-time, according to a sobering survey released by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
“Small businesses expect the requirement to negatively impact their employees. Twenty-seven percent say they will cut hours to reduce full time employees, 24 percent will reduce hiring, and 23 percent plan to replace full time employees with part-time workers to avoid triggering the mandate,” said the Chamber business survey provided to Secrets.
Under Obamacare, just 30 hours — not the nationally recognized 40 hours — is considered full-time. Companies with 50 full-time workers or more are required to provide health care, or pay a fine.
- 77 percent continue to think the U.S. economy is on the wrong track. However, small businesses are more optimistic about their local economy and individual business.
- The majority (61 percent) of small businesses do not have plans to hire next year.
- Concerns about regulation have increased significantly from 35 percent last quarter to 42 percent now.
This should come as a shock to no one, you were all warned that this would happen. But we were just called racists and Obama haters. No, we were calling the signature piece of Barack Obama legislation for what it was, a disaster that was terrible for Americans and America.
How’s that “Hopey-Changey” stuff working out for ya America?
Obamanomics has been an unmitigated disaster. The economy is a disaster and any reports that it is getting better is hogwash. A record number of Americans are on food stamps, the actual unemployment rate is much higher than the presently reported 7.6%.And then we have the real indicator that tells us how Americans are really doing. According to a CNN poll via Town Hall, 76% of Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck. For all the promises that Obama has made that he would make the economy better and in turn the lives of Americans. The joke is on you America. Obama may be an empty suit, but he has left 76% of Americans with empty pockets.
Roughly three-quarters of Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck, with little to no emergency savings, according to a survey released by Bankrate.com Monday.
Fewer than one in four Americans have enough money in their savings account to cover at least six months of expenses, enough to help cushion the blow of a job loss, medical emergency or some other unexpected event, according to the survey of 1,000 adults. Meanwhile, 50% of those surveyed have less than a three-month cushion and 27% had no savings at all.
To make matters worse, in the past three days, Americans has lost countless money in their 401k’s with the DOW tanking after Fed chairman Ben Bernanke’s comments last week that they are going to taper back the flow of money and artificially supporting the markets. Bernanke said the economy is getting better. REALLY? 76% of Americans would disagree with you sir.
HOW IN THE HELL WAS BARACK OBAMA, THIS EPIC FAILURE REELECTED!!!
Obama is No GWB … 88,000 Jobs Created in March, Labor Force Participation Rate Falls to 34 Year Low, Americans Dying in Afghanistan & North Korea Threatening Nuclear War as Barack Obama Plays Golf for Second Weekend in a Row
Barack Obama is the worst United States President ever, surpassing even Jimmy Carter … Obama just does not even pretend to care about Americans.
President Barack “Nero” Obama might as well be playing a fiddle as opposed to golfing as the United States collapses and the world burns. On Friday, we learned that the US created a pathetic 88,000 jobs as the unemployment rate fell to 7.6% thanks to the Labor participation rate falling to 34-Year Low of 63.3%, the lowest since May 1979. We all know who was president then, don’t we? More Americans were killed in Afghanistan, the despot dictator of North Korea Kim Jong-un has been threatening nuclear war, the Middle East continues to be a tinderbox, not to mention the record level number of Americans on food stamps and escalated gas and health care prices. All this going on and this clown we call a president goes golfing yet again, for the second weekend in a row.
Shh, don’t let anyone know I could care less about ‘We the People,” it’s all about what perks I can get out of this job
President Obama went out for a round of golf Saturday afternoon, his second weekend in a row to hit the links at a course at Joint Base Andrews. The president golfed with White House aides Marvin Nicholson, Joe Paulsen, and Michael Brush.
When will this president ever take his job seriously and actually show one ounce of empathy with the struggling American people? The answer is never, because that is what this 1% president is all about. Sacrifice is your you, not him. It is “We the People” who are supposed to struggle and make it possible for Obama and his family and the Biden’s to take multiple vacations, while American families stay home. It is obvious Obama could care less about the American people, and a note to black folks, that means you too. Obama acts like nothing is going wrong, yet everything a catastrophe, down to his all important NCAA basketball brackets.
EXIT QUESTION: Would the MSM let a Republican president get away with the perception that a president could care less and go on as business as usual as they demand Americans sacrifice and in the middle of sequestration where others are having their life styles cut? Back in 2012, Obama had played four times more golf than George W. Bush did in eight years. Ironically, it sounds all too familiar to Obama’s budget spending as well. Remember when President GWB gave up golf because in his words, he did not think it was right as Commander in Chief and it sent the wrong message. It is very unfortunate we have a current president in Obama who does not feel the same as Americans continue to die and millions struggle out of work.
“I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander-in-chief playing golf,” Bush said. “I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them.”
“And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong message,” Bush said.
