They don’t call Barack Obama the Food Stamp President for nothing …

Welcome to the new normal under President Barack Obama.  Newly released data show that participation in Food Stamps, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, has reached yet another all time high in September 2012. Thanks Barack Obama. Food Stamp participation increased in September alone by 607,559. The number of households enrolled in the program also increased in September by 289,235. You reelected him America, expect more of the same for the next four years.

Participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or food stamps, reached another high in September, according to new data released by the United Stated Department of Agriculture.

Oh yea, the economy is getting much better now isn’t it?


Democrat Maryland Gov. O’Malley Says Americans Not Better Off Than They Were 4 Years Ago, Then Says But That’s Not the Question … Still Blaming Bush, Obama without Responsibility

Finally we have a Democrat that says America is not better off today than they were 4 years ago.

I guess Gov. Martin O’Malley (MD-D) did not get the complete talking point memo from David Axelrod that all Obama operatives are to dodge the question of whether you are better off today than you were 4 years ago. On CBS’s ‘Face the Nation’ Gov. O’Malley said that Americans are not better off than they were four years ago. Oops. But then he and Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter went on to bash GWB and blame it all on Bush. Really, is that what you are going to go with and tell the American people after four years of false promises and failed policies?

Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley (Md.) said Sunday that voters were not better off now than four years ago, but said the economic mess left by the former Bush administration was to blame, not President Obama.

O’Malley was asked by CBS host Bob Schieffer on “Face the Nation” if he could “honestly say that people are better off today than they were four years ago?”

“No,” replied O’Malley, a prominent Obama surrogate, adding “but that’s not the question of this election.”

This is just sad and pathetic. Inherited a unique situation, eh? So to tell me that what Obama inherited was worse than what Ronald Reagan inherited from Jimmy Carter in 1980? I do not think so. The stagflation and “Misery Index” under Carter was unprecedented with double digit unemployment, inflation and mortgage rates. Granted under Obama, inflation and mortgage rates have been replaced with foreclosures and bankruptcy. Once in office did Regan blame Carter? No, instead Reagan was responsible for unprecedented jobs growth with Reaganomics as “many economists have stated that Reagan’s policies were an important part of bringing about the second longest peacetime economic expansion in U.S. history, and followed by an even longer 1990s expansion that began under George H.W. Bush in 1991.” What does Obama and his minions do, whine about what they inherited and claim that a meager and anemic job growth is a success.

Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter, appearing on the show alongside O’Malley defended the president’s record, saying the economic recovery was well under way.

The Obama campaign acknowledges voters are concerned about the economy, but says the administration inherited unique and challenging conditions from former President Bush.

America is tired of excuses and echoes the sentiments of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush when he stated at last weeks Republican National Convention its time to stop blaming other “… So Mr. President it is time to stop blaming your predecessor for your failed economic policies. You were dealt a tough hand, but your policies have not worked. In the 4th year of your presidency, a real leader would accept responsibility for his actions and you have not done that.”

Sorry, every President inherits some thing for a previous administration. Obama knew what he was getting into. To hear them whine, maybe Barack Obama should never have run in the first place in 2008? It would appear the Community Organizer only wants perfect situations. You may have inherited it Barack, but your policies and liberal agenda have made matters worse and prolonged the recession.

Jimmy Carter to Speak Via VIDEO at Democrat National Convention, Oh Boy, Didn’t He Lose a Landslide Reelection during Bad Economy?

Jimmy Carter to remind Democrats that Obama is just an extension of his first failed term in office …

Wow, this will certain fire up the Democrat troops, former President Jimmy Carter will speak via video at the Democrat National Convention. Because Carter has been just so relevant. But then again why not have Carter speak at the event, isn’t Barack Obama really just Carter’s second failed term as President? This should be truly inspiring as Carter reminds us of the days of the misery he inflicted upon the American people and the subsequent landslide loss he had to Ronald Reagan when Carter ran for reelection. Independents watching the Democrat National Convention might be deciding among themselves who had the worst economic vision, Carter or Obama? Jimmy carter had the misery index, Obama has just provided misery for millions of out of work Americans.

Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama, Perfect Together

Former president Jimmy Carter won’t be attending the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, but he’ll address the gathering by videotape.

“Rosalynn and I regret that we will be unable to be at the Democratic Convention this year in Charlotte. However, we remain steadfast in our support for President Obama and the progress he will make in the next four years,” Carter said in a statement released by the Democratic convention.

Exit Question: Does Obama really want a president who is considered the biggest failure so that people watching can make comparisons between the two and the dude who lost in a landslide for reelection during a bad economy?

Obama … Carter’s Second Term on Steroids: Americans’ Satisfaction Almost as Low as It Was Under Carter

The sycophant MSM liken Barack Obama to Lincoln and Reagan. Wrong, Obama is Jimmy Carter …

President Barack Obama is looking to eclipse yet another dubious record. With just nine months to go before the 2012 Presidential election, only 22% of Americans say they are satisfied with the way things are going.Yet another dragging indicator for Obama ahead of the election. What voter who is on the fence is going to vote for an incumbent who so many believe is taking the country in the wrong direction? Just a mere 22% say they are satisfied. That number seems rather high in my opinion.

It’s February, nine months before a presidential election, and only 22 percent of Americans say they are satisfied with the way things are going. Voters haven’t been this unhappy with the country since George H.W. Bush’s presidency, when only 21 percent of Americans reported being happy with the country’s direction. And before that, the lowest approval rating was 19 percent during Jimmy Carter’s first term.

What do the two presidencies have in common? Neither of them won re-election. And, if the trends holds true, Obama looks to be in an equally precarious situation. [Read about the 10 Worst Presidents.]

Gallup Poll: Most Americans Still Say They Are Better Off Than Their Parents … Might Want to Check Out that $15+ Trillion Debt


A recent Gallup poll showed that most Americans still say they are better off than their parents. REALLY? 69% of those polled said that they were better off than their parents, 29% said, not so much. Unless you are comparing your parents who lived during The Great Depression or the Carter 1970′s, the poll results are a bit hard to believe. Heck, many are not better off than I was in my mid to late 20′s. Of course those making more $’s say they are better off; however, I really wonder how much the younger folks in this survey understand the debt they owe in the future. They might be singing a different tune.

High-income Americans are significantly more likely than those with lower incomes to say they are doing better financially than their parents were when they were the same age. Still, even a majority of lower-income Americans say they are better off financially than their parents were.

Maybe Gallup should have polled the 1 year old to 10 year old demographic and the unborn who will be responsible for paying off the out of control $15 trillion (DEBT CLOCK), every growing debt run up by those who state they are better off then their parents! With this present economy, the number of unemployed, records number of food stamps, poor housing market, energy costs and the out of control federal debt, it is hard to believe how individuals think they are better off than their parents.

The fact that you have less liberties today than your parents did automatically makes you less better off than your parents.

Oh but wait according to ABC News, seniors will get an increase of $38 a month. BIG WOOP! Reason why there is an increase … inflation is on the rise.
