Let The Record Play

Why isn’t Obama talking about his record while serving in the office of the presidency? We should all take heed and listen to the campaign that he is waging today, for it is a campaign of hate, fear, lies and racial division, So, since he won't talk about his record, I will, your friendly neighborhood "Black Conservative" you know, the one that they'll claim does not exist.  

He’s too humble.  He isn’t the fourth best; he’s the best of all the best.  At being an arrogant, pathological narcissist who is so in love with himself that all the failure in the world isn’t enough to make him question even for a moment that he is the messiah, and the only messiah with whom we should have to do.
Obama is messiah
Obama’s two signature “accomplishments” are his “stimulus” and what is most appropriately called ObamaCare.  They are both so rotten and so unpopular that he is not mentioning them at all as he runs for re-election.
Obama is reduced to making an argument that itself manifest his colossal God’s gift to not only women but hell, all mankind view of himself: he is saying that without him and his stimulus, we would have plunged into the Great Depression. Let's forget the fact that, when it comes to housing - the thing that created the economic collapse in 2008We saw the hypocrisy of the excuses when the stimulus was such a failure that Obama stated claiming that he’d created “or saved” jobs.

Professor Gregory Mankiw
Harvard economics Professor Gregory Mankiw said, “There is no way to measure how many jobs are saved.” Allan Meltzer, professor of political economy at Carnegie Mellon University said “One can search economic textbooks forever without finding a concept called ‘jobs saved.’ It doesn’t exist for good reason: how can anyone know that his or her job has been saved?”
Such a barometer had never been used in American history for good reason.  And if Bush had tried to use it to claim that his agenda was really working out – just look at how many jobs he’d “saved” – the media would have rightly been all over him as a liar from hell for trying to pass such absurdity off.
Allan Meltzer
But not now.  Obama is messiah.  He cannot be wrong.  If the stimulus clearly didn’t work on the physical level of reality, then it must have worked on the metaphysical level.
The unemployment rate has gone down, but it has “gone down” with the massive caveat that nearly three million people are giving up and abandoning the workforce completely (which means they no longer count against Obama’s unemployment record) for everyone who actually finds a job.
The truth is that Obama has lost 2.5 million jobs since he took office.  These jobs have simply ceased to exist under Obama, as measured by the labor participation rate.  The truth is that if Obama were measured by the same labor participation rate that Bush was measured by when he left office, unemployment would be at over 17.3% according to an analysis by Reuters, rather than the 8.3% Obama is being lauded for by media propaganda.  I mean, dang, even liberal Ezra Klein affirms that the real unemployment rate ought to be 15 percent.

But Obama doesn’t have to worry.  The number has gone down – no matter how falsely that number is calculated or what it hides – and the mainstream media says Obama is doing a wonderful job.
Analysis, which was released on July 8, ranked the 20 states with the highest average unemployment through May 2011: the first column shows the actual unemployment rate over the labor force; the second column reflects the number of discouraged workers added to the unemployment rate (also compiled from Census Bureau data) and if you’re a teenager, life really sucks for you.

Obama has screwed all the people he promised that he would save.  Even the reliably liberal Washington Post acknowledges that blacks have been set back decades under Obama’s misrule.  Black unemployment is TWICE the national average under Obama, and even überüberlib Maxine Waters is saying that rabid black support for Obama is hurting the black community.  And the black congressional caucus is tired of making excuses for this failed leader.

Who’s right???  And who’s totally freaking wrong???
Democrats are genuinely evil people. But to some extent they actually have good intentions, the road to hell is paved with democrat intentions.  Paved high and deep and wide.
Obama’s time in office has been a failure.  This is the 41st month of 8%+ unemployment… the longest period in post-WWII America.  The last time things dragged on this long was when a Democratic president launched a major stimulus program, “The New Deal”.

So the more stimulus, the worse things get and the more Democrats will want. It’s a vicious circle.
Since Obama’s policies have been a failure, it’s necessary to change the subject from the economy to Romney's tax record in order to muddy up the water  witch means throwing out some red meat to the masses.

But during all of this time we’re not talking about the economyIt’s all a distractionThe economy is terribleWe are 11 million jobs down versus what we had before the botton dropped out in 2008, and quarterly growth is decreasing (because of the stimulus). He'll say anything in order not to   discuss the economy! 
President Obama promised to reduce the federal budget deficit by the end of his term, in the fiscal year 2013, to something more than $500 billion. That would be roughly half of what it was projected to be when he took office. His blueprint for getting there, however, mostly reflects economic growth and the end of stimulus spending, not significant program reductions.

The president’s biggest challenge is the unsustainable long-term fiscal imbalance, driven by fast-growing health care costs. Obama has said his health care initiative would be a big step toward fiscal reform because the changes he proposed would begin controlling costs for Medicare and Medicaid. He also promised to address the government’s third big entitlement program, Social Security, but Democratic Congressional leaders are opposed.
Beyond relief for the unemployed and hard-hit states, it included down-payments on a raft of Mr. Obama’s promises — for energy, education, environmental and health programs, and for tax cuts for the middle class and small businesses.

But the tax cuts and the domestic programs were squeezed after 2010, when the stimulus ran out. Now, Mr. Obama is under pressure to reduce annual budget deficits projected to average over $1 trillion a year through the next decade.
President Obama campaigned on the promise of a sharp break from the Bush era on social issues like abortion, embryonic stem cell research and gay rights. He has only partly delivered.
Mr. Obama moved quickly to lift Mr. Bush’s limits on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research and to repeal the so-called Mexico City rule, which prohibited tax dollars from going to organizations that provide abortions overseas. But while he promised to work for legislation codifying a woman’s right to have an abortion, he now says that is “not my highest legislative priority.”
On gay rights, Mr. Obama fulfilled a major campaign promise in late October, when he signed legislation expanding the federal definition of violent hate crimes to include those based on sexual orientation. But the Defense of Marriage Act, which allows states to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states, remains on the books despite Mr. Obama’s pledge to work to undo it. The president has delivered on the promise most important to gay rights advocates: reversing “don’t ask, don’t tell,” the policy that bars gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military.

Overthrowing the Constitution  

For a man that spent ten years of his life teaching the constitution, he sure seem to violate quite often. 


 In signing ACTA, Obama has leapfrogged over the U.S. Constitution, critics charge. The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) was signed by the United States and several other countries on October 1 with little fanfare.

In wake of the recent uproar (and subsequent shelving) of the proposed United States’ bills SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act), however, many Americans are now turning their fears toward ACTA.

This is not surprising, as critics say that ACTA would censor the Internet even more severely than either SOPA or PIPA would have done. This treaty would trump all local and national laws.

Which is part of the reason critics, constitutional scholars, and one Senator is challenging Obama’s constitutional right to sign this treaty.

Obama claims that he signed it as an “executive agreement” which does not require Congressional approval. However, everyone else categorizes it as a treaty, which does require such approval.

But even if we let Obama bask in his delusion of signing an “executive agreement,” Constitutional experts say that he still does not have a right to sign it in the matter of copyright and patent laws.

The president has no independent constitutional authority over intellectual property or communications policy, and there is no long historical practice of making sole executive agreements in this area. To the contrary, the Constitution gives primary authority over these matters to Congress, which it charges with making laws that regulate foreign commerce and intellectual property. 

Remember N.D.A.A.? well a considerable setback for a president eager to ravage the due process rights of the American people, Federal Judge Kathleen Forrest granted a preliminary injunction striking down those sections of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2012 which sought to provide Obama with the power to indefinitely detain citizens without benefit of their 5th Amendment rights.

Signed very quietly into law on New Year’s Eve, the controversial Act has been roundly criticized as unconstitutional by groups on both the political left and right. Of greatest concern was Section 1021, which grants the United States military authority to exercise police powers on American soil. Upon order of the president and at his sole discretion, agents of the military are empowered to detain “until the end of hostilities” anyone the president wants detained. 
Senator Carl Levin
Nothing could more plainly reveal the rank corruption and lust for power of this Manchurian Candidate than his involvement in crafting and then misrepresenting the final text and authority of the NDAA. According to Democrat Senator Carl Levin, it was Obama himself who demanded American citizens be included under the detention law and that the President have exclusive authority to invoke the statute. “The language which precluded the application of Section 1021 to American citizens was in the bill that we originally approved…and the administration asked us to remove the language which says that U.S. citizens and lawful residents would not be subject to this section,” said Levin after the NDAA was signed into law.

Yet in his signing statement, Obama wrote that he had in fact forced Congress to “revise provisions that otherwise would have jeopardized the safety, security and liberty of the American people.” So rather than the grand inquisitor, committing to prison any American citizens he chose to view as enemies, Obama claimed to be their champion and savior, protecting them from the excesses of an over-zealous Congress! He went on to say “I want to clarify that my Administration will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens.” 

“My Administration will interpret section 1021 in a manner that ensures that any detention it authorizes complies with the Constitution, the laws of war, and all other applicable law.” This of course was an outright lie, given the expressed meaning of the statute as Obama himself had demanded it be written. Leave it to Barack Obama to demand he be given absolute authority over the American public, yet claim in the next moment that he will not take advantage of it! The Department of Justice, which defended the NDAA before Judge Forrest, will undoubtedly appeal her ruling. It is a judicial process Americans must watch closely as the free exercise of our Constitutional rights depends upon the outcome.

Higher unemployment, declining incomes and crushing debt is not a new normal. It is a result of misguided policies. In a world weary of war and economic crises, and concerned about global climate change, the consensus is that Obama has not lived up to the lofty expectations that surrounded his 2008 election and Nobel Peace Prize a year later. Many in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America were also taken aback by his support for gay marriage, a taboo subject among religious conservatives.
