Obama´s Economy:
What We´ve Learned
Since Re-election

Investor´s Business Daily, by IBD Staff

Obama II: In the "now they tell us" file, add a vast array of reports that have come out since the election showing just how weak the economy really is. Looks like the president will need a new scapegoat soon. Here´s just a sampling of what we´ve learned since voters decided to give Obama four more years to "experiment" with the economy. Earnings falling: The Labor Dept. reported on Thursday that real average hourly earnings dropped again in October for the third month in a row...

In the week before the election, both Bloomberg Business News and CNN had articles on, "Will Romney Inherit the Obama Recovery?" Theme of both stories was that after a slow start, Obama as the economy percolating, and Romney, of elected, will take credit for this.

Last para n this depressing article: Obama got re-elected largely by blaming Bush for everything bad that happened during his first term. So who´s he going to blame now?

Easy answer: Bush.

Obama doesn´t need to change a thing. He can still blame the mess that he inherited from the last guy in office.

It has been speculated that the way the Obama regime will finish off America is by wiping out small business, as that is the last engine of freedom and without that, America will not arise as a world power again.

Is it finally his economy? I thought all of this was Bush´s fault. Zippy is the most inept person to hold office ever. The dumbing down of America by the teachers union has worked. People are to stupid to know what they are doing to this once great country. I don´t know if we can ever recover from what this moron has done or will do. God Save America.

Where we are in he era of Obama:

For good reason the minority believe that the POTUS is actively out to destroy this country. He is either excellent at accomplishing this or he´s completely incompetent at running the country. Either way the result is the same.

The majority of voters don´t care about this as long as they can feel cool, and/or their benefits don´t run out and when the money does dry up they´ll blame someone other than the real culprits.

Yup, we´ve over the hill. I´m glad out ancestors aren´t here to see this.

We have always known that O. was out to destroy the country. It is still puzzling that the cowardly press is "all in" for the destruction. They do not care how much the people suffer, how high the Misery Index is, all they care about is the image of the rock star faux potus.

Our country has been destroyed by the unholy alliance of the regime and the press.

Does any intelligent person really think that those who vote for Obama either understand or care about the nation´s economy? A large number of them buy vehicles with the understanding that they will probably end up being repossessed. You can´t reason with those kind of people.

Vote democrat--it´s easier than getting a job.

The Obama voter is the one who typically thinks that a successful person is one who is just lucky or has "had all the breaks." The Obama voter is the one who probably cut class to smoke weed while the nerdy guy studied, and of course, he made the nerdy guy´s life hell. The quiet, hard-working people who have their priorities straight are in the minority now. But the Obama voter would take everything away from them in the interests of "fairness."

Not to worry #2: we´ll get a government guaranty in return.

Fool me once shame on you; fool me twice shame on me.

Will the fooled electorate awaken to see what the dims´ policies result in? What the dims´ true core expertise is?

Or shall we be shackled to a dependent majority that thinks that all of life´s bumps can and should be removed and thus are the victims of politicians who promise to remove them for a "small price." Is there at least hope the the dependent class will at least see that the bumps were not removed?

The Democrats blamed Herbert Hoover for the depression for 20 years that I know of. It always worked. I remember when my step father was urged to vote Republican. He had great trepidation. He screwed up his courage and bravely announced: "Well, I guess I can starve for four years."

Unfortunately, the un-intelligent 50% of the electorate, who are being hurt the most by this, will not connect the cause to Obama. The dems know this, too, so it will continue unabated.

Just 39% Think Federal
Income Tax System Is Fair

As millions of Americans rush to file their federal income tax returns on Tuesday, few will be thinking that the current tax code is the fairest one of all, according to the latest IBD/TIPP survey. Just 39% of Americans say today´s income tax code — which features multiple tax brackets along with myriad deductions and exemptions — is the fairest. As to what sort of tax system would be more fair, the public hasn´t made up its mind. Thirty-six percent say a flat tax is the fairest way to collect income taxes, while 19% would prefer a national sales tax. However, the survey

Can The ObamaCare Enrollment
Numbers Be Believed?

Posted By: RustMB- 4/10/2014 2:06:38 PM     Post Reply
When the Obama administration announced on April 1 that an estimated 7.1 million had signed up for ObamaCare by the end of March, it seemed a nearly impossible achievement. In every month before, sign-ups lagged behind the administration´s original forecast by wide margins and had fallen 1.4 million behind by the end of February. In mid-March, the AP said that it would take "close to a miracle" just to reach 6 million. And a Rand survey out this week puts enrollment by early March at less than 4 million. To reach 7.1 million, sign-ups had to rocket up by 67% in just one

Bias: The media are cheering a survey that, they say, shows ObamaCare is working miracles. It shows nothing of the kind. Meanwhile, they´re ignoring another report that finds ObamaCare-induced premium spikes. ´Millions More People Are Getting Health Insurance Because Of ObamaCare," screams a headline on the left-wing Huffington Post. Countless other major news outlets more or less echoed this line, calling it a big win for ObamaCare. They and others are all talking about a Rand Corp. survey that, in fact, finds no such thing. Rand asked people about changes in their insurance situation between last September and late March, as a way

Politics: This fall, Democrats will no doubt resurrect the "war on women" theme to try to hold the Senate. But they don´t really care about all women, just the unmarried ones. The IBD/TIPP poll shows why. According to the Washington Post, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is building a huge computer database that will let it predict women´s marital status. That way they can "pinpoint unmarried women as the target of specific, poll-test messages," according to one source quoted in the story. Despite all the talk among Democrats and the media about the "gender gap" that has supposedly resulted from what they say

GOP Blows Chance To Nail
Another ObamaCare Failure

Health Care: Republicans pushed a bill that would let small businesses continue to offer high-deductible plans to employees, despite ObamaCare. Sounds like a good idea. So why did the leadership try to hide it? The original plan for ObamaCare was to force every business with 50 or more employees to provide "affordable" coverage or pay a stiff fine, plus to sharply restrict the plans they could offer by, among other things, capping deductibles at $2,000 for workers. The cap was little more than a stealth attempt by Democrats to wreck Health Savings Accounts, which trade off high deductibles for tax-free savings accounts

Whatever Happened to
Medical Malpractice Reform?

President Obama might be thrilled that 7.1 million people apparently signed up for ObamaCare exchanges. But doctors have good reason to withhold their applause. Back in June 2009, Obama told a gathering of the American Medical Association that he was "looking at a range of ideas" that would stem the tide of costly medical malpractice lawsuits and "scale back the excessive defensive medicine." A few months later, he told Congress that "I´ve talked to enough doctors to know that defensive medicine may be contributing to unnecessary costs" and that he would borrow a page from President Bush and fund demonstration projects for

Bias: How much abuse will the mainstream media take before they stand up for themselves? When the abuse comes from the Obama administration, their tolerance appears to be unlimited. This week, for example, two things happened that should have sent reporters into a frenzy of outrage. First, there were reports that the Obama administration has effectively crippled the Freedom of Information Act, despite Obama´s promise of unequaled transparency. Nearly half the federal agencies got an F grade for FOIA compliance, according to a Center for Effective Government report. And Cause of Action discovered that the administration had created a new FOIA exemption,

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
