Obama: ‘It’s Pretty Hard To Find
An Economic Measure Where We’re

Daily Caller, by Brendan Bordelon

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/24/2014 8:49:26 PM

President Obama put his rosy glasses on for an interview with CNBC on Thursday, claiming “It’s pretty hard to find an economic measure where we’re not significantly better off.” Obama spoke with CNBC’s Steve Liesman about the economic policies pushed by the White House and what the federal government expects going forward. “What can you tell average Americans about the outlook of the economy?” Liesman asked, noting that even Obama’s own former economic advisor Larry Summers is forecasting lower growth over the next few years. Obama dismissed that notion. “If you think about where we were, Steve, when I came

Comments:
It is so terribly that this pathologically lying psychotic megalomaniac running this country. I know, tell me how you really feel. Of course when the reporter did push back Obama blamed it all on anything other than his crushing regulations and policies.

He gets away with this because he only talks to the dummies. That´s how he got elected, that´s how he rolls, that´s why he goes on CNBC and demonizes his intellectual betters from the conservative part of the political spectrum, rather than engage them.

Since he hasn´t paid for anything in the past six years he has no idea of the "Economic Measure" at the Super Markets or at the Pump or for second rate vegetables or fruit from Mexico. The man is a freaking idiot bound and determined to impose his low life attitude on America. Oh lets not forget his fat bottomed wife´s diet for the school kids, and she´s getting away with that because your children are all wards of the state for 5 to 6 hours per day.

#5, you are so right about prices. Today at the supermarket, customers were spontaneously commenting to each other how outrageous the prices were, in aisle after aisle. I have never seen this happen before.

An elderly lady put back a box of Social Tea cookies, saying for the first time in her life she couldn´t afford them--$5.29/box. The meat prices were off the charts, butter was over $5.00/lb., and ground chuck was $4.99/lb.

Ten million Americans who ere working when George Bush was President are not working today and are too discouraged to look. Are they better off?
More people are on food stamps than ever before. Are they better off (actually in his warped Liberal brain they are).
There is an incremental burden of 7 trillion dollars of debt which our descendents have to pay off. The proceeds from that debt have been essentially wasted. Are we and our children better off
This whole discussion is ridiculous.

He wouldn´t know economic if it came from behind and bit him on his donkey (ass)

If a spread SHEET were given to him, after asking um um um um um what is this?; he would wrap it around his head or promptly go on a picnic lunch and spread it on the table to catch crumbs and deter ants. Surely there is a cartoon character out there who relays the message obomba is presenting, but at the moment only Inspector Clouseau, Adam Smart or Sgt Schultz come to mind.

A writer has been hired to adapt the story of Kermit Gosnell, the doctor who was convicted of murdering live babies out of his Philadelphia abortion clinic, into a Hollywood film. The writer, Andrew Klavan, is a bestselling author whose novel True Crime was previously turned into a Clint Eastwood film.

Tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors from Central America who have recently crossed into the United States will cost state and local governments a staggering $761 million dollars this year, a group that favors immigration reduction has calculated. The Federation for American Immigration Reform, which is pushing for reduced legal immigration and stronger border security, made its calculation based on federal government data indicating that more than 37,000 children who are part of the recent border surge have now been placed with families across the United States and are eligible to attend public schools.

"We are aware of over 100 U.S. citizens who have U.S. passports who are fighting in the Middle East with [ISIS] forces. There may be more, we don´t know," Hagel told CNN in an interview.

Yesterday came word, through a former Pentagon official, that President Obama received detailed and specific intelligence about the rise of ISIS via the President’s Daily Brief for at least a year before the group took large swaths of territory beginning in June 2014. The former official told Fox News that the data was strong, and “granular” in detail. He added that a policy maker “could not come away with any other impression [than] this is getting bad.” Yet in January, at least six months after these warnings began, Obama famously proclaimed ISIS “the jayvee.” And in recent weeks, the administration has

Two former U.S. senators, Trent Lott and John Breaux, have been hired by a state-controlled Russian bank to lobby against U.S. sanctions put in place because of Russia’s aggression towards Ukraine. A lobbying registration form filed Friday shows that Gazprompank GPB hired the firm Squire Patton Boggs to lobby on issues including “banking laws and regulations including applicable sanctions,” a report from the Center for Public Integrity reads. Gazprombank GPB is a subsidiary of Gazprombank, Russia’s third-largest financial institution. It is controlled by the state-controlled energy company Gazprom. In July, the U.S. Treasury Department slapped Gazprombank and several other large Russian companies with

Republicans are launching an investigation into the cozy relationship between the Environmental Protection Agency and an environmental lobbying group that has allegedly played a major role in crafting recent global warming rules and stymieing an Alaska mining project. Louisiana Sen. David Vitter and California Rep. Darrell Issa sent a letter to the EPA and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) asking for records regarding the environmental group’s role in drafting a rule limiting carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants, and blocking a permit for the Pebble Mine in Alaska. “It appears that NRDC’s unprecedented access to high-level EPA officials

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS.

FRIENDSHIP, Maine -- Imagine Cape Cod without cod. Maine without lobster. The region´s famous rocky beaches invisible, obscured by constant high waters. It´s already starting to happen. The culprit is the warming seas - and in particular the Gulf of Maine, whose waters are heating up faster than 99 percent of the world´s oceans, scientists say. Long-established species of commercial fish, like cod, herring and northern shrimp, are departing for colder waters. Black sea bass, blue crabs and new species of squid - all highly unusual for the Gulf - are turning up in fishermen´s nets. The Gulf of Maine´s warming reflects broader

Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit. He told the assembly that the principles of Allah will benefit the whole world. Jimmy Carter left the Southern Baptist Church a few years back, citing its “rigid” views. Muslim views tend to be a whole lot more “rigid.” For instance, Saudi Arabia doesn’t allow Christians to build any churches. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood supporters are waging pogroms against Christians. If a Muslim leaves Islam, they are called an apostate and are often marked or death. One can be an apostate just by having

Rudy Giuliani has plans to change golf. The former mayor, a strategic adviser to the PGA, says he wants to make the game “simpler” by shortening rounds to 12 holes. “We have to make it simpler and easier. Let’s shorten the course and make playing 12 holes instead of 18 holes the norm,” Giuliani declared in a Hamptons magazine cover story with golfer Raymond Floyd. “I’ve played tennis for 20 years, and I’ve never played five sets like the pros do,” he explained. “I’ll play three sets with my pals. So why play 18 holes? That’s what pros do to win tournaments.” Giuliani
