• Josh Earnest: Obama’s Policies ‘Staved Off The Second Great Depression’

    Political grandstanding has reached an all-time high this week with the grand finale coming tonight in Obama’s primetime State of the Union speech.

    Obama has visited several states in an attempt to turn as many Americans on as possible to his easily-forgettable plans to tax the rich and spending more borrowed money.

    To hear White House press dummy Josh Earnest tell it, we’d all be in the midst of the apocalypse if it weren’t for “Obama’s policies.”

    Josh Earnest says America “has made tremendous progress in the economy,” thanks to Obama’s economic agenda. And “because of the president’s policies,” Earnest claims, “we actually staved off the second Great Depression.”

    Okay, Josh. America may not be in Great Depression mode, but Obama’s economic policies have certainly made things worse for all Americans. The numbers don’t lie.

    Since 2008, more employer business startups have failed than have succeeded.

    The number of Americans on food stamps, at nearly 46.5 million, is almost double the amount when Obama took office in 2009.

    A recent CNBC All-America Economic survey found that “just 24 percent of Americans say they are extremely or quite confident in the president’s economic policies and goals, while 44 percent say they have no confidence at all in the president on the economy,” according to CNBC.

    One in six men between 25 and 54 years old aren’t working. Gas prices are down, despite Obama. But Americans have been paying more money for food for years under Obama’s watch.

    Youth unemployment is chronically high, so much so that that group of Americans are now being called “the lost generation.

    Black women are the only demographic whose unemployment rate didn’t improved in 2014.

    What a bang job Obama’s doing. Not.

    The American people are overwhelmingly against Obama’s economic agenda. Nearly half the country disapproves of Obama’s handling of the economy. Obama’s speech tonight will likely turn even more Americans against him.
