Skip to comments.Bad economic news just keeps coming: the only way to save ourselves is defeating Obama

Everywhere we look we see that Barack Obama has made things worse.
For 34 straight months the percentage of Americans of working age who are actually working has been below 60%. Thats every single month Barack Obama has been in office. By comparison this percentage was never under under 61% under George Bush.
Under Obamas lack of leadership an additional 6 million people has fallen under the poverty level and another 14 million have been added to the Food Stamp rolls.
We are not buying things. The retail sales index has fallen for the past three months. History tells us when this happens we are either in a recession or very near to one. Of the 27 times this has happened since 1947 we have avoided a recession only twice.
The Manufacturing activity in the Northeast has fallen for three consecutive months. Overall American manufacturing contracted in June for the first time in nearly 3 years.
The Institute for Supply Managements manufacturing index fell to 49.7 in June a 3.8 point decline from May. When this index is below 50.0 it indicates a contraction in manufacturing activity.
Last month previously occupied homes sold at the slowest rate since last October.
Last week new unemployment claims surprised the experts AGAIN by rising to 386,000. Since these numbers are ALWAYS adjusted upward the following week who knows how high it will end up being. Numbers like these are not good signs for a recovery.
Because those who run companies are NOT surprised by what surprises the experts, just 23% of American businesses plan to hire in the next 6 months. This is down sharply from the 39% that planned to make such hires in the last survey taken in late March and early April

I disagree. The first order of business is NOT defeating Obama, but defeating the liberal “republicans” in our ranks. Marxist-enabling RINO’s must go before any progress can be made.
Oh, look, more ABO-ism.
Yeah! That'll show 'em!
Way to think, Sparky! Way to think!
Yup. Nothing will be fixed if “republicans” lack the courage to clean their own house.
End ALL LEFTIST POLITICS, everywhere that it exists in the world! That’s the ongoing long-term goal, worldwide. Successfully, making Mitt Romney, along with all other non-small government conservatives, worldwide, become small government conservative should be one of the ongoing goals, too. Successfully, electing small government conservatives to each and every level of political office, worldwide, and, successfully, encouraging all others in politics to become small government conservatives, worldwide, should, never, end. Never give up!
Since the election for President and available Congressional seats will be at the same time, I'm not sure how you do one before the other.
Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you were trying to say, but I don't know why we can't work on both at the same time.
The fact that you don’t see RINO inflitrators as the biggest problem in this country shows that you are part of the problem.
You just keep putting bandaids on that severed artery, though.
Not only are they not cleaning their own house, but they are spreading liberal filth around. Unconscionable.
I'm merely repudiating the title of the article. "The only way to save ourselves is defeating Obama" is a laughable falsehood, when we have Leftism-defending, commie Republicans that will simply do his bidding if he is defeated.
We CANNOT survive as a country with the current bunch of enabling surrender monkeys in charge. What has happened with the contempt charge properly leveled at Holder and his criminal gang? Nothing! This proper prosecution of a crime has evaporated faster than a puddle on a July sidewalk. THIS is what is killing our Republic.
Obama may be many things evil, but he doesn't deserve all the blame.
We have an occupant in the White House who posted a FORGED BIRTH CERTIFATE, FAILS E-VERIFY, and is using ANOTHER MAN”S SS#!
And...What do Republicans do about it? NOTHING!
What have so-called conservative talk show hosts and media done about it? NOTHING!
Wow! You are absolutely right. Our nation is in deep trouble not only from Obama but from so-called “conservatives” who do and say NOTHING!
Short term: Marxists in the Repbulican and Democrat parties. They must be defeated and replaced with conservatives. Primaries are very important elections.
Long term: The culture!
1) Build up a strong conservative media. Hopefully, someone will start 24/7 Internet news and entertainment sitesl. Do that and the alphabet channels will completely die and Fox may even be forced to give up its ridiculous “fair and balanced” agenda. ( How can one be fair and balance with evil?!)
2) We must encourage all Christians, Jews, and conservatives to remove their children from the government's socialist-entitlment K-12 schools! We must work to shut them down!
n these indoctrination camps children do and will learn to think and reason godlessly. They must just to cooperate in the godless classroom. And...Children who attend these schools risk learning to be comfortable with socialism and government compulsion. The learn that any voting mob powerful enough to give them, and force them to use, tuition-free schooling is powerful enough to give them **lots** of “free” stuff. ( FDR wasn't an accident. All it took was one to three generations of socialist-entitlment K-12 schooling.)
3) Try to get as many kids out of the Marxist colleges as possible. Charles Murray is right! We need certifiable qualifying exams for subjects from first grade to graduate school.
“We don’t want socialism, stupid.” New slogan for 2012.
