CNN right now is trying to make the case you ARE better off now than 4 years ago!
CNN | 9/3/

No real link, just what the network is putting on...two women pointing at one of those big electronic screens....showing all sorts of statistics "proving" how the economy is doing just FINE under Obamugabe!

Did anyone else see that joke of journalism?? They just went to commercials...but it was a pathetic blatant attempt to pump (or pimp, maybe) for Obamugabe.

I saw it in passing while doing laundry and thought their points in defense of Obama were rather weak.

No one buying groceries, gas, or stuck in a job they cannot afford to leave or looking for work will believe the statistics. All it does is set CNN to follow Obama down the toilet.

I remember Clint in his RNC speech saying that 24 million Americans are unemployed, and it is factual.

So where are those awesome powerpoint presentations to show that? These 2 are blabbering idiots and yes, I saw the segment at the gym here in L.A. Even the libtards I work out with were shaking their heads.

Any FReepers here who are better off than they were four years ago?

CNN has lost their grip on reality. People who live in air conditioned offices, thinking sh*t up all day long really haven't got a clue about what is going on out here where the rubber meets the road.

FOX has the disgraced former New Mexico governor, Bill Richardson on singing about the wonders of Obama. I thought Richardson was in prison.

So is PMSNBC.

They are comparing the unemployment rate of '09 to present and stating THAT as a worthy change....

I'm almost looking forward to watching the convention to see the head socialist stumble over themselves trying to sound like they are effective lawmakers.

By the end of the convention, the CNN crew will be dancing on their desk and singing “Happy Days Are Here Again.”

They are doing their best to put life-like makeup on this stinking corpse of an economy and their political party.

Comrades! The latest statistics show great increases in industrial production. By 2025 all Citizens will be able to take high speed rail from Sacramento to Bakersfield. But only if they decide not to make it a week long trip in their GM Volt or think they can afford $6.00/litre petrol. Remember that when W. Bush was running the economy no one could drive a GM Volt or ride in high speed rail. Now, these are promised to all!

This just in, exciting news from the Bureau of Agricultural Statistics! Sugar beet harvests this year are expected to surpass quotas once again! Citizens should be receiving coupons for a half kilogram of sugar by the time this increased harvest hits the factories in December or January! Please don't expect to see anything before November!

Yes, comrade, I remember in the days of Ronald Reagan, only rich capitalists could afford sugar for their tea, the proletariat had to drink weak tea without sugar, but under Chairman Obama strong tea and two lumps of sugar are promised to all!

I hate when anyone quotes the 8.x percent unemployment rate because they are not mentioning how the workforce has SHRUNK! That rate is total BS, if you count the people who were in the workforce in 2008 it is now about 10% or 11%!

Up is down and down is up to these stupid libtards.

Let me review my checklist.

401K still down from 2008— check
Salary still not caught up to 10% pay cut in 2009 —check
Mortgage slightly underwater from 2008 — check
Every thing more expensive — check

ABO — R&R for hopefully a better future because it sure isn’t going to happen with 0bama.

If you look at it from the perspective of the American leech, they ARE better off....more booty - EITC,
Advanced EITC payments, FICA 2% kickback (same benefits), TANF (welfare) increased and NO WORK REQUIREMENT now, ObamaPhone, rent assistance (Section 8), utilities assistance, education assistance (no collateral/debt government backed college loans), ObamaCare, WICS, SNAP and all the other dozens of leech programs...

A virtual cornucopia of benefits costing nothing but a single (well, we know how that ends up) vote.

That's also a very good point. Another part of the Obama legacy. He has crushed the dreams of millions; they have just given up and quit trying.

Another reason to: Encourage all of your Democrat friends to get out and vote on November 7th, the stakes are high.

I don’t know how this can do anything but make CNN look stupid to anyone living in the real world.

This year with our business we have had at least double the number of people making payments instead of paying their full bill. We’ve had our first (and last) bounced check. We’ve had our first experience being listed in a bankruptcy filing. We usually have two or three unpaid customer invoices at one time, we now have a 1” stack of them. We’ve had to file more liens this year than the entire time we’ve been in business. We’ve had more people pay by credit card than ever before.

It’s ugly out there and everyone else seems to know it.

The unemployment numbers are misleading. The unemployment rate only leaped above 7% in the final two months of Bush's presidency due to the 2008 financial crisis which was caused by the democrats, e.g. Clinton, Dodd, Frank.

The average unemployment rate during Bush's 8 years was 5.2%. In comparison that average was 5.1% during Clinton's 8 years. Funny how the dems have succeeded in making the Clinton years look better than the Bush years when they were about the same from an unemployment standpoint.

The average unemployment rate during Obama's 'reign' is 9.1 (Aug/2012). In comparison the average unemployment rate during Carter was 7.6%.

But here is a killer statement -- as of June, 2012 "the unemployment rate in all 41 months of Obama’s presidency has been higher than that of any single month in President Bush’s 8 years in office." That is an incredible statistic I don't hear this mentioned much.

Happy Labor Day, Barack!

The more they try to sell that crap, the more people will stop and think about the changes. Rise in food prices, less jobs, etc.

I hope they try to sell that crap every day.

They believe they can “intellectualize” this and convince people. People already know how much of the paycheck is left over after basics are paid and it is going down.

The more they try to talk this up, the more people are going to spend time thinking about it.

I love it! I hope they do it every day. Not only will people think about their pocketbook, they will start to realize how idiotic it is to listen to these fools.

If CNN says obama is a success then obama is a success.

read the short short short book “The Medium is the Massage” (sic)


perhaps we should freepmail them with historical images of the “FORWARD” reference. NONphotoshopped images throughout history of communists and dictators use of “forward” as a slogan.

Every time the Dems try to say “the policies that got us here”, remind them that between 2003-2006 (the year Dems took over Congress), the Bush administration averaged 151,650 jobs per month. This is from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Don’t let them get away with selective memories. They created the Bush mythology, now they’re trying to use it as a talking point.

Yep. Every time they throw some vague “Bush was terrible”, or “Republicans want to cut Medicare, Social Security” or whatever they say; ask them for their specific solution and facts.
Just keep drilling back with fact based requests.

Of course that means we need know these things ourselves!
