Listening to President Obama speak to the Congressional Black Caucus about his past 32 months in office, two bizarre facts become apparent. First, Obama seems to believe that his policies and efforts have been successful. Second, Obama thinks we need to continue down the same path, that he "stood up for a different vision and did what was right. The future rewards those who press on."
Sadly, it would seem that our President is not merely wrong, but delusional. Lets take a look at what Obamas policies have actually produced.

By any measure, President Obamas economic policies and leadership have produced an unambiguous tale of woe. Not once has a single Obama policy produced the anticipated or promised benefits. Moreover, these many policies have made existing problems much worse.
During Obama's presidency, Americans have lost a collective $8 trillion in national wealth. Even now, his policies continue to crush business development, rob the prudent of their savings, and continue the awful trend of blaming others for his own inexperience and his policy mistakes. Perhaps the saddest fact of all is that President Obama believes that these failures represent success.
Government campaign of dependence. Another Alynski/cloward piven program, overwhelm the system into collapse.
I think they meant the number of people in the universe on Foodstamps....
Amen.....and the writer is wrong...it’s WORKING just as Obama planned it....TOTAL COLLAPSE.
Yes but he is a clean, articulate negro with a nice smile.
Quite a record!
Lurita, you need an editor.
And he being identified with the “occupiers” who can’t produce a lot of new votes for him. The whole thing is a puffball, including Obama.
Bump for later
Ah, that explains why I see so many flying saucers parked at the Shop-Rite.
Trillion is the new billion.
Yeah, he is insane. He is like the lotto players who have played the same number for 10 years and know they should stop, but are afraid the moment they do, that number will then come up.
That's the number of "people" signed up for foodstamps.
Link says 45.8 million. Was a typo but is understandable with this administration. They throw trillions around like it was nothing.
Yeah I saw that too - we must have a LOT of illegals in the USA lol
Like Zeus he grabbed the lightning ... or something like that according to Biden
Depends upon what his objective was/is. If it was to destroy America, he HAS succeeded.
Underlying the Machiavellian plotting of the Clowards, Pivens, Alinskys, Ayers, etc. is that they actually believe in this pathetic socialist/Marxist tripe.
don’t tell Obama what comes after trillion...
If, by "The future rewards those who press on", you mean "The future rewards those who help elect others to pick the taxpayers' pockets and divvy the money up accordingly".
Obama is a bigger disaster for this country than was 9/11. Not even close.
Thanks I need this to inform die-hard Obuggery hangers on.
Have to be careful....
The Hussein Heads at Snopes could put this up as is and call the whole thing false to support their messiah.
The Peas of Sh!t Snopes mill puts out around 300 Hussein-lovin’ articles A DAY for their hero.
LOL Post of the day.
Yeah, sent tingled all up my leg.
Yes. Yes he has.
