Obama's Calculated Deception
American Spectator ^ | 8/1/2012 | Peter Ferrara

How the Obama campaign is trying to deceive you on the economy.

Calculated Deception. That is the central theme of the Obama campaign. Calculated Deception is the term I use for Obama's rhetorical practice of trying to take advantage of what he calculates the average person does not know, and his party-controlled, so-called mainstream media won't report. And that can be seen over and over in the Obama campaign.

Obscuring the Worst Recovery Since the Great Depression In Monday's Wall Street Journal, Edward Lazear, former Bush chairman of the President's Council of Economic Advisors, notes, "A graph titled 'Private Sector Job Creation' on the Obama-Biden campaign website… announces proudly that 4.4 million private sector jobs have been created over the past 28 months." But that factoid is meaningless out of any context, more like a pediatrician boasting to you that under his care your 16-year-old son has grown to 4 feet 4 inches. At the same point during the Reagan recovery, the economy had created 9.5 million new jobs.

Moreover, Lazear correctly adds, "there hasn't been one day during the entire Obama presidency when as many Americans were working as on the day President Bush left office." That's right, contrary to the Obama campaign's misleading claim of 4.4 million new jobs created, total jobs today are still half a million less than in January 2009 when Obama entered office.

Lazear continues, "Moreover, the unemployment rate, which we were told would not exceed 8% if we enacted Mr. Obama's stimulus package…has never fallen below 8% during his presidency. The rate has averaged 9.2% since February 2009."

What a monumental disaster this evil weasel is!

Obozo remembers when he first ate a dog? His startling confession that he had pushed a girl? Or his confession of how he would get through the day: "Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it…"

America's first drug-abusing president. What a memory. One would think that dipping back some 50 years ago to Mitt Romney's alleged and unproven behavior in …yes, high school…would now seem to be less than a stellar idea to Team Obama and their supporters in the media.

This imbecile and his 850 assorted sodomite staffers need to be beaten good and proper. After being expelled from the White Hut the Congress needs to retroactively amend the compensation and benefit plan for this asshat that has injured this nation so severely that it'll take a decade or so to recover.

I’m not sure 0bama is actually deceiving anyone, except the morons who comprise his core constituency. I figured the bastard out when he first appeared on the scene, and his instant rise is one reason I think that there is a good chance he is the antiCHRIST, along with his pure evil nature.
