Obama:

Our policies of Hope and Change are paying off. Domestically are trade balance is perfect.

My fellow Americans, we are experiencing a growth rate unparalleled since the end of WWII.

The economy has never been better. More and more jobs are being added with each passing day.

We have become more energy reliant.

As a nation, we are more united for a common purpose than at anytime since WWII.

African Americans and whites have the best race relations since the Civil War.

Crime has bottomed out and the average American can afford to buy a house and educate his kids at Universities.

On the Foreign policy front, we have an unsurpassed power and strength not seen since 1945.

Nations around the world envy our stability, income and soft power projection.

We have reversed the embarrassing war policies of my predecessor.

Nations respect and look up to us and know they can count on us when the going gets tough.

US credibility is at an apex.

We have kept the Russians and Chinese in check and they are at our mercy.

In short, my fellow Americans the nation, her people and this Presidency is the best in US and world history and I, sit at the top of the heap.

So, thank you for giving me your trust.

God, I mean Barak Obama bless America, good night and be rest assured, that I know what the heck I am doing...

G’night.

Too much “our” and “we” early on. Not the narcissist’s style.

He’s probably on the line right now talking to Putin, asking him what to say and do to “straighten out the economic mess he inherited.”

Putin will tell him to lower interest rates to home buyers to -5%, with -20% down. This will stimulate the economy.

obama will give the plan a thumbs us and announce it tonight.

He’ll say

It’s Bush’s fault
Let me be clear
Focus like a laser beam
The rich must pay their fair share

I’m sure there’s a few dozen more we’ve heard time after time

Putin replies...."just try a 13% flat tax like we have"

So, the food stamp president, the guy ultimately responsible for the destruction of the 40 hour work week, is going to talk about economic growth.

I heard a news bit on the radio this morning complaining about how Summers got criticism from Democrats because of how he always lets you know that he is the smartest person in any room. That’s competition that Obama simply cannot have.

It’s depressing to know 49% approve of this muslime-marxist.

He didn’t get the rave reviews and adoration he usually gets from the media/Leftists on his Syria speech, so he’s going to try again on another subject he lies about with impunity. Since it’s a domestic matter, maybe Putin won’t embarrass him this time.

He’s going to tell all the money and job deprived people that they aren’t money and job deprived, and they’re going to not listen.

But they will hear the spin on comedy shows, reality shows, and sitcoms. And they will accept that this is prosperity.

The socialists desperately need an older generation that knows better, that knows this is poverty, to die off. Then they can make everybody think that everyone always has been a serf.

In marking the five-year anniversary of this recession, hopefully someone will point out to him that unemployment is higher today in his fifth year as President than it was at this time five years ago (6.1 %).

At this time in 2008, there were 145 million people in this country who had jobs. Today, there are 144 million people who have jobs. So after 56 months in office and trillions of dollars in so-called 'stimulus' spent, we have one million less people employed. That's quite the legacy.

Six million people who WERE in the workforce have dropped out of the workforce. They can’t find jobs and eventually gave up trying. I don’t know how you arrive at your number of only one million fewer working than in ‘08.

WHY?

And why is this is Breaking News? He's already done this a billion times. This is trite, old news. There's nothing new on the economy he'll share with us.

The hit to his poll numbers from the Syria bungling must be more serious than we’ve been told.

The labor force is 800K larger now too. Based on those numbers alone any fool can see the unemployment rate has gone up. Note, you should also look at underemployment...

On these numbers alone, darned near 2 million MORE people are out of work that are in the labor force.
