By every economic measure, we are better off now than we were when I took office. You wouldnt know it, but we are, the president said Friday.
Thats right, the president the president of the United States, mind you says Americans are better off, they just dont know it.
That is the height to which the president has raised his level of mendacity. He has the sheer audacity to tell Americans that he has successfully turned the economy around, that things are all good, but that there are no real quantifiable indicators by which they could ever know that.
In fact, Mr. Obama says Americans have never had it so good.
Over the past 51 months, our businesses have created 9.4 million new jobs, he said at a feel-good stop in Minnesota. Our housing market is rebounding. Our auto industry is booming. Our manufacturing sector is adding jobs for the first time since the 1990s. Weve made our tax code fairer. Weve cut our deficits by more than half. More than 8 million Americans have signed up for private insurance plans through the Affordable Care Act.
Of course, as usual with the president, none of that is true. In 2007, there were 146.6 million Americans employed. Last month, there were 145.7 million people in the workforce. But its all worse than that. The labor force participation rate dropped more than 3 percentage points, which equals nearly 8 million people. Now, just 62.8 percent of working-age Americans hold jobs, a dismal number thats the lowest in 35 years....

He’s right about one thing, we wouldn’t know it.
There had to be something mentally wrong with this guy. I’ve known some liars in my life (ex wife), but this guy will say ANYTHING with a straight face.
The king is braindead. I think he may have “evolved” too much over his “gay marriage” fiasco.
He seems to be the only person who knows it. Probably because he now has more money than he ever thought possible. How’s that hope and change thingy going people?
Our, our, our, our, we, we, we and he did it all himself too.
With an ego like that it’s a wonder he’s not the Madhi.
If Obama’s lips move, he’s lying!
A 3% economy contraction sails over this moron’s head.
0bummer’s nose is now 1/4 inch longer.
Lies are the bread and butter of socialist liars like Obama.
Delusional. Can’t a crew take over a ship when the captain goes whacka? I’m not talking Cain Mutiny crazy but delusional crazy.
Us peasants never know what’s good for us.
If so, it’s the first thing he’s ever been the first to know. Normally, even stuff that happens in the White House, he only finds out about when he reads about it in the paper.
Wrap in the fact that only Michelle knows how parents should feed their children...and, voila! We have the most brilliant couple in the world living in the White House.
We’re so lucky to have them...
Don’t question the King.
After all, he is graciously letting us dwell on his Land and we are better off for it.
Little bath house barry bastard boy’s mendacity reminds me of someone cutting someone else’s head off while telling them they will be better off because their airway will be less obstructed.
Pay no attention to all those boarded up downtown businesses. And you only THINK food prices are twice as high as they were in 2009
