It is a sad day when the worst president in American History gets another four years in office only to do the EXACT same thing he has been doing since in 2009. What makes it more unbelievable is he told everyone exactly what he would do. He was going to raise taxes and increase spending, and continue to pit successful business people against their neighbors. It’s amazing that millions of “people” bought his deliberate lies in 2008 and then again in 2012.
I wonder however if the circumstances where different and it was a republican leader said he was going to raise taxes over a trillion bucks and said people “just stick to their religion and Guns”. Democrats have a seriously biased double standard when it comes to politics. What’s OK for them is definitely not OK for anyone else, especially a republican.
Let’s look at just four economic indicators so that we can examine this double standard rendered not only by democrats but the liberal media Mind zombies who continually cover for and support bad liberal politicians.
The National Debt and Annual Deficit: It’s true that under Bush 41 that the national debt and the annual deficits increased because of 9/11, Iraq and Afghanistan. Here is what the democrats don’t want you to know that they also APPROVED those actions and APPROVED that debt by passing bills through congress. It’s also true these actions approved by democrats caused the cumulative debt of the United States in the fiscal years 2001-2007 to be approximately $4.08 trillion.(1) It’s also true that then candidate obama called Bush 41 “Unpatriotic” for all that debt, yet he did not say the same for his fellow party members who were the one who also VOTED for SAME debt.
Why it is then now Obama does not rebuke himself for creating more debt in 4 years than Bush 41 did in 8 years? The White House’s Office of Management and Budget estimates that the debt held by the public will be about $12.8 trillion by the end of fiscal year 2013.(2) In addition, in the last three years obama has not even presented a budget to congress for the federal government. Lastly, obama promised to cut the deficit in half yet instead has actually increased the yearly spending deficit. Double Standard? You betcha!
Unemployment: Under Bush 41 the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate rose from 4.3% in January 2001, peaking at 6.3% in June 2003 and reaching a trough of 4.4% in March 2007. (3) After an economic slowdown, the rate rose again to 6.1% in August 2008 and up to 7.2% in December 2008.(3) The liberal media mind zombies and democrats scorned Bush 41 for this high rate but the unemployment rate spiked under Obama to 10% in October 2009, and spent the next 37 months (that’s 3 years) over 8%.(4) Contrary to obama’s talking heads and the media the employment conditions in the US is at its worse level in 30 years. The number of able bodied workers actively seeking work has dropped to 63%.(4) If Obamas focus was on jobs in 2008 why are there less people working or even looking than under Bush 41? Double Standard? Definitely!
Underemployed: Underemployment is the number of people working in a job that does not match their experience or skills. It’s also the number of people working less than full time, and it too is an important economic indicator of the workforce. At the end of Bush 41’s two terms the underemployment and unemployment combined rate was about 11 percent.(5) Under obama this combined rate jumped to 14.5 this translates to 23.2 million people as of October 2012.(6) So if the rate wasn’t good enough to get a republican elected in 2008 why not after millions MORE people out of work was it good enough for a democrat? Why then, also, did the media not focus on the issue perpetually like they did between 2001 and 2008? Yet, another double standard for democrats! WHY?
Food stamps: Another leading indicator of the state of our economy believe it or not is the number of receiving food stamps. When Bush 41 left office the number of people receiving food stamps was approximately 31.5 million.(7) Rather than increase wages and lower taxes on the ”middle class” obama passed over 20 new taxes on the middle class with obamacare,(8) AND most recently in 2012 began an advertising campaign in Mexico promoting the ILLEGAL use of food stamps by illegal immigrants in the U.S.(9) Furthermore, some recent reports from the U.S. Department of Agriculture which show that there are currently approximately 44.7 million Americans on food stamps.(10) So, if the number of people receiving food stamps was unacceptable in 2008 for a republican why then is it OK now for a democrat? Double Standard? YES!
In addition to these blatant double standards we must not forget to discuss obama’s 2012 Presidential Campaign. It should be more aptly named obama’s I know you are but what am I campaign. obama’s attempt to blame bush for HIS own failings, calling Romney a tax cheat, a murderer, big bird killer and a felon just to name a few where among the worst political dialogs I have ever seen. Yet, we all know if a republican were to have said even a fraction of these vile comments the democrats and the liberal media mind zombies would fain their disgust and promptly drum them out of office or into political oblivion. Anyone who disputes this fact is living in a fantasy dream world with unicorns and the tooth fairy.
Only a REAL AMERICAN would see through the lies and deceit of the Democrat party. In order see them all you have to do is take an unfiltered look at the democrat party, their history, their members and their beliefs. Not one person who claims to be Real American could bring themselves to vote for a person with the record that’s caused our country to decline in every aspect. If you don’t believe me just follow some of the links that I used as source material and you will find the real truth. All you have to do is look at all the obamacare caused layoffs and the stock market declines since the elections to see the direction our country is headed.
The following link will take you to an article I wrote in 2010 when I took a closer look at BOTH political parties and I found the information very enlightening I hope you will too:
It is up to REAL AMERICANS to stand up and fight the lies that are uttered by democrats and the media. Do your own research and learn about the issues yourself and do not rely on ANY party or liberal media mind zombie for your political discourse. Finally, you must vote to get rid of politicians who put party before the people, and who put their own struggle for power before those who elected them and before morality and ethics. Only then can REAL AMERICANS retake our government from those who would subvert it for their own purposes.
