‘Even Obama Is Doing Worse Under President Obama’

April 27, 2012 by  

Thanks for the laugh, Jay. Jay Leno cracked me up last week with this observation in his opening monologue: “President Obama released his tax returns. It turns out he made $900,000 less in 2011 than he did in 2010. You know what that means? Even Obama is doing worse under President Obama.”

Fudging the unemployment numbers. Barack Obama’s supporters have been bragging that the unemployment rate dropped to 8.2 percent in March. But a closer look at the numbers reveals that only 120,000 new jobs were created last month – 58 percent fewer than experts had predicted. The reason the unemployment rate dropped is that 164,000 discouraged Americans quit looking for work at all. Heck, if every unemployed person would stop looking for work, the unemployment rate would drop to 0.

Lost luggage drops dramatically. Here’s good news for frequent flyers: Your luggage is a lot more likely nowadays to arrive at your final destination when you do. SITA, a Swiss airline consulting firm, says the rate of mishandled bags has fallen from 18.88 per 1,000 passengers in 2007 to just 8.99 last year: a 52.4 percent decline. And most bags that go astray are found and delivered within 48 hours. It’s no surprise that the more connections you have, the more likely that you and your luggage will get separated.

Talk about bias in the media. Media Matters for America, the leftwing organization funded by George Soros, says it was formed to oppose the “biased” national media. And just what biases will it counter? The group’s application for tax-exempt status read: “It is common for news and commentary by the press to present viewpoints that tend to overly promote corporate interests, the rights of the wealthy, and a conservative, Christian-influenced ideology.” Right. Is there anyone anywhere who actually believes the national media are biased in favor of free enterprise and “conservative, Christian-influenced” values?

    We are still waiting to see Romney’s returns.He is too embarrassed apparently to publicise them as all candidates have in the past.His own father brought out ten years worth of returns.Romney just has too many secrets to be a viable candidate.He also has a secret to fix the economy, end the afghan war, a reasonable way to improve his tax exemptions, end Medicare & Medicaid etc.Perhaps that is the way of the Mormons with their secret society like the Bushes with their Skull and Crossbones.Just sayin.

    • Kevin

      You honestly think Romney has more secrets than Obama, even after 3 1/2 years no one really knows him. I would rather see Obamas college transcripts than Mitt tax returns. Keep drinking the kool-aid, it makes everything warm and fuzzy!

      • Combat seabee

        You got that $h.t right!!

      • jopa

        Kevin;Thank you for your honesty as to how the Kool- aid makes you feel all warm and fuzzy.However it does seem to impair your reason for thought.

    • momo

      John Kerry was in the Skull and Crossbones too! I would like to see Obama’s college transcripts, why so hush hush?

      • William West

        obama is the first president to seal all of his records, it would be very interesting to see his education records

    The only Cristian canidate is ………………RON PAUL
    The only alternative to the status quo is RON PAUL

    • Vicki

      Don’t forget that Ron Paul is the only candidate who has a 25+ year recorded history of honoring his oath to support and defend the Supreme law of THIS land. The US Constitution.

        vicki – jopa, flashman are leftist demos – what else would one expect from those who expect everything to be done for them – by the government and the people that actually are not lazy and do work… :)

      • vicki

        Libertytrain. I am fully aware of their nature. They could even be the same person. :) Maybe they are.

        I do enjoy offering proof of their nature to the people who come here to learn about liberty.

      • Libertytrain

        I know you are aware – I’m not sure they are – perhaps they are fellow employees in the same damp basement of the white house.

  • Ted Crawford

    The strong odds are that Obamas income didn’t fall by nearly as much as is indicated by his returns. Instead he probably, as would any commomsense taxpayer, structured his returns to the best advantage of his bottomline, The fact that he does this isn’t a problem. The problem is that he does this while publicly demonizing others who do the same. It simply points out his Progressive hypocrisy! Of course to refer to someone as a Progressive Hypocrite, is to repeat yourself, using a double negative!

    • momo

      Yeah, and he just could be a dumb a$$!

      • Combat seabee

        Could be a dumb ass? Hey, I think that he has proven that over and over.

    • Honestly

      Obama’s income may have dropped, but the taxpayers are paying for every little thing anyway so why does he need an income. It seems that we are even paying for his campaign.

    • jopa

      vicki;Did you see what libertytrain called you.She called you a leftist Demo.

      • Vicki

        Really? Where? Show me. Oh wait. I forgot you don’t know how. Never mind.

      • Libertytrain

        Vicki – that jopa character must have reading comprehension problems as well – :)

    He is an IDIOT,if hes losing money,why doesnt he go back to Chicago,(and stay there)where his buddies can and will give him a pay raise….

    Osama bin laden is dead and GM is alive.

    • Vicki

      Osama bin laden is dead? Really? Where’s the body? Couldn’t even get past the GJ without a body.

    • William West

      The order to find OBL and kill him was issued by President Bush and GM is not alive and well, they are losing market share

      By a Navy Seal Team, and a buy out by oblowhole , hence, Government Motors,which gave every union member a $6,000.00 bonus on your dime!
      Just recently as a power play and payback, the union has capped as at present all of G.M.’s Management pay!
      Do you want to know why G.M. actually went under? NOt mis management, but union demands. There were 6,000 something pages in the UAW contract that dealt eith items that any supervisor, if done, any, ANY, union member could shut down the production line, even if it didn’t actually happen, the infraction that is, but just being percieved, the line would be shut down. Now you know why American cars are sh9t. After the bailout, Chrysler line workers were video taped smoking pot and drinking beer on the lunch breaks, want to by a chrysler?

        More lies.Smoking pot and drinking beer on lunch breaks.Prove it.

        It took me about 10 seconds to find many articles about it.

        Jopa the video was here on PL months ago – gosh – you’re on daily, you think you would have seen it.

    When no candidate speaks of ending our extermination by chlorination, fluoridation, bromination or diet soda and none speak of ending subsidies for milk, sugar, tbacco or wars, isn’t it suicidal to vote for any of them?

    • Combat seabee

      Go hug a tree!

      • s c

        Combat seabee, utopians should indeed go hug a tree. Beyond that, they should use a condom so in the event that they get overly ‘involved,’ no one will have to contact the EPA to “terminate” the romance. Besides, splinters hurt, if you get my drift.

    • Combat seabee

      I actually don’t think that there are subsidies for tobacco anymore! I may be wrong, but in the last 10 yrs. the climate has politically been definitely Anti- tobacco!

      • jopa

        On the surface it looks as though we are all anti tobacco however they are making billions from overseas where there is no anti tobacco campaign and they have lobbiests in DC to get a few of your tax dollars also.

  • Neil

    On the advice of the Secretary of Treasury, Obama adopted the use of Turbo Tax for his 2011 returns.

    • Combat seabee

      What would Geithner know about paying taxes. He, “Forgot” to pay his for how many years? How the eff do you forget to pay taxes. A 1st grader knows taxes are paid on April 15th! Such a lying sack of s&^T he is, but then again, he takes his lead from his boss!!!

      • Stuart C. Ashley

        Federal Government Tobacco Farm Subsidies:
        2008 $210,697,776
        2009 $202,937,236
        2010 $194,435,671
        2010 is the last data available, but there is no reason to believe that the program has terminated.

    • jopa

      Great advice.I use it also so whats your point?

  • Gang Buster 2012

    maybe the(900,000 dollars ) money went to help pay for the party he, and his secret service had a few weeks ago.(WHORES Included.).

    • Melody

      Obama is not interested in female whores…only male whores!!!!

      • jopa

        And he got those guys.Some resigned, others were fired and some reprimanded.The females were just doing a job and not under the jurisdiction of the United States.
