Obama gave a major speech on the economy Wednesday. He talked about his many successes, blamed Republicans, and said he wants more “investments” and taxes. We just haven’t spent enough yet according to Obama. Oh, and the rich are evil and need to spread their wealth.
Obama complained about the phony scandals which include the AP and James Rosen scandals, the IRS scandal, Fast & Furious, and Benghazi [the only “phony” anything is his version of events].
Obama claimed that he has cut deficits in half, which is a bald-faced lie. He has added over a trillion dollars to the deficit each year he has been in office, far exceeding any deficit spending by Bush.
Carney claimed at his press briefing on July 22nd that Obama has created 7.2 million private sector jobs. Carney failed to mention that since February 2009, 9.5 million Americans have dropped out of the labor force and 90 million Americans are not working today!
For every job he says he created, 1.3 Americans have dropped out of the labor force.
He has put 15 million more Americans and illegal immigrants on food stamps. More than 2 Americans have been added to the food stamp rolls for every job he claims he created.
