How Hath Obama Failed? Let Us Count the Ways

The FAIL is strong in this One.


  1. Today there are 88 million working age Americans that are not employed and that are not looking for employment.  A record surpassing that of all other Presidents since such figures have been recorded.
  2. When Barack Obama was elected, the percentage of unemployed Americans who had been out of work for more than 52 weeks was less than 15%.  Today, it is above 30%.
  3. There are 1.2 million fewer jobs in America today than there were when Obama was inaugurated.
  4. On the day Obama was sworn into office, the number of “long-term unemployed workers” in the United States was approximately 2.6 million.  Today, that number is 5.6 million.
  5. The average duration of unemployment in the United States currently stands at an all-time record high.
  6. Over the course to date of the Obama administration worker health insurance costs have climbed by 23%.
  7. During Obama’s tenure as president the average price of a gallon of gasoline in the United States has increased by 90 percent.
  8. Since Obama took the oath of office home values in the United States have declined by 13 percent.
  9. New home sales in the U.S. set a brand new all-time record low in 2009, they set a brand new all-time record low again in 2010, and they set yet another all-time record low once again during 2011. Quite the record there, Mister Obama.
  10. The number of Americans living in ‘poverty’ has risen by more than 6 million under the economic policies of Obama.
  11. Obama’s Presidenty has witnessed the number of Americans on food stamps increase from 32 million to 46 million.
  12. The amount of tax payer money that the federal government gives directly to Americans has increased by 32 percent since the advent of the Obama Administration.
  13. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the percentage of Americans living in “extreme poverty” has reached an all-time high during Obama’s time in office.
  14. When Barack Obama was inaugurated, an ounce of gold was trading for about $850.  Today an ounce of gold trades at more than $1700 an ounce.
  15. The size of the U.S. national debt (total owed vice current shortfall) has balooned by 44 percent since Obama took his oath of office.
  16. During Obama’s first two years in the Oval Office (with a Congress controlled by his party), the U.S. government added more to the U.S. national debt than the first 100 U.S. Congresses combined.
  17. During the Obama administration, the U.S. government accumulated more debt than it did from the time George Washington took office to the time that George H. W. Bush left office.
  18. The U.S. national debt has been increasing by an average of more than 4 billion dollars per day since the beginning of the Obama administration.

How many more reasons do you need to send this bozo back home?

Did that Priest just flip Obama off?

    Well Rodney, his supporters have said that The Chosen One’s reign would be “historic” and “unprecedented”.

    • Ain’t THAT the flippin’ truth…

    When can we expect the unabridged version?

  • As a point on the “not looking for work” or “discouraged workers,” please remember there is NO attempt to discover how many actually ARE still looking for work.  Once government benefits expire, the Labor Department just removes them from the workforce.  It makes the unemployment rate look better, but has no bearing on who is or isn’t looking for work.

    It’s been done this way for decades – they only began recording the number of “discouraged” workers in the ’80s, but once UE benefits run out, you’re out of the work force on paper.

    This is what the repub candidates should be talking about, all the time.
    This is what the RNC should be running as a nation-wide commercial, over and over again.

    What you see as a bug some people see as a feature.

    Of course some people are enemies of this country.

    Hey, I just realized – this thread has been up for a day, but no sightings of a troll to tell us how racist we are for daring to criticize the “Dark-Skinned One”.   🙂
