6 Months Left, Mr. President

  1. But we all know things that Obama says come with an expiration date. My guess is that this one will expire in 6 months and he'll began pleading for another 5 years to get the rise of the oceans to slow and our planet to heal; to end wars and secure our nation and restore our image as the last, best hope on Earth.

    6 Months Left, Mr. President
    By Doug Powers • July 9, 2011 12:38 PM

    It was just under two and a half years ago that President Obama said that if the economy hasn’t turned around within three years, he’d be a one-termer. White House Dossier reminds us that there are now just over six months to go until the clock runs out by Obama’s estimate.

    Yesterday’s jobs report not only indicates that the economy isn’t turning around, but it apparently can’t because the rudder was pawned off to China in return for temporary stimulus cash and Obamacare.

    This flashback from shortly after Obama took office two and a half years ago is a reminder that the administration has just over six months to turn it around… no pressure:

    Trivia questions:

    1) Who was Time Magazines man of the year in 2008?

    2) Who was Time Magazines man of the year in 1938?
  3. Really Lucrum??

    Lame, very very weak. Youre smarter than that. You are a pilot after all. ( Although it is easier than driving a car)
  4. When Obama took over, the economy was losing 750k jobs a month. The S&P500 was in the 800's.

    Yes, now the Federal Reserve has inflated all asset classes and created another stock/commodity bubble, but done absolutely ZERO for main street. And all the folks that caused the crash and were guilty of all sorts of fraud? None are in jail. Change.

    And those job numbers? Oh, the fictitious "birth/death" adjustment is responsible for 50% of the jobs "created" this year. Anyone can manipulate stats. Hope.

    RCG Trader is right..... everyone knows that hitler caused far less economic damage to the states than Obama has..... After all how many U.S. factories was Hitler responsible for the destruction of?

    It is simply unfair to hitler, to lump him in the same group as Obama.

    Hitler was responsible for one of the greatest economic turnarounds and subsequent growth eras in this country's history. He almost single handily ended the Great Depression in this country (with the ramp up of the great industrial war machine, that is).
  10. LOL! It's almost as if he took it personally...
