  1. Federal limo fleet increased by 73% under Obama administration

    The number of limousines owned by the U.S. government increased by 73 percent during the first two years of the Obama administration, according to a new report by iWatch news.

    An analysis of General Services Administration data reveals the federal fleet has increased from 238 limos in 2008---the last year of the Bush Administration--- to 412 limos in 2010. Much of the increase was recorded in the State Department under Hillary Clinton.

    For its part, the Obama administration said the increased number of limousines in the federal fleet reflects "an enhanced effort to protect diplomats and other government officials in a dangerous world."

    Just last week, President Obama issued a directive stating that by 2015 all vehicles purchased by the government must be "alternative fuel vehicles" such as hybrids and electric cars.

    Check out this set of statistics!!

    The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked
    in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet.
    You know what the private business sector is??? A real-life business, not a
    government job. Here are the percentages:

    > T. Roosevelt..........38%
    > Taft.......................40%
    > Wilson ..................52%
    > Harding................49%
    > Coolidge............... 48%
    > Hoover.................42%
    > F. Roosevelt.........50%
    > Truman................50%
    > Eisenhower..........57%
    > Kennedy...............30%
    > Johnson...............47%
    > Nixon....................53%
    > Ford.......................42%
    > Carter....................32%
    > Reagan..................56%
    > GH Bush............. 51%
    > Clinton ..............39%
    > GW Bush.............55%

    > And the winner is:

    > Obama............... 8%

    This helps to explain the incompetence of this administration: only 8% of them have ever worked in private business!

    That's right! Only eight percent---the least, by far, of the last 19 presidents! And these people are trying to tell our big corporations how to run their business? They know what's best for GM, Chrysler, Wall Street, and you and me?

    How can the president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he's never worked for one? Or about jobs when he has never really had one? And when it's the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers? They've spent most of their time in academia,
    government and/or non-profit jobs or as "community organizers." They should have been in an employment line.

    We'll NEVER see these facts in the main stream media.
