    3. As he jacked up everybody else's salaries in govt... within a few days of being sworn in and spent almost a trillion repaying cronies.

    4. A a new salaried CIO to cut spending? how about a 10% budget and salary cut...

    6. As he was wasting a trillion in stimulus, jacking govt salaries and spending 6 trillion.

    Let hope he does not have a chance to double down on this record.
  7. He Improved the Economy, Preventing a Bush Depression

    You're right, jem. This is a joke. Obama says one thing and does the opposite.

    He hasn't cut any government spending.

    He has increased government salaries and benefits.

    He hasn't reformed any government agency except that he did turn NASA into an Islamic outreach organization.

    He took nearly a trillion dollars and gave it out to democratic fund raisers and supporters.

    Where's the infrastructure that was promised with that money?

    Where's the jobs?

    Where's the help that small business needs?

    Instead they got over a trillion dollars in new regulatory costs.

    Where's the coal industry going? It's going out of business.

    How many electric power coal plants are scheduled to close? 200. How many replacements are coming online? ZERO!

    Where's the Keystone pipeline to move the Canadian oil to U.S. refineries? Vetoed by Obama.

    Where's that Canadian oil going now? To China.

    Etc. Etc. Etc. We don't need more of Obama's 'Hope and Change'. It's destroying America.
  9. Quite the list.


    Does anyone here personally know any one person who has benefitted by any of these accomplishments?
  10. Yes. Number 22.
