The last jobs report to come out before the election shows that after a too small for comfort drop in the unemployment rate last month, this month it is back up. to 7.9% and the real unemployment rate is at 14.6%. This officially makes this the slowest recovery from any recession in our nation’s history.
No matter how one looks at it, the Obama economic policies are not working. The President has tried to claim that we are moving in the right direction, but this latest report makes that claim as ludicrous as his claim that he knew nothing about what was going on in Benghazi.
Beyond President Obama’s policies though are the reality we are facing.
These latest jobs reports do not reflect the loss of jobs and wages that have taken place since the beginning of the week when Hurricane Sandy decimated many parts of the North East. Admittedly President Obama had nothing to do with the still unfolding economic effects of Hurricane Sandy, but when that natural disaster is combined with the cumulative effects of the disastrous Obama economic policies, we find ourselves facing depressing conditions for millions of Americans who are finding things in America getting worse, not better.
For liberals, Barack Obama was once hailed as a messianic political figure who practically walked on water. Four years later, our nation remains under water. Recently he visited storm ravaged New Jersey in an attempt to “act” presidential and show us that he was here for us. As a New Jersey resident, I am still trying to figure out what good that PR stunt did for my fellow suffering New Jerseyans. And as we try to figure that one out, we get these latest jobless figures and are left wondering what possible good this President has done for our nation and its economy during the last four years.
America has not reelected a President who commanded over unemployment as high as the ones we currently have since President Franklin Delano Roosevelt during the Great Depression. History could of course repeat itself on November 6th, but given the dismal record of this President, Americans must ask themselves this. Is there any reason to prolong the depressing economic condition that President Obama is putting us through with his big government, tax and spend, deficit busting policies?
The answer is no. After four years it is clear that not only does President Obama not walk on water, the liberal emperor that he is, has no clothes and under his economic policies, Americans can’t afford to buy their own clothes. Like Hurricane Sandy, President obama needs to go…. quickly
