Everything Obama doesn’t want to talk about at Northwestern University today

President Obama is heading to Northwestern University to make his best attempt to change the subject — for the umpteenth time he wants to talk about the economy. Obama will tout “private sector job growth” which sadly is mostly part-time — and we need 400,000 or more private sector jobs to be created to sustain this failing economy.

Obama was asked Ronald Reagan’s seminal question on 60 Minutes this past Sunday, “are you better off than you were six years ago?” In his deluded brain he responded that the American people are. The numbers show something different.

We are at an all-time low for the workforce participation rate. Poverty has increased and food stamp recipients are up from 31 million to 47 million. Home ownership is down and gas prices are still high compared to the $1.89 when he came into office.

The Federal Reserve holds the bulk of our national debt — which under Obama has grown from $10.67 trillion to $17.5 trillion — and their insidious practice of printing money to sustain our economy only means we have mini0inflation — just go to the grocery store if you don’t believe me.

So off goes Obama to speak — at the same university that wants to unionize college football athletes — to talk more about minimum wage, more government spending, and pay equality — hardly free market economic growth policies, just more progressive socialist political soundbites.

The discussion has to be about tax, regulatory, government, and monetary reforms that reignite a free market economic explosion — instead we have a government spending-driven economy. Instead of Obama attacking private sector business with increased taxation and regulations, forcing more to escape his socialist economic tyranny, he should advance reforms that enable the captains of industry to produce and manufacture more right here.

Thank God we have energy visionaries who are creating and expanding our oil and natural gas production on state and private lands allowing gas prices to drop. That is what happens when you allow the private sector to use its investment, innovation, and ingenuity – even though the Obama administration’s EPA and BLM are doing everything they can to defeat these efforts.

Things like a flat tax, removing the 50-employee barrier from Obamacare — as well as the employer mandate. Obama exploded our deficits only to now claim he has cut them in half, but they’re still astronomically high. We must stop quantitative easing, because we are developing an artificial and false economy and this next bubble isn’t going to just burst, it’ll be a nuclear explosion.

Obama doesn’t want to talk about not attending his intel briefs, the rise of ISIS and Islamic fascism and jihadism, the situation in Yemen and the possible evacuation of our embassy, the Hong Kong protests, the resignation of his Secret Service Director, an American with Ebola, the beheading of an American, American children dying and becoming paralyzed by some “mysterious respiratory illness,” U.S. Marine SGT Andrew Tahmooressi, U.S. Army SGT Bowe Bergdahl, the decimation of our U.S. Military, the un-Constitutional dispersion of illegal immigrants throughout our Republic — did I miss anything?

No B. Hussein, we’re not better off than we were six years ago — and sadly we still have two more years of you. Go ahead and make your speech at Northwestern University, because everyone other than your kool-aid drinking progressive socialist acolytes ain’t listening to your lies anymore.

Also, the IRS scandal, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the scam global warming and the fact that he is Oblammer in Chief and has only taken credit for “one” thing….Bin Ladin and even that was in the works prior to him taking office.

IRS scandal DEBUNKED, Benghazi…DEBUNKED! Think about it…you people are getting promises that are not being kept but yet you keep accepting the next promise! Remember this famous promise….”WE WILL REPEAL OBAMACARE”?? You people are simple! Or this one….MITT WILL WIN IN A LANDSLIDE!! HAHAHAHAHHAHAHHA SIMPLE!!

LOL, in what world are you living in? None of these have been as you say “debunked” just the opposite in that more and more proof is coming out the Democrats are responsible for all of them and Obama is at the head of the class (of which he has none). Democrats are responsible for ISIS threat, illegals bringing in diseases, terrorists crossing our borders, dead people voting, economy, debt, credit rating down for the first time in history, Obama is the laughing stock of the world and those people can’t believe Americans were dumb enough to reelect him, guess… Read more »

Nothing due to obstruction. Earl, I think your hard on for LTC West doesn’t allow you to think objectively.

SO now every problem that you have gotten ZERO results for is because of OBSTRUCTION?? Lets see…Benghazi (OBSTRUCTION) Fast and whatever (OBSTRUCTION) it makes NO SENSE!! Let try this one. All of those investigations were for POLITICAL PURPOSES only….they knew there was no THERE there but they insisted on wasting TAXPAYER money for their political gain. This is why there were soooo many REPEAL OBAMACARE VOTES! Think about it….they didn’t have the senate so HOW IN THE WORLD WOULD IT GET REPEALED??/ Waste of TAXPAYER MONEY at its finest! So the next time you hear one of these REPUBLICAN LOONS… Read more »

Hard to get results when all this administration does is obfuscate, subterfuge, and duplicity….One of Obama favorite sayings, if you have nothing to hide just put it out there for everyone to see… Glad you think this bunghole is doing a good job, you are the minority.. Executive privlidge for fast and Furious.. Lol, WHY, if there is nothing to hide… Criminals from the top down…

“Thank God we have energy visionaries who are creating and expanding our oil and natural gas production on state and private lands allowing gas prices to drop.” No. No. No. The people drilling oil and gas wells don’t want gasoline prices to drop. Fracking costs money, and if the value of oil goes too low then it is no longer cost effective. This is the most basic economics there is and it’s embarrassing how many people don’t understand it. And while we’re at it, this is a graph of the labor force participation rate. http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS11300000 You can adjust the scale… Read more »

Look up what kind of jobs are out there Obamite. Part time is now the new full time. We are now a workforce comprised primarily of service and retail workers. And people are listening to the Moron-In-Chief. They are simply rejecting his crap. Now go back to the Kos for further instructions. And fracking IS expanding our oil production. Now it may not be reflected at the pump but it makes us far less dependent on foreign oil. And what do the Boomers have to do with this?

Paul Sheridan
Guest
What do the boomers have to do with this? Exactly what I said in my post. The labor force participation rate is primarily a function of demographics and only slightly a function of the economy. You can blame Obama for the economy but you can’t blame him for demographics. Yes, fracking is expanding our oil and gas production. But it is only cost effective while oil prices are high. Therefore it will never lower gasoline prices below a certain point. Basically, domestic oil production can probably keep gasoline from going over $5 a gallon for a while but even that… Read more »

[[ The labor force participation rate is primarily a function of demographics and only slightly a function of the economy. ]] So you’re saying only white boomers went to work? [[ You can blame Obama for the economy but you can’t blame him for demographics. ]] I an blame him for the proliferation of the welfare state which affects all demos. As far as fracking goes, it makes us independent of foreign oil. Wouldn’t it be nice to keep the money here? I understand that the market dictates price. But I’d rather have people in the states working those jobs… Read more »

You’re being fairly civil with me (“Obamite” notwithstanding) so I’m not sure if you’re misunderstanding me intentionally or not. What I’m telling you (and what the graph tells you if you know how to read it) is that the labor force participation rate is subject to some very long-term trends that predate any living president. There were a whole lot of babies (white, black and every other color) born between the mid 40s and early 50s. More babies than had ever been born before in that amount of time. A baby boom if you will. That enormous generation grew up… Read more »

Look. I do not care about the LFPR. I look at the unemployment rate. Why are they not working? We have 140,000,000 more people now than 1960. And we now have roughly 160,000,000 people of working age. They are not working because they lack the skill set in many cases for the 21st century. And the handouts have become easier to obtain creating a desire to do nothing and get paid the same as flipping a burger. Dems love a welfare state. I already acknowledged how oil is traded. And we seem pretty dependent on foreign oil……….. “Petroleum” includes crude… Read more »

Well the good news is that the unemployment rate is down to 5.9% and has been dropping steadily since 2010 or so. Feel better now?

Burger flippers at minimum wage and 29 hours a week can rejoice. Sound about right?

Paul Sheridan
Guest

Someone’s got to flip burgers. In the best possible economy somebody is still flipping burgers right? Minimum wage earning jobs are declining slightly though, while employment is trending upwards. If you would just look some stuff up for yourself I wouldn’t have to go check the BLS web site every time.

Andy Martin
Guest

And now we have more flippers thanks to Obama. You good with that?
If you have soooo much data that refutes my point, post it.

Paul Sheridan
Guest

I would imagine that the number of burger flippers is a function of how many fast food restaurants there are in this country. Not sure how the President can influence that number one way or the other.
And I thought the idea was that liberals are lazy welfare queens while conservatives are hard workers. Yet here I am slaving away to bring you data you could look up yourself if you could be bothered. Sigh.

Unemployment rate over time:
http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS14000000

Minimum Wage Earners as a percentage of the workforce:
http://www.bls.gov/opub/ted/2014/ted_20140403.htm

Both trending down. So fewer unemployed and fewer of the employed making minimum wage. Thanks Obama!!

I see we’re back to name calling. “Wages are down” New jobs created after the recession pay 23% less than the average wages of jobs lost during the recession according to the actual study, not the Breitbart story that reported on it which said that wages were down 23% overall. Those are two very different things. That’s why you can’t rely on ideological sources for your news, they play fast and loose with the facts. Median wages are actually pretty much the same as before the recession, which is not great but certainly not a 23% drop either. http://www.bls.gov/news.release/wkyeng.t01.htm I’ll… Read more »

Leadership is accepting responsibility when it goes bad and you pass on praise to your people when its good. This POTUS does neither its either someone else fault or look look what I did !!!!
