Under Obama, the New American Dream Is a Job

July 30, 2012 at 4:46 pm

There’s not much to cheer in our scrappy election campaign. We hear that more than 4.4 million private sector jobs have been added in 28 straight months of job growth, and that the president is taking “aggressive steps to put Americans back to work.” The happy talk invites a slogan from the 1984 election: “Where’s the beef?”

The assessment that the U.S. economy is “stuck in the mud,” just given to lawmakers by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, underscores yet again that there has been no recovery since the theoretical ending of the recession in June 2009.

    I’m amazed NoMoBamma can use the bathroom without some one to help him with the paperwork.

    Under Nobama care, the New American Dream is an old nightmare. If his health care is no better than his singing voice, we are doomed!!!

    Obama has made our Justice System release over 150 illegal immigrant criminals, who have committed crimes, murders and attempted murders, only to go on to committing more crimes. Obama is allowing the illegal immigrants to have drivers licenses, illegal voting rights and non-existing rules, etc. When will American voters realize that this President has no intention of doing the job of a US President, following the job descriptions of keeping the laws, the Constitution laws, the Bill of Rights laws, and All of the Amendments? Americans need to vote for impeachment, search for citizenship documents and ouster from America.
