Although Americans have been treated to massaged unemployment numbers and Obama cheerily tells us the forecast is sunny, the most recent figures from his own labor department show 93,175,000 Americans are out of work. Record setting dismal figures are undeniable. Blacks and women have been hit especially hard. The 62.7 percent rate of Americans not in the labor force matches a 37-year low.
Earlier this year, even the left-of-center CNN had its fill. The network ran with this headline after Obama’s claim during his State of the Union address, “Obama says wages are growing. They’re not.”
In March just 126,000 new jobs were added, falling far short of the expected 245,000, and resulting in the worst report since December 2013.
And Obama’s answer to this economic disaster? Open the floodgates to illegals and import more foreign workers to compete with American citizens for ever fewer jobs.
Trusting anything Obama says is risky business. His glib claim that ISIS was a “JV team,” has been proven wrong with disastrous consequences. Just months ago, he pointed to Yemen as a “counterterrorism success story.” Now we read that bodies litter the streets and the president was evacuated as rebels seized the palace. Obama arrogantly puts the world in peril while working out a nuclear enrichment deal with Iran, a country whose leader led a chant of “Death to America” as the negotiations were underway.
Having a shallow, compulsive liar running the USA isn’t working. It’s time to put a conservative Republican in charge.
