Some Other Things Obama Has Forgotten About

Yesterday at a fundraiser in Seattle, WA, President Obama said that he sometimes forgets the magnitude of the recession. As he campaigns desperately for reelection, Obama might have conveniently forgotten a few other hard truths and facts about his presidency

  • Obama 2009: If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition?”

  • Obama promised unemployment would not go above 8%; it’s been above 8% for record 39 straight months

  • 12.5 million unemployed Americans
  • 45 million Americans on food stamps
  • Obama promised to cut deficit in half, instead ran three straight $1 trillion+ deficits
  • Obama’08: “unpatriotic” to add $4 trillion in debt; he’s added $5 trillion and counting
  • Obama promised to prevent 7-9 million foreclosures; since taking office, nearly 8 million foreclosure filings
  • Obama promised ObamaCare will reduce premiums by $2500; instead health insurance costs increased by 9%
