Boston Herald: Economy and jobs shrinking, debt soaring, but from Obama it's all about gun control, same-sex marriage, women in combat and illegal immigrationTopics:
Michael Graham, writing at the Boston Herald, is seeing the same thing that most of the rest of us are. Our weak economy is stumbling yet again. America's GDP actually shrank during the last three months of 2012, after three years of Obama's "recovery." Jobless claims jumped last week "unexpectedly," and a new report says our national debt will soon be 200 percent of our entire national output -- twice as high as that of Greece. Yet since the inauguration, all President Obama and the White House have been talking about is gun control, same-sex marriage, women in combat and illegal immigration.
[...] Do you go to bed at night worrying about high-capacity magazines for guns, or doing more to make it easier for illegal immigrants to stay in America?Read the whole thing. Graham's perspective speaks volumes as to the degree that our president's ideological priorities are out of touch with the reality of the needs of the country.
Not me. I'm out looking for a job; I'm trying to figure out how I'm ever going to pay Gov. Deval Patrick's proposed new income tax hike and the health costs driven up by Obamacare.
Meanwhile, this economy that Obama and the Democrats have pumped trillions of borrowed Chinese dollars into for "stimulus" and Solyndra-style green jobs is shrinking, not growing.
Nancy Pelosi promised us that unemployment checks "create jobs faster than any other initiative you can name." Well, we spent three years extending benefits, and the percentage of able-bodied adults in the workforce is smaller today than when Obama took office. That's part of the reason household incomes are still lower, not higher.
Falling incomes, a crappy economy, not enough decent-paying jobs. An economy that's fallen into negative growth, while debt is exploding. Isn't this the point in the movie where someone shouts in terror "We've got to do something!"
[...] I'd love to live in an America where the biggest issue facing working families is whether or not women fight on the front lines.
But the families I know are fighting just to pay their own bills.
