1,000 days of Obama

Just the facts baby, just the facts!

DEBT: Total Public Debt Outstanding has increased by $4.2 trillion [source: Treasury Dept] Hey, hey…pretty good spending habit! Wonder what we got for our tax dollars?

MORE DEBT:  America accumulated as much debt over the past 1,000 days as it had in the country’s first 79,135 days (July 4, 1776 through March 3, 1993) [source: Treasury Dept]
Hey, hey…This must be a record that Obama is proud of!

DEBT PER DAY: America’s debt has increased by about an average of $4.2 billion per day [source: Treasury Dept]
Dang, that is just hard for a simple minded person like me to comprehend…All I do know is, that is a pretty big increase, what did we get for our tax dollars?

INTEREST ON U.S. DEBT: $1.2 trillion has been spent servicing U.S. debt—that by itself would be the world’s 15th largest economy [source: Treasury Dept]
Hey, hey…is this money well spent??? Most going to China who we also run a trade deficit with! Man, they must love the good old USA tax payers

JOBS: 2.22 million jobs lost [source: BLS] How did this happen?
What about all the money we spent? What about cash for clunkers and the stimulus deal? What happened? Didn’t it work???

POVERTY:  Nearly 3 million more Americans in poverty—poverty rate has gone from 13.2% to 15.1% [source: Census]
Wholly cow! In the last 1,000 days under the all caring, all powerful Obama who had total control over both houses of congress for 2 years, what happened? What the heck is he doing?

FOOD STAMPS: 12 million more Americans living off of food stamps [source: Dept of Agriculture // Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program] Wholly, wholly cow! 12 million MORE! Not counting the people that were already on food stamps! Is this how the Obama government helps the citizens of the USA, take away jobs and give you food stamps instead?
GOVERNMENT SPENDING: Spent more than $9.6 trillion – 60% more than the federal government has taken in [source: OMB and CBO] What, I don’t understand…how can anyone spend 60% more that you earn? Is this how the smartest man in America, how his, how Obama math works???

MORE GOVERNMENT SPENDING: Under Obama, the govt has spent an average of $6.6 million every minute and $111,111 every second [source: OMB and CBO]

CHINA: Owns $1.17 trillion of our debt (as of July) – a 58% increase from January 2009 [source: Treasury Dept]
They must dearly love Obama…58% increase!!!

GOVERNMENT JOBS: Excluding the U.S. Post Office, Federal Government has added 140,000 jobs [source: BLS] Is this where he says they saved or created jobs??? Hate to tell the smartest president ever…this is just is counterproductive! It will most likely lead to more waste and government regulations.
UNEMPLOYMENT RATE: Has averaged 9.4% under Obama [source: BLS] WHAT, Obama said by spending all that money on the stimulus, that unemployment would not go over 8% and it was below 8% when he made his statement...was he wrong…or LIEING!

MORE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE: Has been at or above 9% for 840 of the 1000 days [source: BLS]
What, how could that be, he had total control and passed whatever he wanted for the 1st two years unrestricted

UNDEREMPLOYED: Nearly 5 million more Americans are underemployed [source: BLS] That means you have to add those to the unemployment, plus, add the people who quit looking and those that where self employed and not eligible for unemployment benefits…what is the REAL numbers under Obama?
REGULATIONS – NEW RULES: 7,076 new final regulatory rules issued [source: Federal Register] 1,000 day and &,076 new regulations…7 new regulations per day! I knew those new government workers would do something…Huge spending debt, no new non-government jobs but time to make and implement 7,076 new regulations and rules…Kinda shows where the focus is huh?

REGULATIONS – FEDERAL REGISTER: 45,696 pages of new regulatory rules were added to the Federal Register
[source: National Archives and Records Administration, Office of the Federal Register, various years]
Why not??? What else are these new government employees suppose to do all day…the have to think of ways to justify their jobs!

AVERAGE WEEKS UNEMPLOYED: Unemployed out of work for an average of 40.5 weeks – that’s more than double since Jan 2009 [source: BLS]
Hmmm, Mr Obama is doing a bang up job with spending our money on this recession…sure am glad to hear that everyone is doing much better finding those jobs. O-ya…forgot, they don’t need jobs because their benefits were extended! You are welcome Mr. and Mrs. Happily Unemployed

JOB APPROVAL RATING: Dropped nearly 30 percentage points [source: Gallup Tracking]
Well, there is some good news. People are at least looking at what Obama has actually done and not at just the feel good promises he made. And no, you are not a racist for believing that Obama sucks as President. Facts are Facts!

SPEECHES AND PUBLIC REMARKS: Roughly 806 speeches/public remarks made – once every 1.24 days [source:]
Well, give him his due, Obama sure can talk. I personally am starting to believe he just likes to hear himself speak…maybe, maybe his speeches convince him that he is doing a good job, who knows what is going through his mind?

SPEECHES --- JOBS: Has said the word “jobs” 4,718 times in 591 speeches [source:]
Well wholly cow, guess it didn’t just pop up lately, even if he would like to blame this job issue on all the new Tea Party Republicans that were elected. You would think after talking about it that much, he would have taken charge a long time ago and done something intelligent about the situation

SPEECHES -- ECONOMY: Has said the word “economy” 4,541 times in 605 speeches [source:]
There you are! He is to busy talking about the issues to do anything about them!

CIVILIAN LABOR FORCE: Has decreased by 168,000 [source: BLS]
OK, getting depressed…

MANUFACTURING: 818,000 manufacturing jobs lost --- a -6.5% drop since Jan. 2009 [source: BLS]
More depressed…

BANK FAILURES: 371 Banks have failed [source: FDIC]
Where is Obama? What is he doing???

STATES: 37 States have higher unemployment rates [source: BLS]
Dang, maybe he has just stuck his head in the sand?

GOLF: 82 rounds of golf --- average of one round every 12 days [source: Mark Knoller, CBS –Fox News Tracking]
Hey, hey…found him! I was close!!! I am sure he was in the sand pit on many of those 82 rounds of golf

REPOSSESSIONS: More than 2.4 million homes have been repossessed for failure to pay their mortgage [source: RealtyTrac]
Depressed again

BANKRUPTCIES: Some 4 million total (business and non-business) bankruptcies [source: American Bankruptcy Institute]
Where does all that money go? If banks are failing and home owners are failing…where is the money going???

GAS PRICES: Up more than 80% and has been over $3/gallon every day in 2011 [source: AAA/OPIS]
O-my word…80%??? Well…he sure enough got what he wanted when he said the price of fuel needed to go up so as to promote electric cars that he wants you to drive. Guess some of that money is headed overseas to guys with towels on their heads

UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS: Almost $380 billion spent by federal government on unemployment benefits [source: Treasury Dept and CBO]
Hey, found some of that money!

ECONOMIC TEAM: 7 key members of Obama’s Economic team have resigned [Summers, Romer, Bernstein, Orszag, Goolsbee Volker and Rouse] [source: News Reports/Tracking] Yep, and he has the lowest number of business people in any administration…yet, he is focus on the economy and jobs…

HEALTH INSURANCE PREMIUMS: Health insurance premiums (family coverage) up 9% this year and 12.7% from 2009 [source: Kaiser Family Foundation]
O-thanks…thanks for ramming Obama care down our throats. Obama even found away to get around the Scott Brown election to do that…hmmm, he is smart at doing one thing, can’t deny that!

MEDIAN INCOME: Real median household income in the U.S. in 2010 was $49,445, a -2.3% decline from 2009 [source: Census Dept]
So tell me Obama supporters, how is that hope and change working out for you? Cain looking better all the time this next go around???

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY: Spent more than $26 billion on the EPA – FY2011’s spending will be about 40% more than FY2009 [source: Treasury and OMB]
Dang, found even more money now! With this, food stamps, the unemployment benefits, gas prices and the interest on the debt Obama has rung up…yep, found lots of it!

“If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s gonna be a one-term proposition.”  Know who said this? Hint, some narcissistic President that has forgot his own statement (or it was just one more lie) and is running for re-election in 2012!

For me, I will vote for a yellow dog before I would give this hack one more day in office.
What will you do?

Here's another way to look at the Debt Ceiling:

Let's say, you come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood.

Your home has sewage all the way up to your ceilings.

What do you think you should do? ……
Raise the ceilings, or pump out the shit?

Your choice is coming Nov. 2012
