It’s an Obama world.

The liberal media forgot to tell you just how bad things are under Barack Obama.
712,000 Americans fell into poverty in 2011, thanks to Barack Obama and Democrats.
And, thanks to the media, you didn’t hear about it until now.
Investor’s Business Daily reported:

Economy: “The economy’s getting stronger … confidence is growing.” The media and Obama repeated these like a mantra. But as IBD reported earlier, real weekly earnings for American workers have fallen 3.5% since Obama took over, a declining trend that has continued post-election.

How about other signs of well-being? The Census Bureau reported after the election that the number of Americans in poverty grew by 712,000 people in 2011. A far-more bullish report issued in September said it had fallen by 96,000. Oh yes, and a record 47 million people today are on food stamps — up 47% since Obama took over…

…Yes, unemployment has dropped to 7.7%. But only because hundreds of thousands of Americans have left the workforce. In September and October, nonpayroll farm jobs were reported as rising 148,000 and 171,000, respectively, solid gains. The mainstream media played it up as a major turnaround for the economy, giving Obama a boost.

In early December, a new government jobs report highlighted that job growth was a 146,000 in November, less than the 151,000 average since the start of the year. And it revised September and October job growth down by 49,000.

Yes, the total number of people with private-sector jobs has grown by 2 million over the last year, as the White House proudly trumpets — and did on the campaign trail. But what never gets reported is that 2.4 million people have left the workforce entirely over the same stretch — so there is no net real job growth

Taxes: Remember how Obama and his Democratic surrogates taunted Republicans repeatedly, saying they wanted to raise taxes only on “millionaires and billionaires” while cutting taxes for the middle class?

When Republicans tried to do just that, Obama said no thanks. In fact, he has major tax hikes in store for middle-class Americans — starting with ObamaCare’s 18 or so new taxes, and ending with the admission of key Democrats such as former presidential candidate Howard Dean that taxes on everyone must rise dramatically to pay for the Democrats’ spending orgy.

You can thank the liberal media for hiding these facts from the American public before the election this year.

    Tax Increases Looming in 2013: Who Pays, How Much and Will They Stick?

    If Washington can’t reach an agreement and it looks that way then Obama wins again. The American voters haven’t research or done their homework and if you think 712,000 more in poverty is a lot, you ain’t seen nothing, yet. I fear this is Obama’s plan for America.

  2. No worries! We all live in a new found Worker’s Paradise – Obama says so. He’s gonna put war and poverty out of our worries and soon we’ll see rainbows, unicorns, fluffy bunnies and we’ll all be eating lotus blossoms!

    That’s what the Marxist Socialist Manipulators tell us so it must be true!

    They wouldn’t lie to us.

    Wouldn’t they?

  3. We can’t pay back the $16 trillion we owe now. I’m sure adding to our deficit and debt will solve that problem, right? LIB!

  4. The United States is out of scale for a republican form of government. Watch the following video:

  5. When Obama care kicks in, taxes go up, layoffs are in the future, the plan will soon be complete, as this is the path Obama is taking us on.

    Lyrics, for Breitbart, Hoft, et al.

    You’ve got the words to change a nation
    But you’re biting your tongue
    You’ve spent a life time stuck in silence
    Afraid you’ll say something wrong
    If no one ever hears it how we gonna learn your song?
    So come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    You’ve got a heart as loud as lions
    So why let your voice be tamed?
    Baby we’re a little different
    There’s no need to be ashamed
    You’ve got the light to fight the shadows
    So stop hiding it away
    Come on, Come on

    I wanna sing, I wanna shout
    I wanna scream till the words dry out
    So put it in all of the papers,
    I’m not afraid
    They can read all about it
    Read all about it, oh
    Oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh

    At night we’re waking up the neighbours
    While we sing away the blues
    Making sure that we remember, yeah, yeah
    Cause we all matter too
    If the truth has been forbidden
    Then we’re breaking all the rules
    So come on, come on
    Come on, come on,
    Let’s get the TV and the radio
    To play our tune again
    It’s ’bout time we got some airplay of our version of events
    There’s no need to be afraid
    I will sing with you my friend
    Come on, come on

    I wanna sing, I wanna shout
    I wanna scream till the words dry out
    So put it in all of the papers,
    I’m not afraid
    They can read all about it
    Read all about it, oh
    Oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh

    Yeah, we’re all wonderful, wonderful people
    So when did we all get so fearful?
    Now we’re finally finding our voices
    So take a chance, come help me sing this
    Yeah, we’re all wonderful, wonderful people
    So when did we all get so fearful?
    And now we’re finally finding our voices
    So take a chance, come help me sing this

    I wanna sing, I wanna shout
    I wanna scream till the words dry out
    So put it in all of the papers,
    I’m not afraid
    They can read all about it
    Read all about it, oh
    Oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh

    I wanna sing, I wanna shout
    I wanna scream till the words dry out
    So put it in all of the papers,
    I’m not afraid
    They can read all about it
    Read all about it, oh.

    And to you and all your family. God Bless!

  11. At least someone should not that the Obama administration revised the poverty line HIGHER. It’s another step in the redistribution scheme. Just fyi.

  12. easier to bring the middle class down to the poverty level. saul alinsky recognized the need to organize the middle class in with the poor. instead of being glad for what you have you bemoan what you don’t have and how unfair. keeping up with the jones’ is a one way highway to hell.
