The Obama Presidency By The Numbers

Video below the fold. Worth your time (hat tip to Rational Nation USA).

Fact check (dated October 5, 2011):
The Obama administration passed another fiscal milestone this week, according to new data released by the Treasury Department. As of the close of business on Oct. 3, the total national debt was $14,837,099,271,196.71—up about $44.8 billion from Sept. 30.

...[I]n the less-than-three-years Obama has been in office, the federal debt has increased by $4.212 trillion--more than the total national debt of about $4.1672 trillion accumulated by all 41 U.S. presidents from George Washington through George H.W. Bush combined.


That would equal nearly $53,000 for each American household or more than $66,00 for each full-time private-sector worker....
What is the road out of this mess?


  1. I watch this and I am struck by is lecturing, we're too stupid, tone. It's irritating.

    He is in over his head, and he has no idea how to form a chain of logic and engage in a debate.

    I still haven't seen any of that vaunted high intelligence he supposedly possesses. I see a frustrated, peevish child.

  2. Looks like the man wrote his own epitaph three years ago... "One Term President".

  3. Can we survive one term of this guy?

    Any one else notice every time he or one of his lackeys speak the opposite happens?

    A $2500 decrease promise ends up as a $2500 increase.

    I disagree with the slide on housing. Perhpas it is the area of the Nation, I am in but the typical drop on a $180,000 home which was the average here has gone down 30,000 not 3,000. I know a family of five that are voluntarily evicting themselves and going to an apartment because they got behind while dad was unemployed and now they know even though he is working that they can never recover the lost equity in their home.

  4. More reason to vote HERMAN CAIN.

    Right Truth

  5. Our class warfare Commander-in-Chief has no intentions of running on his record. He and his class warfare troops are going to do every thing possible to control the debate to "we versus them". That is all he has and in the economic condition we have today, many people will be vulnerable to this message.

  6. and Wall St is getting worse AOW..where is our true leader...no more fear mongering!!!

  7. I just heard Obama's presser. I am going to be sick. Why did I do that??

  8. Good find! I swiped it.

    Notice how much Obama has aged in three years? I guess corruption and stupidity takes it's toll!

  9. I watched the presser too, Bunkerville...but had to leave so I only got a bit of it and blogged it...

    I've been calling him LECTURER IN CHIEF for the last few months because I'm SICK of his spanking the Republicans. Now he's whining about his 'dings and bruises'..and how Republicans put politics in front of country... I'm so SICK of the "if you don't like what I like, you're stupid and need to be scolded" CRAP. It's CRAP, pardon the language, and I guess he figures there are enough AMericans who believe him and don't think outside his box so it's worth it to insult and demean a whole half of America; THE CONSERVATIVE.

    Problem is, it's working. Rassmussen and other polls show that his BS is working. How people can be so stupid never ceases to amaze me.
    The only quality reason I can find is that they are so totally uninformed and misinformed that they wouldn't know truth if it smacked them upside the head.

  11. What is the road out of this mess?


  12. Bunkerville and Z mentioned Obama's press conference yesterday (Thursday). I was at work and didn't see the press conference, but just saw THIS at the HuffPo:

    He deployed hand chops, finger wags, furrowed brows. He was sarcastic, demanding, partisan.


    Standing ramrod straight, Obama kept up the newly aggressive tone that he's adopted as the 2012 campaign approaches, punctuating his words with the single hand chop, the double hand chop and the bouncing fist.

    To enumerate key points, he'd raise a balled-up hand, then extend the thumb, next the pointer and work his way down to the pinkie.

    Like a parent admonishing a child, Obama laid out a stern – and utterly unrealistic – "expectation" that every legislator would vote for the jobs bill....

    Apparently, quite the hour long, aggressive performance from one who said less than a year ago, in reference to the November 2010 elections: "We took quite a shellacking."

  13. Conservatives On Fire,
    He and his class warfare troops are going to do every thing possible to control the debate to "we versus them".

    I happen to get emails from the SEIU. Wow, the SEIU is now trying to rally folks in suburban locations to demonstrate at and disrupt meetings at the local town hall buildings while the town councils are in session.

    Is it only a matter of time before serious violence breaks out? Phony violence or otherwise, I mean.

  14. Silverfiddle,
    I watch this and I am struck by is lecturing, we're too stupid, tone.


    And, as I mentioned above, he ratcheted up that tone. I can't recall any President of the United States going on and on for an hour like that.

  15. Good grief! More numbers:

    Even as the Obama administration postures on behalf of deficit reduction and job creation, it continues to advance policies that undermine energy production in the Gulf region and lower federal revenue, Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) has pointed out in his correspondence with top officials in Washington D.C.


    “Under the Obama administration’s management, revenue from our offshore lease sale program has gone from $10 billion to nothing in just three years,” Vitter said. “Revenue cannot be generated from sales that do not happen, and jobs cannot be created on leases that private industry cannot acquire...."

  16. I guess you forget that most of this information was before Bush left the economy in a state of near depression. Also, the GOP had fought Obama every step of the way towards full recovery to the point of hurting the middle class. Still, the economy was saved from a depression by Obama's Stimulus, the economy HAS grown every months since-but it's not going to be fixed in just a few years and Obama has created more jobs than Bush created in 8 years. If the GOP gets their heads out of the butt of the wealthy corporations, we can begin to recover fully.

  17. Truthfully now, what would the GOP do to grow this economy besides taking away from the middle class? You prepared to give up your social security, you medicare? Regulations on food companies which protect your health? You ok with our roads and bridges crumbling? You ok with banks screwing you forever?

  18. Bd, your stupidity never ceases to amaze us. Stimulus worked? Damn boy what planet are you living on or what are you smoking? IT FAILED and the fool expects to pass more of the same. Even members of his own party are not that damn stupid. Why do you think Harry (dead on arrival) Reid won't allow it to come for a vote.

    Bd I fear it is too late for you to get help. Just go away and play with those who are as stupid as you are.

  19. The numbers don't lie... We must get rid of this horrid president!

  20. I can't get enough of this clip! Obama keeps promising to be a one-term president--don't let the door hit you on the way out, prez!
    bd--the GOP had no say until this past January when they took control of one house. The Dems were in control of 2 branches of gov't for almost 2 years. Yet, the economic debacle is WHOSE fault?

  21. in response ot freedom by the way...

    you cant fix dumb. sorry AOW but i can think of no way to describe liberals like Bd who can not seem to grasp the fact that Dems controlled the both houses of the Congress from 2006-2010 and since 2010 the so called Repubs have control of only 1 half of COngress. What is happening is our economy is the fault of Democrats aka liberals aka Communists. To deny this is to reveal ones ignornace. Of course denial is the first stage in recovery.

  22. The road out is definitely not one led by a democrat, thanks to them you'll end up being some sort of financial basket case.

    As i was saying elsewhere, it's time obama took his crap and went home, give way to a real business man, a real black man, and one who probably has a real birth certificate too. lol
