Obama: 'By Almost Every Measure, We Are Better Off Than When I Took Office'
July 9, 2014 - 1:54 PM

By Curtis Kalin

At an event in Denver today, President Obama uncorked one of the most audacious claims of his Presidency, that America is better off than when he took office, "by almost every measure."

Quote
"So despite what you may hear, there is no doubt we are making progress. By almost every measure, we are better off than when I took office."



... The key word in Obama's statement being "almost."

Despite Obama’s claim, a quick scan of the news easily debunks his claim:

Quote
Record Number of Americans Not in Labor Force
Record Number of Women Not Participating in the Labor Force
Percentage of Americans Not in Labor Force Remains at 36-Year High
Price Index for Meats, Poultry, Fish & Eggs Rockets to All-Time High
Obama's Balloon: Federal Student Loan Debt Up 517% in 5 Years
Debt Up $6.666 Trillion Under Obama
Female Share of Federal Workforce Declining Under Obama
Major Regulations 153% Higher in First Five Years Under Obama
Youth Misery Index Hits All-Time High Under Obama, Many Millennials Would Recall
Bauer on Obama's Record: More Babies Aborted Than Jobs Created
U.S. Debt Up $1,608,304 for Each Baby Born the Year Obama Took Office

The sad thing, he actually believes it and is not just spouting some knowingly false propaganda.

I am so sick of everything being couched in terms of how it affects Obama.  His use of personal pronouns is legendary, and he had never missed an opportunity to take credit for anything you can imagine, including making up ways to spike imaginary footballs.

AC, you are giving him entirely too much credit.
False propaganda is exactly what he is spewing and he knows it.
What you can say is he has a plan and in order to reach his objective he must first tear everything down that made this country great.
Based on his progress so far, I'd say in another 2 1/2 years he will have achieved his objective.
November 6, 2012, a day in infamy...the death of a republic as we know it.

I'm not sure who I have more disdain for... Obama?  Or, the people who believe him?
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

You should pity ignorance, not revile it. You should try to wake these kinds of people up rather than lumping them in with the monsters that run our country.

Some people are just too stupid to ever be saved.
