President Obama and Vice President Biden are heading out across the country in an attempt to convince the American people that their feelings of sadness, fear, and uncertainty are just in their heads. He will try to get them to forget that record numbers of people are still losing their homes to foreclosure everyday, that Americans are still losing their jobs daily, and when a job does open up, hundreds to thousands of people flock to apply. President Obama can say his policies are helping the economy all day long, but just because he says so doesn’t make it a reality.
The reality is his policies have undermined our economy. They’ve done nothing but act like an anchor because they extract money from the private sector, the only sector that can create wealth and jobs, through big government policies such as his $1 trillion stimulus that didn’t do anything but stimulate government expansion, ObamaCare, the government takeover of student loans, mortgage relief programs that have failed, and very soon massive taxes to pay for these new policies and government spending. Any anemic economic growth that our country is experiencing is in spite of Obama’s policies, not because of them. I think most Americans understand this fact, which is why they didn’t buy Obama’s dog and pony show that we just experienced a “recovery summer.”
