Spinning the Obama-conomy

By Joseph Klein

 

The Obama spin machine is in overdrive trying to fool the American people about President Obama’s dismal record in office. His campaign has a Web site called AttackWatch devoted to fighting back against what the Obama spin machine claims are “false attacks on the President.” First, the Obama spin machine is trying to convince the American people that the economy has substantially improved under Obama’s watch, evidenced by the lower January unemployment rate of 8.3%. We’re all happy that the unemployment rate appears to be going down (although it is still higher than when Obama took office). However, there are questions as to how the 8.3% rate was calculated. Nearly three million people are not being counted as part of the labor force in the Bureau of Labor Statistics calculation of the unemployment rate. They are arbitrarily excluded from the base labor pool as if they did not exist. [more...]

Did we reach the point of no return when more than half of the citizens of this great country became takers who receive from the pot without contributing to it? Did we reach the Democratic Party “strategic dream” of a welfare state where most of the voters want to preserve the status quo and defend their unemployment check fearing that the other guys will take it from them?

“Dos” and “DON’Ts” for 2012

By Richard Bernstein

 

January and the exuberance of the New Year are coming to a close. Gone are the midnight kisses and the champagne wishes. However, there is one remnant of our 2012 jubilee that we can keep: our resolution to keep more of our own money and with a little smart planning maybe even grow your wealth for you and for your heirs.
