Yet, similar to how he won the election,
his admirers and most important, he himself, are satisfied that using
rhetoric to exaggerate the extent of his successes will be enough to
indoctrinate far too many of the voting citizenry with a belief in
successful change.


The nation's unemployment rate as of February 2010, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, remains just under 10%.

This despite the promise that billions for a shovel ready jobs bill would bring it down below 8% within a year.

And they've added billions more to it while also tying every bill that comes before them as being a jobs creator.

The rhetoric and the reality do not match.

Then there was the trillion dollar purchase of mortgage backed securities...to save people's homes and ignite the home buying market.

For the past 12 consecutive months foreclosures have averaged over 300,000 per month and sales of new homes in Feb. 2010 fell by 2.2% to an annual
pace of only 308,000, the slowest rate of growth since records were
first recorded in 1963.


The government's purchase of these securities is expected to end this month, the special $8,000 tax break is due to end in April, mortgage rates are expected to rise, and with
only 170,000 mortgages restructured as part of this plan, they are
approimately 3.8 million restructured mortgage short of their goal.


The rhetoric and the reality do not match.

Then there's the transparency we were promised. Bloomberg News and Fox News had to file separate lawsuits, which a federal appeals court ruled on
in their favor, to gain access to documents that show which banks
received emergency short term lending from the the Federal Reserve
after obama's government denied their requests.


And now we have great rhetoric being hurled about on his healthcare "reform." We have the line in the sand with Iran being continuously redrawn. We have
China telling us no, Israel telling us no, and Russia making it look
like Carter is still President.


obama's track record leaves us with little hope.

While those that criticize him do so for the most part with remarkably little informed criticism, the rhetoric wins.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Talks To The Dead: – He Worked On Paris Climate Deal With Long-Dead Chinese Leader

Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly claimed on Monday that he worked on the Paris Climate Accord with former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping — who died more than 20 years before its signing.

Joe Biden claimed tonight that he worked with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accord.

Except the current Chinese President is Xi Jinping.

Deng Xiapoing left office in 1992 and has been dead for 23 years.

Biden made the gaffe while citing his accomplishments in President Barack Obama’s administration.

“One of the things I’m proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord,” Biden said in a speech at the College of Charleston. “I’m the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join.”

Xiaoping served as the leader of China from 1978 until his retirement in 1992, and passed away in 1997. Xi Jinping, China’s current president, came to power 2013 and signed the country onto the 2016 agreement.

In June 2017, President Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the agreement, stating that accord will “undermine the economy” and “puts [the United States] at a permanent disadvantage.”

In addition to the Xiaoping gaffe, Biden bizarrely declared in a campaign speech that he is a “candidate for the United States Senate” and that people could “vote for the other Biden” if they prefer one of his rivals.

“My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden,” the 77-year-old said at the First in the South Dinner.

Biden’s confusing comments come as Democrat primary candidates are scheduled to debate in Charleston Tuesday evening. The former vice president faces increasing pressure to give a standout performance as his “firewall” in the Palmetto State crumbles in the face of a surging Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The Vermont senator is fresh off a decisive victory in Nevada caucuses on Saturday. Earlier this month, he placed first the New Hampshire primary and won the popular vote in Iowa. In a survey released Monday, the Public Policy Polling outfit said Biden leads South Carolina with 36 percent of support and Sanders is in second at 21 percent.
