Barack Obama – Worst Economic Record of Any Modern Era President

If not falling off a cliff, today’s national jobs report is a clear indication all is far from well as American continues to struggle under the yoke of Barack Obama’s War on the Economy.

Obama Economic Record

The end of April jobs number came in at nearly 60.000 fewer jobs than was estimated – just 115,000 jobs created.  This number represents the lowest amount in six months and could be signaling the increasing possibility of unemployment going back UP by summer.  Perhaps even more troubling was the nearly 350,000 Americans who left the work force altogether this past month.  It has been the decline in workforce population that has accounted for most of the decline in the unemployment figures – less people being counted means a reduced unemployment rate.  The Obama administration has known of this scenario, but has all but ignored it in favor of continued spin that the economy continues on a path to full recovery.

In addition to the tepid jobs growth, the Obama economy has also led to the United States decline in overall competitiveness with other nations, a dramatic rise in food stamp use, equally shocking rises in college tuition, health care, gas prices, and both national and individual debt.

It should be noted that no modern era economic recovery following a recession has been as slow and faltering as has this almost absent recovery under President Barack Obama.  He has become, in essence, the single worst performing economic president in generations.

America’s opportunity to make Barack Obama a one-term president is now just six months away.

    • Team Zero will manipulate the ‘unemployment rate’ to get it sufficiently below the magic 8% number by election day. Unfortunately, it’s just the kind of soundbite the great unwashed will blindly believe and take to the voting booth.

      Time to advertise all those who’ve given up looking for jobs, exhausted their unemployment benefits and have now gone on Social Security Disability (owing to mental illness & stress) for the rest of their lives. Numbers have risen to 8.7 million, from 7.1 million in 2007 — so far . . .

    • 57th State
    • There are 88 million people that are of working age that are not in the workforce. Yes, that is almost 100 million people in the U.S.A. that sit on their ass for a living.

      • AmericatheBeautiful
      • The worst number since the Great Depression and not to count the people who are so defeated and have dropped out would put unemployment at near 12%. The fraud is another outrage.

        • ITYS
        • Except during that 1st depression there were NO food stamps, NO child care subsidies, NO SCHIP (children’s HC), NO energy subsidies and NO FREE cell phones so the quintessential American self determination to pursue happiness was needed to survive.

          Today the parasites bemoan the success of the providers, complain and take ZERO responsibility towards self determination as long as they can have their freebies. There is NO desire or ambition to succeed. I too believe its been the calculated destruction of the US all along, and assiduously he has now further corrupted an entire huge segment of the population with his Marxist, comman and control dependency. What these morons do not get is when govt giveth, govt can take away……ie: liberties!

          It’s life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness……Not the GURANTEE!

      Is anyone else having problems with the pages on the Ulsterman Report loading and then disappearing. I have to hit the “x” at the top of my browser to stop the page from completely loading or it will eventually simply go blank. Very, very frustrating.

    • It’s depressingly funny watching the left hold up a purple sheet of paper while jumping through flaming hoops claiming the paper is white. We can only hope that America has the good sense to survive and throw out the trash. I firmly maintain there needs to be massive reckoning after the scum is flushed. I submit Holder for the first of many convictions.

    • UM you’re making an assumption here. The way I see it, Obysmal is damn proud of this report card – he’s right on track with his plan: 51% of the voters dependent on him to continue paying welfare for the next four years.

      • ThroughTheLookingGlass
      • StBS, I would agree with you, if I thought Barry could see past the end of his nose. He doesn’t give a damn about the numbers…any of the numbers. He’s stuck on numero uno because all that matters to him is that he is the POTUS. He thinks that all he has to do is talk and things will change…the unemployment, the economy, the war in Afghanistan, nuclear Iran, gas prices…. He thinks he can negotiate his problems away. Meanwhile, his Czars are regulating the country into a socialist state and his Demoncrat leaders–Reid and Pelosi–are keeping progress and solutions in a holding pattern over the Capitol building.

        He’s all about the title and too lazy and entitled himself to do the work. We should refer to him as the Occupier in Chief.

        • I like Occupier in Chief. He occupies the White House; he occupies Air force One; he occupies numerous golf courses. Soul mate with the destructive Occupy Everything crowd.

        • Stirrin the B.S.
        • You hit on something there, TTLG. Oblaspheme publicly talks a good game, while his czars and regulators are tightening the vise, and then he blames his inability to fix anything on congress. He throws up so much smoke that his obamabots just follow his tail lights over the cliff.

      • Anonymouse
      • Absolute 100 percent true, in my studied opinion, Stirrin the B.S. (May 4, 2012 at 5:10 pm).  Obama has not hidden his agendum to destroy the United States by destroying its economy and destroying its military.  Whereas the Destructor-in-Chief may lack in the IQ department, he apparently has not lacked in following instructions from his masters.

        Obama’s red-on-black design of his “Attack Watch” website hints at Communist ideology.  Search Google images for the string Obama “Attack Watch” to see some of its pages if you haven’t already.  And what colors were his campaign bus?

        Can you confidently disregard the woman in Moscow who knew — back in 1992(!) — about the prepping of Obama for the U.S. presidency?  Think about it.  At a dinner party TWENTY (20) YEARS AGO that Moscow resident said:

        “What if I told you that you will have a black president very soon and he will be a Communist?”


        “Yes, it is true. This is not some idle talk. He is already born, and he is educated and being groomed to be president right now. You will be impressed to know that he has gone to the best schools of presidents. He is what you call ‘Ivy League.’ You don’t believe me, but he is real and I even know his name. His name is Barack. His mother is white and American and his father is black from Africa. . . .

        You can read the context here, and get to Tom Fife’s original document (© 2006-2009) by following the link in this introductory article:

    • The problem with the numbers is that if over 50% of the population is on food stamps or some other government benefit, they will vote for the person who will continue their government handout. There is a reason why the benefits keep getting extended by the Democrats. It’s to continue people on the government dole and get them to realize that if they vote for the Republican nominee, their handout will end. If you were getting something for nothing, would you vote Democratic or Republican?

      This is why socialism/communism fails. Being a hard worker is not beneficial. Why should I work my butt off so you can sit on yours and make the same amount of money?

    • CHHR, VA
    • You forgot the participaton rate, 61%, lowest in 30 years, that’s more dangerous then the disasterous numbers quoted above. If eligible workers aren’t able to work, just who is there to pay off that debt and provide the subsidies listed above?

      Time to learn Chinese?
