During the 2008 Presidential election cycle, along about the end of August, Presidential Candidate, Senator John McCain, said in the mainstream media that; “the economy is fundamentally fine.” Of course, this was just weeks before everything completely fell apart, not that there weren’t signs of cracking up until then. The opposing party, the Obama Campaign, challenged him on this, and then as the financial real estate banking bubble burst, it was obvious that things; were not fine. Okay so let’s talk.You see, the Obama Campaign kept running that TV Clip and sound bite of John McCain’s saying the economy was fundamentally fine over and over again in the last month up to the election. At that point there was simply no way that a Republican was going to be elected. Obama seized on this theme, and blamed President Bush, while his supporters branded John McCain “John McSame” and the rest was history and Obama made history becoming the first partially black president.It is amazing how well the Obama strategy worked in that 2008 election, but what is also fascinating is that President Obama was reelected claiming the economy was recovering thanks to his leadership as president; it’s clearly not. The CBO or Congressional Budget Office has stated that there will be a recession in 2013 if;1.) There Are Large Federal Government Spending Cuts
2.) Sequestration Goes Into Effect
3.) We Hit the Fiscal CliffStill, one could ask why this is happening – to which the answer is simple. The Obama Administration hasn’t controlled spending and he wasted the stimulus money on things which didn’t bring forth jobs to the total of $5 Trillion in the last four-years, while it not once completed a Federal Budget on time, or kept to a balanced budget. Then he told us the economy was fundamentally fine, growing again supposedly at 1.7% (which is so low it’s almost within the margin of error) and that jobs were coming back.In fact, he mentioned this in teleprompter readings (aka as speeches) in all of the swing states prior to the election. Interestingly enough, ALL of the 9 swing states had a net-loss of jobs, with no gains. Now then, noting the 3-items above by the CBO, it appears that all three could happen, so essentially we are going back into recession, we are flat-lined now, and things are NOT fundamentally fine in our economy.Why didn’t anyone call him on this? Why didn’t the media allow these questions in the national discussion? Why did President Obama get a pass with unemployment over 8% (officially), especially when the real unemployment is much higher? Please consider all this and think on it, specifically think good and hard why you voted 4-more years of economic hardship.
