Obama doesn’t halt Middle Class decline

The US Middle class has had a terrible 12 years. Thanks to government policies (both parties) and globalization, companies have moved many of the jobs that enabled the middle class lifestyles offshore. This discontent as well as the collapse of 2008 enabled Obama to be elected the first American pharaoh. He promised his polices would lead to an unprecedented economic golden age that would make the seas recede and the sky cleaner. The media, who are his Theben Priests, have been claiming the economy is good and prosperity is all around us. Many Americans have fallen for this lie and adore Obama as the god-king of their lives. But others know its a lie.

Since 2009  the situation for America’s middle class has gotten worse. Incomes have declined since companies very rarely give raises now. Most jobs created are service jobs that pay minimum wage. Thanks to Ben Bernanke’s money printing the value of the dollar has declined, eroding the standard of living. The Pharaonic regime has increased the debt 5 Trillion dollars in 3 1/4 years. The reality is that this is not the golden age of the American Pharaoh that the media’s propaganda is peddling. The American middle class is suffering like never before.

Barack Obama campaigned four years ago assailing President George W. Bush for wage losses suffered by the middle class. More than three years into Obama’s own presidency, those declines have only deepened.

The rebound from the worst recession since the 1930s has generated relatively few of the moderately skilled jobs that once supported the middle class, tightening the financial squeeze on many Americans, even those who are employed.

“It started long before Obama, but he hasn’t done anything,” said John Forsyth, 58, a railroad-car inspector and political independent from Lebanon, Ohio. “He kept pushing this change, change, change, and he hasn’t done anything.”

Underlying the erosion of the middle class, defined by some economists as the middle 60 percent of income earners, are trends that stretch back decades, including competition from lower-wage workers overseas and technological advances that allow factories and offices to produce more with less labor.

As a candidate in 2008, Obama blamed the reversals largely on the policies of Bush and other Republicans. He cited census figures showing that median income for working-age households — those headed by someone younger than 65 — had dropped more than $2,000 after inflation during the first seven years of Bush’s time in office.

Yet real median household income in March was down $4,300 since Obama took office in January 2009 and down $2,900 since the June 2009 start of the economic recovery, according to an analysis of census data by Sentier Research, an economic- consulting firm in Annapolis, Maryland.

Obama is an empty suit and a symbol built up by the media. He has no answers for America’s problems. Instead he cracks jokes and sings. When 45-47% of the population views you as a divine being you can get away with these lies.

Unfortunately, the elites in our nation (both parties) don’t care about the decline of the American Middle Class. They are more concerned about serving the interest of the House of Saud or supporting the Muslim Brotherhood’s Arab Spring agenda than the plight of their fellow Americans. The only solution is for every American to acquire a marketable skill and prepare for constant retraining in their lives. The days of a comfortable middle class are over. There is no politician or political movement on the horizon with an agenda to solve the problem. Americans must take matters into their own hands and look out for themselves.

The American Pharaoh made a bad situation worse. Then again, as a 3rd World Liberation ideologue that was his plan all along.

    Maybe in the red states. But as someone in a swing state, there are still alot of people who view Obama as a divine entity. I wish I was joking, but he still has a following.

    Well, well, well. Shows you just how many are in favor for bho. I mean they have thrown gasoline on this, tried to tie the Zimmerman case into this too and oh my again they get a fizzle. LOL. That says so much about bho’s support again a big flame-out!

    I don’t doubt you but there are many red states. Not to mention the attack on the Church. We don’t worship the government. We are not Europe. You should take some solace in the fact that where I am at he isn’t a god-like figure. Look even NY isn’t even in the bag for him like in 2008!!! I think a lot of people are holding their true opinions of him close to their vest. They couldn’t even get their riot in LA like they wanted….well at least not yet. So far this May Day uprising isn’t getting the news. What is getting the news is that bho is using the Osama bin Laden take-out as political fodder and it isn’t going over very well with a lot of people. Super-fail.

    The problem is that Obama is a symbol. For many he’s some sort of messiah who is taking away America’s sins. This is what we are up against, a symbol. That’s why he needs to be attacked ruthlessly.

    You are right he is a symbol….but only the lunatic fringe see him the favorable kind of symbol. The rest of America view him as a symbol of failure and that we really need to fire a lot of people in D.C. Big time!

    Actually, Obama never wanted to halt the middle class decline, he wanted to make it worse, and he’s succeeded.

    He did this so more and more people would be dependent upon the government.

    Why do you think that they’ve upped the amount of money people can earn and still qualify for food stamps?

    @ MikeA:

    My taxes are higher than my mortgage payment. Taxes are the single largest thing that takes money out of my pocket, and Obama assures me I don’t pay enough! I am pretty typical of the Middle Class. There are a lot of people in the same boat as me economically, and it really sucks.

    to be honest, I think there is some good to this Some people who got loans for homes should not have. For others, they should not own a home. The conditions to get a loan were too easy for too long. Look at Spain for what happens when banks will give a loan to anyone with a pulse. Its coming back to kill them now. Not that we aren’t taking it in the face.

    Guess what the Church. bho stepped in it big time and is even doubling-down on it. I have never seen the Church so politically against a politician. Never. It is usually *issues* and not one particualar indiviual.

    I don’t like obama, and I can point to a laundry list of reasons longer than my arm. None of which have anything to do with obama’s race. Therefore use of the racist label simply demonstrates the irrationality of the accuser.

    EXCLUSIVE: Richard Grenell hounded from Romney campaign by anti-gay conservatives

    Richard Grenell, the openly gay spokesman recently hired to sharpen the foreign policy message of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, has resigned in the wake of a full-court press by anti-gay conservatives.

    In a statement obtained by Right Turn, Grenell says:

    I have decided to resign from the Romney campaign as the Foreign Policy and National Security Spokesman. While I welcomed the challenge to confront President Obama’s foreign policy failures and weak leadership on the world stage, my ability to speak clearly and forcefully on the issues has been greatly diminished by the hyper-partisan discussion of personal issues that sometimes comes from a presidential campaign. I want to thank Governor Romney for his belief in me and my abilities and his clear message to me that being openly gay was a non-issue for him and his team.

    He has a hold on voter fraud. I think you are viewing this from the prism of your surroundings. Ask people across the country ‘are they seeing a lot bho support for re-election?’ Nope. He doesn’t have the command he did in 2008. Nope. Not. One. Bit. He is losing the younger vote by truck loads by the minute. The religious vote too. He is offending way too many people. Way too many. His heavy-handed over reach is getting attention.
    I agree this will be a hard fought election, by no doubt. But he doesn’t have the support he had in 2008 by a loooonnnnng shot.

    Obama makes surprise visit to Afghanistan

    President Obama made an unannounced visit to Afghanistan on Tuesday, landing on the one-year anniversary of the attack that killed Osama bin Laden and during a pivotal moment in U.S-Afghan relations, as the two countries look to define their military and economic ties beyond 2014.

    Campaigning on the taxpayer’s dime. Has he ever been to Afghanistan (or Iraq for that matter) before? I don’t recall him ever going except maybe once, early in his term. I think his internal polls must be abyssmal for him to be taking this tack. After all, his “anti-war” base can’t be terribly thrilled by Obama the Warrior Princess…

    @ Rodan:

    That would certainly put Obama in a tight spot, but I don’t see the former happening at all. The latter, maybe. There is no US national interest in Syria, except perhaps in seeing the whole mess degenerate into a Lebanon-style civil war so that Syria is too occupied with internal problems to be involved in external problems. We’re going to spend the next 30-40 years reaping the whirlwind of the Arab Spring, anyway. Obama totally screwed the pooch on that one, and it doesn’t help tto have RINOs like McCain and Ms. Lindsey Graham out there cheering it on. The Republican Party isn’t unified on that, though. Far from it. They just weren’t unified in their opposition to things like Obama’s Lybian Adventure to do anything about it.

    The base is against anymore wars for the Muslim Brotherhood. The Establishment including Romney are chopping their bits for a war in Syria.

    If Romney defeats Obama and gets us in a war in Syria, that will be the end of the Republican Party and his Presidency. If he goes after Iran, that’s legitimate, but Syria is just enabling the Muslim Brotherhood.

    John Williams of Shadow Stats gives us an undoctored account of the U.S. economy:

    “The weaker-than-expected initial growth estimate for first-quarter GDP rounds out a month of indicators showing increasingly soft economic activity. The economy has not recovered from its multi-year plunge in activity from 2006/2007 into late-2008/mid-2009. The recent reporting of some economic gains largely has been an illusion, tied to the effects of underestimated inflation.

    As previously noted, the U.S. consumer does not have the ability to sustain growth in personal consumption expenditures (71% of GDP), due to structural problems with household income and debt. Accordingly, there is no recovery underway or likely in the near future. Underlying economic reality does not have positive implications for the system. Ongoing economic stagnation and renewed contraction will mean much-worse-than-anticipated federal budget deficits, U.S. Treasury funding needs and banking-system solvency issues.

    Despite current protestations to the contrary, the Fed likely will be forced into a new round of easing in an effort to support the still-faltering banking system. As has been the case in recent years, though, any action here again should be under the cover of attempting to stimulate the economy. Any such action also likely will provide a trigger for heavy selling of the U.S. dollar and upside pressure on domestic inflation.
    The SGS-Alternate GDP estimate for first-quarter 2012 is an approximate annual contraction of 2.2% versus the official estimate of a 2.1% gain. Adjusted for gimmicked inflation and other methodological changes, the business downturn that began in 2006/2007 is ongoing; there has been no meaningful economic rebound.”

    Yes there is growing concensus on the Right and Left that these wars need to end. The problem is that both Obama and Romney want another war. If you criticize nation building, you get called an isolationist. Its a way to silence people.

    I’m a history buff and every major power declined or collapsed because of useless wars that were not in its interest. I see history repeating itself and our bi-partisan elites don’t care.

    ‘He then repelled down a rope from a chopper, killed Bin Laden & made it home for dinner.
    When does he salute the Seals who actually did it?

    No kidding and Michelle helped him too. She did say We got bin Laden!

    I am sure she was the helo pilot while bho did this mission all on his own and bare-handedly.

    Any American watching it who are in their right minds will cringe at the hubris of it all

    .

    I don’t know if I will watch, I can’t stomach the sight
    of him or the sound of his voice.
    He makes my teeth itch.

    I am convinced that Bin Laden actually committed suicide.
    He had intel that if he got captured he would have to join
    Moochelles, “Let’s Move” Movement & eat from her crappy
    organic garden.

    LOL … funny! She doesn’t even adhere to her “Let’s Move” and doesn’t eat the crappy food she thinks everyone else should eat.
    She is always stuffing her face with the bad foods!
