In an interview on “The Tom Joyner Morning Show”, Obama attempted to rally the troops, the blacks, to be fired-up for the November 2010 election. I won’t discuss the racist nature of his attempt to fire-up African-Americans to work against Republicans. The deafening cries of “Rasicst!!” would have drowned out the sights and sounds of the Daytona 500 had George Bush made such a statement.
But, when you take Obama’s statement literally, he actually says that the Republican Policies are where he wants us to be:
“And we could end up slipping back into the same situation that we were in before this recession hit, only worse.”
Well, the situation when the Democrats took over Congress in 2007 and before this recession hit in 2008 was:
- A DOW at $12,621.77
- GDP of 3.5%
- Unemployment Rate of 4.6%.
- The number of jobs increasing
- National Debt of about $8.0 Trillion
Again, that seems like the good-old-days, and we Conservatives were already unhappy with the Republicans and their big-spending nature.
Don’t know if President Obama’s statement was intentional or a Freudian slip, but it seems that he did speak the truth!
