The Big Lie

Now Obama and his liberal friends aren't mass murdering anti-Semites but they do seem to like the Nazi technique called the big lie. Goebbels said that if you make up a big enough lie and repeat it enough people will believe in it.

Clearly the current liberal meme that the economy is doing fine and that government spending is not out of control is the biggest of lies. Unemployment is near 8% with the real unemployment, counting those who've given up hope of finding a job, running around 11%.  The jobs created under Obama have been low paying and part time.  Thousands are losing their health insurance due to Obamacare.  Energy costs are soaring and the average American's economic situation is deteriorating. The US's credit rating has been downgraded and the deficit is growing at an astronomical rate.

Now the Obama team will point to the stock market as an example of how wonderful the economy is. However the people who benefit most from a booming stock market are the wealthy, precisely those people who Obama says are the villains.

Do you remember when Bush was president? Even though the economy was still growing and unemployment was on the order of 5% or less the media was screaming that we were in a recession. But now with much higher unemployment and stagnant growth the same media is telling us we've never had it so good.

Don't buy the big lie; the Obama economy is a mess and he's not even pretending to try and fix it anymore. All Obama cares about is raising taxes so he can spend more of your money.
