Four More Years of Obama is Four More Years of His No Job Presidency

What’s clear about the past four years is President Barack Obama hasn’t done anything to improve the U.S. economy. When Obama was elected unemployment was 7.6% today it’s 7.9% and has been at or above 8% his entire time in office, except for two months. He’s been a colossal failure, full of promises of hope and change, and signifying nothing but misery as evidenced by the October jobs report.

The Labor Department’s October Jobs report revealed the unemployment rate increased to 7.9% in October up from 7.8% in September. So the decline in the jobless rate in September, touted by Democrats as a sign of recovery, was what economists and conservatives predicted a fluke, no pun intended.

Even worse, the jobless rate for black Americans climbed again to 14.3%, which demonstrates that while Obama has failed all Americans, he really doesn’t have black Americans’ backs. This begs the question of why any Americans, and particularly blacks, would vote for him again?  

Obama may have inherited a mess in 2009 but he has made it worse with his irresponsible spending and hardened refusal to embrace Republican ideas on tax, health care and entitlement reform, economic stimulus or debt reduction. Obama has put the country on the path to financial ruin with $16 trillion in debt, gnawingly high unemployment, and he wants four more years to give us more of the same. 

What exactly has Obama been selling for the past four years that Americans want four more years of? Do they want Obama’s no-growth economy, joblessness, or his race? Last year the Obama campaign released a radio ad with a baritone black man proclaiming “We have to show the president we’ve got his back.” Why? Obama has shown he doesn’t have anyone’s back, black, brown, white, or other, but his own. The only job Obama is interested in saving is his own.
