The Obama Legacy: 8 Charts That Will Blow Your Mind

It's one thing to review the raw data, but it's another thing altogether to see the numbers represented in graphical form.

For those of you still trying to grasp the impact -- I mean you liberals -- I'll try to put it in small words and say it slllloooowwwwly for you:

The economy sucks.

And the country is bankrupt.

Mission Accomplished!

Update: CNBC -- "Inflation Actually Near 10% Using Older Measure"

@Anon - try again, schmuck.

I'm no fan of Bush, but no one on the planet has ever spent like Obama has in the last three years.

january 2009 to april 2011 is 27 months, not three years.

when you have a great recession/depression you spend, and spend, and spend to put money in people's hands to stimulate demand (and to try and help those who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own.)

why are corps sitting on a trillion in cash and not investing in their businesses and creating jobs?

beeeeccaaauuussseee thereeee is nnooooooo demaaaaaand.

and they are not the brave entrepreneurs that you would like to think. they are really a bunch of chicken sh1ts unless thye are playing with my money.

why don't you put up the statistics for the changes in wealth and income distribution for the last 30 years?

directorblue said...

@Anon - no need. Try taking away all of the advances from the last 30 years. Get off your computer, your fuel-efficient, clean-burning auto, your cellphone, all of the other creations of the free market.

To paraphrase Milton Friedman: who are these angels on Earth that can redistribute everyone's wealth? Barack Obama? Nancy Pelosi? Barney Freaking Frank?

There isn't a corporation on Earth that can force you to pay it whether you want to or not.

There isn't a corporation on the planet that can throw you in jail for failure to adhere to its hundreds of thousands of pages of laws, regulations and dictates.

There isn't a corporation anywhere that can make you buy a one-size-fits-all health care plan, or a certain kind of light bulb, or low-flow toilet, or a certain size of car, and on and on.

There isn't a corporation anywhere that can command you -- the citizen -- to participate in multi-trillion dollar Ponzi schemes.

Only a giant, enormous, leviathan of a bankrupt federal government can do all of these things. And, then, only because a certain group of power-hungry, easily corrupted politicians, lawyers and judges have ignored our highest law: the Constitution.

Because they wantonly disregard thousands of years of human experience, facts, logic, and reason.

Our Framers created the Constitution to prevent the rise of an all-powerful, autocratic, authoritarian central government. Instead, the modern Statist -- like Stiglitz -- justifies his actions by claiming it will be different this time. If only he can have more of your money. If only he can have more power. If only.

But it wasn't the corporations that ruined the economy: it's the politicians who violate their oaths of office every day of the week. That's what the Tea Party is all about, dunce. And that's why every one concerned with the future of America should support Constitutional conservatism.

It's the only hope we have left.

Bush worked with a Democrat Pelosi Congress in his last two years. They spent too much. But then Obama worked with that Pelosi Congress for 2 more and they put us all in the poor house.

A pox on their house.

Don't you people care about your KIDS??? Their taxes will be astronomical if we don't get this spending and debt under control NOW. If we have to suffer a little, it's better than having our kids suffer ALOT.

This regime has GOT to be tossed OUT in 2012. Before we become the next Venezuela. We are more than half way there already.

Simply moronic to use the Mission Accomplished banner in this article

Tea Party? Lol... what a laugh. If you put a pig in a dress, and call it another name, it's STILL a pig. The TP is made up of the radical-conservatives who were fed up with the wishy-washy incumbents. Now they are force feeding us their radical views and labeling it "Progressive". What a bunch of malarky. Let's get rid of ALL career politicians and place successful business men & women in their place.

bush was a better president. the 2007 values is about when the democrats took control of congress.

The thought might be that "Mission Accomplished" is a bad joke. The reality is that it is dead serious.

Obama/Pelosi/Reid and their band of merry mischief-makers have been working toward this goal from the beginning.

Now here's the Organizer-in-Chief telling us it's all our fault:

Republicans will make US a 'Third World' country: Obama

It's a typical liberal-left propaganda tactic: tell people your opponents are doing what you're doing. Maybe that way, when Obama succeeds in ruining the country, and finds out that the People don't like the result, he can blame the GOP.

Bad as Obama is, Andy Jackson is still in the running for the Worst President ever. Along with Carter.
