Quote Of The Week

“We have begun to pick ourselves up and dust ourselves off,” Obama said. “I’m pleased with the progress we’ve made, but I’m not satisfied. I’m confident in the future, but I’m not content with the present.”


Barack Obama on his first 100 days.

Let's look at this progress he is proud of:

Labor Department: Jobless Rates Rise in Nation's Metro Areas

Unemployment rates rose in all of the nation's largest metropolitan areas for the third straight month in March, the Labor Department announced on Wednesday.

Unemployment Up Again In Chicago In March

But Many Cities Fare Much Worse

House Passes $3.4 Trillion Budget, Boosting Obama's Agenda

With the economy in recession and the bailout of the financial sector costing hundreds of billions of dollars, deficits would rocket to $1.7 trillion for the ongoing budget year, dipping to a still-astonishing $1.2 trillion in 2010. The national debt would rise from today's $11.2 trillion level to $17 trillion at the end of 2014.

Economy Shrinks 6.1% in First Quarter

Obama Orders Review of New York Flight as Cost Put at $328,835

April 28 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama ordered a review of a publicity-photo shoot with one of the planes that serves as Air Force One that cost taxpayers $328,835 and caused a furor in New York City.

Phoenix leads nation in home price declines in February

A new report shows home prices across the country continued to drop in February, and Phoenix has the unfortunate designation of loss leader.

Phoenix home prices fell 35 percent from February 2008 to February 2009, according to the new S&P/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index. That’s the largest decline of any of the 20 largest cities in the U.S. In addition, Phoenix home prices are down 51 percent from their peak.

Now I realize he inherited a mess from the Democratic controlled Congress but I don't think I would be talking about progress just yet.

I'll just leave you with Obama's assessment of his first 100 days.

“we’ve begun the work of remaking America.”

Obama's even beginning to believe his own lies.

no wonder FOX refused to air his 100 day anniversary prime-time presser. they aired "Lie to Me" instead and got a higher viewer rating. Nielsons report that his viewership has dropped 29% since his last prime-time presser.

He is getting more dangerous by the day.

Greywolfe said...

Stormin, he's ALWAYS believed his own lies.

Shoprat, makes you think about hoarding copies of the Constitution, weapons, and ammo. Being a rightwing nut, I already am. :(

Leslie said...

Yes, Chuck...he is happy with his progress [of destroying our country] but isn't done yet...he has a LOT more to do to destroy capitalism, freedom, and the republic of which we live in...

I always look forward to seeing what your quote of the week is.

Have a good week!

Larry T. Durham said...

Yep, we "picked ourselves up, dusted ourselves off"...and were promptly run over by a government made truck.

How the Obamatrons can look at the first 100 days as anything but a disaster is beyond laughable.

Chuck said...

Thanks all. With all he's accomplished it's high fives all around.

King of New York Hacks said...

I think he'll be hosting a Jerry Springer type talk show by the end of his brief tenure.

Z said...

I want OUR America back, thank you very much.

Chuck said...

King, welcome and thanks for stopping by. Funny. Just imagine the chairs flying.

Z, we'll get it back

Here's BHO's modus operandi:

"If the economy isn't recovering, it's Bush's fault for handing me problems. If the economy is recovering, I'm the one who saved it."

Clever strategy, really. And a lot of people don't see through it.

mksviews said...

Ah hussein and his first 100 days, what a mess. And to think folks, this socialist is just getting started. Heaven help us all.

It's a similar joke out here too, i try not to dwell too much on it.

Chuck said...

AOW, this is his bipartisan approach he was talking about

MK, it's going to be a long 4 years

DaBlade said...

Great post Chuck! A long four years indeed. That's quite a lot of carnage in his "good start". Scary to think where he will go from here.
