“Welcome to the Recovery!”
Remember when Obama’s Treasury Secretary
Timothy Geithner trumpeted this condescending blast to Americans
in the New York Times last August?
I don’t know about you, but I found it simply
Here’s what Geithner said:
The economic rescue package that
President Obama put in place was essential to turning the
Actions since the fall of 2007 of the
Federal Reserve, the White House and Congress helped save
8.5 million jobs and increased gross domestic product by 6.5
percent relative to what would have happened had we done
Government action delivered a powerful
bang for the buck…
We have put the American economy on a
firmer foundation for future growth….
We now know Geithner’s spin was only a
stalking horse for Obama’s latest bid to convince Americans
recovery is just around the corner.
But the fact is, recovery in NOT just around
the corner. America’s economy is in deep, deep trouble.
Whistling past the grave yard, as wild
government spending and liberal policies dig the grave deeper by
the day, is no economic plan.
It’s a recipe for economic disaster!
What’s more, the national media will never
tell the truth about Obama’s failed economic record.
In fact, they’re hell-bent determined
to perpetuate Obama’s fairy tale of economic recovery, a massive
fraud of the highest order.
They want Americans to believe the economy is
on the up-and-up, new “green” jobs just around the corner, and
the doubling of the price of gasoline only Big Oil’s fault.
And the national media gladly echo Obama’s
latest tale: full recovery will “take us several years… we're
moving in the right direction.” Stay the course.
But to stay the course would be national
suicide. Here are the facts about Obama’s record on the economy:
- At Obama’s Inauguration, the price at the
pump for gas was $1.83. It has more than DOUBLED since and
now some say it could even TRIPLE to $5 or $6 a gallon!
- The official U.S. unemployment rate has
jumped back up to 9%. But this pathetic number only puts a
smiley face on the real misery. Unemployment spikes to a
whopping 15.9% when one counts Americans who’ve grown so
discouraged they’ve given up even looking for work or those
who’ve settled for part-time work (Bureau of Labor
- According to Zillow, home prices have
plummeted “at their fastest rate since the Lehman collapse.”
Now called “zombie homeowners” because they’re financially
walking dead, an all-time record “16.3 million families are
upside-down on their home loans.”
- A study by the New America Foundation
finds “8.5 million people receiving unemployment checks and
over 40 million receiving food stamps. At the current pace
of job creation, the economy won't return to full employment
- Wal-Mart’s CEO says its customers are
“running out of money” with purchases “dropping off by the
end of the month even more than last year"
- The Wall Street Journal says “the dollar
today is lower than at any time since major currencies began
floating in 1973. It is 13% lower than it was 30 years ago
and 28% below its 2002 recent peak.”
- Standard & Poor’s, the independent credit
rating agency, downgraded the outlook for the United States
to negative from stable, saying within two years there's at
least a one-in-three chance it could lower its long-term
The fact is, Obamanomics are a
disaster – the meltdown after the earthquake.
That’s why it’s so important for you
and the League of American Voters to tell every American the
truth about Obama’s failed record on the economy.
This is the inconvenient truth Obama’s so
desperate to hide. And the League
is preparing to launch a national campaign effort to educate
millions of Americans.
We believe every American deserves the honest
truth about Obama’s REAL economic record, and how his liberal
policies are digging the grave deeper by the day.
The League’s national campaign will expose the
lies and reveal the truth about:
- How Obamacare raises taxes by half a
trillion dollars, while devastating the highest quality
healthcare the world has ever known.
- Why Obama’s failed stimulus plan was
nothing but a political slush fund for bloated public
- How many jobs Obama’s stimulus really
“saved or created.”
- How Obama’s fantasy of “green” jobs and
hatred of “Big Oil” are really to blame for $4 dollar
- Why Obama’s dithering and refusal to
FULLY extend the Bush tax cuts nearly sent America into an
America must learn the truth about the
REAL Obama economic record. The national media won’t tell them.
So the League will.

ads, print advertisements, and with a massive internet campaign,
the League will expose Obama’s REAL economic record.

P.S. -- Obama says were “moving in the right
direction” with recovery just around the corner. But at Obama’s
inauguration, it cost $1.83 a gallon to fill the tank. Today, it
has more than DOUBLED. Un- and under-employment is a whopping
15.9%. Home prices are sinking “at their fastest rate since the
Lehman collapse.” Standard & Poor’s has downgraded the U.S.
outlook to negative, and Wal-Mart says it customers are “running
