Dudes and Dudettes…have you seen the latest Newsweek cover this morning? When I saw it I had to look out my window to see if any pigs were flying by. Editor Tina Brown must have had a moment of clarity and economic stability for a change. When the cover says ‘Hit the Road, Barack’…that’s more than telling for me when it comes to November, how about you? Hope and Change indeed!

This is what the inside story says via Niall ferguson: ‘Obama’s Gotta Go‘:

Why does Paul Ryan scare the president so much? Because Obama has broken his promises, and it’s clear that the GOP ticket’s path to prosperity is our only hope.

I was a good loser four years ago. “In the grand scheme of history,” I wrote the day after Barack Obama’s election as president, “four decades is not an especially long time. Yet in that brief period America has gone from the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. to the apotheosis of Barack Obama. You would not be human if you failed to acknowledge this as a cause for great rejoicing.”

Despite having been—full disclosure—an adviser to John McCain, I acknowledged his opponent’s remarkable qualities: his soaring oratory, his cool, hard-to-ruffle temperament, and his near faultless campaign organization.

Yet the question confronting the country nearly four years later is not who was the better candidate four years ago. It is whether the winner has delivered on his promises. And the sad truth is that he has not.

In his inaugural address, Obama promised “not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth.” He promised to “build the roads and bridges, the electric grids, and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together.” He promised to “restore science to its rightful place and wield technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality and lower its cost.” And he promised to “transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age.” Unfortunately the president’s scorecard on every single one of those bold pledges is pitiful.

In an unguarded moment earlier this year, the president commented that the private sector of the economy was “doing fine.” Certainly, the stock market is well up (by 74 percent) relative to the close on Inauguration Day 2009. But the total number of private-sector jobs is still 4.3 million below the January 2008 peak. Meanwhile, since 2008, a staggering 3.6 million Americans have been added to Social Security’s disability insurance program. This is one of many ways unemployment is being concealed.

In his fiscal year 2010 budget—the first he presented—the president envisaged growth of 3.2 percent in 2010, 4.0 percent in 2011, 4.6 percent in 2012. The actual numbers were 2.4 percent in 2010 and 1.8 percent in 2011; few forecasters now expect it to be much above 2.3 percent this year.

Unemployment was supposed to be 6 percent by now. It has averaged 8.2 percent this year so far. Meanwhile real median annual household income has dropped more than 5 percent since June 2009. Nearly 110 million individuals received a welfare benefit in 2011, mostly Medicaid or food stamps.

Welcome to Obama’s America: nearly half the population is not represented on a taxable return—almost exactly the same proportion that lives in a household where at least one member receives some type of government benefit. We are becoming the 50–50 nation—half of us paying the taxes, the other half receiving the benefits…

You can read the rest here.

So friends…why do you think Newsweek decided to use this for the cover? Do you sense the tide is turning with the media of varying venues…or do think this is just a once in lifetime type of deal? The phrase ‘It’s the Economy, Stupid‘ comes to mind…among other gripes we have that Dear Leader has inflicted upon this nation via his dictates. The Master of Disaster’s days are numbered as president…I can’t wait for the debates to begin, along with our march to the voting booths come Nov. 6th, it’s going to be a landslide!

Throw in your two-cents…this could be fun for a change.

  1. As much as all of us hate this son-of-a-bitch he has been extremely succesful in what he has tried to accomplish…….

    He wanted to grow the government to unimaginable proportions…..and he succeeded……..

    Obongo wanted to get control of 1/6 of the economy through “ObnogoCare” ……..and he succeeded……….

    Obnogo wanted to make sure that illegals got amnesty and he again has succeeded in giving amnesty to the illegals………

    Obongo wanted more people dependent on the government so now 3.6 million who lost their unemployment due to being cut off are now on disability……….so he succeeded again……….

    Obongo’s foresight is immeasurable compared to our short sightedness…..He has invested billions of dollars in all the failed energy programs that have produced absolutely nothing but may produce energy 500 hundred years from now……again he is showing us just how much foresight he has…….

    Obongo felt that this country is just another country in the world and is no better than any other nation so he is reducing our military so we will be no more powerful than any other nation in the world…..again he is succeeding…….

    Obongo has reduced the size of the entire work force to levels that equate to 1968…..again Obongo has succeeded in reducing the size of the economy…….

    So what’s there not to like about Obongo…..he has brought us to the brink of pure “socialism” isn’t this what America is all about….”fairness” for every person on the planet…….

    Obongo has much more in store for America if he is to win a second term……gun control….more government control of the economy….more and bigger government…..more taxation……more socialism……

    Don’t you want more of Obongo….if you don’t you must be a racist…..

    Women swoon at the sight of his skinny black ass……he is so eloquent when he speaks….er uh, um, er, heh……….

    I think the only argument against our greatest of all presidents is……


  2. Couldn’t agree with ya more. ~

    Remember what they did to Shrillary for the messiah…his time may be coming. Methinks they may not want to be responsible for doing their all to see he was previously elected and may want a hands-off attitude this time ’round. – With the exception of the msDNC Funny Farm of course.

    No matter what, it’s going to be interesting from here on out…plus, we all know the hypocrisy of the msm. They’re only fooling those that want to be fooled.

    Addendum here- What the heck happened to the poster I was replying to with this comment? – Weird.

  3. LOL thats not a halo… its a glow in the dark condom
    ( sorry for the crude reference ladies of AWD but I couldnt resist )

  4. Friends…ya gotta love this!



    Whats with NEWSREEKS motive Do they wan Obama to Go on the Road for more campaingning or did he fail to meet Newsreeks standared of leftists goverment?

  6. Oh puhleeze!


    These people are delusional!

  7. Talk about desperation!


    Anyone listen to the Liar-in-Chief today when he took over the WH Daily Press Briefing? It didn’t go so well for him…for a change.

  8. AngryWhiteFrenchDude says:

    What I don’t get is that here in France, and in Europe in general, Obama’s reelection seems to be pretty damn sure… No one gives any credit to Romney despite all the failures of the socialist clown sitting in the oval office right when I’m writing these lines… Rigged polls?

    • Howdy AWFD…

      Rigged polls a possibility, Rasmussen and Gallop are two to watch.

      • AngryWhiteFrenchDude says:

        Thanks! I’ve just had a look at rasmussenreports.com… Much closer than what Obama-worshippers are claiming on this side of the Atlantic!

        Btw, when one looks at the figures by race, it’s ridiculously biased: if the candidate running for the White House was a Black donkey, would the Black vote for him anyway, ’cause he’s Black?

        If White people were as “wacist” as Black people, McCain would have been elected like an African dictator…

  9. When it comes to Dear Leader and his pals…Birds of a Feather.


    • Romney should incorporate this video into one of his campaign ads to show those dimwit “undecided” voters what Obama and comrades want for America… SOCIALISM/MARXISM

      Hell, how can ANYONE be undecided at this point? Only someone with the mental capacity of a sleepy toddler can’t make up their mind after seeing what Obama and his union cronies have done to make this country and economy worse than it was when he took over.

      The choice is clear.. capitalism or communism. Anyone stupid enough to be undecided at this point shouldnt be allowed to vote…

    • These people should be beat like pup seals… God help the pup seals but not puke individuals whose main goal is destroying the USA.

      • The hottest circle of hell is reserved for these traitors… be glad to club them in the head to give them a one way ticket

  10. BT,

    In all honesty, Newsweek was once a great magazine… that of course was twenty plus years ago. This cover reflects two things in my opinion – 1st… Newsweek is trying to stay afloat in our current economic conditions and there liberal agenda magazine is not selling and 2nd… media outlets are now considering the possibility that Obummer will lose in a landslide and don’t want to be completely embarrassed on November 6th.

    Maybe and just maybe, the news media realizes a second term under Obummer will alter their way of life and retirement savings.

  11. Spurwing Plover says:

    Obama and his fellow demacRATS must leave america and never return

  12. Snake Oiler says:

    How much of the 1.6 billion that Corzine and his Disciples of Madoff supposedly lost actually wound up in the hands of Obunghole and his minions?

    A Democrat, Corzine is among the biggest fundraisers for President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign. He has been the subject of speculation about administration jobs such as Treasury secretary or White House economic adviser, said Christopher Allen, an analyst at Evercore Partners Inc. in New York.

  13. Obongo is afraid that if Mitt Romney wins the election that he will take credit for the good economy that Obongo’s policies will have brought about………

    Obongo sure has a lot of gall to think that his policies will have had anything to do with a vibrantly growing economy when Romney takes over…..talk about audacity…….


    • Bluto,

      Ever see a more arrogant piece of shit currently occupying the White House. Damn hard to believe that Obummer really feels his policies would be Romney’s successes.

  14. I was reading ulsterman report and the white house insider said this cover story was bought and paid for haha. He also bubba is going to get even at dnc with barry. Allof us “racists” arent only ones who hate him, he isnt real popular with your avg democrap

  15. Death to Libtards says:

    If Ronald Reagan himself rose from the grave and took over, it would take him twenty years to set this mess right.

  16. I know the majority of ya won’t check this out…but it’s pretty interesting.


  17. Good for her…for a change. ~
