Hold the President accountable

Monday, September 24, 2012

The unemployment rate has been over 8% for over three years now despite President Obama spending a trillion of our tax dollars on an ill-conceived stimulus plan. Our debt is skyrocketing, and the economy is stagnant. Previous recoveries from deep recessions have been far more robust. This recovery is so anemic that to many of us it doesn't feel like much of a recovery at all. President Obama says the private sector is "doing fine" and that it's government that is hurting. We cannot keep going in this direction...

It's time to hold Obama accountable just like he asked us to when he spoke to Matt Lauer in 2009. He told us that if he didn't have the economy turned around that his presidency "would be a one-term proposition."
