Obama's Lowlights (10/10/11)

Economy – The economy added 103 thousand jobs in September, but the unemployment rate stays at 9.1%. PETA - Prompted by reports that a man was bitten by a shark on Saturday while spearfishing in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Anna Maria Island, PETA plans to run an outdoor advertising campaign on benches and billboards near the island that makes the point that the deadliest killers in the water aren't sharks—they're humans. The ad shows a human "drumstick" hanging out of a shark's mouth next to the words "Payback Is Hell. Go Vegan." California – The Los Angeles Times reports many state employees are allowed to collect both a pay check and pension benefits. Janeane Garafalo – On Olbermann, Garafalo made the claim that anyone who supports Herman Cain is a racist. Frivolous Lawsuits – Obama has suggested that unemployed people should sue companies for discrimination if they refuse to hire them. Obama – According to Obama, America has gone “soft”. I have to agree with Obama, but what causes American citizens to go soft? People becoming dependent on government subsidies causes American citizens to become soft – Obamacare and extended unemployment are two examples under Obama’s watch. Bless You – A California teacher is on record saying he is deducting points off students’ grades for saying “Bless You” after a person sneezes. Valarie Jarrett – The senior White House aide says the purpose of government “is to lift people out of poverty”. The poverty level has increased by 2.5% under Obama – in 2010, over 15% of Americans lived below the poverty line. ObamaCare - A new study by the Kaiser Family Foundation underlines that many of the promises surrounding President Obama’s health care legislation remain unfulfilled. Anwar Al-Awlaki – The U.S. born terrorist was killed in Yemen last week by a drone attack. The White House put a death bounty on Al-Awlaki in 2009. Ironically, the Obama administration has called out the Bush administration for human rights injustices for using enhanced interrogation techniques. Where is the liberal outrage over Obama ordering the execution of a U.S. born citizen? How is this not a violation of Al-Awlaki civil rights according to liberal philosophies? Let’s at least be consistent in our views! Colorado – Tax hikes are on the November election cycle. The state wants to increase the sales tax from 2.9 to 3 percent and the state income tax from 4.63 to 5 percent. Fast and Furious – A White House document was uncovered (a map) that specifically illustrates ATF gun trafficking from the U.S. to Mexico, but Obama and Holder still claim to have known nothing about the operation. Occupy Wall Street – Over 700 liberal protestors were arrested on the Brooklyn Bridge. The group was protesting Wall Street greed, but where is the outrage over the greed of all those green companies that are costing the taxpayers billions of dollars each year in loans. I wonder what the media coverage would have been like had 700 Tea Partiers were arrested when they protested on the Capital Building. Robert Johnson – The founder of Black Entertainment Television disagrees with Obama’s willingness to raise taxes on the wealthy. Obama – In a recent interview Obama admitted that Americans are no better off than 4 years ago (in fact, they are worse off – higher unemployment etc.) and he also said he had no regrets over giving Solyndra 535 million taxpayer funded loans. At least he is not blaming Bush. My Book: Is America Dying? (, Barnes and Noble)
