The Facts

Folks It takes two terms to complete total transformation…
This morning on Fox a woman was interviewed while in line to buy gas for $1.84 a gallon, courtesy of an anti Obama or pro Romney not for profit organization. She admitted that the economy and gas prices have forced her to adjust her and her family’s choices to reflect their reduced buying power.
She went on to say she will definitely vote for Obama because his and Michelle’s social policies are compatible with her values. She added that it takes more than one term to turn an economy around. The woman felt she was sacrificing for America at a time when sacrifice was important; certainly noble and patriotic motives.
Sadly she is mistaken on both counts and her conclusions are typical of the masses that remain loyal to a failed presidency because the administration, aware of its effect on Americans’ standard of living, has promulgated a false narrative specifically to appeal to those Americans who rely on the administration to formulate their opinions and conclusions. This is the Alinsky strategy in effect. This woman has no idea what the Obama’s stand for and it does not take two terms to turn the economy around…It takes two terms to complete the total transformation most Americans have not yet deciphered will mean to them and their children’s future.
Below is a compilation of the economic reality of policies that did not succeed because they could not succeed. The listing does not suggest that these intended results represent the progress Obama is making to transform America, as he promised, from a Constitutional Republic to a Socialist democracy or the significance of the difference.
“We have come too far to turn back now” is significant only because it measures increased poverty, debt, inflation and
unemployment as hallmarks of success. This patriotic woman and the millions who have been taken in by this subterfuge see it as hope and change in progress.
Print the tables out. They are excellent talking points in their own right but tell a much larger, far more sinister story.
