Obama Fail visual aids:
But wait, there’s more!
Two more charts via the NY Times (more at link):
Across the country, in almost every demographic, Americans earn less today than they did in June 2009, when the [Obama]recovery technically started.
“Since the so-called recovery began in June 2009, the median household income has fallen by 4.8 percent. That’s more than it fell during the recession (2.6 percent). “Almost every group is worse off than it was three years ago.”
Good morning America!
Via Rasmussen Reports:
A president’s Job Approval rating is one of the best indicators for assessing his chances of reelection. Typically, the president’s Job Approval rating on Election Day will be close to the share of the vote he receives. Currently, 44% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president’s job performance. That matches the president’s lowest level of approval in 2012. Approval has been this low on seven days earlier in the year.
Fifty-four percent (54%) at least somewhat disapprove (see trends).
Currently, 22% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way Obama is performing as president. Forty-five percent (45%) Strongly Disapprove, giving him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -23 (see trends). This is the president’s lowest Approval Index rating of 2012.

Needless to say, instant replay is not your friend.

I love the smell of Obama schadenfreude in the morning.

David Axelrod has been dispatched to Boston to deliver a press conference at the State House. This is not just an ordinary campaign launch; it is calculated as a symbolic blow against Romney right in his former stomping grounds.
John Nolte –Breitbart:
Today the Obama campaign, in obvious coordination with the Washington Post, expected to launch a new attack against presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney from the steps of the Massachusetts state capital. The Post wrote a story critical of Romney’s time as governor, Axelrod intended to ride that nifty wave into a broadside, that unlike all their others, might actually stick to Romney — but as you can see in the video below, the Romney camp out-maneuvered them big-time:
As we saw in this year’s Republican primary, Romney is a tough customer who doesn’t allow the media to set the rules. And if you remember, even though the media buried this story, last week Romney had an event pretty much spoiled by Occupy-style hecklers organized by the Obama campaign.
More fun at the expense of the Obama via Romney campaign spokesman Ryan Williams:
Ouch! This is gonna leave a noticeable mark on Obama’s campaign.
(NY Post) –Bill Clinton thought so little of President Obama — mocking him as an “amateur” — that he pressed his wife last summer to quit her job as secretary of state and challenge him in the primaries, a new book claims,
The title of [Ed] Klein’s explosive, unauthorized bio of Obama, “The Amateur” (Regnery Publishing), was taken directly from Bill Clinton’s bombshell criticism of the president, the author said.
“Barack Obama,” Bill Clinton said, according to book excerpts, “is an amateur.”
The withering criticism is incredible, given the fact that Bill Clinton is actively campaigning for Obama’s re-election.
But according to the book, Bill Clinton unloaded on Obama and pressed Hillary to run against her boss during a gathering in the ex-president’s home office in Chappaqua last August that included longtime friends, Klein said.
“The economy’s a mess, it’s dead flat. America has lost its Triple-A rating . . . You know better than Obama does,” Bill said.
Obama, Bill Clinton said, “doesn’t know how to be president” and is “incompetent.”
This is a test for Obama supporters democrat, republican or independents, to see if he passes the test as a good president based on policies on the job, without political excuses or fake arguments.
Obama joking around about his failed stimulus recovery, while the US economy was burning.

After three years with unemployment topping 8 percent, the U.S. has seen the longest period of high unemployment since the Great Depression, the Congressional Budget Office noted in a report issued today.
And, despite some recent good news on the economic front, the CBO is still predicting that unemployment will remain above 8 percent until 2014. The report also notes that, including those who haven’t sought work in the past four weeks and those who are working part-time but seeking full-time employment, the unemployment rate would be 15 percent.

“Here at this site, Solyndra expects to make enough solar panels each year to generate 500 megawatts of electricity. And over the lifetime of this expanded facility, that could be like replacing as many as eight coal-fired power plants. It’s also worth noting, to achieve this doubling of our share of solar capacity, we actually need to make four times as many solar panels, because other countries are adding capacity, too. Nobody in this race is standing still.”

Obama’s pet green shell company went belly up after having received over a half of a BILLION dollars in taxpayer monies. And adding insult to injury, they have now been caught on tape destroying MILLIONS of dollars of parts.
And YOU PAID for IT.
CBS San Francisco has the scoop:
FREMONT (CBS 5) — After filing for bankruptcy last year, Fremont solar company Solyndra still owes American taxpayers half a billion dollars. But CBS 5 caught them destroying millions of dollars worth of parts.
At Solyndra’s sprawling complex in Fremont, workers in white jumpsuits were unwrapping brand new glass tubes used in solar panels last week. They are the latest, most cutting-edge solar technology, and they are being thrown into dumpsters.
Forklifts brought one pallet after another piled high with the carefully packaged glass. Slowly but surely it all ended up shattered.
And it’s not a few loads. Hundreds of thousands of tubes on shrink-wrapped pallets will meet a similar demise.
Solyndra paid at least $2 million for the specialized glass. A CBS 5 crew found one piece lying in the parking lot. Solyndra still owes the German company that made the tubes close to another $8 million.
So why is a bankrupt company that owes a fortune to creditors, including American taxpayers, throwing away millions of dollars worth of assets?
