Obama Lies – Did Not Create Two Million Jobs During His Time on the Golf Course
President Obama continues to lie about creating two million new jobs. His desperate reliance on the “Big Lie” repeated often is failing as numbers turn against his re-election.
The Big Lie – 2 Million Jobs Created During Obama Term
Barack Obama played 104 rounds of golf during his term in office, stopping only when the presidential campaign forced him to get on the road.
During his term in office and time on the golf course, 1,476 soldiers and American support staff died in theatre, and millions of Americans lost jobs.
Obama’s Interior Department stopped leasing land for new oil exploration, and refused to comply with court orders to permit Gulf oil drilling, even in shallow water. Obama’s EPA has issued a torrent of regulations (and has many more lined up for after the election). The EPA regulations are closing down power plants and coal mines, putting miners and utility workers out of work.
Obama himself has spent bad-mouthing America and businessmen who invest and innovate to create jobs. As a result, a lot of capital is sitting out of the market, and many jobs have gone uncreated.
In a video collage assembled by Mofo Politics, you’ll see Rick Santelli taking the time to add up jobs number revisions from BLS. The totals show a loss of 61,000 jobs since Obama became president.
