And also remember that in 2009 and 2010, Democrats controlled both the Senate and the House of Representatives, so laying blame on those "Wascally Wepublicans" won't wash.
All of his economic promises were based on projections; on models. Obama chose to use a model which assumes, despite a body of contrary evidence, that every $1 of government spending will yield $1.50 or more in higher GDP. Based on the model Obama claimed that he has "created or saved" several million jobs. He modeled it, therefore it is.
And what was in Obama's State of the Union address? More what may have happened, more projections, more grandiose non-specific rhetoric, more of what he defines as fair, more class warfare. Obama talked about his "blueprint" for revitalizing the economy that he says will work for everyone, not just the wealthy; a rebirth for US manufacturing, bolstering domestic energy production, and training workers. He also talked about the principles he brought to public service since he began his career in public service. You know, the same principles that gave almost 20 percent of Obamacare waivers to Nancy Pelosi's district, the ones that led him to say nothing after Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. called Tea Party people "sons of bitches." The ones that spend taxpayer dollars so his wife and children can have a few more hours of vacation time.
In short, more goal post moving. Some of you may argue that my goal post analogy is not a valid one. So be it, but it's hard to argue against and/or dismiss the facts of the promises on which Obama did not deliver. As Ronald Reagan said, "Facts are stubborn things."
But that's just my opinion.
