One Year Ago: A Walk Down the Obama Memory Lane

By: AJ

Let’s see what Obama and the Democrats said a year ago…

OBAMA’S 2009 EPIC FAIL of the year: JOBS, JOBS, JOBS

What we’re hearing from them now sounds like more of the same and looks far worse when you consider gas prices, unemployment and foreclosures.

Two years, roughly $2.8 Trillion in tax revenue plus another $3.5 Trillion added to our national debt. Perhaps $6.3 Trillion in two years just wasn’t enough?

It’s time the American people start asking where our $6.3 Trillion went because it certainly didn’t go toward helping America!
