First lady Michelle Obama began her visit to New Hampshire yesterday at a private fundraising luncheon, greeting prominent business leaders and politicians. She ended it by hugging voters in a sweaty gymnasium in Manchester.
Her message – whether delivered in a sunny living room overlooking Squam Lake or to a crowd of 1,575 at the University of Southern New Hampshire – remains the same.
She paints a picture of President Obama as the son of a single mother trying to make ends meet, as a newlywed with monthly student loan bills higher than his mortgage and as a president who faces problems with no easy answers.
"As president, all you have to guide you, truly, are your life experiences. All you have to lead you are your values," she said. "And what I remind people is we all know who my husband is, and we all know what he stands for."
Just like he did against Hillary Clinton, President Obama now continues to spread dishonest attacks about Mitt Romney to distract from his failed record. Even though fact check after fact check have found his claims to be false, he continues to not tell the truth to the American people. It is no wonder why our country has lost confidence in his leadership.
Last week, with millions out of work, homes falling into foreclosure, and the middle class getting squeezed more and more every day, President Obama inexplicably said "the private sector is doing fine." If President Obama can’t see that our economy is broken, how can he fix it?
"You have to balance your budget, or you go broke. To make government simpler, smaller, and smarter we have to take government itself and make it more productive and more efficient. We can’t keep buying and spending and passing on debts to our kids. American strength is the best ally peace has ever known. The world needs a strong America. Our families need a strong America. The future needs a strong America. This is a critical time for us." — Mitt Romney
Despite President Obama’s attempts to distract from his failed record, the American people remember. These are stories from the Obama economy.
President Obama’s attacks on free enterprise have triggered a backlash among many—even among those in his own party. In just the past few days, everyone from former advisors to his own surrogates have criticized the Obama campaign’s attack on free enterprise. With no record to run on, it is no surprise that the Obama campaign has resorted to misleading attacks that have been disavowed by its own supporters.
Non-union Delphi employees were given less favorable benefits than union employees during the auto bailout and GM restructuring. Despite Vice President Joe Biden saying that "most did fine," they don’t agree.
Today, in the Obama economy, twenty-three million Americans are out of work, underemployed, or have stopped looking for work. These are the stories behind the statistics. These are a few of the twenty-three million.
Yesterday, President Obama launched his campaign by telling Americans not to ask if they are better off than they were four years ago, but how they’ll be tomorrow. This follows a jobs report that found more than 340,000 Americans dropping out of the labor force and an unemployment rate that remains unacceptably high.
In 2008, President Obama said he measures progress by how many people can find a job. Today, the unemployment rate is still over eight percent and nearly twenty-three million Americans are unemployed, underemployed, or have stopped looking for work.
