Obama’s (plan) works only if the goal is to cripple the country.

Obama Says His Plan Has Worked, But The Data Say No

Apparently he “never said that”…. Yahoo  and AP gets to work for the Obama Campaign

Some say Obama was merely referring to Clinton policies. But he clearly said “our plan” and began to brag about saving the auto industry and refusing to “let Detroit go bankrupt.” So “our plan” is actually Obama’s. So we ask: Has the plan of a man who said his brief private-sector job experience was like working “behind enemy lines” really worked?…

Since Obama was sworn in, the unemployment rate has never been below 7.8%, its level the first day he walked into the White House. It has been 8% or higher for 41 straight months, and the Congressional Budget Office expects it to stay above that level through 2014.

Last month, at least 5.3 million Americans had been without jobs for more than six months. When Obama took office, only 2.6 million had gone jobless for more than half a year. Today about 30% of the unemployed have been looking for work for a year or more.

Worse, if the millions who have stopped looking for work because they can’t find any were still counted, the real unemployment number would be closer to 17%.
