With the battle lines of the 2012 Presidential race beginning to form–from Bain Capital to the War on Women–President Obama took time last week to give the commencement address at Barnard College, the private women’s liberal art college whose brother-school, Columbia, is Obama’s alma mater. The speech was delivered well: the President worked the crowd, hit his punchlines, and delivered his sobering anecdotes. While battered from a turmoil-ridden first term in office, Obama nevertheless displayed a familiar, yet highly concerning, charisma for the onset of his re-election efforts.
He began by reminding the recent graduates that he too faced a hard economy leaving college. As a member of the class of 1983, the President told students he shared “a lot in common with all of you.” However, the attempt here to present a relatable, shared struggle stumbled upon the reality of two very different recessions. Barack Obama entered an economy shaped by the Reagan recovery. In 1983 the nation was adding roughly 400,000 jobs per month, GDP was growing around seven-percent, and the unemployment rate was steadily declining.
I am Obama and here is the truth since I stole the presidency in 2008:
Unemployment has risen from 7.8% to over 15% since Obama took office.
The real U6 unemployment rate is approximately 19%.
National debt has risen from $10.7 Trillion to over $15.3 Trillion – Jan 2009- Mar 2012 US Treasury Dept.
Obama has accumulated over $ 5 trillion dollars in debt in 4 years.
Gas prices have risen from $1.84/gallon to over $3.79/gallon – Jan 2009 to Mar 2012 ABC News

Obama stated Water Boarding is Torture, now I am taking credit for killing Osama when waterboarding and other interogating techniques were used to obtain information to find Osama. Those techniques were used when George Bush was President but not under my watch. I killed Osama not Bush!
Obama is a Muslim, hates America, the U.S. Constitution and was born in Kenya.
According to The Wall Street Journal, when you add up what the government spends on entitlement programs – like unemployment benefits, food stamps, Medicaid and Social Security – those payments make up 66% of the federal budget!
In other words, well OVER HALF the money that the government spends is in the form of handouts… money that is taken from one segment of the population and redistributed to another.
But that’s not the whole story…
In fact, according to the Heritage Foundation, 152 million Americans – 49.5% of the population – paid NO federal income tax in 2009!
That means half the population is living off the other half!
How’s That Hope and Change nonsense working for you America?
Wake up America before it is too late.
Vote for BO once and you were an idiot. Vote for him twice and you are a traitor to America.
