November 18, 2010 Politisite 0

Obama and the Democrats old stand bye for when things don’t go as they wanted.  Bushes Fought! Though some critics and observers are suggesting the Ghailani verdict — he was acquited of all but one of more than 280 charges — weakens the president’s call for civilian criminal trials for Guantanamo detainees, a senior administration official pushes back: “He was convicted by a jury of a count which carries a […]

November 10, 2010 Politisite 0

The Interior Department‘s inspector general says the White House edited a drilling safety report in a way that made it falsely appear that scientists and experts supported the idea of the administration’s six-month ban on new drilling. The inspector general says the editing changes resulted “in the implication that the moratorium recommendation had been peer reviewed.” But it hadn’t been. The scientists were only asked to review new safety measures […]

White House: 9% unemployment until 2012, Stimulus Failed

July 24, 2010 Politisite 0

How many remember the President saying that the Stimulus will bring down unemployment to 8%? He also touted that if the Stimulus was not enacted it would take our economic crisis to catastrophe. From where Americans are sitting, it appears the the Stimulus has done very little to change our economic forecast. In fact, the status has been revised down several times already this year.
Minorities have taken the biggest hit, even though our President insisted that the Stimulus would be far reaching down to the average worker. It appears that the Presidents statements have been nothing more then political Rhetoric as the poorest among us continue to be hit the hardest. The White House now says Unemployment will stay at or above 9% until the election in 2012. Interesting enough, The President said that the stimulus was “front loaded”meaning that the majority of the economic change would come in it’s first 2 years. It doesn’t take an economic degree to see that has not come to fruition.
