Video: Obama’s Math Doesn’t Add Up

Posted: October 18, 2012 at 4:54 am   /   by

In the second presidential debate, Barack Obama said that Mitt Romney’s math doesn’t add up. But the real math that doesn’t add up can be found in the economic realities of Barack Obama’s four years as president. America cannot afford another four like this.

    I’ve heard that incomes have fallen $4,000 to $4,500 not just $3,000! Powerful music underscores the failures of Barack Obama hm, hm, hm.

    1. @sleepergirl Yes, there are different numbers depending on how the calculation is done, and they do go from $2,500 up to as high as $4,500. No matter how you slice it, there has been a serious decline. That is not what happens in a recovery.

    Great video, great message … really hits the spot.  Obama is desperate … he’s making all sorts of false assertions, pulling numbers from the air and counting on the press to ignore the falsehoods back him up.  After Benghazi, that may be breaking down.

    Great video, great message … really hits the spot.  Obama is desperate … he’s making all sorts of false assertions, pulling numbers from the air and counting on his collaborative press to ignore his falsehoods or back him up.  After Benghazi, that may finally be breaking down.  
    Next debate is foreign policy, where Obama has offered all the leadership of a whirling dervish.  Get ready for flailing alibis and spasms of blame-shifting.

    Not only do his numbers not follow regular math but now we have the new jobs numbers for this week. They are at no surprise up! We have to get this election over and dig in to fix this mess.

    1. @smuehling Yes, Romney will have a steep hill to climb, but I have faith that he is up to the task.
