Barack Obama Truth Team report for May 6, 2012.
Barack’s birth certificate, the Fast and Furious scandal, the Solyndra scandal, Obamacare, all these are purely distractions, invented or hyped to give the GOP reasons to attack the President which they intended to do, no matter the circumstances. The real issue this election cycle is the economy and the Republicans have done everything they can to slow the recovery. Today the voters in France and Greece will give their verdict on the austerity that the GOP wants to impose on the US. I’m betting that austerity over there will be voted out, and we don’t want it over here.
Jobs gained in the private economy are being lost in the public sector as cash-strapped states layoff thousands of employees. What this economy needs is more stimulus so that consumers feel confident enough to spend and so that they have money to spend creating demand. In normal times if the GOP were in power, they would be stimulating the economy to win election or re-election. After the election, the GOP usually induces a recession to check inflation at the insistence of the 1%. Then the 99% would suffer through the recession. If the GOP were to win in November and institute austerity, I believe that we will experience the Great Depression 2.
