We have these things called submarines. They go underwater - like so many home loans since Obama took office.

NEW TV AD: “Highest Responsibility”


Despite what President Obama says, our Navy is smaller now than at any time since 1917. It’s the highest responsibility of the President of the United States to maintain the safety of the American people. Mitt Romney will not make our future less certain by cutting our military: mi.tt/T8FAOa

Princeton Economist: Obama Campaign Is Misrepresenting My Study on Romney's Tax Plan

Once again, Obama is lying. This comment from the economist that Obama quotes is proof that Obama is lying.

Has Our President Failed?

This blog was written by someone else, but he did a good job of putting together some statistics to make his point. I urge others to see his blog page and look at his facts. I’ve only covered the 18 primary points here. 


The following are 18 statistics that prove that the economy has not improved since Barack Obama became the president of the United States….
#1 Today there are 88 million working age Americans that are not employed and that are not looking for employment. That is an all-time record high.
#2 When Barack Obama was elected, the percentage of unemployed Americans that had been out of work for more than 52 weeks was less than 15%. Today, it is above 30%.
#3 There are 1.2 million fewer jobs in America today than there were when Barack Obama was inaugurated.
#4 When Barack Obama first took office, the number of “long-term unemployed workers” in the United States was approximately 2.6 million. Today, that number is sitting at 5.6 million.
#5 The average duration of unemployment in the United States is hovering close to an all-time record high.
#6 During the Obama administration, worker health insurance costs have risen by 23 percent.
#7 Since Barack Obama has been president, the average price of a gallon of gasoline in the United States has increased by 90 percent.
#8 Since Barack Obama has been president, home values in the United States have declined by another 13 percent.
#9 Under Barack Obama, new home sales in the U.S. set a brand new all-time record low in 2009, they set a brand new all-time record low again in 2010, and they set a brand new all-time record low once again during 2011.
#10 Since Barack Obama took office, the number of Americans living in poverty has risen by more than 6 million.
#11 Since Barack Obama entered the White House, the number of Americans on food stamps has increased from 32 million to 46 million.
#12 The amount of money that the federal government gives directly to Americans has increased by 32 percent since Barack Obama entered the White House.
#13 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the percentage of Americans living in “extreme poverty” is now sitting at an all-time high.
#14 When Barack Obama first took office, an ounce of gold was going for about $850. Today an ounce of gold costs more than $1700 an ounce.
#15 Since Barack Obama became president, the size of the U.S. national debt has increased by 44 percent.
#16 During Barack Obama’s first two years in office, the U.S. government added more to the U.S. national debt than the first 100 U.S. Congresses combined.
#17 During the Obama administration, the U.S. government has accumulated more debt than it did from the time that George Washington took office to the time that Bill Clinton took office.
#18 The U.S. national debt has been increasing by an average of more than 4 billion dollars per day since the beginning of the Obama administration.

$5 Trillion

The Obama campaign is lying about Mitt Romney’s economic plans. Obama’s own policies and actions have been a disaster. He has no positive ideas on which to run, so he must run by trying to scare people about Mitt Romney. For the 23 million Americans out of work, nothing about Mitt Romney can be as scary as what we already know about Obama. Instead, we see Mitt Romney’s competence and good character as a reason for real hope.

NEW TV AD: “Melanie” 


Melanie McNamara voted for Barack Obama in 2008. She believed he would lead our country to prosperity. Four years later, she’s voting for Mitt Romney because she wants to make sure that our economy is growing again: mi.tt/QPIyHA
