Yearning for the â€˜brinkâ€™
By: Neil Braithwaite
Based on Americaâ€™s economy today versus where it was eighteen months ago, before Obama â€œbrought it back from the brinkâ€ – I prefer the â€œbrinkâ€.
Now that we can actually measure the results of Obamaâ€™s economic policies, it seems perfectly clear that America has been on the wrong track and is far worse off today.
And while Obama makes the rounds on his â€œSummer of recoveryâ€ tour reminding America over and over ad nauseam that he â€œbrought us back from the brink of an economic crisis,â€ he is also unwittingly reminding America just exactly what that â€œbrinkâ€ looked like before he brought us back from it.
Since the brink, Obamaâ€™s economic policies have accumulated almost $3 trillion in debt, increased unemployment by almost 5%, â€œlost or destroyedâ€ over three million jobs, and forced millions of people to give up looking for work all together.
Iâ€™m not sure about you, but the â€œbrinkâ€ is starting to look pretty darn good right now.
