Yearning for the ‘brink’


By: Neil Braithwaite

Based on America’s economy today versus where it was eighteen months ago, before Obama “brought it back from the brink” – I prefer the “brink”.

Now that we can actually measure the results of Obama’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 “Summer of recovery” tour reminding America over and over ad nauseam that he “brought us back from the brink of an economic crisis,” he is also unwittingly reminding America just exactly what that “brink” looked like before he brought us back from it.

Since the brink, Obama’s economic policies have accumulated almost $3 trillion in debt, increased unemployment by almost 5%, “lost or destroyed” over three million jobs, and forced millions of people to give up looking for work all together.

I’m not sure about you, but the “brink” is starting to look pretty darn good right now.
