    There is no recovery. Dont let the numbers fool you... they have been cooked for a long time now. Obama has wrecked the economy and added over 5 trillion to the deficit with nothing to show for it. In the first two years he could have passed any bill he wanted but didnt even think about jobs. His "laser like" focus was on the golf course and lavish vacations while Americans lost their jobs. He is the biggest clown to ever sit in the Presidency... and he is done come November. I just hope there is something left to recover.

    Obama's 2nd term includes plans for a "New Deal"-style overhaul of the economy replete with the creation of a National Infrastructure Development Bank to oversee government control of the financial system; a massive, government-run jobs program to coincide with "paycheck fairness"; full amnesty for illegal aliens; defunding of the U.S. military while channeling Pentagon money to "clean" energy initiatives; a new, multibillion dollar "green" stimulus; and implementing Obamacare in measures nearly impossible to reverse. And that is just the start.

    OBAMA MUST GO!!!!!!!

    Here is an important finding of the House Judiciary Committee...

    Beginning in 2011, the Committee has learned that Obama administration officials at the Department of Homeland Security started to include numbers from the Alien Transfer Exit Program (ATEP) in its year-end removal numbers.

    The ATEP is a joint effort between ICE and Customs and Border Protection that transfers illegal immigrants apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border to another point along the Southwest border for removal. But it is illegitimate to count illegal immigrants apprehended by the Border Patrol along the Southwest border as ICE removals. There are no penalties or bars attached when illegal immigrants are sent back via ATEP and they can simply attempt re-entry.

    When ATEP removals are subtracted from ICE’s deportation numbers, the 2011 removal total would drop from approximately 397,000 to roughly 360,000 and the 2012 removal total would drop from about 334,000 to around 263,000 (annualized this is estimated to be a drop from about 400,000 to 315,000).

    This means that ICE removals for this year will be about 14% below 2008 (369,000) and 19% below 2009 (389,000). So it is officially proven that while the Obama regime touts themselves as historic immigration enforcement achievers, the truth is they have cooked the books and broadcast this lie to the American public. They have done this with the full assistance of liberal media like CNN, ABC, and the Huffington Post which you can count on not to report the revelations contained within these reports!

    If anyone tells you that Obama has deported more illegal immigrants than any prior president you tell them that is a lie and that removals for 2012 are down 14% below 2008 levels before Obama took office!

    It is terribly unfortunate that American citizens have to form a political revolt against the powers that be to try to stop the invasion of our homeland. We must face powers that have used their influence to corrupt our own government and mass media against the best interest of the American public and against the truth.

    Very few things in America can improve for us while such lies as these stand as truth.

    Barack Obama:
    Alias Barry Soetoro pawns himself as Barack Obama, the humanitarian, the POTUS, the campaign for hope and change. But we know better. Barry is a radical Marxist who was raised by Communist parents and Communist grandparents. His mentors were known Communists, his contacts in college were strictly Marxists supporters, Marxist professors and a group of Pakistani activists as stated in his book, “Dreams from My Father”.

    Barack Obama, tell us about Frank Marshall Davis or Bill Ayers. Surely you remember Mr. Davis. After all, your mother knew him all too well. Mr. Ayers, a known terrorist, responsible for at least a dozen bombings, helped your early Illinois campaign by raising money, thru his organization Underground Weather. Tell us about your trip to Pakistan (’81) with Pakistani Wahid Hamid.

    Share with us your ideals of socialism; after all you’re a member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), referred as the “New Party”. Please tell us why you have been influenced by the writings of Karl Marx, the prelude to Communism. Share with us your association with Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Do you justify this man’s message by condemning our country by saying, “God bless America? No, God Damn America?” Was this a forethought supporting your belief in Marxism?

    Are these the individuals who have inspired you to public office? Are these the individuals who have inspired you to plot against the United States? Are they the people for whom you’ve entrusted your Muslim faith?

    Please tell us why you mocked the Holy Bible and Jesus’ “Sermon on the Mount”, calling the sermon a radical message. You have mocked Christianity and this country. Barack Obama, you have betrayed this nation and all its’ people. Your skin is dark because of your race, but your soul is darker because of your deception.

    United States of America………………you didn’t build it Barack Obama.
