It’s Official: The Left Is Out of Ideas

With economic numbers like these, it’s no wonder that liberal commentators are advising Barack Obama — the man who got elected as the anti-war president — to run for re-election on his record as a war commander.

CNBC reports that the private sector job market is still shrinking, with employers announcing over 37,000 more job cuts this month.  That’s up nearly 2% since April.  In addition, Forbes reveals that home prices have dropped to their 2002 levels, falling another 4.2% in the first quarter of 2011.  David Blitzer, Chairman of the Index Committee at S&P Indices, released a chilling statement that, “This month’s report is marked by the confirmation of a double-dip in home prices across much of the nation.”

Any rational person hoping that we were righting our economic ship knows the words “double-dip” signify the exact opposite.

Government statistics show the number of food stamp recipients is at an all time high — up 39% since Barack Obama took office.

Bloomberg reports that as jobless claims jumped another 10,000 last month, “more Americans than forecast filed applications for unemployment benefits last week, a sign the labor market is struggling to gain momentum.”

As much as we should, the danger comes in the reality that liberals have been rewriting textbooks and ingraining an anti-capitalist, pro-socialist message in the minds of America’s youth for decades.  The extent to which they have been successful will be determined by whether our nation decides to chain itself to the deck of this Obama-piloted Titanic, or do the smart thing and abandon ship.
