By The Right Scoop


This is a great segment. Mark Levin lays out the numbers on where the economy actually is under Obama, despite Obama saying that today’s job numbers are a move in the right direction. But Levin then takes it a step further and fights back against Obama’s charges that what we’ve tried in the past hasn’t worked, the so-called ‘trickle down economics’, and exposes Obama’s lies by comparing Reagan’s numbers at this point in his first term (after the huge recession that Carter left him) to Obama’s numbers right now. And the difference is staggering.

    Romney needs to make one very key point, he needs to associate phrases like ‘top down economics’ and ‘trickle down economics’ to free market capitalism because the truth is that they are one and the same thing. He needs to make the point that when the one is criticizing ‘top down economics’ and ‘trickle down economics’ he is criticizing free market capitalism, and the founding of this country.

    • capelady

      Obama promotes a “bottom up” economy as if that could work? I guess it is just like leading from behind!

    • M_J_S

      He needs a new creative/communications team that were not castrated.

  • 911Infidel

    There’s stuff tricling down in this economy all right. But it isn’t economics. It has more in common with a dog and a tree.

    • Rshill7

      Yay!

      • Rshill7

        Quite a contrast to be sure.

        What’s O’ going to talk about…the weather? “Don’t read too much into those job numbers.” 30 more times? “I still believe in you. I hope you still believe in me.”(?) Ahem…No, jughead, I don’t, I never did, and that lack of belief was wise, warranted, and obviously vindicated.

        The real unemployment rate is in the teens. How do you spin that? Is he going to paint that on his black bus? Why not throw a debt clock up there too or list the 40,000 new regulations, or new healthcare taxes, you know, all of those added burdens, added to the very ones that carry the entire thing already. Surely we’ll not reelect a broken record of broken promises, and the most divisive President ever.
        No way.

        Ooooh, maybe he should appeal to Al Green fans only and sing his way to victory. I think the proverbial fat lady would drown him out with a swan song. November is O’s Waterloo. Tootleoo toast, with jam.

  • hbnolikeee

    He also “MISSPOKE” stating that 84,000 new jobs whereas the number is 80,000. Just in case you think that’s picky the difference is 5%.

    • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

      And that 5 percent means a lot for those who are still out of work.

    • Nukeman60

      The difference was that ‘private sector’ jobs were up 84,000 while the ‘public sector’ was down 4,000. That’s what he was talking about. So, overall, the number was 80,000.

    • capelady

      Yes…he got confused… 85,000 is the number of people that were added to the disability rolls because their TWO YEARS of unemployment benefits have expired! And those of us who are working are carrying these people so they can remain in the habit of not working, and if you add all their benefits together, many of them probably do better than if they did work! The USDA is trying to expand the food stamp rolls (which have already doubled!) and say they are working to overcome people’s pride and sense of self-reliance!!! What we have to overcome is the laziness and sense of entitlement – and eliminate the policies of the federal government that make it possible for able-bodied Americans to sit home, living off the taxpayer’s dime! They just passed a law so that government benefit cards could not be used in strip joints and casinos! This is a very sick culture we are living in, and our federal government is fostering it!

    Mark Levin is brilliant,we need him in a administration DOJ or a SC Justice.

    Exclusive – The Vetting – Barack Obama, the First Tea Partier

    In 2009, President Barack Obama reportedly called members of the Tea
    Party “teabaggers.” It turns out that our fourth greatest president,
    first in so many things, may have been the first “teabagger” himself, as seen in the 1997 photograph above. Yes, that really is Barack Obama wearing a regimental coat and carrying a tricorn hat in his hand. And that flag behind him really is a Gadsden flag, with its serpent and its “Don’t Tread On Me” slogan. You may want to let all of this sink in a bit, especially if you’re a Tea Party-bashing progressive.

      What’s the scoop here? Obama wore a tri-cornered hat and marched with a Gadsen flag? A tri-cornered hat doesn’t make a tea partier. A belief in small government, rational policies and capitalism makes a tea partier. Obama never was and never will be.

    What we’ve tried in the past has created the best economy in the world. What we are trying now has created 8.2% unemployment. You need only to look at the unemployment numbers and GDP growth rate to see if Obama’s economic policies are working. This isn’t a theoretical argument but rather an argument with a clear before and after picture and a picture of where we are at now.

  • blackbird

    “He doesn’t even know he sounds like an idiot” LOL!, that is something I always wondered about, the things Obama says, does he not know they are recording him? LOL!

    • http://twitter.com/kimmiesm Kimmie S. Smith

      Well, he knows that all his followers are stupid enough to keep following him so whatever he says they see as perfect.

  • 12grace

    No-one can mess with Levin, he knows his stuff and can back it up with facts.

    Love to hear Mark itemize the problems step by step as to the ranting of the left about greed and jobs going to foreign countries. There’s a big reason jobs are leaving the US which has the highest corporate tax in the world. Look at the list of new taxes coming up after the election thats been hidden by the media. There’s enough video of the lieing President the Republicans should run to wake up the sleepers.

    Yesterday, the Ulsterman report laid it out nicely, as well. It showed that Reagan had a 400% increase in jobs over Obama.

    http://theulstermanreport.com/2012/07/06/it-doesnt-have-to-be-this-way-america/

    So, Obama says ‘if we hadn’t tried it before, you might say, ok, let’s give that a shot”. We tried it before, it was a good idea, so let’s do it again. I agree, Mr. (soon to be ex) President.

  • Nukeman60

    On a previous post yesterday, I calculated that using Obamas highly touted ‘4.4 million jobs created’ numbers, it would take 20 years to return to Bush’s worst unemployment numbers (U6-10%, U3-6%).

    http://www.therightscoop.com/obama-todays-jobs-report-a-step-in-the-right-direction/

    We can’t afford to wait that long. That’s what Japan did and lost more than a decade in the process. We need a Reagan-esque style approach to recovery, not an Obama-mess style.

    yeah, we’re “moving in the right direction” to get his A$$ out of office!

  • http://www.facebook.com/ectracey Edward C Tracey

    When job reports come out they should tell us how many people are in full time employment working for others, how many are in part time employment working for others, how many are self employed in the following categories, home based businesses, LLC, Sub Chapter S, Full C Corps. How many people are eligible to work out of our total population versus for instance under 16, fully disabled, retired living on private and public pensions, etc. It is important also to know jobs lost totals this month and NEW jobs gained. Not a net number of plus or minus. We need to know employment numbers not un employment numbers. This cannot be manipulated as easily as unemployment because we don’t currently count those really unemployed if they stopped looking for work.

    • Rshill7

      If anyone should be counted it is they. It would free the fuzz from the math.

  • detectivedick

    Mark, the dog food from the White House still tastes the same, two years ago this was the Party Line.

    At least Carter offered cheese.

  • http://navalwarfare.blogspot.com/ Libertyship46

    And yet Obama is still doing relatively well in the polls. With economic figures like this, his approval ratings should be in the 35% range. But it is not. I just can’t believe that almost half of this country wants to follow the socialist policies promoted by Obama and his minions. Well, at least I’d like to believe that. We’ll find out in November if it’s true or not.

    • http://twitter.com/kimmiesm Kimmie S. Smith

      The ones who make up that bigger percentage is
      the young naive
      the liberals
      the freeloaders
      and the hollywood elite.

    • badbadlibs

      Almost half this country doesn’t pay attention to the facts or do any indepth research, they get their info from soundbites and headlines spewed by the liberal media with a huge liberal slant.
      The country was in much better shape under Pres. Bush, but the media’s campaign to discredit him in any way possible by any means possible worked.
      IF the media treated bo the way they treated Pres. Bush the poll numbers would have obama and satan tied at best…satan might even be a smidge ahead.

  • badbadlibs

    I honestly believe that bo is totally incapable of reconizing the truth and finds it utterly impossible to speak it.
    He has taken the term liar to heights only known by the father of them heretofore.

  • chromehorn

    How is it “bottom up”? It starts, when “they” take from the top and give to the bottom:-(

    • Rshill7

      It’s bottom up because it’s an idea from the pits of Hell.

      You’re welcome :-)

  • johnos2112

    Romney also needs to point out that ALL business needs a plan. That is flattening the tax rates so EVERYONE pays. He needs to point out that reducing rates allows more business to come to the USA and invest. I like his plan for lowering the corporate tax rate to 25%. That will make businesses want to invest here instead of outside the USA. This is how I explain to some of my brain dead friends. This is what you do not do:

    1. Place barriers in front of business people. Ie tax increases, minimum wages increases and regulations. When taxes go up that cost of doing business goes to the consumer. I know a man that owns three eateries in Omaha and if his taxes go up then guess what happens to who he buys from? When he buys food, drink, etc., it will cost much more and that will get passed on to the consumer. When you raise minimum wage that gets passed on to the consumer. In San Francisco the five dollar Subway footlong if not longer offered. 2. When the cost goes up demand goes down. When revenue goes down owners then have to make payroll adjustments and let people go. Less revenue and disposable income for Americans. 3. When that happens the gentleman from Omaha may have to leave the area, the USA or just shut down. 4. This is when it affects everyone. When revenue shrinks municipalities suffer because where will the money come from to pay officers, teachers, fire fighters, etc?

    The bottom line is when revenues shrink EVERYONE loses. It has been proven that when business is offered incentives that everyone has the opportunity to prosper. History is on the side of this!

    I attended a local advisory transportation meeting along with an elderly black woman. I made 3 suggestions and she made 1. A week later I recieved the minutes from that meeting. In it, she’d made 4 and I made none.

    The principle thought here is we have too many leaders patronizing minority groups regardless whether or not they make sense. It is all too prevelant in all the media outlets & standard policy in Congress..

  • 12grace

    I hope that Romney is not going to pull a Mc Shame on us and defer to the usurper.

  • aZjimbo

    Heard this last night. I love the stats of new jobs created then divide it by the 50 states. Brilliant.

  • http://teapartyreaganconservative.blogspot.com/ TeaPartyReaganConservative

    Mark Levin does a great job at exposing the real figures and numbers concerning the real state of the economy and unemployment in America today, compared to what it should be like when a real Conservative agenda of promoting pro-American Capitalist Free Market policies and principles, ie; Reaganomics is applied to the Nation and Economy, of which has been proven on record to work.

    And in addition, the factual proven record of absolute abject failure is on record, which we are now in living proof of, when liberal progressivism of, and for socialist-marxist ends and means of wealth redistribution, property and asset confiscation, and social racial (in)justice policies are instituted and applied, especially when they are applied by extremely radical people like Obama to exploit and destroy everything that is good and decent in a nation for their own personal destructive agenda.

    The Truth is never what Liberal progressives want the people to hear, as the Truth refutes everything liberal progressives say and do, and is why they deny, subvert, pollute, twist, distort, aka lie to the American public every chance they get. This is typical of what and who and they are, why they say and do what they say and do.

    They, Obama and his crony henchmen and women, are not fooling anyone but their already indoctrinated useful idiots in the streets.

    We the People will be rectifying this massive electoral mistake that was made in Nov 2008, on 6 Nov. 2012.

  • Yazz55

    Might it be appropriate to state that the economy actually created about 80,000 jobs, despite the all of the obamessiah regime’s wealth transfers schemes and other anti capitalist government spending plans, which by their design are geared to kill private sector jobs and to prevent them from being created.

  • 12grace

    “exposes Obama’s lies by comparing Reagan’s numbers at this point in his first term (after the huge recession that Carter left him)” Wait…that sounds familiar. Isn’t that what O’ always says he inherited this his term economy. So it’s ok for Reagan though? Hmmm?
