With Election Over, Americans Find They Were Duped By Democrats And Obama

Politics 2012: It hasn’t been two months since Barack Obama won re-election, but already we’re finding out things that were kept from us during the campaign. Expect to hear more in the coming months.

Elections are clarifying events, we’re told. But sometimes what they clarify is merely the gap between what we were told during the campaign and the reality on the ground. Often, the two don’t match. That’s certainly true with Obama.

How often in recent weeks have we learned that what we heard on the campaign trail from the Obama camp, and which were echoed by a cowed and subservient press, were either distortions or outright lies — enough to keep a majority of us fooled, and help win a second term for the incumbent?

Now, we’re finding the reality to be something different. And to jog your recollection, here are just a few:

Economy: “The economy’s getting stronger … confidence is growing.” The media and Obama repeated these like a mantra. But as IBD reported earlier, real weekly earnings for American workers have fallen 3.5% since Obama took over, a declining trend that has continued post-election.

How about other signs of well-being? The Census Bureau reported after the election that the number of Americans in poverty grew by 712,000 people in 2011. A far-more bullish report issued in September said it had fallen by 96,000. Oh yes, and a record 47 million people today are on food stamps — up 47% since Obama took over.

READ IT ALL.

    After four years in office, the only reasons to vote for him again were racism, communism, and ignorance. None of the facts presented in this article came to light after the election–everything was available if you cared to look for it. I will continue to be an ant in a world of grasshoppers. Winter *is* coming.
