Read the Thursday Afternoon Wrap-Up for 1/31/2013 and the Friday Morning Commentary for 2/1/2013

It’s ironic that Obama’s 2008 campaign platform focused on the amorphous, fleeting, impractical emotion of HOPE.  I get it, it’s just campaign PROPAGANDA – formed by small minds, preying on smaller ones.

From the politician’s standpoint, the best part of such an ambiguous “promise” is the near impossibility of measuring it.  From time to time, loaded polls suggest constituent “approval”; however, the FACT remains that Obama is currently tied – with George W. Bush, no less – for the most “unpopular” re-elected President since Gallup started taking such polls in 1945…

Obama Job Approval Rating Lower than Nixon’s

…while Congress “enjoys” its lowest approval ever; falling to a HORRIFIC 10% last year…

Moreover, despite the government’s best efforts to mask REALITY with PROPAGANDA; privately taken polls – like the Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index – are barely above the 2008-09 crisis lows…

For all the government hype and spin regarding economic “recovery” – an ongoing, NEVER-ENDING LIE; U.S. Labor Force participation is at a 30-year low…

…including a stunning 47 million people on food stamps…

Meanwhile, there’s even less hope for the nation’s youth; holding $1 TRILLION of undischargable student loans…

…fighting all the aforementioned, whilst REAL inflation eats away at purchasing power by 8%-10% annually…

Furthermore, if the above didn’t sap any remaining hope about America’s future; the “icing on the cake” is the fact that while “the 99%” are suffering, “the 1%” are doing better than ever
