The Obama administration is pulling out all the stops in its bid to convince Americans it has led the country down the right path -- one of prosperity and fulfillment. In fact, a recently released "docu-ganda" titled "The Road We've Traveled," paid a 17-minute-long homage to the president, painting him as a flawless savior who rescued America from the plight caused by the "unsavory" Bush administration. To make matters worse, The Blaze reported that the film's title, along with it's central theme, have some dubious roots to say the least.
And if one looks only at the headlines featured in mainstream media, it would be difficult to refute the flowery narrative this Obama campaign short film portrays.
So how do Americans assess the road we've really traveled?
One video has been released that tells us:
The video reveals that if a more earnest picture of the modern-day U.S. were painted, it would show a number of "inconvenient truths," including: a ravaged housing market, an S&P downgrade to the nation's credit rating for the first time in history, "out of control spending," record-high levels of Americans at poverty level and on food stamps, soaring unemployment rates, and vast increases in the national debt and gas prices. The list goes on...
- Unemployment has risen 7.8% -- 8.3% on average
- The National Deficit has risen $10.7 -- $15.3 Trillion
- Gas prices have risen $1.84 on average
- 7.7 Million foreclosures
- A record 46.2 Million at poverty level
- 46.1 Million on food stamps
Yet, as the video highlights, the president continues to engage in what many feel is class warfare, insisting the wealthiest Americans "pay their fair share" through tax increases, and even suggesting that working Americans needn't hesitate to "give up some of [their] bonuses and compensation."
President Obama consistently passes blame for the abysmal economy on his predecessor, saying George W. Bush led Americans down the "wrong road" -- which leads many to ask: Then why are we still on it?
But, whichever road Americans have been traveling on, 70% say it's the wrong one.
The video also reiterates a question Diane Sawyer once posed to the president during an interview: "Is maybe one term enough?"
