Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” on Wednesday aired a scathing review of the first three years of President Barack Obama’s term in office, countering his “hope” and “change” motto with a series of “then and now” facts about the national debt, jobless rate, gas prices and more. “What sort of change have we really seen over the past four years from the Obama administration?” co-host Steve Doocy asked by way of introduction. The four-minute clip is a mash-up of the president’s speeches over the last three-and-a-half years, matching his promises and statements with the reality of rising costs. Starting with the frenzied “O-BA-MA! O-BA-MA!” crowd chants of four years ago, it’s quickly replaced by ominous tones. “I pledge to cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term in office…All of us need to act more responsibly on behalf of a better economic future…Hope is the guiding force behind the most improbable changes this country has ever made,” Obama says, before his statements are countered with the national debt: “$10 trillion then“ and ”$15 trillion now.”  Read more..........

Four More Years? - Pete Dupont - Wall Street Journal - If you think the first Obama term has been bad, just wait. Before being elected in 2008, Barack Obama said: "We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America." That belief has turned out to be wholly accurate. America has been greatly transformed by all areas of this administration's policy goals and actions. The most significant policy change during President Obama's first term was his health-care "reform," the movement of 17% of our economy from the marketplace of ideas and physician-patient decision-making to control and management by the federal government. The Supreme Court is now considering whether ObamaCare is constitutional, and is expected to decide by the end of June.......One final thought on what lies behind the very negative impact of the president's first term is the increasing jadedness on the part of Americans. The president many people felt would unite the country has instead used one wedge issue after another to divide our people along the lines of income, race, sex and class. This setting of one group against another is part of the re-election process and prospects. It may lead to a more difficult, divisive, and nastier election than we have seen in a while. And that may in turn mean an more difficult time for whoever is president in 2013.  Read entire article............
