An exciting event tonight: the premiere of the 17-minute documentary about President Obama’s first three years in office: 'The Road We Traveled'.
It's narrated by academy-award-winner Tom Hanks.
Here's the trailer: http://youtu.be/NXtJhLUOFXE
Stirring stuff, huh?
Three years later, and all the Administration's got to show is 17 minutes of accomplishments?
That's shorter than a sitcom without the commercials.
Makes you wonder how much footage they had to leave on the cutting room floor.
Here are the President's three major achievements you won't hear in tonight's movie.
I call it, “The Road We Really Traveled.”
When President Obama took office, unemployment was 7.8 percent. It rose to 10 before now settling at 8.3 percent.
Remember his administration said the stimulus would keep unemployment under 8 percent.
The great recession killed more than eight million jobs.
They say we're years into the recovery now, but we've only gotten two million jobs back.
That's a six million job deficit.
The President's next major accomplishment? Passing Obamacare.
A landmark case of government overreach, one that puts the entire U.S. health care system as we know it at risk. Your healthcare decided by Washington bureaucrats, not your doctor.
I'll have more details on how the costs are spiraling out of control later in the show.
And accomplishment number three: more than doubling the price of gas.
You wouldn't think that would be possible to do to a vital commodity, but when you believe in hope and change, when you want to force Americans to buy unproven electric cars, when you "just say no" to American drilling, that's what you get.
Congratulations, Mr. Obama.
I'm sure your new movie will be a real blockbuster.
Now, if you could just stop busting America’s recovery, I’d be grateful.
