Life under Obama sucks. And these numbers prove it

Prophecy Sign:  Government corruption and economic distress

We at this blog, do not live in America, (Canadians we are...eh?), so we can't say first hand what things have been like under President Barack Obama.  However much anecdotal evidence, (like the article below), quite clearly says...NOT GOOD, and not about to get much better.  The two bible passages below, while not necessarily prophetic in nature, certainly do a good job describing the style of governance and economic distress that will be common place at the end of days, prior to Christ's return.

Both hands are skilled in doing evil; the ruler demands gifts, the judge accepts bribes,  the powerful dictate what they desire— they all conspire together. Micah 7:3 IV

For he has oppressed the poor and left them destitute; he has seized houses he did not build. Surely he will have no respite from his craving; he cannot save himself by his treasure.  Nothing is left for him to devour; his prosperity will not endure.  In the midst of his plenty, distress will overtake him; the full force of misery will come upon him. Job 20::19-22 NIV

Life under Obama sucks. And these numbers prove it
America is so over Obama. In 2008, the media and a majority of the voters were head-over-heels in love with the man who told them that “yes, we can” overcome war and recession. By 2012, the amour had cooled but they were willing to give four more years to the guy who was – if nothing else – way hotter than Mitt Romney. But now it’s 2014 and the passion is totally gone. Obama is the withholding boyfriend who knows that he’s probably on the way out and is just sending the odd friendly text message from the golf course. If this relationship-breakdown metaphor seems a little strained consider this: Barack Obama is close to having played more rounds of golf since 2009 than Tiger Woods. America would happily kick him to the curb, but he can’t run again in 2016 – so these midterm elections are the chance to send a message of complaint.

Barack Obama was elected in 2008 less on the back of a programme than a personality. He embodied rather than articulated change. As such, his election did mark a revolution in American race relations but it did not represent a serious effort at governmental reform. With the notable – and controversial – exceptions of Obamacare and gay marriage (the latter led entirely by the courts and not the administration), liberals should be asking themselves what Obama has ever done for them. Conservatives will be asking what he’s done to the economy, having over-regulated and over-spent to little obvious advantage.
