Newsweek: Hit The Road, Barack

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Wow, did Newsweek suddenly decide to take an honest look at the President? Glenn isn’t quote ready to believe they’ve completely turned around on the President, but their latest article is certainly a change in tone from the magazine who says “We are all socialists now”.

“Even Newsweek magazine is coming out and saying, ‘Hit the road, Barack’,” Glenn said this morning.

“Now, I personally don’t think they believe that,” he added, “That’s nothing more than Niall Ferguson who’s brilliant, probably one of the only ‑‑ one of the only economists that I would really, really trust, I think this guy really gets it, he’s coming out.  He’s the one who wrote it.”

Check out the latest cover below:

The Blaze reports:

Newsweek’s latest cover story comes from none other than noted historian Niall Ferguson. The article, titled “Hit the Road, Barack,” argues that President Obama has proven that he‘s an economic illiterate and that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan’s “path to prosperity is our only hope.”

“Unemployment was supposed to be 6 percent by now. It has averaged 8.2 percent this year so far. Meanwhile real median annual household income has dropped more than 5 percent since June 2009. Nearly 110 million individuals received a welfare benefit in 2011, mostly Medicaid or food stamps,” writes Ferguson.

“Welcome to Obama’s America,” he adds.

“America under this president is a superpower in retreat, if not retirement. Small wonder 46 percent of Americans — and 63 percent of Chinese  — believe that China already has replaced the U.S. as the world’s leading superpower or eventually will.”

Ferguson concludes that while Romney is not his ideal Presidential pick, he was the best of the potential nominees and his selection of Paul Ryan as his running mate shows that he, unlike Obama, is “a courageous leader who will not duck the challenges America faces”

Glenn took the story as an argument that lays out the two choices that America currently faces: Are we people who need handouts from big government or are we a people that are going to help themselves? It’s an argument that echoes what Glenn said at Restoring Love, that there are two Americas now: those who want to be pushed and those who push themselves.

“We have a choice that is no less significant than the choice that America faced at the Civil War,” Glenn said. “Because we are a nation that is cut in half. We’re a nation that is divided on direction: Am I going to take the handouts or am I going to do it on my own.”

“Do you want a big huge federal government? New Washington Post survey says no. What is it, Stu, 65% say they don’t want a big bloated federal government, that we already have too much regulation? The number is staggering. But you don’t see that represented anywhere except I think for Romney. Romney and Ryan are really starting to make some headway.”

    Its past time the MSM began to turn on the White Houses god-king; his lies are manifest and self evident to all who bother to see and understand. The left is entering a feeding frenzy of spin, distortion and lies to try and save their god-king as his tushie burns more and more (there is an article on todays TheBlaze about it.)

    Say goodbye to Obama and his insanity, its past time and then some.

    All I really want to know right now, which is a story in its own right if anyone can figure it out; is who, as with Pres Wilson at the time of his crippling, is pulling Obama the Insanes strings?

    • Julianne

      George Soros is the puppet master.

      • snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

        I believe there may be another between Soros and Obama; Soros has been the puppetmaster and manipulator for some time now, just who though the one behind our insane President, at cabinet level, is unknown to me.

        One thing with Soros, he has played Obama like one who is a master of the violin does his insturment.

      There is a saying: Courage to a liberal is very rare, they no longer are a liberal when they find it there.

      Well done indeed, may more see the truth and present it with boldness and courage.

      • Susanna Kelland

         Check this out. Present this with boldness and courage. The truth is, Mrs. Obama is no different than other first ladies.

        • Brady

          Susanna, I don’t think they are talking about the first bogus post here, but of the article itself.  What I’d like to know is, since the 1st Ladies entourage seems to be about the same, how do the salaries compare relative to inflation, etc…..

  • Amanda Thompson

    Let us see if anybody could do better.  I don’t think so.

    • Drew James

      I could, and like Obama, I’m totally inexperienced.  What I have that he doesn’t though, is math skills above an 8th grade level and a certain “Don’t give a fuck”-ness.

    • John Barrett

      Not only can ANYONE do much better than Obama, but Romney will do much better!  Obama is actively working to destroy America.  If we did NOTHING then that would be much better than what Obama is doing.  Romney / Ryan will get us turned on the right direction anyway, but we have a giant hole to dig ourselfs out of so it won’t happen overnight.

  • Albert Al Diro Diroberto

    FYI, don’t get too excited about the Chinese smoke and mirrors game. I do marketing for southern California retail and have been seeing (past 18 months) a large number of asians i.e. Chinese, buying large numbers of local american goods like appliances & consumers goods (boots) and shipping them back to asia. They tell us they can buy the appliances and other consumer goods for 50% less in the USA vs China. The inflation godzilla is alive and well in the far east! 


    Hard to argue Newsweek’s view or the wrtiers view…America is in decline and has been for awile and barack used it to his advantage when getting elected. I to fell into his trance i guess and thought, Hey! this is the guy but boy was I wrong! OBAMA needs to be ousted and if we get him for 4 more years, we are screwed for the next 20. Again, Romney and Ryan are no the ideal picks to run our country but I think Paul ryan brings some great and Real ideas and isnt afraid to say it! Lets hope and pray for some new and exciting leadership and i hope the ppl of america vote Obama out!

    First Lady Michelle Obama’s Servant List and Pay Scale
    The First Lady Requires More Than Twenty Attendants (that’s 22 attendants to be exact)
    1. $172,200 – Sher, Susan (Chief Of Staff)
    2. $140,000 – Frye, Jocelyn C. (Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of Policy And Projects For The First Lady)
    3. $113,000 – Rogers, Desiree G. (Special Assistant to the President and White House Social Secretary)
    4. $102,000 – Johnston, Camille Y. (Special Assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the First Lady)
    5. $100,000 – Winter, Melissa E. (Special Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
    6. $90,000 – Medina , David S. (Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
    7. $84,000 – Lelyveld, Catherine M (Director and Press Secretary to the First Lady)
    8. $75,000 – Starkey, Frances M. (Director of Scheduling and Advance for the First Lady)
    9. $70,000 – Sanders, Trooper (Deputy Director of Policy and Projects for the First Lady)
    10. $65,000 – Burnough, Erinn J. (Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary)
    11. $64,000 – Reinstein, Joseph B. (Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary)
    12. $62,000 – Goodman, Jennifer R. (Deputy Director of Scheduling and Events Coordinator For The First Lady)
    13. $60,000 – Fitts, Alan O. (Deputy Director of Advance and Trip Director for the First Lady)
    14. $57,500 – Lewis, Dana M. (Special Assistant and Personal Aide to the First Lady)
    15. $52,500 – Mustaphi, Semonti M. (Associate Director and Deputy Press Secretary to The First Lady)
    16. $50,000 – Jarvis, Kristen E. (Special-2Assistant for Scheduling and Traveling Aide to The First Lady)
    17. $45,000 – Lechtenberg, Tyler A. (Associate Director of Correspondence For The First Lady)

    There has NEVER been anyone in the White House at any time who has created such an army of staffers whose sole duties are the facilitation of the First Lady’s social life. One wonders why she needs so much help, at taxpayer expense, when even Hillary, only had three; Jackie Kennedy one; Laura Bush one; and prior to Mamie Eisenhower social help came from the President’s own pocket.
    Note: This does not include makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Miles, 49, and “First Hairstylist” Johnny Wright, 31, both of whom traveled aboard Air Force One to Europe.

    • Debbie Emshoff

      thank you for your info i have been wondering how much she spends of our money. I wish someone could figure out how much taxpayer money she and obama have spent on vacations including the cost of using Air Force One when they do.Hope you can find a way to submit this info to Romney campaign for the debates or rallies they will be attending. Hope some media, at least fox news should have this.This is tantamount to stealing. Would love to share or post this!

      • Elizabeth Marciano

        They have to use Air Force One  for the SIMPLE FACT the they are the Fisrt Family. Everyone knows your stupid message already DUH, you are stupid!

        • Sandie

          From what you have displayed in your posts, you are in no position to be calling anyone stupid.

          Of course they have to use AF1 – all the more reason to cut down on their jetting around the planet.

          Do you realize also, that the taxpayers are footing the bill for Obama’s use of AF1 to jet around the country campaigning?  He has been doing it for 3 years now, for appearances at various colleges, union halls & businesses and other venues? That all comes out of our pockets, not his campaign funds, as it does for Romney. Yet the Obama campaign team is whining about how Romney has raised more money than Obama has.
          Obama has spent far more of our money on his campaign than the difference between his and Romney’s funds.

          • Gary A. Anderson

            VERY TRUTH!!

          • Garwoodv6

            That’s why Obama insisted that Texas Gov. Rick Perry meet him- the handshake on the tarmac constituted “Presidential Business” instead of a fund-raising trip. Liberals win, Taxpayers lose- paying for his fund-raising campaigns.

          we know that they have to use Air Force One, but the question was how much is being spent by going on all these vacations, and other so-called essential trips to Europe, etc.Can you answer this one? I don’t think it’s stupid.

      • James Payne

        vacations huh? bush had the most vacations and even more so while our country was in despair from  “terrorist attacks” lets see how much he spent on vacations

          Yeah…. like all those times he cancelled vacations…. lmao. Obama has done nothing but golf and vacate.

          No wonder the economy is doing so poorly. Governing has been left to The Gaffer (Biden).

        • Sandie

           Bush went home to his ranch in Crawford TX most of the time – not to 5 star hotels with additional accommodations for a ridiculously large, entourage with special chiefs and additional security  all costing hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars more than a typical GWB ‘vacation’.

          Who watches the watchers?
          Guess we have to use “Truth or Fiction” now.
          For the past few years http://www.snopescom
           has positioned itself, or others have labeled it, as the ‘tell-all final word’ on any comment, claim and email. But for several years people tried to find out who exactly was behind
          Only recently did Wikipedia get to the bottom of it – kinda makes you wonder what they were hiding. Well, finally we know. It is run by a husband and wife team – that’s right, no big office of investigators and researchers, no team of lawyers. It’s just a mom-and-pop operation that began as a hobby. David and Barbara Mikkelson in the San Fernando Valley of California started the website about 13 years ago – and they have no formal background or experience in investigative research. After a few years it gained popularity believing it to be unbiased and neutral, but over the past couple of years people started asking questions who was behind it and did they have a selfish motivation?
          The reason for the questions – or skepticisms – is a result of claiming to have the bottom line facts to certain questions or issue when in fact they have been proven wrong. Also, there were criticisms the Mikkelsons were not really investigating and getting to the ‘true’ bottom of various issues.
          A few months ago, when my State Farm agent Bud Gregg in Mandeville hoisted a political sign referencing Barack Obama and made a big splash across the internet, ‘supposedly’ the Mikkelson’s claim to have researched this issue before posting their findings on In their statement they claimed the corporate office of State Farm pressured Gregg into taking down the sign, when in fact nothing of the sort ‘ever’ took place. I personally contacted David Mikkelson (and he replied back to me) thinking he would want to get to the bottom of this and I gave him Bud Gregg’s contact phone numbers – and Bud was going to give him phone numbers to the big exec’s at State Farm in Illinois who would have been willing to speak with him about it. He never called Bud. In fact, I learned from Bud Gregg no one from ever contacted anyone with State Farm. Yet, issued a statement as the ‘final factual word’ on the issue as if they did all their homework and got to the bottom of things – not!
          Then it has been learned the Mikkelson’s are very Democratic (party) and extremely liberal. As we all now know from this presidential election, liberals have a purpose agenda to discredit anything that appears to be conservative.. There has been much criticism lately over the internet with people pointing out the Mikkelson’s liberalism revealing itself in their website findings. Gee, what a shock?
          So, I say this now to everyone who goes to to get what they think to be the bottom line facts…’proceed with caution.’ Take what it says at face value and nothing more. Use it only to lead you to their references where you can link to and read the sources for yourself. Plus, you can always Google a subject and do the research yourself. It now seems apparent that’s all the Mikkelson’s do. After all, I can personally vouch from my own experience for their ‘not’ fully looking into things.


          I have found this to be true also! Many videos of Obama I tried to verify on Snopes and they said they were False…… Then they gave their Liberal slant….!!! I have suspected some problems with snopes for some time now, but I have only caught them in half-truths. If there is any subjectivity they do an immediate full left rudder. Truth or a better source for verification, in my opinion.
          I have recently discovered that is owned by a flaming liberal and this man is in the tank for Obama. There are many things they have listed on their site as a hoax and yet you can go to Youtube yourself and find the video of Obama actually saying these things. So you see, you cannot and should not trust….ever for anything that remotely resembles truth! I don’t even trust them to tell me if email chains are hoaxes anymore.
          A few conservative speakers on MySpace told me about
 a few months ago and I took it upon myself to do a little research to find out if it was true. Well, I found out for myself that it is true. Anyway just FYI please don’t use anymore for fact checking and make your friends aware of their political leanings as well. Many people still think is neutral and they can be trusted as factual. We need to make sure everyone is aware that that is a hoax in itself.

      David, I’m one of the biggest NON-fans of “Lady Obama” but in this day and age, checking facts is absolutely necessary. This is not completely factual information –  
      ✦ First Lady Michelle Obama has about 22 staffers working for her, directly or indirectly. (Some other accounts put that figure at 24.)  
      ✦ Mrs. Bush had between 24 and 26 staffers working for her by the end of her husband’s second term in office  
      ✦ Lady Bird Johnson, whose signature issue was beautifying roadways, had a staff of 30  
      ✦ Betty Ford had almost the same number.  
      ✦ Jacqueline Kennedy, who made renovating the White House her cause, had about 40 people on staff,

Are YOU alluding to the stereotype that black people like to live more lavishly when they are not accustomed to having a lot of money? Sorry, but it’s the only correlation I can possible make with this post, and that’s if I put myself in the shoes of someone carrying an immensely oversized chip on their shoulder. In fact, only some one who really dislikes black people would think like this. If your black, why do you disrespect yourself like this? That’s just sad.

    “Unemployment was supposed to be 6 percent by now. It has averaged 8.2 percent this year so far. Meanwhile real median annual household income has dropped more than 5 percent since June 2009. Nearly 110 million individuals received a welfare benefit in 2011, mostly Medicaid or food stamps,” writes Ferguson.

    The statistic is based on all the citizens who are actually claiming unemployment and receiving assistance for their situation.  In my household, my husband has been unemployed for the past 3 years due to company cut backs and yes, we choose to “go on our own” verses look for handouts.  It’s a struggle, but we are getting by.  And yes….Barry and his family need to leave the White House without dragging the rest of us down his path of destruction.

    I have never seen so much  hypocrisy and spoken with such a straight face. The president said that a person running for office their life is open to the public, and that people should have access to your life records. So Obama why have you and your wife sealed all your college applications and college records, if your life is open to the public these records should be available to the public. Why is it everyone else should have to show their records but you hide behind lawyers and paying millions to keep them sealed. What are you hiding? What is it in these records you want to keep away from the public? Why don’t you present your college applications and college records to the public. Or are you afraid of what we the people find about your eligibility?

    • James Eakin

      I love how people will bitch about this but not about the taxes. I could care less about what his grades were in school or what he turned in for his thesis paper… but how you file your taxes? That tells me A LOT of who you are as a person, your ethics, etc. I have a real problem with the fact that I only made 30k last year and I paid the same percentage in taxes as Romney. And hey – if its up to Romney – it’ll stay that way! Sorry, I didn’t drink the kool-aid like the rest of you conservatives did – I don’t believe that trickle down economics work. Gee why is that? Maybe because Bush ran that idea so far into the ground and showed us time and time again that trickle down economics WON’T work, that money stays stuck at the top. Obama’s plan is the only smart choice to make.

         I don’t think you quite get why others are “bitching” about this issue. We ALL are “bitching” about taxes, believe it or not. We are all upset about unemployment percentages, and a whole lot more. The reason we keep bringing this up, however, is that when you hide things like this you are hiding it for a reason. You either hide it because it is embarrassing or you hide it because it will get you in serious trouble. Obama expects others to show their records, taxes, blah blah blah, but refuses to show his own. Why do you think that is? If there isn’t actually something bad or embarrassing about his college records, essays, grades, why is he hiding it? If he has nothing to hide, he’d show the papers. Don’t think for one second that this is all we care about though. I want to know why our DHS, Social Security Administration, NOAA, and several others are buying high powered ammo, bullet proof check points, and many other things. DHS purchased 450 million hollow points! I want to know why our government run by the Obama Administration wants to put 30 Thousand drones in the sky to watch us all? I want to know why Obama wants to censor the interent! I want to know why our president is in close ties with the Muslim Brotherhood who are well-known supporters of Hamas. I want to know why our government constantly caves in and bows down to CAIR…I have a lot of other issues that I’m “curious” about, and I’m not the only one. Stop tuning out to the rest of our other issues(that should be issues for you too) in favor of one. By the way, we aren’t the ones brainwashed. We actually do our research and have thoughts of our own. We want to live the lives that we want to. We don’t somebody forcing their lifestyle on us. I’m not forcing my lifestyle on you, don’t force yours on me. I don’t want the government dumbing me down with the rest of them(brainwashed fools who believe EVERYTHING their government tells them).  By the way, about the taxes, why do you think we have more businesses moving to other countries??? They are being OVER taxed. When they become over taxed or have too many rules and stipulations placed on them, they pick their business up and move it over seas where they pay less, and pay their employees even less! What happens when they do that here? We loose jobs, workers get laid off, they are lucky if they get welfare. The taxes that the business was paying is now not going to our federal system. We loose more money. Also, the money made from the products do not go to our country, they end up supporting another country. You were probably the same fool who was happy when Obama raised minimum wage too? That was a big mistake! When that happened, the  markets bumped their prices up because people were making more money. So it is very much like we were still stuck at minimum wage where it was to begin with. It wasn’t very productive. If that isn’t bad enough, Obama’s administration has bullied some companies to move their business overseas. Then we bailed out companies that we really didn’t even need to. GM was one of them. There are a whole lot more of issues I can cover here. Try to google this stuff for yourself instead of believing everything mainstream media tells you. It doesn’t take much.

        You know, If your paying the same percentage as Romney in taxes, you are paying a whole lot less. Just wondered if you knew that.

    THANK YOU NEWSWEEK for the truth .Wake up AMERICANS before we are no longer the home of the FREE!

  • Garnetta Dyer Bowling

    It is about time, but I talk to diehard liberals that refuse to admit the truth, they would rather see the USA go down the tube than vote for anyone else.

    Wow! Newsweek what is with the change of heart? Conservatives have been telling you this for 4 years!

  • Omar Juarez

    People who live on food stamps and welfare have all the reasons to vote for him again, a free check, free food, free housing, free healthcare, why bother to go look for a job… and of course they will ask the question…what’s a job???

    Research your sources, David. According to snopes, the false rumor website, all this is false. Way to cite your sources, much like this article has some issues.

    The people on here are stupid and ask stupid questiona and have stupid comments that any normal person would know!

      it’s really unfortunate that your go to word is “stupid”. Indicates a very low level of inteligence, not to mention language skills.

    • Lioness

      I happen to check out the few posts you left, and If I were you, I would definitely reconsider insulting the intelligence of others. It’s like the pot calling the kettle black if you get my drift.

    • Sandie

       From what you have displayed in your posts,  anyone can see that you are in no position to be calling anyone stupid.

  • Kelly Samples-Harvey

    love the sweater Glenn….not. Love the article though.

  • John Wong

    Valerie Jarrett is the economic illiterate. It is she that calls the shots and Barack follows.

  • John Wong

    Spending faster than he makes it – That’s why Obama’s election warchest is smaller than Romney’s.

  • Mark Kreiner

    I thought he already hit the road….. been doing nothing but vacations and golf….. oh, and photo ops in NYC with AirForce 1 Flyovers…. can’t forget that. 

  • Alyssa Farley

    Quit trying to debate this. Calling multiple people “stupid” just shows how ignorant you are. Oh, and if you’re going to back her up, spell her name correctly.

  • Nik Boldrini

    Here the latest song about Obama! 

  • Gary A. Anderson

    NEWSWEEK, on August 6, 2012, featured a picture of Romney suggesting “THE WIMP FACTOR.” Now, NEWSWEEK featured a photo of Obama suggesting “HIT THE ROAD, BARACK.” No doubt, NEWSWEEK is focused, at present, on the middle ground. Two questions remain to be answered. First, is NEWSWEEK PRETENDING to be impartial? Second, is NEWSWEEK’S REAL interest to misguide the public? Clearly, the answer is murky at best.

    even the leftist political hacks can’t defend Obama anymore. spending us into debt, dividing us into makers and takers, strangling the economy with regulation will never be popular with the American people.

    Hey, guys.  (sigh)
    No easy way to say this.
    They re-elected the son of a 8*+(#.
    This sucks.

  • curmudgeon

    Sure makes me miss George and Laura who had class. If not for low class the Obama’s would have NO class at all!

  • Billy Bob

    Obama is president because rich powerful people put him there, dumb sheep voting had nothing to do with it, and all of your politicians have been complacent to allow it cause they will not destroy this corrupt political process that rules over dumb sheep by acting against that process, for americans to still believe that they have power in voting after what your voting has done to this country, you are fools, but I understand you desperately cling to the only life raft that you have, voting was always worthless and your constitution means nothing, its just a piece of paper, the rich allow you to cling to it to make you feel like you have rights and freedom, America was high jacked completely and taken over by 1975 and while americans were fighting and dying overseas for the so called freedom of others their own country was lost, americans have been the biggest fools on earth.

    This Newsweek front page and associated article were a fraud, not that I don’t agree.

  • Jerry OConnor
