Letter: Give Obama an F in Mathematics


Obama keeps bragging about the number of jobs he has created. The last number was 200,000 to 300,000 depending on whom you believe. If you believe that means recovery and full employment is under way, check out these numbers.

In 2007 there were 18,870,000 immigrants in the U.S., of which 11,780,00 were illegal. That number keeps increasing because 1,780,000 immigrants enter the U.S. every year (78 percent Mexico and Latin America, 13 percent Asia, 6 percent Europe and Canada, and 3 percent Africa). Add the U.S. birth rate to those immigration numbers, and you can see Obama knows that old saying "figures don't lie but liars can figure."

And is the money earned spent in America? For example, Mexico's second largest income source, (oil is number one) is from their citizens working in foreign countries (mostly America) and sending part of their pay to Mexico. In 2011 that amount was $23 billion.

So if you think his second term will fix everything, check the math.

Article comment by: He understands the changing demographics

I checked the math and the earth is older than 6,000 years, but science can't explain silly and whatever the numbers, the President understands the demographics of America are changing. Except the change or get left behind with your anger.
