With a soaring deficit, tanking approval ratings, and an unemployment level holding strong at 9%, it's been a pretty daunting task to keep up with the latest numbers attached to President Obama's economic failures. But now, thanks to Jeremy Ross, there's an app for that!
Billed as a countdown "to either Barack Obama's second inauguration or his final days as President of the United States," at barely a month old the 'Obama Clock' currently tops the list of reference app's available for purchase.
Conveniently compiling key metrics on your smart phone, the app specifically monitors:
- Approval Rating
- Public Debt
- Unemployment Level
- Gasoline Cost Per Gallon
- Housing Price Index
And considering the dismal economic realities currenly facing Americans, liberals are all but happy with the product's recent release. According to the The Daily Caller's Neil Munro:
Liberals don’t like the app because it shows Obama’s numbers trending down, said Jeremy Ross, even though his app just publishes publicly available data. The app can also be used to display the same stats on future GOP presidents.
Ross, a California aerospace engineer, cut his sleep time down to 5 hours per day to develop the app, which users rate at 4.5 out of 5 stars.
“Most of my friends are very left and strongly discouraged me from starting this app,” he said. “My best friend hates this app.” Ross added that his own mother, also politically liberal, isn’t happy about it.
At $0.99 per download, further information on the 'Obama Clock' app is available to view here.
