As always Mr. Monday, your comments are a treasure.
As a country, are we better off than we were four years ago? Let’s see:
Our president, beginning in January 2008, has presided over the following:
Over 8 percent unemployment for 4 straight years
An international credit downgrade last year for the first time in our history
A national debt that has skyrocketed to $16T this year from $10T in 2008
Squandered $800B+ on a failed stimulus plan
Mr. Frank and Mr. Dodd caused the greatest housing crisis in our history
Our reputation as a world leader has been seriously compromised
Created a loathsome class warfare
Tried to “muscle” the Catholic Church to accept abortion and contraception at taxpayer expense
In addition, the value of family households has plummeted by 40 percent – $126K (2007) vs $77K (2010); the number of people on food stamps has risen from 27M (2008) to 71M (2012); the number of people on SS disability has risen from 8.1M (2007) to 9.8M (2012); the cost of welfare has jumped from $500B (2008) to $820B (2012) and there’s been an increase in the poverty rate from 12.3 percent (2008) to 15.1% (2010) – the highest level in 20 years. But as you say – I’m sure it’s all Bush’s fault!
I’m also sure you Dems are busy watching the slowing of the ocean’s rise and the planet healing, but take off a few minutes and read a newspaper.
