 Just take this last item: In the last two years we have accumulated national debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as during the rest of our entire nation's history.
Over 27 times as fast. Metaphorically speaking, if you are driving in the right lane doing 65 MPH and a car rockets past you in the left lane.
27 times faster, it would be doing 7,555 MPH! Sources:

Those are some scary statistics, but I'm sure we'll hear from the trolls and their crew before to long.
Somehow they're going to say Mr.Romney had something to do with this, or as well it was George W. Bush's fault, and that these statistics are LIES.

Also, Hope went south for the entire 3.9 years except for the Demwits assumptions that it is here, and the change went the opposite way of stabilizing that reccession.
barry has got them so snowballed, that IF he told them he was White instead of brown, they would believe him..

The dopes don't care about statistics or what's happening to the country.
As long as they eat good and don't have to work.

That and they'll either:

Call it a lie

Try to sidetrack the facts above

Blame it on Bush

Or call us 'haters'.

Too   bad, facts are facts.

Did you count the $13 trillion that went missing from the Fed and the Wall Street scandal what about that, the money that left this country going to the oil billionaires, and money made from outsourcing jobs and bankrupting companies going overseas and to swiss bank account and let's not talk about the war and how that money was handled?
