Stick this on your bulletin board and send it far and wide.
George Bush has been in office for 7½ years. The first six the economy was fine. In spite of the mid-2000 Clinton recession, it was even resilient enough to rebound after 9/11. A little over one year ago:
1. Consumer confidence stood at a 2½ year high;
2. Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;
3. The unemployment rate was 4.5%.
4. The Dow Jones hit a record high14,000
5. Americans were buying new cars, stoking the economy, taking cruises, vacationing overseas, living large!
But Americans wanted change! So, in 2006 they voted in a Democratic Congress and yeswe got CHANGE all right. In the past year:
1. Consumer confidence has plummeted;
2. Gasoline is now over $3.75 a gallon, and it had hit well over $4 a gallon;
3. Unemployment is up to 5.5% (a 10% increase);
4. Americans have seen their home equity drop by $12 TRILLION dollars, with prices still dropping;
5. 1% of American homes are in foreclosure.
6. As I write, the Dow is probing another low: $2.5 TRILLION dollars have evaporated from Americans stocks, bonds and mutual funds investment portfolios.
Yes, in 2006, America voted for change ... and we sure got it! Remember, the President has no control over any of these issues - only Congress. And what has Congress done in the last two years? Absolutely nothing! They certainly havent improved the situation. Theyve made it much worse.
Stop and think about that for a moment. Now the Democratic candidate for President claims he is going to really give us change along with a Democratic Congress!
Just how much more change do you think you can stand?
We cannot surrender our country and our hard-won, hard-fought American way of life. Please pass this around, and support McCain/Palin in every way you can. Thank you.
(I added just a little bit more.)
Just wait until these Socialists are running all three branches of government in what would be the largest country ever to try Socialism. What a disaster!
Thanks to PLD’s friend Ron for writing this!
oh my - look at that.
I’m not inhaling.
I have talked to many (too many!) obamanoids, who refuse to believe that President Bush and Rove don’t control everything! They also believe that Republicans control congress. And,,, they won’t listen to facts! They’re like Moonies!
email from a Hillary supporter NObama....
And, of course, the committed Obama voters are NEVER going to vote for McCain. NEVER. Not even if Larry Sinclair, Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Tony Rezko, and Louis Farrakhan himself all host a joint press conference in the nude and regale the public with tales of drunken and drugged bestiality involving Barack Obama, a donkey, and a very lonely Acorn. And then burn a flag and make fun of how gullible intellectual white people are.
I would add that the ‘surplus’ dems like to point to was the same creative accounting wall street used to cook their books.
I believe it.
However, I heard a comment in passing on KSFO the other night ... a black woman had either called in or emailed, saying that while her friends all say in public that they will vote for 0bama, behind closed doors, they confided to her that he was much too radical for them, and they will be voting for McCain.
I do not hold much stock in polls at this point, and the closeness says volumes.
Not only that, but tax surpluses generally mean that we were taxes *too much*!
Gotta love those PUMAs. They have a sharp wit.
Professional consumers ran out of credit and/or things to buy, I believe. It had to happen sooner or later.
They sure do.
sad, but I beleive its true. People committed to Obama have scales over their eyes. he can do no wrong.
Huh? Republicans didn't control congress even when they were in the majority!
