The price of gasoline when obaMao took office was $1.79 per gallon. Today's national average is $3.58.
Cap and Trade is not law, so Obama's EPA has come through the back door as analysts have estimated an increase In electricity rates of about 24% by 2016. Families are currently paying an average of $1419.00 per year an increase of $300.00. Remember, ObaMao promised 'electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket under his plan.' Promise kept!
Food prices. Ah, where to begin? Let's just talk peanut butter, shall we? Last summer, dry weather conditions coupled with Government subsidies to farmers to NOT grow peanuts equated to a 40% increase in peanut butter...not over the last four years..rather in just the month of November! A 40% increase may not seem like much to those in D.C., but to struggling families that dish up peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to their children, a 40% increase is substantial! Also, we've all watched as food packaging shrinks while the price increased. Michelle Obama may enjoy Wagu beef frequently, but hamburger is All many families can afford, and barely.
Under Obama, 14.2 million people were added as food stamp recipients. Bush doesn't catch a break on this one, however, as 14.7 million were added under him. But, wait...Bush was in office EIGHT Year's, ObaMao has only been in office for FOUR years.
Unemployment rate. 7.6% when he took office and 8.5 today. (I believe the actual rate is much higher though).
How many jobs created and/or lost under Obama? Tricky question and there's no sure fire way to really count, but this link helps explain:http://mollysmiddleamerica.blogspot.com/2011/11/how-many-jobs-has-obama-created-lost.html
The national debt has increased $4 trillion under Obama. Yes, he continues to blame Bush and two wars, blah, blah, blah. But I will say he is full of crap! If he gets four more years, this country is toast.
Millions will watch this evening as our liar in chief makes more promises that he has no intention of keeping, and I am sure he will use the same rhetoric about being fair, doing their fair share, playing fair and having skin in the game. To anyone that buys into his bull, I say 'get your suitcase out, pack the bag, and buy a one way ticket to Cuba', because that's where he's taking us, so you may as well get a head start.
I'm pretty sure I can find an I Love Lucy re-run on television tonight, and NO Dad, I won't be watching your president.
