You want change, right?

I’ll jump on the shit-throwing bandwagon with both feet, what the hell. The info below was received via an email forward. -BG

George Bush has been in office for 7 1/2 years. The first six the economy was fine.

A little over one year ago:
1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 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 high–14,000 +
5) American’s were buying new cars, taking cruises, vacations overseas, living large!.

But American’s wanted ‘CHANGE’! So, in 2006 they voted in a Democratic Congress and yes, we got ‘CHANGE’ all right. In the PAST YEAR:

1) Consumer confidence has plummeted ;
2) Gasoline is now over $4 a gallon & climbing!;
3) Unemployment is up to 5.5% (a 10% increase);
4) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $12 TRILLION DOLLARS and 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 HAS
EVAPORATED FROM THEIR STOCKS, BONDS & 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.

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?

    B, sorry I haven’t checked your blog in a few days, but let me add something for your faithful readers: When W. took office unemployment was 4% in 2000, the article sites 4.5% a year ago which is +10% from 2000, ’01 4.7%, ’02 5.2%, ’03 6.0%, ’04 5.5%, ’05 5.1%, …I’ll stop there, I think the point is made. Also, black and Latino unemployment reached historic record lows in 2000.

    A little more …
    National Debt (x1,000,000,000,000)
    2000 – 5.6, 2001 – 5.8, 2002 – 6.2, 2003 – 6.7, 2004 – 7.3, 2005 – 7.9, 2006 – 8.5, 2007 – 9.0
    See graph at http://www.cedarcomm.com/~stevelm1/USDebt.png and notice the slope at various stages, especially under W.

    Gasoline prices make more since when you look at the inflation adjusted trend. Again notice the Bush years. http://inflationdata.com/inflation/images/charts/Oil/Gasoline_inflation_chart.htm

    This is too easy … really.
