Remember the Election in 2006?

They were telling all who would listen that they would clean up Washington. They said that we are on the wrong path. Trust us, they said. We'll fix all that ails our country.

Just return us to our rightful place as leaders of America.

In less than two years. Remember the election in 2006?

Let's consider the following that has taken place since:

Less than two years 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%.

Since voting in a Democratic Congress in 2006 we have seen:
1) Consumer confidence plummet;
2) The cost of regular gasoline soar to over $3.50 a gallon;
3) Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase);
4) American households have seen $2.3 trillion in equity value evaporate (stock and mutual fund losses);
5) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $1.2 trillion dollars;
6) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure..

America voted for change in 2006, and we got it!

Remember it is Congress that makes law not the President. He has to work with what's handed to him.

And this Democratic Congress has been sitting on it's collective thumbs rotating while they blame it all on the current administration.

A liberal is a person who will give away everything he doesn't don't own.
