    Obama!!!!

    PRESIDENCY
    SOME WILL APPRECIATE THIS AND SOME WILL NOT.
    HOWEVER, ALL OF IT IS TRUE.
    After 29 months of Obama ... A little hard to follow on here, but the first numbers are from January 2009 and the 2nd numbers are today's prices, 3rd numbers are the percent of increase since January 2009 and the last number is the source listed below.

    Here's your change!

    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!

    So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 29 months -- so you'll have one year to come up with an answer. Every statement in this email is factual and directly attributable to Barrack Hussein Obama. Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable.

    EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS...
