This has to make you think a little bit, if not keep your blinders on.

George Bush has been in office for 7.7 years. The first six the economy was fine.

A little over two years ago:

* Consumer confidence stood at a 2.5 year high

* Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon

* Unemployment rate was 4.5%

* Dow Jones hit a record high +14,000

* Americans were buying new cars, taking cruises, vacationing overseas, living large

But Americana's wanted "change".

So, in 2006 they voted in a Democratic Congress. yep--we got "change" all right.

In the past two years:

* Consumer confidence has plummeted

* Gasoline is now about $4.00 a gallon

* Unemployment is up to 5.5%

* Americans have seen their home equity drop by $12 Trillion

* 1% of American homes are in foreclosure

* Dow Jones is probing another low -11,000

* 2.5 Trillion dollars has evaporated from your stocks, Bonds, and Mutual Funds Investment portfolios.

Yes, in 2006 America voted for change. We sure as hell got it!

Did you see how Pelosi refused to hold a vote on drilling for oil?

She cut off the power in the House chambers and the democrats ran off to start their 5 week vacation.Ten Democrats and Republicans stayed behind with no power to try to fight for a vote on drilling.

By the way, the President does have the authority to bring Congress back into session and he should. GW should hold a press conference and tell the American people to call their representative and demand they hold a vote on drilling for oil.

Our economy is hurting and our national security depends on oil.

These "jackass democrats" would rather you pay out the "ying yang" for oil and play their petty politics than help the American people.
