Thank You, Democrats!

Remember the election in 2006? The one in which the Democratic party took control of both houses of Congress and vowed to take the country in a "different" direction?

Well, where did things stand a little over a year and a half ago, back in October of 2006? Let's take a quick ride on the WAYBAC machine, shall we?

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 close to $4.00 a gallon;
3) Unemployment jump up to 5% (a 10% increase);
4) $2.3 trillion in equity value simply evaporate (stock and mutual fund losses) across all American households
5) American's home equity drop by $1.2 trillion dollars;
6) 1% of American homes fall into foreclosure.

What will they do for an encore, once Barack Hussien Messiah Obama is elected? Maybe he'll sign this bill, the death knell of the American economy, once 'ol George is out of the way?

And once chaos results, whom will they have left to blame?
