The problems Obama will face are growing not subsiding. In just the last month the pump price of gasoline has risen .20 a gallon. ..higher than it has been in February since 1981.
The reason for the rise totally out of Obamas control; he cant lie his way out of it. The Iranians want to squeeze the Europeans who are already looking at $8.00 a gallon gas so they are denying France and England oil.
The Europeans will come here to buy their gasoline because our $3.52 per gallon looks great! When they do our price will go up whether we car pool, drive less, decide we wont buy from this company or that company or not. The price of gas on January 19, 2009 was $1.85.
The percentage of those who are unemployed who have been unemployed for 6 months or more has gone from 16% to 45.1 % . Never since the Great Depression has it been that high.
All of the following measurements of our national misery are presented as On Obamas Inauguration Day compared to today. These numbers come from The Senate Republican Conference.
The raw number of unemployed Americans: 12.05 million to 12.76 million. +710,000
Americans living in poverty: 39.8 million to 46.2 million. +6.4 million
American receiving Food Stamps 32 million to 46 million +14million

Obama and his ilk are like the guy that knows he’s going to file bankruptcy and goes out and buys a new car on credit, runs up his credit cards, and goes on vacations,
then splits on his creditors.
Obama is pleased with himself. In the same manner that Satan himself would be pleased tempting people away with a shiney apple.
