    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!

    Nor mine. I would vote to impeach him. I consider him a traitor to the People and the Constitution of the United States. He's an agent of the European, Middle Eastern and Asian enemies of our country.

    We have tremendous resources in the US and they want them.

    Well, my net retirement income is down about $400 a month. I don't know if Obama is totally responsible, but if he gets credit for killing bin Laden, he gets credit for my loss too.
