Just more lies and distortions from our President.
If I wanted to consider the real state of the nation, I don't need to listen to Bush, but to the people of the nation who are trying to spread the truth.
Since 2001, American median income is down by more than $1,000 a year
The number of Americans in poverty is up 5 millon people to 36 million
The amount of consumer credit has almost doubled in the past 7 years
The foreclosure rate on single family homes is 68 percent higher than it was in 2001
There are 3 million fewer manufacturing jobs now than in 2000
Between 1992-2000 there were an average of 1.76 million new private sector jobs created each year; between 2001-2008 that average was down to 369,000
And there is much more.
I suspect that these details were not motioned last night
