There is much compelling evidence of the toll that President Bush and his gang have taken on America and it will haunt John McCain over the next few months leading up to November 4th. The abuse and hurt that the American people have endured over the past seven years is a part of the Bush legacy. The war in Iraq and the economic woes are two issues in the presidential and congressional races that give Democrats an opportunity for a clean sweep in the general election. The following are some data that John McCain and the cadre of lobbyists who are running his campaign will have to live with during the next few months as they attempt to convince the American people that four more years of Bush-Cheney-Rove wouldn’t be so bad:
$103 Billion – this is the economic toll the housing crisis has taken on American families so far – with 7.3 million forced out of their homes.
107% – this is how much gas prices have increased during the Bush Administration – the average American family will spend $4,500 on gas this year.
7 Billion – this is how many tons of greenhouse gases the United States emits every year – and that amounts to 25% of worldwide emissions.
7.4 Million – this is the number of Americans who are unemployed as of June 1, 2008. Sadly, average wages have dropped by 2.4% for American workers.
78% – this is the increase in the cost of health insurance since 2001 – a major reason 47 million Americans are uninsured currently.
$275 Million – this is how much we spend every day in Iraq – with the total cost of this Bush-Cheney-Rove war estimated at $3 trillion.
$311 Billion – this is the amount of the record national debt as of April. It is rising every day – with much of what we owe being to China.
$30.2 Billion – this is the amount of the trade deficit for this country currently.
Our nation must have an effective leader during the next four years who can unify the American people and who can rebuild our shattered image on the international stage. Our world is threatened on so many fronts that many in this country have lost hope. It’s essential that hope is restored for the good of our nation. Our future has been put in serious jeopardy by this administration and that’s quite clear. Many political observers say this is the most important national election since the Hoover days. The Democratic Party must rise to the challenge facing America and put the ship of state back on course. Electing a President who can lead us back to the greatness that our country enjoyed in years past is an absolute necessity. A leader like Franklin Roosevelt – Harry Truman – John Kennedy – or Bill Clinton – must serve our nation and its people for the next four years. We can’t afford to put an older version of George Bush in the oval office in 2009.
