And we’re not even half way through it, yet – from CBS News:
New numbers posted today on the Treasury Department website show the National Debt has increased by more than $3 trillion since President Obama took office.
The National Debt stood at $10.626 trillion the day Mr. Obama was inaugurated. The Bureau of Public Debt reported today that the National Debt had hit an all time high of $13.665 trillion…
The shameful thing for us Republicans is that during the Bush years, the debt rose nearly $5 trillion – but that took 8 years to happen. Obama is 60% of Bush’s debt in less than one fourth the amount of time! This is a criminal misuse of American wealth – and it must be stopped.
If you were feeling a little slack as the campaign enters its terminal phase; if you’re thinking “hey we’re going to win, so why sweat anymore?”, then stop it. We have to work to defeat as many Democrats as possible. We need to do this to give us the ability to stymie Obama’s profligate spending and bring back fiscal sanity. The future of our nation depends on it.
