    •Unemployment is 8.3% and has been above 8% for 42 straight months!
    •Underemployed is over 15%
    •The price of gas – When Obama took office, a gallon of gas cost you $1.85. Today, it’s up to $3.59 per gallon (July’s rise was 17 cents a gallon).
    •GDP has consistently been under 3% which is awful.
    •71% of small business owners believe we’re still in a recession.
    •You have to work 107 days each year just to pay Federal, State, & Local taxes – That means you don’t earn a penny until April 18th.
    •More than 30% of unemployed Americans have been out of work for more than a year – In 2007, that number was 10%.
    •Low income America – According to NBC News, virtually half of all Americans are considered to be “low income” or living in poverty.
    •Propping up the economy by monetizing our massive debt — In 2008, the Federal Reserve bought “negligible” amounts of our debt, last year the Fed purchased 61% of the government debt issued by the Treasury Dept.
    •The price of gold when Obama was inaugurated, $850 an ounce. Today, gold is over $1500.
    •Billions Spent on Green Energy is just gone with no results.

    It's called diversion. Changing the subject.

    Romney's only strong stand on anything in his entire political career is not releasing his taxes.

    He must be hiding something pretty big.

    John McCain probably told Reid about Romney's taxes.

    You know how those old Senators like to gossip.

    I think the overall official plan from here until the election, is for an Obama surrogate every week or so to pull something out of their ass like this that lasts a week or two, to distract Americans away from Obama's terrible economy.
    It's a game of just trying to sit on the ball and running the clock out.
