    Will Obama take full credit for:

    1. First Democrat to admit Social Security is dead broke?

    "I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on August 3 if we haven't resolved this issue, because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it," Obama said in an interview on the CBS Evening News Tuesday evening.

    "This is not just a matter of Social Security checks," Obama said. "These are veterans checks, these are folks on disability and their checks. There are about 70 million checks that go out."

    2. Record Food Stamp Use with more to come?

    "NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- More than one in seven Americans are on food stamps, but the federal government wants even more people to sign up for the safety net program. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has been running radio ads for the past four months encouraging those eligible to enroll. The campaign is targeted at the elderly, working poor, the unemployed and Hispanics."

    that's the Dem message to Hispanics? We have Food Stamps for you?

    3. Record number of people living in poverty?

    "Barack Obama is not just the food stamp president. A record one in seven Americans in on food stamps today thanks to Barack Obama. But that's not all. Barack Obama is also the poverty and pain president. Under Obama 6.4 million Americans are living below the poverty line and there is a record number of Americans living in deep poverty."
