    Just take this last item: In the last two years we have accumulated national debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as during the rest of our entire nation's history.
    Over 27 times as fast. Metaphorically speaking, if you are driving in the right lane doing 65 MPH and a car rockets past you in the left lane
    27 times faster, it would be doing 7,555 MPH!

    So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 29 months. . .so you'll have about 11 months to come up with an answer. Every statement in this email is factual and directly attributable to Barrack Hussein Obama. Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable.

    EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS. . .
    I WONDER HOW MANY WILL FORWARD THIS?

    The difference between an immigrant and an illegal alien is the equivalent of the difference between a burglar and a houseguest.
