Obama ignoring impending disaster

Success - Article sent! close

Our country is speeding toward disaster. Official unemployment is 8.3 percent; actual unemployment is about 16 percent. Real estate values are down about 30 percent and mortgage foreclosures are going through the roof. Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid are on the brink of insolvency. Our national debt is over $15 trillion and soaring. Fuel costs are rising. The welfare rate in our country is the highest in history. On Jan. 1 we're going to get the biggest tax increase in history. Somewhere between 11 million and 25 million -- nobody knows for sure -- illegal immigrants flooded into our country, and we don't know who or where they are or what they're doing.

President Obama has no solutions. The only thing the Obama campaign can focus on is Mitt Romney's tax returns so they can nitpick them to pieces and distract the country from the real issues.
