Change .... the Pelosi Congress

George Bush has been in office for 7 1/2 years. The first six the economy was fine; at the beginning of 2007, things were looking good:

1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19/gallon;
3) the unemployment rate was 4.5%.
4) the DOW JONES hit a record high—14,000+

But American’’s wanted ‘’CHANGE’’! So, in 2006 they voted in a Democratic Congress & yes—we got ‘’CHANGE’’ all right. They pushed for higher taxes, called CEOs to capital hill and berated them, and pushed pork-barrel and excessive spending bills. At the same time, the economy started getting into trouble:

1) Consumer confidence has plummeted ;
2) Gasoline is now over $4 a gallon & climbing;
3) Unemployment is up to 6% (a 20% increase);
4) Americans have seen their home equity drop by 12 TRILLION DOLLARS & prices still dropping;
5) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure;
6) as I write, THE DOW is probing another low

So a question for those who think voting for more Democrats is a good kind of 'change':


the change we need is to change away from the Pelosi Congress.
