    You have to ask for the order; in other words, Don’t Vote Republican, but do vote, and when you do, vote Democratic. Otherwise, this is good. I also liked what Jed Lewison wrote today in DailyKos prroviding 4 Questions (and Answers) that cut to the chase, examples of Then under Bush, and Now, under Obama. Short version:

     1) Q: Average monthly private sector job growth in 2008 (Bush) vs. 2010 (Obama)?

    A: 2008 we  lost an average of 317,250 private sector jobs per month vs. 2010 we gained an average of 95,888 private sector jobs per month

    2) Q: FY 2009 deficit (the Bush Administration’s final budget) vs. FY 2010 deficit (the first budget of the Obama Administration)?

    A: Bush deficit of $1.416 trillion vs Obama deficit of $1.291 trillion 3) Q: Where was the stock market on Bush’s last day vs. Obaunder Obama today?

    A: Under Bush: Dow, NASDAQ, and S&P 500 closed at 7,949, 1,440, and 805, respectively. Today, as of 10:15AM Pacific, they are at 11,108, 2,512, and 1,183. That means since President Obama took office, the Dow, NASDAQ, and S&P 500 have increased 40%, 74%, and 47%, respectively. 4) Q: 4Which party’s candidate for speaker will campaign this weekend with a Nazi reenactor who dressed up in a SS uniform?

    A: The Republican Party, whose candidate for speaker, John Boehner, will campaign with Nazi re-enactor Rich Iott this weekend.

    As Mr. Newison says: “If you need an explanation why this is offensive, you are a lost cause.” In the article, Mr. Lewison provides sources for his answers.
