"The U.S. budget deficit will swell to a record $1.186 trillion in fiscal 2009. The out-of-control deficit picture by the Congressional Budget Office illustrates the daunting economic challenges President-elect Barack Obama faces when he takes office on January 20."

****( http://money.cnn.com/2009/01/07/news/economy/... )****

"The CBO - which provides the official estimates of the budgetary impact of legislation and events such as wars and recessions. The federal government has tried to combat the crisis by so far committing $7.2 trillion in investments and loans primarily to financial institutions."

****( http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news... )****
**** "Dec. 31 (Bloomberg)-- It has been a year of record misery: the largest bankruptcy, bank failure and Ponzi scheme in U.S. history; $720 billion in writedowns and losses by financial institutions; $30.1 trillion in market valuation wiped out." ****

****( http://www.bea.gov/newsreleases/national/gdp/... )****

****“GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT: FOURTH QUARTER 2008 (PRELIMINARY)
Real gross domestic product -- the output of goods and services produced by labor and property located in the United States -- decreased at an annual rate of 6.2 percent in the fourth quarter of 2008."****

****“In June, 2002, President Bush announced the blueprint for the American Dream Partnership to create 5.5 million new minority homeowners by the end of this decade.”****

****“Many monumental errors and misjudgments contributed to the acute financial turmoil in which we now find ourselves. Nevertheless, the vast accumulation of toxic mortgage debt that poisoned the global financial system was driven by the aggressive buying of subprime and Alt-A mortgages, and mortgage-backed securities, by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The poor choices of these two government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs)-- and their sponsors in Washington -- are largely to blame for our current mess”****

**** "The financial crisis can be characterized as contagious, with one market after another falling like dominoes. In total, the world has lost around $60 trillion in wealth due to declines in equities, real estate values, and the value of private firms. Rating agencies and leverage are responsible for many of the financial system's problems." ****

Can't get over it, when he won and we lose rights, faith, country, & a whole lot of money.
He has spent more $ in 100 days of office than all presidents from Washington to GWB combined!
And you have the nerve to say WE WON???
No, we’ve lost!
What are you going to do when all this money obummer has printed leads us into hyper inflation? Where do you think you will live? Under a bridge? What will you eat? Soup and bread from a line?
You libs need to come down off of your high horse and start looking at reality!
Spending money that you don’t have DOES NOT GET YOU OUT OF DEBT!!!
