For David Bashore of Valparaiso, here are some facts when Bush left office. The national debt was $6 trillion. Now it is about $17 trillion or $18 trillion.

Bashore also says he is proud GM is looking to invest $9 million in China and $1 million in Russia. Why doesn't GM invest those jobs in the good old USA?

President Barack Obama had turned down that oil deal in Canada, so the Chinese took the deal so in the future we will have to buy that oil from China. With Obama's ban on oil drilling, gas prices have jumped.

Since Obama has been president, the number of people on food stamps is now in the millions. The only thing I can say is I hope Bashore is glad the way our country is going down the tubes. He should be glad he voted for Obama.
