Statistical Proof America Is Worse Off Two Years After Obama's Election

Unfortunately, I do not know who created this statistical chart because it was sent to me in a forwarded email. However, remarks which accompanied the chart are reproduced below. There is an unnerving trend here. 

I say, why wait for the 2012 election? If Obama's policies are undermining the nation, do we have to sit back and take it like masochists, or can we start some grassroots conversations about impeachment for incompetence? Too bad recall elections don't happen at the federal level.  Hat tip to Helen in Kansas for sending the chart.

Just take this last item:  In the last two years we have accumulated national debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as during the rest of our entire nation's history.  Over 27 times as fast.  Metaphorically speaking, if you are driving in the right lane doing 65 MPH and a car rockets past you in the left lane. 27 times faster, it would be doing  7,555 MPH!
