In Case You Had Any Doubt Whatsoever. . .

Carrie sends this chart via the Dem Caucus, showing how we were doing pre-Bush and how we're doing now. Stark. A few lowlights:
New Private Sector Jobs Created:
THEN--1.76 million/year NOW--369,000/year
Americans Uninsured:
THEN--38 million NOW--47 million
Consumer Credit Debt:
THEN--$7.65 trillion NOW--$12.8 trillion
Combat Readiness:
THEN--All divisions ready NOW--No brigades ready
U.S. Trade Deficit:
THEN--$380 billion NOW--$759 billion
Etc., etc. A snapshot of a country in decline.
