Misery Index Skyrockets Under Obama

Dear Editor:

After watching Pres. Obama give his "State of the Union" speech, the phrase "cognitive dissonance" came to mind. Succinctly, that is when someone knows something that is true, but believes (or tells you that he believes) something else. Can you imagine that Pres. Obama had the nerve to say that we are better off today than we were just 3 short years ago? Doesn't he watch the news? Most everything that should be up, is down, and most everything that should be down is up.

We have approx. 14 million unemployed, the real unemployment rate is 14%; gas prices have gone up to $3.50 per gallon from $1.85 when he took office; the federal debt is now over $15 trillion when it was $9.8 trillion when he was sworn in; the "Misery Index" was 7.8 in Jan. 2009 and it is now 11.9; in 2009, we had 32 million people on food stamps, now it is 46 million; and we have approx. 48 million families at or below the poverty line. If that isn't "cognitive dissonance", than the Pope isn't Catholic. Should that kind of pitiful performance deserve 4 more years? I think not.
