Better off than four years ago, Colorado? Not by $4,333

Taking a fragile economy and turning it into virtual ruin has taken President Barack Obama less than four years.  The evidence is far and wide but for most Americans, especially those in Colorado, we only have to look to our personal incomes to tell the tale.

With an unemployment rate higher than it was when Obama took office, gas prices nearly doubling over the period and the cost of everything we buy increasing considerably, Coloradoans are forced to make do with less.  Of course the same can’t be true of our government but that is a topic for another day.

Today’s discussion centers around a Washington Post graphic that Colorado Peak Politics brought to our attention today.  It clearly shows how median household income has plummeted 8% under Obama’s leadership.

That is $4,333.00 that the average Colorado family has had to do without and it is significant.  We all need to remember that when you fill up your car with gas costing nearly $4.00 per gallon to drive yourself to the voting booth.

All of the other distractions Obama and the Democrats put forth – Big Bird, the phony ‘war on women’, etc – mean nothing.

The evidence right in our own pocketbook is clear and we simply cannot survive another four years under the current leadership.
