"The unemployment rate in 2001 was 4.2% it is now 5.0%. The [national] debt was $5.7 trillion, it's now $9.2 trillion. There was $261 billion dollar surplus [in the annual budget], there's now a $250 dollar deficit. Gas was $1.47 a gallon, it's now $3.02. Why should the American people continue a Republican in the White House with that kind of record?"
