I picked up these shocking statistics from the Guardian:
Last year, the census bureau reported that the income of the typical American family had dropped for the third year in a row. The median family income in 2010 was $49.445, 7.1% below its 1999 peak and when adjusted for inflation roughly at levels last seen in 1996.
How will Obama answer the accusation that the US economy has been a total mess under his presidency? By changing the subject onto some extraneous issue.
The economy is a vote killer for the Democrats.
