My fellow Americans,
I raised the national Debt from 5.7 trillion dollars at the beginning of my reign to more that 9.2 trillion dollars today.
I squandered a $261 billion dollar budget deficit and now propose a deficit that could swell to $250 billion dollars or more once the economic surge is approved.
I lied to you that deficits do not matter.
I watched unemployment rise from 4.2 percent in 2001 to 5.0 percent and rising today from the comfortable of Air Force 1.
I slept comfortably in the White House while the country built a house of cards constructed of houses which then collapsed predictably into the worst financial crises in the last 80 years.
I precluded any regulation at the federal level and preempted any rules by the states to govern lending practices for housing that would have prevented or mitigated this economic catastrophe.
I destroyed the reputation and respect previously accorded the United States of America in the world.
I divided our allies and united our enemies.
I ordered an unprovoked and unnecessary attack against a sovereign nation that did not threaten the security and well-being of the United States.
I changed the justification for the invasion code-named Operation Iraqi Liberation (OIL) each time one lie proved to be too false and too fraudulent even for you the American people to swallow.
I played fiddle while the military played taps.
I presided during a rise in oil prices from about $23 a barrel on September 11, 2001 to about $100 a barrel.
I watched gas go from about $1.50 a gallon in 2001 to about $3.00 a gallon and higher on my watch.
I hired faux journalists and fooled the real ones.
I undermined the Constitution at every opportunity.
I deceived myself and the public every day.
