Over the weekend, don't forget to remind your friends, family and any other voters you know about the key numbers set out here:

$352 billion: Net tax hikes enacted by the President and the Democrats

9.6%: National unemployment rate

17.1%: The real unemployment rate -- counting those forced to work part time because they can't find full-time work.

2.6 million: The number of jobs lost in the US since the "stimulus" was passed.

January 1, 2011: Biggest tax increase in history -- hitting every taxpayer, regardless of income.

Today's extra fun fact . . . .

52: Rounds of golf President Obama has played during his 21 months in office.  That's more than twice as many as President George W. Bush played in eight years.
