If you don't think all these ugly numbers are enough, here's another that should be frightening to us all.  If this doesn't motivate you to vote, nothing will.  From CBS News:

The National Debt stood at $10.626 trillion the day Mr. Obama was inaugurated. The Bureau of Public Debt reported today that the National Debt had hit an all time high of $13.665 trillion.

The Debt increased $4.9 trillion during President Bush's two terms. The Administration has projected the National Debt will soar in Mr. Obama's fourth year in office to nearly $16.5-trillion in 2012. That's more than 100 percent of the value of the nation's economy and $5.9-trillion above what it was his first day on the job.

Got that?  If he's not restrained, President Obama is on course to increase the national debt to more than the entire value of the US economy by 2012.
