Mr. Baker has problems when it come to getting his "facts" straight and quoting his source as required by the News Guard. he also exaggerates his information.

First of all, his issue regarding food stamps and Medicaid is an exaggeration. President Obama did not become president until 2008. Therefore, blaming Mr. Obama for the jump in recipients from 17 million to 45 million from 2000-2011 is not accurate. Mr Baker needs to get the figures from January 2000 to October 2011 and needs to quote his source. He also needs to remember that the economy "tanked" long before Mr. Obama became president.

Does Mr Baker have "insider" information on the 4,000 new regulations that Mr. Obama plans should he be re-elected? I think not! What is his source?

The Stimulus was needed. Imagine how many more jobs would have been lost; how many more housing foreclosures there would have been,;How many more food stamp and Medicaid recipients would there be!

Mr. Baker should make a number of trips to Third World Countries, staying for weeks or even months so he can see what it is really like. He would soon realize that our country is highly unlikely to be a Third World country and would hopefully be thankful he lives in the USA!
