Why is Obama even MENTIONING anything but the economy?

Quayle was right.

BARACK OBAMA WILL BE RECORDED AS THE WORST PRESIDENT IN US HISTORY BECAUSE WHEN THIS ECONOMY TANKS, AS INTEREST ON THE DEBT EXCEEDS THE ENTIRE DEFENSE BUDGET HE WILL LEAVE A DISHEARTENED, CHANGED NATION THAT NO LONGER BELIEVES IT'S CHILDREN WILL HAVE BETTER LIVES

U.S. Auto Sales May Hit 28-Year Low as Discounts Flop

U.S. auto sales in August probably were the slowest for the month in 28 years as model-year closeout deals failed to entice consumers concerned the economy is worsening and they may lose their jobs.

Industrywide deliveries, to be released tomorrow, may have reached an annualized rate of 11.6 million vehicles this month, the average of eight analysts' estimates compiled by Bloomberg. That would be the slowest August since 1982, according to researcher Ward's AutoInfoBank. The rate would be 18 percent below last year's 14.2 million pace, when the U.S. government's "cash for clunkers" incentive program boosted sales.

"Home sales are way down, the stock market is way down, the unemployment report is very disappointing and consumer confidence is sputtering," Jesse Toprak, vice president of industry trends at TrueCar.com, said in an interview. "People just don't want to make big-ticket purchases because they're uncertain about their jobs and the value of their homes."

While automakers increased discounts by 1 percent from July to an average of $2,864 per vehicle, sales to individuals probably fell 7 percent from last month, according to Santa Monica, California-based TrueCar.

Consumers are avoiding showrooms as fear of a double-dip recession grows following the 27 percent plunge in existing home sales in July, said Mike Wall, an analyst for IHS Automotive. The U.S. unemployment rate in July held at 9.5 percent, near a 26-year high of 10.1 percent. The Conference Board's consumer sentiment index, due to be reported today, was little-changed this month at 50.9 after 50.4 in July, according to the median forecast in a Bloomberg survey.

MYFOXNY.COM - If you think you've been seeing more people sleep on city streets, statistics back up the perception. The homeless population living on New York City streets has gone up 50 percent in the past year, according to city statistics reported by theHellsKitchenLife.com blog.

The New York City Department of Homeless Services conducts a yearly survey of the streets of the city to count the number of homeless who are not in shelters. The HOPE survey was conducted in January 2010.

The number of homeless in the borough of Manhattan was up 47 percent in the past year, according to the count. The 2010 count had 1,145 people living in the streets. That is up 368 from 2009.

Brooklyn had the biggest increase of any borough. It saw a homeless increase of more than 100 percent in 2010.

More than 1,000 people now live in New York City's subway system -- up 11 percent in the past year.

While the numbers are alarming, they are still at historically low levels and the ratio of homeless to the general population remains low compared to other major cities, according to the city. The HOPE survey showed a 29 percent drop in homelessness from 2005.

DHS works to prevent homelessness and also provides short-term emergency shelter. The agency seeks to help homeless individuals move from shelters back to permanent housing.

For example, the DHS says it provided temporary, emergency shelter to 8,230 families with children -- equating to 25,204 adults and children in July. But the agency says shelters have seen fewer families. From October 2009 through June 2010, shelters had 11 percent fewer children, who are now back in homes of their own.
