6. He's probably talking about the Census report just released

Start at page 7 (in the document page numbering):
http://www.census.gov/prod/2012pubs/p60-243.pdf
Income inequality between 2010 and 2011 increased as measured
by changes in the shares of aggregate household income by quintiles, the Gini index, the
Theil index, and the Atkinson measures. The Gini index showed a 1.6 percent increase from
2010. This is the first time the Gini index has shown an annual increase since 1993, the earliest
year available for comparable measures of income inequality (Tables 2 and A-2).


A slack labor market is responsible for this, so I don't think you can blame it on Obama, but incomes in the US are declining.
