There is much ado about the Democrats response to the question, “Are we better off than we were four years ago?” It’s a dilemma for the Dems because if they say we are better off, then they seem oblivious to economic realities. If they admit we are not then they run the risk of being held responsible, which of course they should be.

Personally I expect them to do what they have been doing for the last four years, which is to just ignore the economy and try to distract voters with other issues like contraception and Mitt’s taxes. We’ll see how far this gets them this time.

By the Numbers

Call me naïve, but doesn’t the fact that 2011’s federal deficit is projected to be 1.5 trillion dollars make the so-called ‘Super’ Committee’s goal of cutting to save 1.2 trillion dollars over ten years rather irrelevant?


Nostalgic For the ’80s

The odd effect of this ad, which was banned in the early ’80s, is that is makes one nostalgic for a time when the deficit was only $2 trillion dollars.

The narrative of the Democrats this elections season appears to go as follows:

“The previous Republican administration created this mess through policies and programs that produced an economy crushing debt. We have sought to remedy this situation by advancing more policies and programs creating significantly more debt. The Tea Party is bad because it actually seems to want to eliminate or reduce these policies and programs to reduce said debt. Vote Democrat!”

Is it any surprise this strategy isn’t working?
