Better Off?

Question:  “Are you better off than you were four years ago?”

Answer: YES, Mr. ROMNEY, AS A MATTER OF FACT, WE ARE BETTER OFF THAN WE WERE FOUR YEARS AGO!

Four years ago, we were looking into the abyss. Four years ago, Wall Street and the banks were trembling. Four years ago, the American automobile industry was on the eve of destruction. Every job associated with the auto industry was about to go away. Forever. Four years ago, we were fighting two wars. No end in sight. Or was it three wars? It’s hard to remember. Four years seems like a long time. Hard to remember what it was like. It’s like a nightmare that we woke up from. A catastrophic plane crash that we walked away from. YES, the truth is, we are better off.

  1. I had the same surreal feeling — of someone trying to yell Fire in a theater where restoration work is in progress. Disappointment? I’m disappointed that Obama hasn’t been stronger on civil rights, hasn’t spoken out against drug war idiocy, hasn’t fought harder for real health care reform that wasn’t a cash cow for the insurance companies, but how is Mitt Romney going to make me happier on those counts?

  2. The drug war! It’s a tragic mistake that’s ruined many lives and many neighborhoods. I agree with your thoughts. If only Obama could have the persuasive powers of Lyndon Johnson in dealing with Congress.
