Dems: "Better off" question needs context
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) ó Democrats say answering the question of whether Americans are better off now than they were four years ago requires some context.
Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren tells NBC's "Today" show Tuesday that people should remember how far the economy fell and how hard it is to get back from a time when the stock market was crashing and the auto industry was a mess. She says the real issue is who has the best plan to move forward.
Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan, meanwhile, says to ask the millions of people out of work if they are better off. He noted on ABC "Good Morning America" that unemployment remains above 8 percent, despite President Barack Obama's stimulus plan.
The question is a major talking point as the Democratic National Convention kicks off Tuesday.
that's the ticket. After all, the progressive world is one of nuance
, right? No black or white, no good or bad, no absolutes, no substance, no definition... but just scads and scads of theoretical, hypothetical, twilight zone, bureaucratic bull...t, socialistic, left-wing gobbledegook.
What is it about 'better off' that needs context? Obama has run around leaving huge dogpile messes everywhere he steps, and this needs context
Oh I think not. The opposite of 'better off' is 'worse off' and Barry has produced that in spades. We've got so much 'worse off' that if we weren't such a great country we'd never clean up the mess.
But America is an exceptionally great nation and we're gonna fix this leftist disaster pronto by putting Barack Hussein Obama, mmm mmm mmm
, in the misbegotten bin of bad mistakes, throwing out the pathetic Democrat Party and bringing in the 'better off' guys.
Yep, it's time for the 'restore America's greatness' folks to take over from the 'America's a bad place that must be punished' goons, and I'll tell you something else.
Barry and his radical leftist thugs have done enough damage. This is it, they ain't gettin' another shot at it.
