Damn Straight

"Ask yourself - are you better off now than you were four years ago?"
--Republican talking point

I don't know why President Obama doesn't just answer this by saying,

"Fuck yes!  Four years ago, in October of 2008, the country was in the hands of a corporate puppet with his head stuck firmly up his ass, helpless to do something about a disastrous situation he and his Republican party caused, the same Republican party that so clearly failed to address the disaster that they LOST the election of 2008 in favor of someone who would DO SOMETHING.  So no shit Sherlock, Mr. Romney, we are about a thousand times better off than we were four years ago."

It amuses the ever loving crap out of me that the only people this election who are having difficulty choosing the President are Americans.

Make of that what you will.

Four years ago we were worried at my university how many faculty and staff would be fired/laid off, and whether entire departments would simply be cut. Today, the issue doesn't even come up -- nobody is wondering if s/he will have a job next year.

Are we better off now than four years ago? Heck yeah.

I was better off 4 years ago. Earned about twice what I do now. Economic policies of others didn't bite me in the ass until over a year of Obama. Don't blame him, but I don't praise him either. I don't see all that much real difference in the two major candidates...they both want some of my money to give to someone else for their own power.
