Axelrod Speaks the Truth

Filed under: Economy,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 1:42 pm

At PJ Media’s PJ Tatler, where they still type the words so you don’t have to watch the flipping’ video (thought it’s there if you want it) to get to the point:

AXELROD: “The choice in this election is between an economy that produces a growing middle class and that gives people a chance to get ahead, and their kids a chance to get ahead, and an economy that continues down the road we’re on.”

ICYMI, Barack Obama and his administration are responsible for “the road we’re on.” We can’t afford to be on it now, let alone stay on it for another four years.

Rush made a great point in response to this, which is that Team Obama wants to act as if it’s 2008 — (these are my adds) as if there was no stimulus, no Cash for Clunkers, no prolonged housing crash which 3-1/2 years later STILL may not have bottomed out, no trillion-dollar deficits, no $15 trillion in debt, no credit downgrades, no 8% unemployment, no weakest “recovery” since World War II, etc. etc.

Sorry, David. It’s not 1936, where FDR pretended that it was still 1932. There’s too much which is known to try to pretend that the past three-plus years — and really almost four, going back to the true inception of the POR (Pelosi-Obama-Reid) Economy.


UPDATE: Related — not a strong indicator because it’s only of sentiment, but a definite miss — “The National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo said Monday that its builder sentiment index fell this month to 25 from 28.”

Expectations were for an increase to 29. Oops.
