    The Romney campaign this week is basing its message off of former President Reagan’s “are you better off?” question from his 1980 campaign, even though Romney himself admitted in an interview earlier this year that “of course [the economy is] getting better” under President Obama. And the numbers don’t lie.
    While the economy is only recovering slowly, the trend lines when it comes to jobs, wealth, and the success of American business are all moving in the right direction

    Doing the same here. Not better.

    Friday's unemployment numbers could be big. UE up, Obama goes down.

    Way to avoid the question OP, the question is "are we better off," not "is the economy slowly getting better" (which it isn't in the long-term, but I digress).

    This is the sort of mindless, ignorant, senseless garbage I would expect from a Miami Dolphins fan.

    Notice the LINK that is provided: "thinkprogress.org", which is a "progressive"/left wing blog whose editor left in May of this year to join Nancy Pelosi's staff.

    Go FISH! :lol:
