Four Years, Four Weeks

A great line from a good article on Obama’s delicate balance between telling the (awful) truth about the economy and raising (dim, possibly false) hopes for the future.

“Back in 1980, Ronald Reagan asked the electorate if you were better off than you were four years ago,” Obama told a grandstand full of voters in the swing state of Indiana. “At the pace things are going, you’re going to have to ask if you were better off than you were four weeks ago.”

  1. Holy cow, Question, that’s fantastic. I encourage everyone to follow that link and watch the “Ronald Reagan Endorses Obama” video.

    (Reagan looks and sounds good for being dead for more than four years!)

  2. Way too much time on my hands. I was going to post it on my blog, but don’t have the energy and my battery is almost dead – elevate it if you feel like it.
