There is gloom, there is doom, the sky is falling, and “the good times are all gone, and it’s time to move along.” However, no one told our poor, fragile, insignificant little economy, which is only larger than the combined total of the next five countries below (California’s economy by itself is bigger than the sixth country), so second quarter gross domestic product (GDP) grew at a 3.3 percent rate.
That’s not what Barack and the Democrats were hoping for – good news about America is bad news for Democrats.
First they had to run from Iraq because the surge worked. Now they’ll have to duck the economy, because it’s chugging right along. The way things are going, all the Democrats will have left is “hope” and “change.” “Hope for,” and “change what?”
Obama hasn’t told us yet. He’s hoping we don’t notice, and change our minds about voting for an inexperienced, nebulous novice.
