It's Our Economy...

"The president has tried, but his policies haven't worked. He's great as a -- as a -- as a speaker and describing his plans and his vision. That's wonderful, except we have a record to look at. And that record shows he just hasn't been able to cut the deficit, to put in place reforms for Medicare and Social Security to preserve them, to get us the rising incomes we need. Median income is down $4,300 a family and 23 million Americans out of work. That's what this election is about. It's about who can get the middle class in this country a bright and prosperous future and assure our kids the kind of hope and optimism they deserve."

-- Mitt Romney, 16 October 2016

There Are No 47 Percent Ads

47 Percent Ads are now irrelevant, as if they never happened. Neither protagonist nor antagonist for those advertisements showed up in person last night at the first debate. Mr. Romney came across as likable; at least as likable as one might need in a President. On the other side, Mr. Obama was void in bringing the 47 Percent issue up. It simply is not important to him. If the 47 Percent Ads continue to play, it's only because of a large -- and odd -- disconnect between the campaign and its candidate. The only reasons for continuing to show the 47 Percent Ads are the disingenuous reasons.
