The Democrats lack true ideas.
The Dems are in trouble. I think they know it. The strongest point of their upcoming campaigns against George Bush was going to be the relative weakness of the economy. They know they can’t beat him on foreign affairs. They have no alternative to what President Bush had done. They know that if they were president they would probably have done the same thing. So they talk to partisan crowds about tax cuts for the “rich” and how George Bush is presiding over the “worst economy since Herbert Hoover”.
The problem is, is that the economy is showing signs of a strong recovery. Jobless claims are down, inflation is down, and corporate profits are up up up. IBM reported last week that they will hire 50,000 new people in the first 2 quarters of next year. The stock market is also showing robust growth.
My all measures the economy is doing well, and we have President Bush to thank for that. His first round of tax cuts kept the recession from deepening, and his second round of tax cuts encouraged spending by individuals as well as infrastructure investments by business, all of which lead to economic growth.
The only thing lagging right now is job growth. While it is good that unemployment numbers are down, there are still many Americans out of work. But anyone who knows anything about history or economics will tell you that jobs are the last thing to come back after a recession. With encouraging numbers from Wall Street, those are soon to come.
The Democrats know they can’t beat Bush on foreign affairs, and with the feeble life raft of a weak economy they were riding in slowly sinking, the 10 or so Democrats running for president are running out of things to attack this president on. As all their predictions of doom and gloom don’t appear, they are looking like Chicken Little or the Boy who Cried Wolf.
Liars, and dirty liars at that. About to hand George Bush four more years.Powered by Sidelines
