Only Obama Is Better Off?
The only person I know who is better off today than he was four years ago is President Obama.
He’s making more money, living in a bigger house and playing more golf. And when his wife goes on a shopping spree with her girlfriends, it’s to Spain on the taxpayer’s dime.
If you asked President Obama if he’s better off today, he’d say, “Hell, yeah! And we don’t want it to stop!”
Meanwhile, as the president skates through the Great Recession, his failure to get the economy back on track has turned a country known for its optimism and belief in a better future into a nation of pessimists.
According to a recent opinion poll by Scott Rasmussen’s company, 63 percent of voters — liberals and conservatives, Democrats and Republicans — do not think today’s children will be better off than their parents.
That’s unbelievable. But what’s even more discouraging is that only 16 percent — 1 in 6 — do think the next generation will be better off.
