We're better off than we were four years ago

Republicans are touting an old tatic from the past to attack President Barack Obama. The are using St. Reagan's (Bill Maher's name for President Ronald Reagan) attack on President Jimmy Carter which asked voters, "Are you better off than you were four years ago?"

Really? Do the Republicans want to make this argument? Yeah, times are not good. But four years ago, we were looking at the Great Depression, Part Two. We are not in that abyss. If I can paraphrase Vice President Joe Biden. Bin Laden is dead. GM is alive. Listen up Sarah Palin and you right-wingers. You betcha, we're better off than we were four years ago. Ed Schultz did an excellent piece on it yesterday. Check out his video.
