    So far, the only improvement seems to be for folks at the top. The numbers don't lie. Wages are down, prices are up. Jobs, what of them we still have, they suck. Poverty at a high point, right along with inequality. For Blacks, an absolute unmitigated disaster, wiping way 30 years of economic gains, huge numbers going back into negative net worth for the first time since the 1930's. Those are economic facts hard to avoid when Barack Obama (whom most Americans like a lot) isn't on the ballot.

      ...are going to be in for a rude awakening if they try and run on Obama's economy.

      Seriously.

      The other numbers that don't lie are poll after poll that shows people feeling their economic situation is improving.

      I have to honestly ask if you were awake during the 2012 campaign?

      And then to conclude that the only viable candidate is the only person besides Joe Biden was the one closest to the President who governed during such supposed "poor" times is truly dizzying logic.

      Or perhaps you're just trolling us with this job application for Politico?

      Step 1: Someone writes a highly misleading diary with a selective use of facts. Step 2: Someone else writes a highly misleading diary to counter the first diary with a selective use of facts. Step 3: Someone says Obama is worse than Hitler. Repeat.

          I'm attacking BBB's atrocious diary, not BBB, who is a great person (and that is true).

          Front page diarists have an extra level of responsibility.

            Seriously.
            That's not about the diary.

            That's not about the diary either.

            But no worries, I'm not bothered by personal attacks. Been seeing it for years, my skin is thick.

            Carry on.
