The Question Democrats Should Ask At Their Convention
The Republicans asked a very poignant question at their just ended convention. One it would be dangerous and perhaps fatal for the Democrats to ignore. It was a repeat of a highly successful Reagan mantra: “Are you better off today than you were four years ago?’
What’s the obvious retort Democrats should broadcast at their own convention? Simple. “Will you be better off four years from now under a President Romney?
People don’t much trust Mitt Romney. His vice presidential choice scares a lot of people. Throw out this question and you tap into these fears. And with luck (at least from the Obama perspective), this future fear will outweigh disappointment over Mr. Obama’s own past performance in the Oval Office.
