Tuesday’s Gone? No, Tuesday’s Coming
Does anyone really think Obama is a slam-dunk for re-election? Or is Obama really closer to toast than slam-dunk?
Jay Cost at the Weekly Standard harkens back to Ronald Reagan, circa late-October 1980 and favors toast. What did then-candidate Reagan ask?
Next Tuesday all of you will go to the polls; you’ll stand there in the polling place and make a decision. I think when you make that decision, it might be well if you would ask yourself, are you better off than you were 4 years ago? Is it easier for you to go and buy things in the stores than it was 4 years ago? Is there more or less unemployment in the country than there was 4 years ago? Is America as respected throughout the world as it was? Do you feel that our security is as safe, that we’re as strong as we were 4 years ago? And if you answer all of those questions yes, why then, I think your choice is very obvious as to who you’ll vote for. If you don’t agree, if you don’t think that this course that we’ve been on for the last 4 years is what you would like to see us follow for the next 4, then I could suggest another choice that you have.
Tuesday 2008 may be gone, but Tuesday 2012 is coming.
