"Are you better off now than you were four years ago?" That question, first posed over three decades ago by Ronald Wilson Reagan as a candidate for president, has been asked during each presidential campaign since. Supporters of challengers normally say, "no"; those of incumbents normally say "yes".
Interestingly, this time around supporters of President mmm, mmm, mmm, Barack Hussein Obama have been answering, "no, but, uhhh..." They then usually divert the conversation to blaming Bush.

In a speech today in Toledo, Ohio, Obama attempted to promote the American Dream. One comment he made spoke to Americans ability to take vacations. Barry, do you really want to have that conversation? This is the Vacationer-in-Chief, who travels abroad like royalty, often separately from the First Lady, while many Americans have to settle for "staycations", if that. Many are on extended vacations because they have no jobs and no viable prospects.

Enjoy the convention.
