Stemming from Mark’s excellent thread yesterday on Spending Reform, my question today is – do conservatives actually have to make the case anymore? In light of the spectacular current failure of the Obama brand of liberalism, my short answer would be no. Any objective analysis of the current state of the economy would lead one to the conclusion that Obama is a complete failure – gas prices, employment, GDP growth, taxes, poverty, welfare, health care, and consumer confidence ALL headed in the wrong direction. And now, Obama wants us all to believe that a slight reduction in the rate of growth will result in economic calamity, proving once again that he thinks we are all that stupid.
So what do you think? Do we press the case to the American voter? Or wait for them to coming running back to us? Sunday just seems to be a good day for an Open Thread, and I excel at Open Threads. What’s on your mind? And keep it civil.
UPDATE, by Mark Noonan: As its kind of an open thread, I happened to spend some time over at Iowahawk’s twitter:
#SequestrationThreat drones dropping “IOU 1 Bomb” notes
#SequestrationThreat TSA agents only fondling one testicle #SequestrationThreat Arts in our high schools will be cut, creating a dystopian nightmare future without high school art projects
UPDATE II, by Mark Noonan: Bobby Jindal tries out a couple 2016 talking points, “growing the private economy, not the government economy” and “You’ve seen the greed of Wall Street replaced with the greed of Washington, D.C.”
