We are definitely better off now than four years ago


Republicans are asking if we are better off now than we were four years ago.

My answer is a resounding yes.

Four years ago the stock market was about half what it is now, the GDP was a fraction of what it is now,  a major industry was two weeks away from going under, our banking system was in free fall, we had two wars in full swing, Kadafy was still in charge of Libya, Osama bin Laden was alive and well, we were losing bout 700,000 jobs a month and George W. Bush was president. I think any way you look at it we were worse off then.It started getting better just a few months after President Obama took office. Are we better off now?  You bet your donkey.
