“Right now, understandably — totally legitimate — this is a referendum on Obama and Biden and the nature of the state of the economy,” says Vice President Joe Biden. “Even though fifty-some percent of the American people think that the economy tanked because of the last administration, that’s not relevant.”
“What’s relevant is we’re in charge. And right now we are the ones in charge and it’s gotten better, but it hasn’t gotten good enough.”
I think Biden is exactly correct. This issue of this election isn’t what George W. Bush’s policies did and did not do to the economy. Bush isn’t on the ballot. The issue of this election is whether or not the policies Obama/Biden have put in place have worked.
And, of course, they haven’t.
