Sensing a pattern here? Hmmmm. Yeah, me neither – ha.
Seriously, though, do you think this pattern has something to do with the economy turning around from free fall under George W. Bush to recovery under Barack Obama (not to mention peace and prosperity under Bill Clinton to…whatever the heck we had under Dubya)? Maybe it’s related to the stock markets going from total collapse to their highest level since 2008 under President Obama? Perhaps it has something to do with new claims for unemployment falling to their lowest point in 4 years? How about bin Laden dead today, again thanks to President Obama, instead of alive, thanks to George W. Bush letting him get away at Tora Bora (and then taking his eye off the ball for 7 years)? How about a gazillion other accomplishments by President Obama, as opposed to George W. Bush’s record of utter #FAIL (e.g., remember Hurricane Katrina and “heckuva job?”). Bottom line: we are FAR better off today than we were 4 years ago, just as we were FAR better off under the last Democrat in the White House, Bill Clinton, than under his Republican’t successor, George W. Bush.
Again, sensing a pattern here? Tough one, I know. 🙂
