At their convention in Charlotte, the Democrats provided the Republicans with the three crucial words the GOP should use to defeat Barack Obama. Again and again, the delegates chanted, “Four More Years!” and Mitt Romney and his supporters should ask the obvious question: “Four more years of what?”
Do voters want another four years of trillion dollar deficits, unemployment above eight percent, declining incomes and bitter national polarization? What part of the last four years would the public want to replicate? While Democrats blame Congressional Republicans or even the departed President Bush for the nation’s suffering, they don’t really try to deny the hard times since 2009. What they can’t answer is why anyone would want four more years of the same, or why, with the same leadership, any rational person would expect a different result.
