Past Tense

Barack Obama says this election is about where the Democrats and Republicans want to take the country. Well, there is a clear distinction about governing philosophy (summed up as big government crony capitalism vs. freedom and growth), and Mr. Obama loses on that ground alone. But Mr. Obama is smoking something if he thinks 2012 is not also about his actions as president. The president acts as if he just got here, but he has a pitiful record: poor growth, no jobs, favorable treatment for “green energy” friends, an anti-oil philosophy, huge deficits, and a takeover of health care even when the American people have said No, just to name a few. So the election is not only about the future; it’s also about the past–and the president knows it.
