    Default Are We Better Off Than We Were Four Years Ago?

    Not sure why this wasn't/isn't a bigger story:

    Why would the MSP, Chris Mathews, Morning Joe, Andrea Mitchell, Martin Bashir, Rachel Maddow, etc. want to talk about this?

    I just read the transcript of Bill Clinton's speech at the DNC ... he thinks we ARE better off than 4 years ago. If Bill Clinton says it is so, he wouldn't lie, would he?

    I have watched Chris Mathews. I must say, that he is very rude to his guests. If they are not saying what he wants to hear he either talks over them or goes to a commercial. I have seen him do this to Mr. Steele on more than one occasion. I can't understand why anyone would want to go onto his show if they don't share the same beliefs as he does. Just my observation.
    I can honestly say that personally, my situation is better now than when Bush was in office. Could be luck, I don't know. But, I am better off now than 4 years ago.

    Is your house worth more than what it was four years ago? The average house has lost 40% of it's value in that time...

    I'm happy for you. You are one of the lucky ones. 23.5 million unemployed Americans unfortunately can't say the same...

    The stock market is a house of cards and soon after the election the crooks on Wall St will be selling to reap their profits from the suckers. There is no way you can have a sound economy and 1% interest rates!

    Real estate values around here have never gone down in the last 25 years. That's because we are not located in the Rust Belt or East and West coasts, areas controlled by large unions.
