Great Pivot By Mrs. Obama
This morning I was saying to the wife that I hoped we would see two crucial pivots during the DNC to shove some of the more ridiculous points from the RNC up their asses.
First, I said that they should pivot this business about the Republicans claiming Obama resents success. The claim, basically, is that two people who came from nothing and graduated Harvard law school, somehow are not successful and are actually jealous of others' success. Michelle did that beautifully. "We don't think success is measured in money." "We believe that, when you walk through that door, you don't slam is shut behind you."
The other pivot I'm hoping to see is on the gas prices issue. Yes, gas prices have doubled in the past four years, but what does that actually tell us? That there was an economic apocalypse right before Obama took office. I was shocked to hear that prices fell all the way to $1.60 in 2008, because I had forgotten just how bad it was. Something else that has nearly doubled while Obama has been in office? The Dow. The Dems need to take this opportunity to shove the point up Romney's ass and break off the handle--Romney is exactly right, prices of lots of things, including stocks, have increased under Obama because those prices had basically been obliterated just before he took office.
