“The Obama campaign theme emblazoned on banners at events is “Forward,” symbolizing the president’s repeated criticisms that Romney’s plans will take the country “backwards.” But the president newly riffed on this Saturday when he said of the Republican convention, “What they offered over those three days was more often than not an agenda that was better suited for the last century. It was a rerun. We’d seen it before. You might as well have watched it on a black-and-white TV.””
Which is odd, considering the President and his acolytes have pissed away trillions of dollars based on the discredited economic theories of John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946). We should be watching newsreels.
