Team Obama: "Absolutely" We're Better Off Today Than We Were Four Years Ago. Why Are You Looking At Us Like We Are Idiots?

Yesterday various and sundry Obama surrogates chocked on a question they should be ready for...Is the country better off today than it was 4 years ago?

Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley was the worst (from an Obama perspective)/most honest in that he flat out said, "no" but of course, he blamed Bush.

Today Team Obama, including O'Malley, are singing a different tune...Of course we are better off under Obama than anyone could possibly imagine and only a fool can't see it!

But on CNN’s “Early Start” this morning, anchor John Berman elicited a different response from Democratic National Committee spokesman Brad Woodhouse.

“Brad you’ve been shaking your head, as you’ve been sitting off camera, because we’ve been playing all the sound from the last 24 hours of Democrats being asked ‘are you better off today than you were four years ago?’” Berman noted. “So, I’ll give you the chance to ask the question: Are we better off than we were four years ago?”

“Absolutely,” Woodhouse said.

On the Today Show, NBC’s Natalie Morales asked Obama campaign deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter: “Let me begin by starting with that central question on a lot of people’s minds, and that is are we better off today than we were four years ago when President Obama was elected?”

“Absolutely,” Cutter said. “Let me just walk you through what life was like four years ago.”

America is "Absolutely" better off today than it was under Bush. I guess that's their story and they are going to stick with it. Yeah, good luck with that.

Just a reminder, Obama gives his big acceptance speech at "The Stadium That Dare Not Speak Its Name" on Thursday night and on Friday morning August unemployment numbers come out.

As much as we talk about the reality of media bias, this is the kind of thing even the DMM (Democratic Machine Media) can't help Obama with. People understand the reality of the country's situation independent of any political ads or media propaganda. They can try to control the message about who is to blame but not the reality.

The Democrats approach is basically, "Who are you going to believe? Us or your lying eyes?". The Republicans are going to have Cutter and Woodhouse in a lot of comparative ads soon that will reinforce what people already know to be true...we aren't even remotely better off today than four years ago. It's better to be telling people what they know is absolutely true than telling them they are wrong and a little stupid to boot.

Advantage: Team Mitt

For the youngins out there....this is where the whole "Are you better off than you were 4 years ago?" came from.
