Flashback: Obama’s Defining Moment Ad Asks, “Are Your Better Off Now Than You Were 4 Years Ago?”

Boy, were we duped…
In Obama’s final ad of the 2008 campaign he asked,
“Are you better off now than your were 4 years ago?”

“Defining Moment” highlights that the question is not “are you better off than you were four years ago?” We know the answer to that. The real question is will our country be better off four years from now?

Fast forward to today…
Americans are worse off now than they were two years ago by a 44% to 34% ratio.
