How 'bout someone asking the question - "Are Americans better off now that they were 6 years aga under George W. Bush. Just ask anyone who is looking for a job today if they would rather be looking now or back in the "good ol' days" (Bush) when salaries were high and jobs were plentiful!

Although Bush sucked as a president, I was better off when he was in office than I am today. Then, as now, I was making around $25,000 a year.

I do okay when Republicans are in the White House but not so well when Democrats are in office. I've never had a job that has paid more than $27,000 a year. I'm definitely NOT better off now than I was when Bush was in office.

Back when he was first elected, Obama uttered the infamous line about how he would be looking at a "one term proposition" if people didn't consider themselves "better off" after three years of an Obama presidency. Now, during the election cycle, it's coming back to haunt him, and his surrogates and aides have given some evasive answers when asked if, in fact, we are better off.

It all started with Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley's awkward flip-flop from yesterday (on Face the Nation: we're not better off, "but that's not the question for this election) to today (in a tweet: We're...
