An actually heading toward Great Depression levels if measured in the same manner. So maybe Obama is being compared to Truman and President GW Bush to FDR. Why does anyone do this? The only thing I see comparable is FDR's expanded and failed recovery which never started to recover until well after his long four terms and I see Obama repeating many of the same ineffective measures. Truman made the hard choices; Obama tries to buy another election, this time with our money.

Democrat political consultant Robert Shrum tried paint Mitt Romney yesterday as another Thomas Dewey, who lost to Harry Truman in 1948 after being favored going into the fall.

In the Daily Beast, Shrum calls Romney “the little man on the wedding cake,” “stiff” and a few other things that look like a Hail Mary designed to paint Mitt as out of touch.

But more important than who is Thomas Dewey in 2012 is the question who, in this scenario, will play the part of the no-nonsense Truman in a “Dewey Defeats Truman” reprise.

Because it ain’t Obama.
