Bill Clinton to the rescue

Bill Clinton spoke out this week and said, basically, don't blame the Democrats for this mess we are in -- it started long before they got there.

There is some truth to that claim. However, I think that voters can blame the Democrats for spending boatloads of money to fix the broken economy -- and have very little to show for it.

The problem is that most of their economic stimulus plans were just remakes of all the social and spending plans that Dems had wanted to do for the last 20 years. Few of those plans had any hope of stimulating the economy, and the results are about what we should expect.

Those plans were designed to benefit specific interest groups -- i.e. supporters of Democratic politicians, and they did just that. The problem is that when the party in charge calls its plans economic stimulus, the voters expect that those plans are good-faith efforts to fix the economy. And that did not happen.

So, here we are less than two months from the election. What can be done?

Well, instead of blaming everybody who was in power in the past, how about suggesting some real economic stimulus.

We still have the busted economy. We still have brand new problems coming at us. What are your plans for fixing things?

If the Dems can sell a good plan and they will get some votes.

If the best they can come up with is that the Republicans caused it, and if the GOP were in charge it would be even worse -- well, then Dems probably will lose big time.
