The GOP presidential candidates need to decide why, exactly, President Barack Obama is a failure.
Until the economy began improving, Obama’s GOP challengers were unified in their message. It was all about jobs and the economy.
Despite the fact that Obama inherited a nation in the deepest recession since the 1930s, they said high unemployment numbers proved his ineptitude.
With unemployment dropping, consumer confidence rising and manufacturing brisk, they began seeking other issues.
In possibly the best evidence that the economy is indeed headed toward full recovery, candidate Rick Santorum totally gave up on the economic attacks Monday.
“I don’t care what the unemployment rate’s going to be,” Santorum said. “Doesn’t matter to me. My campaign doesn’t hinge on unemployment rates and growth rates.”
Obama has had plenty of failures. I can’t wait for his challengers to identify one.
