My latest for the examiner Will Niki Tsongas be better off than she was two years ago? highlights a rather amazing answer to a question during the October 10th debate against GOP opponent Jon Golnik.

Ms Donelan asked if we are better off than we were two years ago, and the congresswoman’s answer was this:

“I absolutely believe we are better off than four years ago”

And she followed up this answer giving credit to the president’s policies for producing the result she touted.

In a solid blue state a democrat might attempt to make such a case with a straight face but nationally an attempt to say such a thing is a recipe for disaster.

And considering the reaction from the Jon Golnik campaign, it might not be that safe a case to make even here.

When asked for comment Alicia Preston adviser for the Golnik campaign said this:

“That makes as much sense as saying social security is solvent. That’s the problem with living in an ivory tower, you are thoroughly out of touch.”

In just over three weeks we will find out if the district agrees.

If there was ever an opportunity for Mr. Golnik to make up his 7 pt deficit this is it.
