The Democrat Election Dilemma in one question

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.

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.
