Are you better off than you were four years ago? -- September 4, 2012

The Republicans dredged up an old quote from Ronald Reagan: "Are you better off than you were four years ago?" 

Short answer: Yes, of course.

Longer answer: From Elizabeth Warren, on ABC's Good Morning America:
"You know, I remember what was happening four years ago. The markets were crashing. The financial system was threatening to seize up. The auto industry was about to plunge over the edge. And there was a real question among most economists whether or not this country was headed into a full-fledged depression. But the real issue now in the election is who has got the best plan going forward?"

I enjoyed the convention speeches from Mayor Julian Castro of San Antonio and Michelle Obama.
