Democrats need to just focus on one message regarding the economy. This is it.


By Hugh Conrad

Here is a one-minute ad that will provide a great response:

Lead: Republicans want to take over the economy again after running it off the cliff over and over again?

Let's look at history:

In the 1920s, the Republicans featured Warren Harding, Calvin Coolidge, and Herbert Hoover, and three tax cuts and twelve years later, America was mired in the Great Depression.

In the 1980s, the Republicans featured Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush, who led America to the worst budget deficit at that point in history and into a serious recession in the early 1990s.

In the 2000s, Republicans featured George W. Bush, who led us to the brink of another Great Depression with the Great Republican Recession of 2008.

The solution? In the first two cases, a Democratic president pulled us out: FDR in the 1930s, Bill Clinton in the 1990s.

Now, give Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress another two years, and we will again be back on track to prosperity.
