Some Inconvenient Truths
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, August 27, 2008

Just when gathered Democrats were about to convince the nation that they live in a miserable place and in miserable conditions, the Census Bureau has to report this:
•Income. Median household income rose to $50,233 in 2007 after adjusting for inflation. That's $665 more than a year earlier but still below the peak of 1999. Income in black households rose for the first time since 1999.

•Poverty. The poverty rate remained stable at 12.5% of households.

•Equality. The top one-fifth of households took home slightly less of the nation's income in 2007. The middle and lower-middle class gained the most.

•Insurance. The number of people without health insurance dropped 1.3 million to 45.7 million. The uninsured fell to 15.3% from 15.8%. The primary reason for decline: More people, especially children, are covered by government-sponsored insurance.
*sigh*

How in the world can a party preach gloom and doom when stats like that are published right in the middle of their pitch?

Note that so far, in two full days of malarkey their convention, the Dems have yet to mention high gas prices, except to say that they want to create "millions of green jobs," whatever that means.

Those pesky high gas prices can just wait until 2025 when we will be allegedly "energy independent."

You’ve got the answer right in what you’ve quoted. The peak was 1999. Thus, Bush sucks, and so would McCain.

Q.E.D.

Wulf, you obviously don’t understand when QED is to be used. It’s cute that you think you have learned something new. Are you saying that it began declining when Clinton was in office?
