I thought I'd try to list the problems with the economy in 20 seconds of typing. Start the clock now:
Dollar at record low against everything
National debt at record high -- much of it owned by the Chinese
Oil prices near $100/barrel
Subprime mortgage and ARMs causing widespread foreclosures
Gas prices approaching $4/gallon
Stock market dropping
There are many other factors, but these were just off the top of my head. The Democrats need to be saying this over and over: "Are you better off than you were 8 years ago?" Repeat, repeat, repeat. Meanwhile, the economy hasn't even begun to tank. This will be the major issue next year. You know what might fix it? A Manhattan Project for developing clean, renewable fuel. Imagine being the president who inaugurated the Green Industrial Revolution of the 21st Century. That's history, that's a legacy.
