Okay, the Republicans had theirs and the Dems are having theirs this week. When it's over we'll know...what? That it's election time, but we knew that already.
People, many self-declared experts say, think it's the economy, stupid, and maybe it is. I can certainly remember when times were better but I can also remember when they were worse. Not a lof of beggars or guys selling apples on the street these days.
Each side has its heavy hitters making points. "He can't tell you that you're better off," GOP VP hopeful Paul Ryan told a crowd in Greenville. "Simply put the Jimmy Carter years look like the good old days compared to where we are now." Democrat Joe Biden, who has the job Ryan wants, offers, of course, a different view. "Folks, let me make something clear, the VP said, "Let me just set it up this way...Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive."
Just think, folks. Only two months left.
