If you are wondering why President Obama and his supporters spend so much time in this election condescending to female voters, jabbering about gay marriage and contraception, or whether Mr. Obama really was born in Kenya, it is because they simply cannot talk about the economy.
And when they do, they quickly make clear why they work so hard to avoid any discussion of it.
The Obama campaign made a rare foray this past week into the economy with a television ad attacking Mitt Romney’s economic record as governor of Massachusetts. OK, stop laughing.
Of course, it strains absurdity for Mr. Obama to be attacking anybody else on their economic record. But this is a political campaign that will be determined by the economy. And, anyway, we should just be grateful that for once they are not arguing that you and I should be paying for some college student’s olympic sex life.
