There’s low brow politics and then there’s low brow politics. In my book, the what about the children?!?! card is the lowest you can go. Yes, even lower than the but seniors might die!?!? gambit.
But you know what? In this election, it’s actually true. This election really is about the future we are leaving our children.
No matter who wins, our children have now been strapped with the largest national debt in peacetime history. And for what? Lowered expectations.
There is an argument to be made that borrowing today is justified when such borrowing leads to greater economic growth. That’s what we call an investment.
But Obama’s borrowing has not led to greater economic growth. Borrowing to fund today’s government has led to dimmer prospects for the future, not brighter prospects.
This man has to go. It’s up to to you. And this time it really is for the children.
