Laughing Out Loud at WSJ Editorial on Democratic Economic Results

Do the WSJ Write Just for The Comedy

Even in the worst of times one can always get a chuckle out of the WSJ editorial pages.  Sometimes there is a hystical piece.  Here is an except from a recent opinion.

"We doubt all Democrats will be as enthusiastic about running again on the economic and foreign-policy record of 2009-2016."

Gosh, let's look at the facts on the economy.

1.  Unemployment is below 5%, Mitt Romney and the GOP's goal was to get it to 6%.

2.  Inflation has been about zero, far less than the Fed goal of 2%.

3.  The Deficit dropped by 60-70%, not currently a problem.

4.  20 million Americans gained health insurance.

5.  The stock market spent the Obama years in a stright upward climb.  The DJIA more than doubled; is reaching nearly 20,000

6.  Incomes rose finally for working families and the poverty rate declined.

Yeah, sure would not have wanted to run on that record.
