Oh, dear. Sunday morning shows sure are hard when one is trying to desperately spin to defend an abysmal failure. Governor O’Malley couldn’t even manage it. In a rare instance of truth, when asked if people are better of now than they were four years ago, he said, “No.”

Senior adviser David Plouffe and former adviser David Axelrod failed miserably. It is a simple question, which they cannot answer. Because, truth is hard.
The question Plouffe and @davidaxelrod wouldn't answer on the Sunday shows: Are we better off now than four years ago?

The slimy Axelrod and Plouffe tried to dodge.
@stefcutter Think Mr Plouffe dropped ball while avoiding "this weeks" question are we better off than four yrs ago. Its an easy question.

#Axelrod, said the campaign can say "we're in a better position than we were four years ago." YEA YOU ARE Better OFF, U CROOK.

Well, as long as the campaign is. That’s all that matters, right? As for everyone else? “Errr … um …”

In 1984, Reagan never feared the "Are you better off now than 4 yrs ago?" question. Obama, however, will dodge it. http://t.co/x15mYX2H

More from Hot Air:
Want a preview of the presidential debates? Then spend two and a half minutes with this clip from today’s Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace and David Axelrod. Wallace asks Axelrod the quadrennial question: are voters better off now than four years ago? When the man running Team Obama tries to run away from the question by talking about the tough environment Barack Obama inherited, Wallace lays out the comparison on economic statistics between January 2009 and today, and asks Axelrod again: are voters better off now than four years ago? Answer: Er ….

Plouffe had a similar answer: Um. Uh.

Dear President Obama: When even shameless spinners and liars can’t hide the hard truth, you are in trouble, champ.
November is looking better and better.
