As Twitchy reported, Team Obama had quite the difficult time answering the simple question, “are people better off now than they were four years ago.” Governor O’Malley, now on hostage watch, in a fit of honesty said, “No.” David Plouffe and David Axelrod hemmed and hawed.
Question: #AreYouBetterOff than you were four years ago?
American People: NO!
Red Politicians: NO!
Blue Politicians: Repeat the question!

The only possible result from such a pathetic display? A hashtag, featuring some hard truths: #AreYouBetterOff.
The Left tried to hijack it with ludicrous remarks like this.
I don't understand how removing human rights from women and those below the poverty line will make us better off in 4 #AreYouBetterOff

Um. Human rights. Like the right to life?
Citizens who are based in reality, however, spoke the truth.
