Hillary Clinton pops the question

Politicians of both parties have dragged out Ronald Reagan's quote about being better off than you were four years ago many times and they probably always will as long as the circumstances seem to present an opportunity.

But in the following YouTube video, Sen. Hillary Clinton goes way overboard when she asks if you are better off now than you were forty years ago.

"I've been involved in politics and public life in one way or another for four decades," she said. "And during those years, our country has voted ten times to elect a president. And Democrats won only three of those times. It's true; isn't it hard to believe? And think of the progress we have not made. Think of the problems that have only gotten worse."

How about think 'what planet has this woman been on since 1968?' Seriously, think about how much better off we are than we were the year before Americans landed on the moon. It never occurred to me to really credit Republican presidents for the astounding strides our nation has made during my lifetime, but Hillary brought it up.

The really good news is that you only have to watch the first minute of the following video to see for yourself the above quote.
