Each week, Democrats pitch multiple messages on Trumponomics. The first attempt is telling viewers that too many people aren’t feeling the effects of the good numbers. They’re insisting that voters don’t notice the increasing wages and the tax cuts because health insurance costs have stolen the wage increases and the money from the tax cuts.

Another of the Democrats’ attempts to discredit Trumponomics is by pretending that President Obama deserves the credit for the booming economy. They point to the fact that we’ve had steady job increases under Obama. They leave out the fact that economic growth and wages were virtually stagnant under President Obama’s policies. President Obama’s supporters never mention how small business and consumer confidence have skyrocketed under President Trump’s policies.

The latest Democrat attempt is to ignore the economy altogether. This attempt will fail, too. According to Byron York’s article, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are basing their campaigns on virtue signaling:

That leaves Democrats with the task of convincing millions of Americans to vote against their economic interests, to choose a Democrat over the president, during a time of economic satisfaction.

How to do it? Some Democrats have chosen to argue that there is something so wrong with the president, that he’s a racist, or he is an agent or Russia, or he is something equally terrible, that the traditional measures of a successful presidency do not apply.

Look at Democratic front-runner Joe Biden’s entry into the race. Biden’s announcement video focused entirely on the August 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in which a counterdemonstrator was murdered.

“We are in the battle for the soul of this nation,” Biden said. “If we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation, who we are, and I cannot stand by and watch that happen.”

Fast-rising Democratic contender Kamala Harris chose another approach. “I know predators,” the former prosecutor said recently, “and we have a predator living in the White House.”

President Trump isn’t a predator. He isn’t the bully that Biden accused him of being, either. They’re just flailing in their attempt to pull him down to their levels. It won’t work. President Trump is still the heavyweight in the ring. Biden’s been a lightweight his entire career. That’s why former Bush and Obama Defense Secretary Robert Gates said that Biden had gotten every major foreign policy issue for the past 30 years wrong.

As shown in this videotape, Biden talks tough but he’s a lightweight:

He doesn’t lack for confidence. He’s just lacking in talent. More than exposing him on an issue, Sen Harris exposed Biden on his lack of talent.

    It’s important to remember that the stagnant wage growth and meager job growth under the Obama Administration was in spite of a trillion-dollar stimulus package. The democrats tried to stimulate the economy with the right hand and strangled it with the (far) left hand.

  • Gary Gross says:

    That’s a great point, Terry. That point, in fact, will likely have an impact on this year’s election. Biden’s ‘claim to fame’ is that he’s able to connect with working people. I’m skeptical of that because he was part of the administration that tried killing (not hurting) the coal industry. The odds of those coal miners forgetting that is between slim & none & slim just left town.
