"The United States economy has grown faster, on average, under Democratic presidents than under Republicans, a new book says."

Of course it's a myth - but for too many years, the GOP has had the bigger, more powerful publicity machine. Heard an interview on NPR with a woman (single, working mother) who said, "Well, I wanted to vote for Hillary, but since she's not running, I'll probably vote for McCain because he supports the middle class." It's all perception, and it appalls me.

I keep hoping people will become smarter, or at least more curious. Until then, I hope we have better ads.
