Why Can't Democratic Candidates Explain The Stimulus Program

It troubles me when Democratic candidates, like Patty Murray in Washington State, cant't articulate the benefit of the stimulus program when their opponents used it to attacked them as being out of touch reckless spenders. Instead the right has successfully used the stimulus program against Democrats by selling the argument that it has been a total waste of billions of dollars.

For sure one of the narratives we will hear ad nauseam after the election if the House or Senate is lost to the Republicans will be the story of the failure by the the Democratic Party to get the message across that the stimulus is what actually saved the economy from a deep depression.

    Agreed that few political figures are taking the time to explain much in real terms these days! I'm liking the attempt to bring both sides to the table on www.electionland.com, which is customized to each state. Helped me wade through some of the bull.
