Do The Comparisons Work?

George Will says the 'are you better off now than you were 4 years ago' argument of Ronald Reagan does not work this election.

This first part of column only makes sense if:

  1. You can compare 1864 and 1945 to 2004...

  2. The War on Terrorâ„¢ wasn't a perpetual war...

  3. The American public as a whole had been asked to sacrifice the way it had to in the pervious conflicts instead of having the war out on the frontier of the American Empire, held away from public view as much as possible. Instead, we're told to get out there and shop!

So the 'are you better off' argument is right and good in this election.
