For now, at least, it feels like justice.
The blue states that voted for Barack Obama in 2008 are doing worse economically than the red states that voted for John McCain.
John Merline has run the data for Investor’s Business Daily. The states that voted for Obama are suffering the most from his policies.
Moreover, when it comes to this year’s “battleground states,” the purple states that will supposedly decide the election, they too have done worse under Obama than the red states.
Of course, the bluest of blue states, the ones doing the worst under Obama, and, most likely, under their Democratic governors and legislatures, will still vote for Obama this year.
They are living proof that the Democratic Party is not the province of those who are smarter than everyone else. It is the province of those who are most in need of politically-motivated distraction and who are most likely to ignore reality.
