I know a lot of people who like to say, “I’m a social liberal, and a fiscal conservative.” The notion that Republicans are better at money is widespread: we’ve all heard the joke about

Bonus: Romney’s tax plan. And, bonus: Obama’s tax calculator.

And how’s Obama doing, having been given the worst economy since The Great Depression and a fiercely partisan Congress?

“This is your record,” Andrew Sullivan writes in a post titled A Tip For Obama For Tomorrow. “For fuck’s sake, stop running away from it.”
