Election Issues 2008: August 2007 Archives

Many think the '08 elections will be all about Iraq. They are wrong. A co-equal issue for voters in '08 will be pocketbook issues. The current sub-prime mortgage debacle has spill over effects that are going to hit millions of voters with either pocketbook losses or pocketbook anxiety.

A majority of voters have never bought into the Bush administration's rosy economic rhetoric. But, now, growing percentages of them are workers being laid off; companies are paring back, consumers are hitting Wal-Mart's and Home Depot's revenues negatively, and health care continues to eat bigger chunks of paychecks. GDP is now projected between 2.4 and 2.7 percent, and more bears are throwing the Recession word around (inappropriately, I might add.)
