A 2012 Election Question No One Is Asking

To the Editor:
After watching the Democratic convention last night, a simple question came to mind: Why didn’t a single speaker mention the fact that the present recession is world-wide?

As the Republicans continue to level their accusations, claiming that the Obama administration’s “failed economic policies” are to blame, no one has countered with the simple fact that we are not in it alone.

Nearly all of the world’s strongest economies find themselves in the exact same situation . . . from Germany, Great Britain, Italy and France, to Japan and China. To blame Barack Obama for the recession is no more than a thinly veiled political ploy.
