President Obama once said that if he doesn’t turn our economy around, he would be a one-term president.  Now he says that the question

is not just about how we’re doing today, it’s about how we’re doing tomorrow.

But as the Progressive’s hero, John Maynard Keynes once said

In the long run we are all dead.

Indeed.  Americans are hurting today.  Today, the labor force is shrinking to historic lows as people give up on finding a job.  Today, people can’t pay their bills.  Today, people are losing their homes.  Today, people are becoming ever more dependent on food stamps.

No, as Obama said in another of his sound-bite slogans, “We can’t wait” for tomorrow.

Tomorrow, Tomorrow, I love you, tomorrow
You’re always a day away
