Economic Statistics

Kerry needs to start preparing for this now. He can't keep pretending the economy's in trouble. He should latch onto studies and expert analysis that shows the limited effect of the Bush tax cut and the fact that a better structured tax cut would have done more. He can keep talking about the future problems set up by the deficit. Right now, though, he's just racing the clock hoping the election comes before people realize things are improving. It is interesting, just from an observational perspective, that all of the statistics cited by both Bush and Kerry are accurate and paint a completely different picture of the economy. But it's only a matter of months before the public starts to see Bush's side more. If it takes less than five months, Kerry's going to have a problem.
